The Boy 2 Final Trailer Celebrates National Make a Friend Day
What better way to celebrate National Day to Make a Friend than with a new trailer for a scary horror film featuring a possessed and realistic doll? This is precisely what the folks at STX Films thought, because they used the holidays as an excuse to reveal the final trailer for Brahms: The Boy II hit cinemas later this month. As we can see, there is a friendship at the center of this film, but it's probably not the kind that the creators of this annual celebration had in mind.
The trailer for Boy 2 starts showing us an apparently happy family as they move into a new house far away from the city. Quite quickly, the young boy finds Brahms, whom we knew in the first film and makes a friend. We see the family restoring the old doll before things get twisted. One blow, in particular, makes things particularly dark for another young child. The sequence is accompanied by a scary voiceover that gives us a little window on what we can expect from the rest.
"Watch out for his story, Brahms has never been more than a doll. To relive, he needs a friend. His deadly rules will never end. If you do break, it's better to pray, because Brahms wants more than just to play. "
It seems like they are playing a little bit on the mystery here and will dig into the story of the doll. Apart from that, the trailer plays like many horror movie trailers in the studio. Lots of disturbing images with very little context, some scares and other jokes. It is undoubtedly the attempt at an unexpected expansion of mythology that is the most surprising part of this trailer, as it would have been easy enough for them to just make another simple scary doll movie.
Brahms: The Boy focuses on a young family moving into a guest house on the Heelshire Mansion estate, where their young son quickly makes a disturbing new friend under the shape of a strangely realistic doll which he calls Brahms. The cast includes Katie Holmes, Owain Yeoman, Christopher Convery and Ralph Ineson. William Brent Bell returns to the director's chair after directing the first episode of this aspiring horror franchise. Stacey Menear, who wrote the original, also returns to write the sequel. So even if we are following a new cast, the creative team for the first film has been largely maintained.
Tom Rosenberg, Gary Lucchesi, Richard Wright, Eric Reid, Jim Wedaa, Roy Lee and Matt Berenson is a producer. The Boy, released in 2016, was something sneaky, totaling $ 64 million worldwide. So, as these things go, we get a sequel. Brahms: The Boy 2 should be released in theaters on February 21 of STX Films. Don't forget to check out the new trailer for yourself.
