New Red Band ‘Don’t Breathe 2’ Trailer Unveils Eye-Popping Carnage

Sony Pictures

A brutal new red band trailer has been released for upcoming sequel Don’t Breathe 2, bringing back Stephen Lang as the blind guy you really, really don’t want to mess with.

Interestingly, where the 2016 horror-thriller depicted The Blind Man, aka Norman Nordstrom, as quite the demented and pained villain, the follow-up appears to be placing us on his side of things. The plot takes place years after the events of the first film and finds Norman living a quiet life and taking care of an 11-year-old girl, Phoenix (Madelyn Grace). When intruders turn up at his home again… well, they’re in for it.

The trailer below showcases a number of the film’s gnarlier moments, with Norman delivering supergluing, eye-popping, hammer-throwing goodness!

It’s an energetic and exciting trailer, although I do worry it’s giving away a tad too much when it comes to the takedowns. Unless, of course, these aren’t the kills, but merely a number of the injuries these baddies are in for? We’ll see.

Don’t Breathe co-writer Rodo Sayagues makes his directorial debut with the film, working from a script he penned with Fede Alvarez, director and co-writer of the first film.

Don’t Breathe 2, also starring Brendan Sexton, Adam Young, Bobby Schofield and Rocci Williams, hits US cinemas on August 13th and Australian cinemas on August 26th (all depending on lockdowns, of course).
