A new trailer for director John Madden’s (Shakespeare in Love) sequel The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel has been released online. The follow-up is actually a bit meta, as Dev Patel’s Sonny sets out to franchise his popular Indian hotel by expanding and opening the aptly named Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel. Nearly all of the main cast from the first film returns, plus new additions Richard Gere and David Strathairn. I found the original to be a sweet movie with a bit of a kick thanks to Maggie Smith’s zingers, and while the nature of sequels makes me doubt this follow-up will match the quality of that first film, the prospect of seeing this cast play off of each other once again is enticing enough.
Check out the new international Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel trailer after the jump. The film also stars Judi Dench, Bill Nighy, Celia Imrie, Ronald Pickup, Penelope Wilton, Diana Hardcastle, Tena Desae, Lillete Dubey, and Tamsin Greig. The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel opens in theaters on March 6, 2015.
