The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel 2 is now titled The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel which is an interesting titling scheme. I know a new hotel is opened in the film, but I also wonder if the title is a bit of meta-commentary on the nature of sequels and that one should temper their expectations lest they assume this installment matches the majesty of the first. I haven’t seen the first film, so I’m not qualified to say.
The sequel was directed by John Madden and written by Ol Parker. It stars Judi Dench, Maggie Smith, Bill Nighy, Dev Patel, Penelope Wilton, Celia Imrie, Ronald Pickup, Diana Hardcastle, David Strathairn and Richard Gere. Hit the jump for The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel trailer! The film hits theaters on March 6th, 2015.
