Hawaii, Paris, Adam Sandler and Jennifer Aniston and a great big mystery – Murder Mystery 2 is following the same formula as Netflix’s hit 2019 comedy caper, but upping the ante.

More glamorous, bigger stunts and with even more laughs, Murder Mystery 2 once again puts Nick and Audrey Spitz (Sandler and Aniston) at the centre of a major crime case that spirals out of control.

The comedy legends are joined by Adeel Akhtar (Utopia, Sherwood), who plays their friend Maharaja. After inviting the couple to his glamourous island wedding, he gets kidnapped and held for ransom.

A first-look trailer from Netflix (above) suggests that Murder Mystery 2 has been worth the wait for fans of the original, as the Spitz finally get to visit Paris – but perhaps not in the manner they planned.
