Paramount Pictures and MGM stumbled across a hidden treasure after the release of Hot Tub Time Machine back in 2010. Having pulled in a surprising $46 million worldwide, it wasn’t long before the studios fast-tracked development of a sequel, reuniting the bumbling crew for another bout of time-travelling madness.
And so, we’ve arrived at Hot Tub Tim Machine 2, which recently debuted a raunchy red band clip in anticipation of its release in theaters next month. Bringing together Rob Corddy, Clark Duke, Craig Robinson and Adam Scott, the comedy sequel will see the group overcome with nostalgia, deciding to revisit some of their formative years with all the benefit — or lack thereof — hindsight.
Either way, the gang will be tasked with altering a version of the future in an attempt to save the past, which just so happens to be the present. Continuity be damned, Hot Tub Time Machine 2 looks to be more of the same from the creative team at Paramount, and given the breakout success of its predecessor five years ago, don’t be too surprised if the film manages to light up the box office in an otherwise quiet month.
The crew will be back for an all-new time-hopping adventure along with newcomers Gillian Jacobs and Chevy Chase — of Community fame — when Hot Tub Time Machine 2 arrives in theaters on February 20, 2015.
In the sequel, when Lou (Corddry) finds himself in trouble, Nick (Robinson) and Jacob (Duke) fire up the hot tub time machine in an attempt to get back to the past. But they inadvertently land in the future. Now they have to alter the future in order to save the past… which is really the present.
