The first movie follows New York cop Nick Spitz (Sandler), who whisks his wife Audrey (Aniston) on holiday in an attempt to fix their marriage, only to end up getting framed for the murder of an elderly billionaire.
And now a trailer has landed for Murder Mystery 2, showing the couple with another whodunit on their hands – except this time it’s in Paris.
The footage opens with the couple at home discussing their invitation to their friend Maharajah’s lavish wedding, which Audrey suggests they avoid given that the last time they went to a huge event ‘a lot of people died’.
Spitz won’t listen, however, and off they head to the wedding where, of course, trouble soon follows as the groom is kidnapped for ransom. Keep scrolling to watch the trailer below.
