The Descent part 2 gets a trailer. It's the same, but different.

It appears that Shauna McDonald is making a return appearance and Natalie Mendoza appears in some capacity. So I guess this means the original ending is no longer in continuity? That's a shame as it was a stunningly powerful finale to an awfully good fright flick. I honestly can't remember the last time a sequel actually included the 'part' suffix in its title. The first was, I believe, The Godfather Part II in 1974 (said sequel was also the first to use a roman numeral or even number the second chapter accordingly). Second of all, I'm almost amused at how Warner Bros. and co are basically acknowledging that this sequel is pretty much the exact same movie as the original picture. I was lucky enough to see the original in its original British form well before the theatrical release, and I enjoyed it as much as anyone else. This literally looks like a carbon. I'm not saying there aren't plenty of sequels that are basically bigger-budgeted remakes of their originals (Terminator 2: Judgment Day comes to mind), but the previews usually attempt to hide that fact. The shamelessness is almost endearing.
