Watch: Richard Gere Swivels His Hips in 'The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel' Trailer

While “The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel” was remarkable in its focus on a group of older characters, played by legendary actors like Maggie Smith, Judi Dench, Bill Nighy, Celie Imrie and Ronald Pickup, the sequel — aptly titled “The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel” — seems to focus a bit more on Dev Patel’s character and the younger crowd. There’s a wedding, lively dancing and…wait a minute is that Richard Gere shimmying his hips??
Here’s the synopsis for the sequel, courtesy of Fox Searchlight: “The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel is the expansionist dream of Sonny (Dev Patel), and it’s making more claims on his time than he has available, considering his imminent marriage to the love of his life, Sunaina (Tina Desai).  Sonny has his eye on a promising property now that his first venture, The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel for the Elderly and Beautiful, has only a single remaining vacancy – posing a rooming predicament for fresh arrivals Guy (Richard Gere) and Lavinia (Tamsin Greig). Evelyn and Douglas (Judi Dench and Bill Nighy) have now joined the Jaipur workforce, and are wondering where their regular dates for Chilla pancakes will lead, while Norman and Carol (Ronald Pickup and Diana Hardcastle) are negotiating the tricky waters of an exclusive relationship, as Madge (Celia Imrie) juggles two eligible and very wealthy suitors. Perhaps the only one who may know the answers is newly installed co-manager of the hotel, Muriel (Maggie Smith), the keeper of everyone’s secrets. As the demands of a traditional Indian wedding threaten to engulf them all, an unexpected way forward presents itself.”
“The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel” hits theaters on March 6. Check out the new U.S. trailer below:
