According to its official synopsis, the film follows “global pop sensation Skye Riley” who is about to begin her world tour. However, she  “begins experiencing increasingly terrifying and inexplicable events. Overwhelmed by the escalating horrors and the pressures of fame, Skye is forced to face her dark past to regain control of her life before it spirals out of control.”

How to Steam ‘Smile 2’

Since Paramount Pictures is distributing the horror flick, viewers can expect to stream it on Paramount+ after it hits theaters.

What Happened at the End of ‘Smile’?

Sosie Bacon‘s character, Rose, is trapped and possessed by the entity after it’s revealed that Rose’s trauma comes from a childhood memory — when she let her abusive mother die. In the final moments of the movie, Joel rushes to save Rose, breaking down a door only to watch her setting herself on fire. As a result, the curse is passed onto Joel, whose fate in the sequel faces the same problem in one scene with Naomi’s character Skye, according to the trailer.
