Shortly after that announcement, A24 released a short teaser for the sequel, which, although it doesn’t contain any actual footage from the movie, gives fans a taste of what they can expect when it finally hits theaters.
Opening with the classic “steadfast noise” found on worn-out VHS tapes, the trailer eventually moves into a wide, wide shot of Hollywood Hills as the graphic identifies the footage as coming from “Los Angeles, 1985.”
