'The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel' Trailer: Richard Gere Books a Stay (Video)

Judi Dench, Maggie Smith and Dev Patel reprise their roles in the sequel to the 2012 comedy hit.

Two newcomers stir up trouble in the first trailer for comedy sequel The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel.

In the film, the eponymous hotel is thriving when two new guests, including Guy (Richard Gere), disrupt the balance, especially since only one room is available. As the trailer reveals, the hotel's other denizens are quick to notice Guy's striking good looks, which leads to some sexy banter. 

Meanwhile, there is plenty of bickering and potential romance in store for the characters who return from 2012's sleeper hit The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel, including Douglas (Bill Nighy), Evelyn (Judi Dench) and Muriel (Maggie Smith). 

Dev Patel reprises his role as well, while David Strathairn joins the fray. John Madden (Shakespeare in Love) directed and Ol Parker wrote the script, as they did for the first film.

Fox Searchlight releases the sequel March 6, 2015.
