I have no idea why they still call it a sequel when the 2nd movie’s timeline is a few years before the 1st movie. Anyway, the concept is like Alien and Aliens…when Alien has 1 creature and Aliens have multiple 😛
I am still crossing my fingers that the 2nd movie will be as good (or better?) than the first.
