Right off the bat, it should be noted: Neil Marshall did not direct the sequel. That's not to say anything nasty or negative about The Descent: Part 2, but if you're looking for a reason to whine about how "It'll never be as good as the first one," then there you go.

Beyond that, however, my anticipation of this sequel just got elevated by this brand-new trailer clip the new trailer clip that Lionsgate just yanked from YouTube, darnit, although this site seems to still have it posted. The director is first-timer Jon Harris, who worked as editor on several films (including the very well-cut Eden Lake), and one can't help but feel for the guy. His first big feature and everyone's already whining about the absence of Neil Marshall. Also, one of the credited screenwriters is James Watkins, he of the underrated My Little Eye and (also) Eden Lake.
