Several months ago genre champions Magnet Releasing announced their acquisition of [REC] 2 for US distribution, though they hadn't clarified how wide of a release they'd be giving the film. Now they have. Starting on June 4th, fans of the Spanish cinema verite franchise will be able to watch the film via On Demand, Xbox Live, Playstation Video Store, Amazon and Vudu. About a month later, Magnet Releasing will then be giving the excellent sequel a limited theatrical run on July 9th. Check out the official synopsis and (British) trailer for [REC] 2 below:
"[REC] 2 is the anticipated sequel to the terrifying cult favorite, [REC]. Directors Jaume Balagueró and Paco Plaza return for [REC] 2, maintaining the same claustrophobic concept or the original while finding new means of delivering scares to the audience. [REC] told the story of a quarantined apartment building infected with a ferocious virus that spread a terrifying form of demonic possession to the trapped inhabitants. [REC] 2 kicks off shortly after the events of the first film, when a medical officer and a SWAT team armed with video cameras are sent into the sealed off apartment building to try and neutralize the situation."
