Last week, you could watch the movie Speed ​​in Planet, in which Sandra Bullock and Keanu Reeves shone. Tonight, the sequel Speed ​​2: Cruise Control returns only Sandra Bullock and director Jan de Bont from the original cast. He admitted that at first he did not intend to film a sequel, but a combination of circumstances convinced him to do so.

The film Hitrost was a great worldwide success and earned as much as 350 million US dollars, which is almost ten times more than the budget they had available. The Fox media company was so pleased with this that it assigned Jan de Bont the task of recording a sequel in the first week after the release of the hit. Jan ran into problems with this, as he did not record the first part with the idea that the second part could follow it, but at the same time he did not even think that there was a possibility for that.

Fox’s desire for a sequel was written into the fine print of the contract, so the director had no choice but to get to work. In the meantime, he read quite a few offers for screenplays, but none convinced him. One night, in a dream, he came up with the idea for a film.

He dreamed of a cruise ship crashing into an island, the consequences of which are predictably devastating, and the scene was so vivid that Jan decided that it would be the basis for his film Speed ​​2: Out of Control. “It’s always a lot of fun destroying huge and expensive things. It’s a lot more fun than destroying cardboard boxes. And what could be better than a five-star luxury cruise ship ending up in the middle of a hotel?” said the director about the idea.

With a few additions by the screenwriters, the film’s story tells about Annie Porter (Sandra Bullock), who is in love with a calm policeman Alex (Jason Patrick), whom she thinks is chasing thieves and other non-dangerous criminals. Little does she know that Alex is a member of an elite police unit that hunts down the most dangerous criminals.

When Annie finally discovers the truth, Alex redeems herself with a romantic Caribbean cruise. But there’s no time for romance on the luxury ship, as their plans are ruined by the emotionally unstable computer genius Geiger (Willem Dafoe). He takes control of the ship, and the fate of the passengers then rests in Alex’s hands.

You can watch the movie Speed ​​2: Cruise Control on Planet tonight at 10:30 PM! Before that, don’t miss watching the entertaining show This Week with Juret Godler, which will start at 9:30 p.m.! Even more content is waiting for you at Planeteka.si.
