“The Second Best” installment of the Fox Searchlight franchise about a group of retirees living in a hotel in India revolves around hotel manager Sonny (Dev Patel) trying to get his hands on a second property, now that the Exotic Marigold Hotel has nearly reached capacity — a problem that is putting new arrivals played by Gere and Tamsin Greig in a predicament.

Director John Madden and writer Ol Parker both returned to work on the sequel, which hits theaters on March 6.
