It's been a little over a year since a quiet, unassuming film called 365 Days hit Netflix and gained itself quite a lot of viewers...OK, who am I kidding? 365 Days was neither quiet nor unassuming, as the highly sexed hit racked up so many views around the world that it ended 2020 as the most watched film on the streamer, petition to have it removed be damned. Fans have probably been wondering when the proposed sequel might get started, and it looks like the time is now, as the 365 Days sequel seems to have started filming. So, get ready for the sexytimes!
According to What's On Netflix, the sequel for 365 Days is finally in production, after having to delay the start of filming from last August, when it was originally supposed to begin. Principal photography just began a few days ago, on June 29, in Warsaw, Mazowieckie, Poland. The stars, Anna Maria Sieklucka and Michele Morrone, are said to have been confirmed to reprise their roles for the new movie, as has Magdalena Lamparska, who played the best friend to Sieklucka's character. The only confirmed new character so far is Nacho, who is set to be played by actress Simone Susinna.
As you will likely recall, the film centers on a Polish woman, Laura (Sieklucka), who goes on vacation in Italy only to be abducted by the rich, successful, and sinfully hot mob boss, Massimo (Morrone). He's convinced that Laura is the woman he saw after being shot many years ago, and has kidnapped her in the hope that she will fall in love with him, and is keeping her in captivity for a year...You know, to really give their love a good chance.
Obviously, this plot is the reason many (many) of those who watched (or maybe didn't watch) 365 Days wanted the film removed from Netflix, with the complaint being that the film glorifies sexual abuse and even Stockholm Syndrome, after Welsh singer Duffy called the movie out for the same thing.
While 365 Days did, in fact, garner a lot of terrible reviews from critics and audiences alike, people were still pretty transfixed by one aspect of the movie: the incredibly real-seeming, and very intense sex scenes. There are several throughout the film, with one being an extended (tee hee) scene that takes place on a yacht and involves a lot of positions, and whether people ended up liking the movie overall or not, they surely tuned in to see what all the fuss was about when it came to those wild sexytimes.
The impact was such that many viewers came to the conclusion that Anna Maria Sieklucka and Michele Morrone had actual sex on screen, though Morrone dismissed that theory immediately.
While we don't have any firm details on the story for the sequel right now, the 365 Days ending left off on a major cliffhanger that will need to be answered. Also, the movie is based on the Polish erotic novel, 365 dni, which actually has two sequels itself, and from what I've read about the contents of those books, fans will be in for quite the basically naked, very real-looking, sexytimes-filled film.
While there's no set release date for the 365 Days sequel yet, it is scheduled to debut at some point next year, so check our 2022 new movie release schedule to see when it's added.
