There’s another storm on the horizon and this one is headed straight for Russia. After delighting audiences with the story of a meek teacher turned ruthless drag queen in Hurricane Bianca, RuPaul’s Drag Race winner Bianca Del Rio is back in Hurricane Bianca: From Russia with Hate.
“Just when you thought your cinemas and televisions were safe, HURRICANE BIANCA is back and fiercer than ever,” said star Bianca Del Rio in a release. “We were blown away by the response to the first film (no pun intended), and we couldn’t wait to reunite to tell another story with this ridiculous group of talented people. The whole crew is back plus some very exciting additions, and who better to take on Russian than a nasty drag queen?”
After being released from jail, Bianca’s nemesis, Vice Principal Deborah “Debbie” Ward (Rachel Dratch) sets a plan in motion to ship Bianca off to Russia with the lure of a teaching award and cash prize. The film will also feature a gaggle of other appearances by D.J. “Shangela” Pierce, Doug Plaut, Molly Ryman, Dot-Marie Jones, Darienne Lake, Mrs. Kasha Davis, Cheyenne Jackson, Janeane Garofalo, Wanda Sykes and more.
Hurricane Bianca: From Russia with Hate releases from Wolfe Video on digital platforms and in theaters May 18, 2018, and Bianca Del Rio herself will host premiere screenings of the film at San Francisco’s Castro Theater May 14 and New York’s SVA Theatre on May 15.
