Hurricane Bianca: From Russia with Hate is a 2018 American comedy film directed by Matt Kugelman. It was released on May 18, 2018.[1] A sequel to the 2016 film Hurricane Bianca,[2] the film's plot centres on Bianca Del Rio (Roy Haylock) being driven to Russia by Debbie's (Rachel Dratch) campaign for revenge against her after being released from prison.[1]

The film's title is a reference to the James Bond film From Russia with Love (1963).


Deborah Ward has just been released from prison, and immediately plans to get her revenge on Richard Martinez, aka Bianca Del Rio. Deborah tricks Richard into going to Russia in hopes of getting him arrested. But when Deborah's daughter Carly and Richard's slightly mentally ill friend Rex are arrested and sent to a gulag Deborah and Richard must put their differences aside and rescue their loved ones.



Roger Moore of Movie Nation gave the film a 1.5 out of 4 stars, describing it as "a rude, crude, cameo-happy sequel to “Hurricane Bianca,” with the same crazy eye makeup and the same stars as the first daft dirty dog of a gay rights goof."[3]


As of February 2019, a third film titled Hurricane Bianca 3 is in the works and will include Sykes, Dratch and several Drag Race performers in its cast.[4] Del Rio stated in an interview that the film would be set in Africa.[5]
