jackcarter -> Sequels to recent flops? (20/12/2012 2:02:42 PM)

Sequels/prequels to underperforming movies are done but it usually takes 20 or 30 years when the film has gone from cult to near mainstream status (Tron, Blade Runner, The Thing etc)...but why wait?

For recent underperformers it seems to be either franchise death or total reboot (Star Trek, Hulk, Superman). but what if a studio just ignored the recent flop and pushed ahead with the sequel regardless (they might have done it already but cant think of any off hand). They do it for movies that make ok money but donít really warrant sequels (Journey to centre earth, GI Joe, etc)...and obviously for movies that are huge but again dont really deserve any (Pirates 4, TF4), but wouldnt it be great if say Miami Vice II for example (directed by Mann starring Farrel and Fox again) was in the works or Starsky & Hutch II (set in the 80s)

I reckon The A-Team was worthy of a sequel.




jackcarter -> RE: What sequels to recent flops would you most want? (20/12/2012 2:05:48 PM)

agreed[:)] Mr T wouldve probably appeared in a sequel




Deviation -> RE: What sequels to recent flops would you most want? (20/12/2012 2:26:11 PM)

There was so much sequel and thematic potential in the Dredd reboot, so much potential...




Scott_ -> RE: What sequels to recent flops would you most want? (20/12/2012 2:28:26 PM)

Needed more Serenity.




DancingClown -> RE: What sequels to recent flops would you most want? (20/12/2012 2:37:58 PM)

I really enjoyed Push, there was a lot of potential there.

Is that definitely not happening? Shame.




Deviation -> RE: What sequels to recent flops would you most want? (20/12/2012 2:50:08 PM)

It's gloomy, and I've never heard of a sequel coming out of a massive flop, at least a proper one on the screen.




jackcarter -> RE: What sequels to recent flops would you most want? (20/12/2012 2:59:23 PM)

yeah i think Dredd will come out on top for this. whoever is in charge should just go 'f**k it lets do Dredd II f** the money'

maybe Dredd will be like Tron or Blade Runner and in years to come (hopefully not 30) will get its sequel

Yep, Dredd is one film id love to se sequels too.Its one of the best comic book based films iv ever seen and there is so much potential in a series that could explore this great universe.

Maybe it might be a big hit on Blu/dvd? Everyone buy multiple copies when it comes out on disc and lets get a sequel greenlit!




Titanm21 -> RE: What sequels to recent flops would you most want? (20/12/2012 3:46:57 PM)

Tango & Cash 2... set now... with them coming out of retirement

Agreed.Failing that, get Kurt to join Expendables 3.

Agreed although I would have preferred Firefly to continue personally.

Dredd is doing my fucking head in. There was no showing anywhere near me so I've been waiting bloody ages for the Bluray release. Seriously, what is it the fucking 80's again? I can't recall so long a turnover between cinema release and retail release in ages.




Dannybohy -> RE: What sequels to recent flops would you most want? (20/12/2012 3:54:05 PM)

GREEN LANTERN!!

I would love a sequel to this. The chemistry between the cast in this was great and the action was ridiculously fun.

Also would have liked more from the crew of Serenity.

I have to agree. Although I would request that the action scenes were edited a little more...coherently. Sometimes I just couldn't tell what was going on. Maybe I'm just getting old.

Chronicle 2.

Amazing film.




horribleives -> RE: What sequels to recent flops would you most want? (20/12/2012 8:15:42 PM)

I thought Chronicle was a hit?

It did $127 million on a $12 million budget, so technically yes. But it deserved so much more.




Zaphod121 -> RE: What sequels to recent flops would you most want? (20/12/2012 9:09:08 PM)

Chronicle 2 is in the works.

Oh god yes! It was such a fun movie, great action, great cast, fanboy dialogue, it's a real shame. Especially when resident evil gets recycled ever year.
I hear it wasn't that it diddnt make money just that the budget was so high so the profit was lower.




mclane1 -> RE: What sequels to recent flops would you most want? (20/12/2012 9:20:41 PM)

And......
The lost boys should have had a proper sequel!!




Zaphod121 -> RE: What sequels to recent flops would you most want? (20/12/2012 9:32:04 PM)

Would have liked THE ROCKETEER 2 back in the day...

jackcarter -> RE: What sequels to recent flops would you most want? (20/12/2012 10:21:57 PM)

if we're going back more than a few years then why not change the proposed Masters of the Universe reboot into a post Expendable Dolph starring sequel and have Frank Langella make good on his Arnie promise at the end of the credits?[:)]

No, the fight between Hannibal and Lynch in the container is completely unfollowable




spark1 -> RE: Sequels to recent flops? (21/12/2012 10:19:20 AM)

'executive decision' would have been a nice franchise for kurt russell.




Chronicle -> RE: Sequels to recent flops? (21/12/2012 10:34:47 AM)

I'd like to see another Tron movie. But with another director this time.

I wonder where they would go with that... More teenaged superhumans? Didnt seem to me at the end of the first there would be a natural sequel.
