Title: Sequels You'd Love to See
Post by: RottingCorpse on September 06, 2005, 04:26:17 PM
So, I ran across this little bit of cinematic news today . . .

* * *

Kelli Maroney, who starred in the sci-fi classic “Night of the Comet” as Sam (“the little girl with the big gun”), will reprise her role in the sequel, NIGHT OF THE COMET II, which she will co-produce with Charlie Mason for his company, Ride the Rail Entertainment, which is clearing the rights.

The original film, long unavailable on DVD or video, was written and directed by Thom Eberhardt, and starred Maroney, Mary Woronov, Robert Beltran, Geoffrey Lewis and Catherine Mary Stewart, some of whom will reprise their original roles.

“I’m thrilled to be able to bring this one back,” said Maronrey, dropping into character as Sam the Cheerleader. “Like, what’s up with it not being out there? I’m so sure it totally has to be….”

In the original “Night of the Comet,” a comet wipes out most of life on Earth, leaving two Valley Girls (Maroney and Stewart) to fight evil flesh-eating zombies who survive the disaster. The zombies are led by mad scientists Lewis and Woronov. The girls hook up with a friendly truck driver (Beltran) and survive, presumably to repopulate the Earth.

The original film was financed by the Film Development Fund and released domestically by Atlantic Releasing Corp, Paramount, and CBS-Fox Video.


* * *

I didn't know whether to cheer or cry, but then again, there are probably worse movies having sequels made from them and worse sequels being made. (My Girl 2 anyone?)

So, what's your favorite movie that doesn't have a sequel that could have one?

I always opt for The Professional. (Or Leon if you want to be Tina Fey about the whole thing.) Supposedly a sequel has been in the works for years, but who knows if it will ever happen. Still, I'd love to see Mathilda (Natalie Portman) ten years down the road having to take out some sum'biches with all her kick ass french hit man training.

I vote for Beautiful Girls, strangely also with a young Natalie Portman--along with the rest of a great cast.

As long as Comet gets a DVD release, that's fine.  Eberhardt's really dropped the ball.  He and I exchanged emails about a year ago and he was totally out of touch with reality..

Much of his early catalog is lost or in dispute.

Addendum to my first post:

Army of Darkness II: yes... I realize that it, in and of itself, is a sequel to a sequel, but goddamn... that ending at S-Mart is fucking loaded with potential for the next movie.  I would be totally stoked to hear of another one.

Indiana Jones IV:  I've heard rumors of Ford coming back to play his classic role one last time, but as far as I can tell, they're just rumors.  Last I heard, he wanted to see them turned into a franchise like Bond (RAAAAAAD!)

Terminator 4:  I don't care what anyone says... these movies just keep getting better and better.  3 had me glued to my chair for 2 hours and the ending was astounding

Akira:  Prequel, sequel... I don't give a shit.  The first one was so awesome, it can't possibly hurt to tell another portion of this epic graphic novel, provided the same people make it.

I love the Cubes!

Cube 2 is weird.  They're in the "Hypercube," but it's just the same shit, except with a twist ending.  The Hypercube is all clean and glowing, which really hurts the movie.  They've lost that grungy stuff.  The traps are stupid, too.  Bad special efects.  But, hey, it doesn't really suck.  I wasn't offended by it.

Cube 0 is my favorite.

Joe Siegel, the Good Morning America film critic, walked out of Clerks II and made a point of being an asshole as he left. Apparently, he shouted about  how he "Had never walked out of a movie in 30 years" and some shit. Anyway, Kevin Smith wrote about it on his MySpace:

Then Smith went on the Opie and Anthony radio show and was talking about it. They called up Joe Siegel and Kevin was lambasting him. It was fucking brilliant! Here's a link to it. Enjoy:

Post by: Cassander on July 23, 2006, 02:52:36 AM
one of these days I'm going to knock some sense into you, RC.  I love you, but if, as a filmmaker yourself, you don't see the pure, shallow, desperate motivations behind even CONCEIVING "Clerks II" after a) Smith already made 4 sequels to Clerks and b) promised that after Jay and Silent Bob Strike back that the View Askiewniverse was no more, I gotta call you out.  I mean, I haven't seen the movie, but I see absolutely nothing even slightly humorous in the trailer.  I mean, seriously, that "Star Wars and dick jokes" well has got to be almost bone dry by now, don't you think?  I say if Siegel walked out on it after all the pure shit he's probably seen in his lifetime (think about it...this man probably didn't even walk out of CORKY ROMANO), then it's probably awful.  Plus, I never really knew this when I was a big fan, but KS is such a drama queen that it's ridiculous. 

Sorry for the rant, and I know I'll probably see this movie at some point, but it's going to be on my terms (i.e., free download).  I ain't giving this mofo any more money, especially after he let Fletch slip out of his hands, has started to ride Jason Lee's coattails instead of vice versa, insists on putting his wife in his movies, and wrote a movie in which Dante Hicks, the quintessential loser hero of the nineties, somehow is able to convince Rosario Dawson to let him touch her private parts. 

I say let him be a starving artist for awhile.  The bitch could stand to lose about 150 pounds anyway.

Post by: RottingCorpse on July 23, 2006, 05:21:15 PM
I don't care why Kevin Smith made Clerks II, I'm jazzed to see it. The original Clerks was one of those movies that inspired me to be a filmmaker. He captured what life in the suburbs as a twenty-something was, at least for me.

I hear you on Smith in some regards. Still, when he's good (Clerks, Chasing Amy), he's amazing.
Title: Re: Sequels You'd Love to See
Post by: Matt on July 23, 2006, 08:32:10 PM
See, Chasing Amy is the film that secured Kevin Smith for me. He made a movie about male and female relationships and got it right.
Title: Re: Sequels You'd Love to See
Post by: monkey! on July 23, 2006, 10:52:46 PM
Blah - he's still lucky.

He should not have made Clerks 2... but I may be proved wrong by it being ace. I hope for all our sakes that it IS ace.

Post by: Cassander on July 25, 2006, 12:04:29 AM
god, i love being right all the time.

dled this tonight out of sentimentality for Kevin (remember, I am the guy who got him to come to my college for this thingie (http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00007149S/qid=1153796408/sr=8-1/ref=pd_bbs_1/103-0034346-4606272?%5Fencoding=UTF8&v=glance&n=130)), and now I'm really glad I didn't let my friends convince me to go see it in the theater this weekend. 

If any of you guys enjoy it, just ask yourselves this: would I have liked this if it was the debut film of a independent writer/director?  Seriously, I hate to admit it, and I think I've discovered that the reason I'm so down on this movie is because I admired Clerks and Kevin Smith's story in the first place and hate to see him do something like this, but Kevin Smith just pulled a George Lucas.

III sucked horribly.  It's only good if they bring back the other two cops as well.  When was the last time Judge Reinhold was in... anything?

Jan De Bont surfs 'Point Break' sequel
RGM, Essential will exec produce
By Gregg Goldstein

CANNES -- Seventeen years after "Point Break" washed up in movie theaters, surf's up for the sequel, "Point Break: Indo," with Jan de Bont aboard to direct.

RGM Entertainment and Essential Entertainment will exec produce this Asia-based follow-up to director Kathryn Bigelow's original, which starred de Bont's "Speed" lead Keanu Reeves as an FBI agent casing a gang of surfer bank robbers. The new film will take place 20 years after the disappearance of one of the criminal surfers (Patrick Swayze).

Both the original and sequel are written by W. Peter Iliff. Plot details and possible character reprises have not been disclosed, but the film will shoot in Singapore and Southeast Asia.

Taylor Morgan Pictures' Chris Taylor and John Morgan will produce. RGM's Devesh Chetty, Essential's Jere Hausfater and Neil Kaplan, and the Paradigm-repped de Bont will executive produce.

Quote
The Care Bears appeared in their own television series from 1985 to 1988, in addition to three feature films: The Care Bears Movie (1985), Care Bears Movie II: A New Generation (1986), and The Care Bears Adventure in Wonderland (1987).

In 2002, the bears were relaunched with new toys. Made by Play-Along Toys, the new toys offer features such as bellies that light up when pressed, bears that do aerobics, and glow-in-the-dark bears. As part of this comeback, the Bears have appeared in two computer-animated movies: Journey to Joke-a-lot (2004) and Big Wish Movie (2005).

This is one of those "haha made you look!" jokes.  Except it's funny even though there's something to find.  Like, "Hey, there's an ugly girl behind you!"  *turns head*

I didn't want to sully our sci-fi thread with this shite, but if you need ammo for why Blade Runner ISN'T one the best sci-fi films of all time the fact that they're spitting it into the remake/sequel machine should help.

Quote
LOS ANGELES, CA, MARCH 3, 2011—Warner Bros-based financing and production company Alcon Entertainment (“The Blind Side,” “The Book of Eli”) co-founders and co-Chief Executive Officers Broderick Johnson and Andrew Kosove, in the most significant property acquisition negotiations in the Company’s 13-year history, are in final discussions to secure film, television and ancillary franchise rights to produce prequels and sequels to the iconic 1982 science-fiction thriller “Blade Runner.”

Alcon is negotiating to secure the rights from producer-director Bud Yorkin, who will serve as producer on “Blade Runner” along with Kosove and Johnson. Cynthia Sikes Yorkin will co-produce. Frank Giustra and Tim Gamble, CEO’s of Thunderbird Films, will serve as executive producers. Alcon’s franchise rights would be all-inclusive, but exclude rights to remake the original. The Company, however, may produce projects based on situations introduced in the original film.

The project would be distributed domestically by Warner Bros. International rights are yet to be determined. Johnson and Kosove stated: “We are honored and excited to be in business with Bud Yorkin. This is a major acquisition for our company, and a personal favorite film for both of us. We recognize the responsibility we have to do justice to the memory of the original with any prequel or sequel we produce. We have long-term goals for the franchise, and are exploring multi-platform concepts, not just limiting ourselves to one medium only.”
Among its many distinctions, “Blade Runner” has been singled out as one of the greatest movies of all time by countless polls and media outlets, and overwhelmingly as the greatest science-fiction film of all time by a majority of genre publications.

Released by Warner Bros. almost 30 years ago, "Blade Runner" was adapted by Hampton Fancher and David Peoples from Philip K. Dick's novel “Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?" and directed by Ridley Scott following his landmark “Alien.”

The film was nominated for two Academy Awards (Best Visual Effects, and Best Art Direction). “Blade Runner” was selected for preservation in the United States National Film Registry by the Library of Congress as being "culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant."

The film was selected for preservation in the United States National Film Registry in 1993 and is frequently taught in university courses. In 2007, it was named the 2nd most visually influential film of all time by the Visual Effects Society. Alcon’s COO Scott Parish and head of business affairs David Fierson are negotiating on behalf of the Company.

And Fifth Element did it better!

I consider it to be the intelligent, non-emo kid's Blade Runner.

Neil Marshall's Dog Soldiers is still part part of the horror conversation almost ten years after its' release, so it makes sense that Dog Soldiers 2 is something of a long awaited project.

While Dog Soldiers 2 is still in pre-production, its producers at Kismet Entertainment have started rolling on the Dog Soldiers: Legacy web series while they get warmed (and to get you warmed up) up for their feature. Today we have the first installment in the web series, Red, along with some stills from the shoot!

The Dog Soldiers: Red trailer" brings back a sense of the unique werewolf style that we have all come to love from the original 'Dog Soldiers' film... Based on a modern-day version of “Little Red Riding Hood”, multiple members of Allen’s family took part in the Ryan Lightbourn-directed trailer including his grandmother Pat “Nan” Allen who plays the awaiting grandma and his sister Emmy Allen who portrays “Red”.... Kismet Entertainment is also in the early stages of pre-production for the first sequel to the 2002 cult hit 'Dog Soldiers'.

My sister was obsessed with Top Gun the summer it came out on VHS. (1987? '88? It all moved slower back then.) We watched it at least once a week that summer. Kelley McGinnis's legs woke up something in me.

The theme song alone on this fills me with a warm nostalgia. This looks like a straight up soft reboot a'la The Force Awakens, but if the young bucks are half as much fun as Goose, Iceman, and the rest, it'll be a nice ride.

I tried to find a Matrix thread, but couldn't.

The first 45 minutes of Matrix 4 hit all my soft spots. I'd have watched a whole movie of Neo figuring out if he even wanted to be unplugged again. All the meta, "is this sequel really necessary" shit was kind of fun. Then Neo got unplugged and I lost interest. It as just "Hey Lana, can you play the hits... badly?" The production value felt weirdly cheap, like i was watching a SyFy original that ran out of money, so the producer had to blow some rich coke-head to get the rest of the cash. We think of the original Matrix as some CGI masterpiece, but if you watch it now, you realize how much it is just old fashion camera and practical effects. Matrix 4 felt like it was, er, a fake reality made in a computer.

I don't know if it's the most meaningless and unnecessary sequel ever made, but it's certainly needs to be in the conversation.

What I found odd (and amusing) is that the whole point of the movie is that it's the most meaningless and unnecessary sequel ever made. That carries all the way through to the post credits sequence.
