Tremors is one of the best B movies ever made.

Even the sequels were pretty darn good for what they are, low budget monster movies.

I'm kind of hoping for another Salt. I'm a sucker for the Russian spy shiat.

I was initially looking forward to it, but after seeing An Unexpected Journey, the Hobbit trilogy can suck my balls.

/seriously Jackson, hire a farking editor.

MayoSlather: Flint Ironstag: Avatar 2 is going to fail. It'll take money, but nowhere near what the first took. The Avatar sequels will be like the Matrix sequels, people will be saying they shouldn't have bothered.

/Of course The Matrix was actually good, and not just 3D gimmick.

I don't know that the sequels will surpass the original's box office, however they will likely be wildly successful. You may not like Avatar or Cameron, but he knows how to hit the sweet spot when it comes to making movies with mass appeal.


He's made some great films, not knocking Cameron. But Avatar was a dire, by the numbers, cliché filled film. (Just happens to meet a girl, just happens to fall for her, she just happens to be the chiefs daughter, who just happens to be due to marry a nasty guy..... When she said "Only three people have ever tamed that animal" I would have bet my house that Sully would be the forth. Not a single thing happened in that film that was remotely surprising or original.)
The 3D gimmick/craze was its only selling point, and 3D is fading away.

Many of those are never going to make it out of development, and a couple sound like they are already dead.

And, apparently, "in the works" means that someone has talked about it or mentioned it in passing.

For example;

Hancock
Director Peter Berg, while promoting his more-commercially-successful-than-you-might-think blockbuster Battleship last year admitted that a second Hancock film was still a distinct possibility. He's still interested in making another one, and reports that Will Smith is up for it too. It's finding a space in everyone's schedule that's apparently the ongoing problem.

"They're interested in doing a sequel" does not mean a sequel is in the works!

There are a few more examples in the list.

I only looked at the first couple pages but what can I say, from a money making standpoint most of them make sense. Except....

Disney now owns the rights to the Indiana Jones franchise

If Shia LeBeof puts on a fedora, you will be reading about me in the news the next day.

Jesus. Reading through that list is like trying to pick through a ton of dog shiat to find a couple of industrial-grade diamonds.

This is James Cameron we're talking about. He turned down T3 because he couldn't see a story worth telling. His record is pretty phenomenal, from The Terminator to now, both critically and financially. He's also directed two of the best sequels ever.


He's going to have to come up with a good reason why the humans depicted in the movie, who had no qualms against using modern armor, infantry and air units against aliens who could fight back with bows and arrows, don't simply come back and drop a few rocks on them from orbit.

Oh, I don't know about that. The ship that comes to Earth is obviously something of an oddity. It sure doesn't seem like it arrived intentionally with a specific purpose and had the feel of a refugee ship of sorts. It's implied that the alien that leaves is going to get help, but he doesn't know what waits for him, either. And some of the surviving scientists must now know that the fuel has strange properties as well. You could conceivably have a sequel that doesn't even address the alien that escaped or his return, but the rampant paranoia and preparation for it

Madbassist1: When did a movie that makes 300 million dollars become "not very successful"??

And now you know why it made a billion bucks (which is the goal of any commercial filmmaker, sorry)

I really liked Goon, but Jay Baruchel was the worst part. He wasn't an endearing character, just an annoying one. I could even get past the overuse of the F word, but I was hoping for his character to be on screen the least.

killro: Dear god, they are making another American Pie movie? Are they going to be getting drunk and banging in a retirement home, or what?


The only half way funny character in those movies besides Eugene Levy was Stiffler and if he's still acting like a high school douchebag at 35 it'll just be pathetic.

Austin Powers is played out unless they change it up to be a spoof on the Bourne films with a lot of shaky cam and Myers attempting to play it straight and serious but ultimately failing.

For Terminator 5, I'm assuming given Arnold's age and the nature of the character, his part will be rendered through Pixar. I'm available, call me, guys.
