I wasn't aware the movie industry needed saving. It seems to be doing fine.
 
2013-07-28 07:46:27 AM  
They're making a Warcraft movie? And it's expected to "save Hollywood"? Uggghhhh

Personally I'm looking forward to 2014 more, because that's when Inherent Vice comes out.
 
2013-07-28 08:32:31 AM  
Let me guess - more comic book dreck.
 
2013-07-28 08:33:53 AM  
Missing:  Jaws 19.
 
2013-07-28 08:34:50 AM  
Yeah....about that. List looks sucky to me.
 
2013-07-28 08:36:23 AM  
MI 5?, Pirates of Caribbean 5?  Fark No.

Except for the fact that it's directed by Duncan Jones. I'll be interesting to see if he can breathe new life into fantasy likes he's done with sci-fi.
 
2013-07-28 08:42:54 AM  
And 22 of them are sequels, reboots, or adaptions of pre-existing IPs from other mediums.
 
2013-07-28 08:43:56 AM  
Peanuts: director Steve Martino.

Is that Steve Martin's non-union Mexican equivalent?

AKA:   Herman's Head reboot.

Avatar 2 sweet jebus. I remember hearing they were still working on the software for the SFX for Avatar 4. Pass

Except for Pixar's "Inside Out".
 
2013-07-28 08:49:21 AM  
This just in: It takes Hollywood more than 6 months to make a movie. Subby, 2015 is fast-track.

There are an awful lot of 2's and 5's and reboots in there, so I'm not seeing much different. Ant Man and Inside Out sound promising, though.
 
2013-07-28 09:08:43 AM  
Uhh... Excuse Me
You need to understand the socioeconomic benefits of sequels, trilogy's, series, reruns, reboots, rethinkings, and reimaginings.

You as a viewer are like a precious flower that needs more water than piss. We mostly have piss but that is something we won't tell you.

What we will tell you is that it is easier for filmmaker s to go to the same well over and over again. Occasionally we find out that well is dry. That's when we are forced to walk over you the pretty flower. Unzip our pants and dribble another crappy movie all over you.
 
2013-07-28 09:08:58 AM  
Gotcha. The movie industry, which isn't in financial trouble, will save itself by producing sequels of the exact same things it has been making for the last 10 years.

Tyrone Slothrop: Peanuts: director Steve Martino.

Es muy bueno.
 
2013-07-28 09:22:05 AM  
If you're not interested in sequels and reboots then don't go watch them, there's always other movies playing at the theater. It's really quite simple people.
 
2013-07-28 09:25:08 AM  
All but one of those are sequels, reboots, or adaptions of another intellectual property.
 
2013-07-28 09:26:15 AM  
Too bad I won't be wasting my money on sequels by 2015. The Burton flick sounds interesting BUT only if he can somehow manage to find a way to not cast HBC and/or Depp.

calbert: deslidefied


Thanks.

My take on the list:

1: Spandex dreck.
2: Spandex dreck.
3: Sequelitis.
4: Based on a game. Will probably suck.
5: Pixar non-sequel. Oh, I'll see that.
6: Comic to CGA sequel. Meh.
7: Unknown to me. Will probably stay that way.
8: Based on a game. Will probably suck.
9: The Comic Strip That Will Not Die. (but should)
10. The Da Vinci Code (the book) was tiresome and eventually silly. What will make this movie any better?
11: Will probably suck, and I will probably watch it (got "huntsman" in my "DVDs to watch" stack. I think I might be a sucker for that sort of thing).
12: Spandex dreck.
13: Hoping for the best, expecting the worst. I'll watch if people who liked Empire Strikes Back like it.
14: No.
15: Read the books. I liked the first. The other two were tiresome sequels. I expect the same of the movies.
16: Sequelitis.
17: Sequelitis. Might watch anyway if I like #1 (not seen yet).
18: Sequelitis. OK so it's a reboot. It's still a sequel.
19: His movies are pretty, but not necessarily good (charlie, wonderland). Maybe.
20: I've never understood the appeal of this franchise. I've seen quite a few, including Skyfall, and all I
can say is meh. Meh, meh, meh and meh.
21: Sequelitis. But it's Pixar, so yeah, I'll watch it.
22: You've gotta be shiatting me. NEXT!
23: Spandex dreck.
 
2013-07-28 09:29:32 AM  
Wow, that Terminator reboot sounds beyond shiatty. The last two (non-Cameron) movies have made it pretty obvious that he was the biggest reason that 1 and 2 were as good as they were.
 
2013-07-28 09:31:26 AM  

calbert: deslidefied


Thakks - I guess.  Not one of those movies interests me at all.

Who the hell watches this crap?  Oh, that's right - teenagers.
 
2013-07-28 09:35:20 AM  
the only two on that list i am even remotely interested in seeing are the next bond movie and the next mission impossible.  (say what you want about tom cruise, but every mission impossible movie has been wildly entertaining and i loved ghost protocol.)  i'll wait for a trailer before i decide on world of warcraft and star wars, those might be good.  but the rest i just don't care about.
 
2013-07-28 09:37:37 AM  
There are only 2 original properties in this.  One is from Pixar, and the other is directed by Richard Burton and based on a spooky kids' book.

And this is how to 'save' Hollywood?

Did anyone else notice a lot of those films are remake / reboot sorts?  The Tim Burton adaptation could be interesting at least and I would bang Anna Kendrick and then slightly miss her when she leaves.
 
2013-07-28 09:45:25 AM  
More coloring book movies and sequels.   Stuff for the brainless masses.  Got it.
 
2013-07-28 09:51:34 AM  
Everyone knows 1984 was THE greatest year for movies

(and 1983 was the greatest year for music)

Point of order: Rise of the Planet of the Apes had no direct connection to Burton's Planet of the Apes, except for being inspired by the original book/movies.

serial_crusher: They're making a Warcraft movie? And it's expected to "save Hollywood"? Uggghhhh


I suppose it's too much to ask that that movie might be about conflicting settlements of Orcs and Humans and the well-timed strategic combat planning they employ to deal with each other, rather than just two hours of one guy running around in the snow fighting bears, isn't it?

I was really found of 1985 personally.
 
2013-07-28 10:08:58 AM  
Sequel, sequel, sequel, reboot, sequel....

A couple of those I might see, but holy shiat that's a lot of sequels and reboots. Almost entirely for fark's sake.

And some of those are really tired properties who don't need another sequel or reboot.... they need to be farking retired already because there's nothing left of the dead horse by now... MI? Terminator? Pirates of the Carribean? Seriously Hollywood... fark off with that shiat.
 
2013-07-28 10:17:29 AM  
I made it to Fantastic Four and couldn't finish.  Those films were terrible.

The movie 'industry' isn't going anywhere subby.

Thanks.  The damn slideshow was stuck on the first plate!
 
2013-07-28 10:32:42 AM  
Avengers: Age of Ultron, Ant-Man and Pixar's Inside Out.  Probably Superman/Batman as well; just to see if they either fark it up completely or that they get Superman right.
 
2013-07-28 10:33:19 AM  

justanothersumguy: MI 5?, Pirates of Caribbean 5?  Fark No.


Also: "Avatar 2"  Fark James Cameron.
 
2013-07-28 10:33:41 AM  
There was a time when people didn't go to the theater to see sequels.

Instead, in the early days, they went to the theater to see "serials," where new episodes were screened showing the continuing adventures of liked characters.

Times sure have changed.

Then it still counts. The point being made is that the story is not original. Either being a sequel or an adaption qualifies as being a derivative product.

BTW - chart not mine.
 
2013-07-28 10:33:58 AM  
Ooh, a new James Bond movie!

Okay, so maybe not the most original franchise in existence, but I like fast cars and shiat blowing up.  James Bond seems to do both very well, and I like Daniel Craig.  And Ben Whishaw.

/the rest of the list looks like drek and vomit

1976 changed everything.

It's the governmental concept of saving. Might as well learn Hindi because Bollywood will be all that's left after this.

Actually, 'For Your Eyes Only,' cold be counted as either an adaptation or a sequel.
 
2013-07-28 10:57:28 AM  
I like how everybody here is far too highbrow for any of this sequel nonsense, but somebody is seeing this stuff for it to continue to exist. Am I to believe that Fark is a statistical anomaly in that 100% of its members have not seen most of the highest grossing films of late? Or are you all just faux-hipsters who are above it all now, but will be drooling in the comments section when somebody inevitably links each and every one of these trailers as they are released?

/maybe you're all just upset about the article's omission of Jurassic Park IV?
 
2013-07-28 11:00:13 AM  

Scythed: And 22 of them are sequels, reboots, or adaptions of pre-existing IPs from other mediums.


This is a list looking ahead two years. The original movies that will come out in 2015 are not going to be on it because no one has heard about them yet or has any reason to look forward to them.

/Not saying Hollywood isn't making too many sequels and reboots, just that any list looking forward two years it clearly going to overwhelmingly feature films that are sequels and reboots.
 
2013-07-28 11:01:53 AM  
While lot of snobs up in this thread.
 
2013-07-28 11:02:14 AM  
And Avatar 2 is going to underperform. Not bomb hugely, but nowhere close to the box office of the first.
 
2013-07-28 11:17:26 AM  
About 15 of those interest me. Not bad.
