Sam Rockwell, who memorably played a defacto red-shirt called "Guy" in the film, would be game. "fark yeah, a sequel would be amazing," he said before adding, "If it was a respectful script to Galaxy Quest."

Like that guy.

This is a sequel I'd go see.  TAKE MY MONEY

my favorite part is the close-up of sigourney weaver clearly saying, "F*CK THAT" that was overdubbed with the PG-13 "SCREW THAT."

This is something so does NOT need to happen.

GALAXY QUEST is a perfectly self-contained piece of art.

/that movie only cost $45 mill?

I would see this. I can only hope that it is something that would do with a new crew, space station or prequel. Or hell, all three.

But if the make it like a big screen Big Bang Theory, with sci fi nerd references all over the place, it will tank and tank hard.

I was fond of the out-take on the DVD where she distracted the bug guys and had the computer close the door on them.

I actually might enjoy a Galaxy Quest sequel. In the pile of shiat they are rebooting, remaking, sequlizing and pre-quelizing nowadays, this is one that could actually work. It has to be written right. They can't just have it be a shiatty remake of the original that just has new targets inserted for the joke punchlines, but it really could be done well if the right people are involved.

I'm not guaranteeing this, mind you...

JustHereForThePics: Only if Monk comes back as stoner Scotty.


I think the whole cast needs to be there for it to work, including Justin Long. Anyone who won't come back should have their character written out with a decent reason that they aren't there. Replacing actors would just suck.

I am pretty dubious - the primary humor (and plot) in the original movie is the crew is with the fantasy becoming reality and coming to terms with it. With that resolved what is left for a sequel to do?

They realise that theirs is not the only show that has been defictionnalised by aliens, and they must contend with the equivalent of Star Wars and Battlestar Galactica.

The movie is awesome. Let's just leave it as it is.
 
2014-08-04 10:24:51 AM  
It would be a hit or miss I would think.  If it IS the same casting, they might be able to pull it off.  All in all, I would like to see a squeal come to the screen.  On a side note, I went to college with Missi Pyle (North Carolina School of the Arts) except I attended the music department there...  Missi Pyle is hawt!!!

Nerds aren't insulted by Big Bang Theory.  I know--I and many of my friends count among their ranks.  And we would not only kill to see a Galaxy Quest sequel, we'd show up in costume.

The crew is getting old and must give the reigns to another cast. A next generation as it were. And there we see the new crew are a bunch of prima donnas as well. A faction comes back for the crew and takes both of them, because now the head alien from the last one got corrupted and turned evil and is building a Death Planet.

I'm a bit puzzled by it's success.  I realize not everybody shares my opinion, but I tried watching that show and thought the attempts at nerd humor were incredibly bad.  By the same token, if there is indeed a market for nerd comedy, then I can't for the life of me understand why Code Monkeys failed as hard as it did.

they could use time travel to erase that timeline and distract everyone from what a cop out that is by using lens flares.

Nerds are pretty well split on BBT. I personally can't stand it.

I would definitely see a GQ sequel though.

People like to laugh at nerds. Which is fine but that show just comes off as non-nerds trying to approximate what nerds talk like and it just comes off as annoying.

An actually funny take on nerds, Free Enterprise. It even has Shatner.

My first reaction was similar, i.e. that there is nowhere left for them to go.

Then I read the comments on TFA and there are some workable ideas, mostly around the premise that the GQ franchise has been rebooted, JJ Abrams style, resulting in the wrong cast getting abducted by returning aliens. There is potential for lots of interesting character arcs, e.g. the director of the reboot learns to respect the core of the old show, which he had discarded in favor of space battles and lens flare.

Of course "workable ideas" is a long way from "good movie". Among the many things that made GQ work the first time were the writing, and also the chemistry among the cast -- the perfect timing and reactions are what make a lot of the gags work.

I'm a bit puzzled by its success among nerds.  The impression I get is that it's a show of nerds, for nerds but NOT by nerds.  Rather, it's a careful attempt to create nerd humor by a bunch of MBAs.  So it's packed with nerdy references one can research with five seconds of Google, but I have no idea who the fark the characters are.  They're not like me or anyone I know.  They feel a lot more like how I believe others perceived me when I was a pencil-necked high school geek, which I guess is why the show is a hit, but I also understand why some nerds feel insulted.  Personally I wasn't insulted at all, but I did get bored very quickly.

It's like if I made a comedy show about the inner workings of an FBS football team.  I'd do my homework so I'd get a lot of the details right, but since I've never actually played competitive football it's inevitable that it's going to feel a bit off to someone who actually lived through it.

"I loved Galaxy Quest. I thought it was brilliant satire, not only of Trek, but of fandom in general. The only thing I wish they had done was cast me in it, and have me play a freaky fanboy who keeps screaming at the actor who played 'the kid' about how awful it was that there was a kid on the spaceship. Alas." - Wil Wheaton

On BBT, A hot woman moves in across the hall from a major nerd hangout, and within three years, two have had sex with her, one has fondled her breasts, another is implied to have fondled her since she made out with Stewart, and she got a smoking hottie to marry a fourth.

The show is clearly a nerd fantasy dream.  I predict it will end like St Elsewhere.

One of my issues with it is that they are into everything. Dr Who, Star Wars, Star Trek, D&D, video games, board games, comics, Magic the Gathering, Lord of the Rings, Ren Faires, etc.

I'm surprised they haven't made one a Brony yet.

Instead of enemies why not make it the greatest crossover/ mash up ever? Have multiple alien races each building and recruiting a ship based on classic sci fi. BSG, ST TNG, Firefly etc. Have the actors get forced to fight as an armada of the greatest sci fi ships against a common baddie.
