Movie News and Trailers 2 - The Sequel


#2465

Sequels happen if the first film does well.

Either this film works or it doesn’t. Planning to hold anything good back just because of potential sequels would be a mistake.

So I hope that they chose the best bits that fit together into a coherent and/or an entertaining film.

Because if they didn’t, they’re screwed.

Of course, and doing the Alita/Hugo story properly would be a good, self-contained story with a sequel hook if the movie does well enough.

As it is, Wiki suggests they’re going to do the Alita/Hugo story, but have her be a motorball champion rather than a bounty hunter.


#2467

Considering how many years he’s been promising this movie for, asking anybody to wait for a sequel is crazy.


#2468

I still suspect that this is an elaborate ruse and there isn’t an Alita movie coming out.


#2469

After watching The Man Who Killed Don Quixote, I’ll believe any film can be released.


#2470

Except Inhumans.


#2471

That’s the happy exception. :sweat_smile:


#2472

But we ended up getting the TV miniseries with the first two parts getting a cinematic release.

Some things don’t die. They actually get worse.


#2473

The scene where Andy gives his toys to that little girl gets to me, too.


#2474

Interesting to see how they pull this off


#2475

It does remind me of the Wachowski produced SPEED RACER quite a bit which tried to squeeze in a lot AND add some elements as well.

It’s a tough sell. Sorta like the dark comedy of HAPPY mixed with the TV version of POWERS.


#2476

Speed Racer is still the best live-action anime adaptation, so it seems a valid approach.


#2477

Shocking nobody, the new Robin Hood is getting bad reviews:

#2478

The trailers remind me so much of The Mask of Zorro.

But, like, a very boring Mask of Zorro.


#2479

The Legend of Zorro then.


#2480

It sucks that it’s boring. I was hoping for a “better when drunk” level of entertainment, but it probably misses that mark.


#2481

Never seen it.
But that scene where Robin is at the gala mocking the Sherrif to his face has maybe 80% of the same core words as the same scene where Zorro goes to the gala to mock the Don to his face.
Except less funny.

#2483

Best western adaptation. I would put the Rurouni Kenshin trilogy as the best ever.


#2484

An interesting choice!
