This Is The Worse News I've Had All Year

Some movies just shouldn't get a sequel! What the hell. Why can't there just be a good movie that stand's alone, on it's own. Why do we need a fucking franchise visciously hoovering all the money out of our pockets. I mean it's complete and total SHITE. It's not like movies today don't have better directions to go in. Why are they making a sequel to a movie that didn't even make twenty million dollars at the box office? Maybe because it only cost 3.5 mil to make and any movie that makes more then 4 times budget gets a banker hot for more. So it will probably get a budget of 40 mil and make 35 mil opening weekend and then 80 overall.

An funny little note, the two posts this week have been about movies starring the same actor.

OK fixed a typo in the link.

Try it again Paul if you have not already. I just tried it and it brought me to the article.

The link worked for me.

I'd say the other movie was 28 Weeks Later, but that doesn't have the same actor. But, up until now, i was assuming it had the same director.

Is Danny Boyle not the director of the sequel to his film 28 Days Later..? In the new article, they mention a new science fiction thriller, Sunshine. I would think if he was at the helm of 28 Weeks, it would have mentioned it.

So a sequel by a different director -- are you still as excited about this, Dean? Your reactions to news aboutsequels to Danny Boyle movies are pretty conflicted.

We can all argue about this tonight at the brewpub. (I'd invite everybody reading to come by, but it's not my blog.)

(it's a conspiracy - he fixed the link before any of you got here! it's a plot to make me seem insane!)

I'd be more up in arms about a Trainspotting sequel if it was just a bunch of screenwriters running off with the characters. At least they're basing it on the sequel novel. Though, the first review of the novel on Amazon basically said it was fine but unnecessary - one assumes a movie sequel will create the same reaction.
