Least promising Sequel/Remake/Franchise Flick of 2019

Message Bookmarked

On the eve of the release of M. Night Shyamalan's combined sequel to Unbreakable and Split, which of this year's cinematic embodiments of late capitalism do you most hope to avoid?

As usual, I'm sourcing these titles from Wikipedia so things are subject to change and all that. I'll add an "other" option this time in case there's something I missed.

Joker, certainly.

I don't really have a standout for what looks the worst here. The whole Disney live action remake campaign annoys me to no end; it strikes me as endlessly cynical and pointless even by the standards of the kinds of things found in these polls. I haven't seen/heard anything about The Joker yet, but the whole fetishization of that character from The Dark Knight onward feels uncomfortably incel-ish to me, so I may vote that.

As for the most hilariously "why did they even bother?" of these, I can't decide whether The Addams Family, The Angry Birds Movie 2, A Dog's Journey, Grudge, Men in Black: International, Son of Shaft or What Men Want is the most ludicrously pointless (Terminator 6 as well, but at least they can count on it making a killing overseas).

hyped

John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum
- fuck yeah

Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw
- a F&F by the same writers room (?) with Chris Morgan's name on it, from one of the directors of John Wick, starring Statham but not wasting any time on Vin Diesel walking around finding his light and saying "fambly" 992x? fuck yeah

moderately hyped

The Lego Movie 2: The Second Part
- this is not Lord & Miller on script I think, I know Rob Schrab got fired or walked as director, no idea who's involved at all, Lego Batman was dope and maybe better than Lego Movie 1, but had Chris McKenna writing iirc? anyway I assume there's some moderate quality control

loosies

The Addams Family
- wtf? anyway I just saw Addams Family Values for the first time two months ago and I'm down if Ricci is in it and Sonnenfeld's directing

Child's Play
- assuming this is just the 8th Child's Play by Don Mancini, keep going man. If it's some dumb remake, I hope Mancini gets a bunch of money and wanted to stop

Farmageddon: A Shaun the Sheep Movie
- I'm Nick Park or gtfo personally but Park's not great anymore and the bits of TV Shaun I've seen are good stuff, presume this is great for kids and I'd like it if I saw it

Godzilla: King of the Monsters
- is this a Japanese one or another American reboot?

Happy Death Day 2U
- tonight a friend told me about Happy Death Day and her plans to see this on Valentine's Day and I'm now keen to catch #1

Hellboy
- this seems pretty ill-advised all around but Mignola seems to have pursued it actively so he can do what he likes

Joker
- literally everything about this sounds like a bad idea on its own, imagine how bad it might turn out all multiplied together. I'd watch 20 minutes of it on TV to catch the Maron / DeNiro scene though

Jumanji 3
- haven't seen Jumanj1, totally enjoyed 2manji on moviepass last year

Men in Black: International
- solid positive memories of the Ed Solomon / Barry Sonnenfeld #1, can't remember anything about #2, will never see #3, but obviously can turn into a series with different actors, just off the premise. I miss Sonnenfeld generally though, often when watching Coen Bros comedies

Son of Shaft
- afaik the Sam Jackson one was already Son Of Shaft and that was fuckin' NINETEEN YEARS AGO. I'm down if it's Jackson playing his own son this time though

Toy Story 4
- #3 was ludicrously good for how late it came, but another 9 years on and the likely plots are eeeesh

Zombieland Too
- super-enjoyed the first one, just checked and it's the same writers and Ruben Fleischer directing again, so the benefit of the doubt is open

answer is probably It 2, Joker or one of the mocap remakes of a Disney cartoon I haven't seen

A lot of these seem more low-rent than usual, like sequels to movies I'm barely aware of (eg part three of a Gerard Butler franchise that I didn't even realize had received a part two) and stuff that's being remade for a second or third time. And then like Dark Phoenix and New Mutants which are installments of a DOA franchise which I'm sure Marvel would just as soon sweep under the rug if not for potential $$$.

What Women Want is such a random movie to remake

― jmm, Friday, January 18, 2019 2:36 PM

Seriously, this is one of the least bad ideas on the thread. I want a film about women reading the mind of Mel Gibson.

But even if it wasn't Mel Gibson, still more interesting than most everything else here.

Was already remade with Andy Lau and Gong Li
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xhHqflh2kU4

Oscar Isaac as Gomez sounds great but since it's not live action it seems like a wasted casting choice.

John Wick 3, Pet Semetery and Hellboy are the only things I might see but probably wont see them at cinema.

Big Eyes kind of sucked; beautiful set design for the home though. Script just didn't work great and that story should have been ore compelling. The Burton touch is very light.

I think the last film of his I enjoyed seeing was Sweeny Todd and not sure how I'd feel about that now. If Corpse Bride counts I'd say that's his last really good film.

You bring up a good point. If this is another go at adapting a well known novel, than it shouldn't be here for the same reason that I didn't include Greta Gerwig's Little Women. I guess it comes down to determining whether the filmmaker is treating the source material as the novel or the earlier adaptations. In both cases, the popularity of these novels likely outweighs the popularity of any one film adaptation of either of them. I shouldn't have included it.

Child's Play
- assuming this is just the 8th Child's Play by Don Mancini, keep going man. If it's some dumb remake, I hope Mancini gets a bunch of money and wanted to stop

so it turns out this is some dumb remake, but Don Mancini, the creator of Child's Play and writer of every movie and director of most, did NOT want to stop and is now doing a Chucky TV show that may or may not be in a third continuity

Son of Shaft
- afaik the Sam Jackson one was already Son Of Shaft and that was fuckin' NINETEEN YEARS AGO. I'm down if it's Jackson playing his own son this time though

so it turns out Sam Jackson was the NEPHEW of Shaft in the 2000 Shaft, but he is Shaft again in the 2019 Shaft, but now Richard Roundtree (of the 1971 Shaft and Shaft's Big Score (1972) and Shaft In Africa (1973)) is the grandfather of Jacksonshaft's son John Shaft III?

also, it is called Shaft, not Son Of Shaft, probably due to this confusing and dumb situation. wake me up when they have the guts to finally adapt the second novel though

It is in fact a feature-length adaptation of the 'Addams Groove' video so you're in for a treat, yeah.

one month passes...

pretty ill-advised all around but Mignola seems to have pursued it actively

nope:


What were your conversations with director Neil Marshall like?
Well, I never … I mean, I never really had much of a conversation with Neil. I only met him once or twice, I guess, before filming began.

Why allow a new, rebooted movie to happen?
I have no say in these matters because I don’t hold the film rights.

If one considers what is inherently promised by these sequels and reboots, one finds that the promise is often fulfilled.
