Movies Coming Soon: it’s all sequels and franchises!
Using this magical tool called the internet, I’ve compiled a list of movies that are coming out over the next two or so years that are either sequels, franchises or both… and I say without any hesitation: this list will amaze you.
Keep in mind that ‘amaze’ is a relative term – it could be good or bad…
Legends of Oz: Dorothy’s Return
So this must be based on the third Oz book, Ozma of Oz? I guess.
Can’t really complain about this – there are like 30 Godzilla movies.
This might be OK… I dunno. It’s telling a story I don’t really care to know, but maybe it’ll be done well – that’s my hope.
How to Train Your Dragon 2
I still think this title sounds like a euphemism.
22 Jump Street
Like the previous flick, I still haven’t gotten around to seeing this one…
Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes
I still haven’t seen the first one, but I just haven’t gotten around to it yet…
Planes: Fire And Rescue
If it makes money, make a sequel – PERIOD!
Guardians of the Galaxy
Great trailer – this one looks good!
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles
Awful trailer! This looks terrible!
Sin City: A Dame to Kill For
I really liked the first one, so my expectations are high here.
The Maze Runner
I know this is based on a book – unless it flops, there will be ninety of these…
Dolphin Tale 2
I can’t even imagine what this movie is about.
Paranormal Activity V
Lord help me.
Horrible Bosses 2
I had no idea anybody saw the first one. Baffling.
The Hobbit: There and Back Again (Renamed Battle of Five Armies)
Really looking forward to seeing the Battle of Five Armies on screen!
Night At The Museum 3
God needs to strike Ben Stiller down… unless that’ll make him more powerful than I can possibly imagine… OK, nevermind, let’s play it safe.
Hot Tub Time Machine 2
I did see the first one and I have no idea why anyone involved wanted to make this sequel… besides the paycheck, that is.
Exodus: Gods and Kings
Christian Bale stars as Moses in director Ridley Scott’s Biblical epic based on the Book of Exodus.
I had no idea there was a taken 2.
Spongebob Squarepants 2
When did the first one happen?
Friday the 13th
I have no idea if this a sequel, reboot or what, but either way, sigh.
Fast and Furious 7
Apparently, they’re going to digitally animate Paul Walker in this movie… and they’re doing that in The Hunger Games movies for Philip Seymour Hoffman, too. What a strange age we live in…
The Avengers: The Age of Ultron
This should be fun – Ultron is a great character.
The Fantastic Four
Well, the first two were awful, so this is actually worthy of a reboot.
I’m a big fan of this character and I enjoy Paul Rudd, so this could be a good one.
The Smurfs 3
This series ruined these kind of movies.
Hotel Transylvania 2
Adam Sandler wants to suck your wallet!
After The Smurfs, I just assume everything is terrible now.
The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2
Well, if Part 1 is good, maybe part 2 will also be good? Too soon to comment on this one…
Kung Fu Panda 3
Again, I keep missing the sequels… who knew there was a second one.
I really hated the first one, so I’ll be avoiding this like the plague.
