The Year of the Sequel...
In looks as if 2008 will be the year of the sequel; the long awaited Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, the not really wanted The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor, the much anticipated The Dark Knight and the bound to be fabulous Hellboy 2: The Golden Army have all popped up on my radar. Mind you, 2007 seemed to be the year of the threequel; the disappointing Shrek the Third, the awful Pirates of the Caribbean: At World’s End, the not as good as the first two Spider-Man 3 and the truly dire Rush Hour 3.

    That new Indy movie will be a merchanising cash cow. I bet Burger King, Pepsi et al are all on board that particular gravy train.

  2. Ah but then most (all?) sequels are produced purely to milk the cash cow, right?

    Well, with 'Saw IV' out at the end of October, I can't wait for 2008.....March - 'Saw V'.....June - 'Saw VI'......September - 'Saw VII'.......December - 'Saw VIII' (I can hope, can't I?!). I might pass on 'Hostel 3/4/5/6' etc!!

  4. But surely you have to be on the edge of your seat for Police Academy 8? or The Land Before Time 13: The Wisdom of Friends?
