Dracula Untold won't exist in Universal Studios Monsterverse.

Not a big surprise considering how bad it did.

It was always a fool's hope anyway, I may have enjoyed Dracula Untold, but it's not exactly the best vampire movie and its mediocre box office and negative reviews cooled off any interest people had in a shared monsters universe at the time. And it's doubly a shame because I think Luke Evans was the best thing in that movie.



Now this is very interesting, people are really clinging onto The Mummy from 1999 like it's a classic. While I love that film for various reasons; it's cast, action, adventure, humour and score, but it was already a remake of the 1932 Universal classic. And The Mummy Returns was pretty flawed despite the returning cast and fun setpieces, and the less said about the third one the better. As for the trailer itself, not really feeling this one. It looks like Mission: Impossible 6 with Ethan Hunt doing some Egyptology in his spare time. Lord knows Universal Studios want their own Marvel or DC style cinematic universe, so this makes more sense than say a Jurassic Park Cinematic Universe. Also that scream was the most unintentionally hilarious noise I've heard this year. Razz

Why do people keep giving Greg Berlanti film projects?? I mean, seriously, I know he's a good TV producer, but he has not translated over to film as writer or producer!! Look at Green Lantern, Wrath of the Titans or last year's Pan, all of them panned across the board, and none of them faring any better than the DCEU's most recent superhero crop. He must have one hell of an agent to negotiate deals like these, lucky b*stard. Also, if you're a fan of Little Shop of Horrors like I am, be very afraid...

It looks like TNT has canned their reboot of 'Tales From The Cryptkeeper' already.

The new Underworld movie has made just over $55 million overall. It has a $35 million budget so it will be profitable, even if it isn't all that good.

Pretty sure Tales is on hold because of rights issues, not canned just quite yet.

I admit this is a bit of a stretch, but I guess this news does fit here.

Goosebumps 2 will come out on Jan 26, 2018.

Was the original movie even that good enough to merit this in the first place?

Uh...Because the better a movie is then higher the chance of getting a sequel/prequel. Not only that, but the better something is, the more likely it gets rebooted when the sequels to the original one go horribly bad.

The worse a movie is, the less likely it is for those things to happen.

It's only common sense in Hollywood, you know.

The more profitable and popular the movie is, the higher chance it gets of expanding it's universe so to speak? It's how franchises have worked for decades.

We all know there have been trillion movies universally accepted as garbage but that still made **** of money. That's all what matters. Not the quality. Altough obviously acclaim doesn't hurt.

But there have been plenty of movies that haven't. Street Fighter, Godzilla 1998, Wolverine: Origins(which has been semi-retconned out of existence), and The Last Airbender are all wonderful examples of profitable movies that never got a sequel because they were just really that bad and got a lot of stuff wrong. They are not like the Transformers movies where people know what they are getting and at least get some things right.

Godzilla was disappointment to box office expectations and only grossed 9th highest in US in 1998. Emmerich also didn't want to continue with the sequel because there would have been severe budget cuts

Shyamalan might still make Airbender 2. The other two I don't know/care enough to comment on. But anyway there are exceptions to every rule.

With generic horror movies that do 'just fine' in the box office it's easy to keep pulling out sequels even if they were crap. Especially if they were quickly produced to begin with. I think that new cheap january scare trash "Bye Bye Man" or whatever it's called will do just that

Ah...No.

Godzilla 1998 was rejected by the GA, fans, and critics. The reception was so bad, that it was a huge reason why the sequel never happened. That movie is the main reason Emmerich was never trusted with such a big name franchise ever again. The 'budget cuts' is just a lame excuse.

As for Shyamalan, he's still trying to build up his career back to what it was. Even though he will do it, TLA 2, will never happen for the same reasons way the sequel to Godzilla 1998 never did. Besides, do you really think Paramount is happy to have one of the worst movies of all time being put in it? I don't. If anything else the sheer backlash forced them to cancel any plans for a sequel like Super Mario Bros. forced Nintendo to cancel the planned Metroid movie.

No offense. But you really are downplaying the role that fans have on Hollywood/movies as a whole. Do you even know how the business even works in Hollywood?

Not the 'no offense' stuff again. The business comment reminds me of "do you understand life" quotes.

Would it really help if I wrote 10 paragraphs explaining it, just like in the JW subjects... no, neither of us would buy what the other side is attempting to argument and ultimately the 'discussion' would just dry out. So why bother. Better just let it go, both of us

A. Godzilla was a disappointment because it wasnt Godzilla. How do you know there would of been severe budget cuts? I enjoyed Godzilla '98 for what it's worth but they wouldnt of DECREASED the budget if the first movie would of been a success. That's just stupid.

B. Most generic horror movies dont even make it to theaters, they go straight to DVD so that's why it's so easy to put out sequel after sequel. Also have you seen The Bye Bye Man yet? No?

But how do you know that was just a smokescreen and that Sony didn't want to tell them the real reason? Even Dean Devlin himself admitted that he botched it on the 1998 movie.

If they had produced more sequels and made loads of money I doubt he had said that, even if the films itself were trash, as at least the american conquest would not have died where it started

Now, of course they could've invented the budget thing as excuse, just like for example when Trevorrow and co said they couldn't write Grant & Malcolm into the new JP films because it's supposedly impossible to integrate them in and shiz. But I guess we never know. Godzilla 98 was horribly received film but and it didn't help, yes, but it wasn't the cash cow they thought it was gonna be either and that likely factored first and foremost

Ali Larter says that fan support brought her back to the Resident Evil movie series.

I always thought, and still believe, that she is more talented then what people give her credit for, but being a bit too much of a 'screen queen' may have hurt her career.

She's far from a "scream queen" because the only horror movies she's most notable for is the first 2 Final Destination movies and Resident Evil. Other than that, I cant really remember what all she's been in that mattered.

That's odd because a lot of sites I've seen consider her one. In any case, I still think she's more talented then what she's been in.

Looking at her filmography, she's been in 6 horror movies that really stand out: House on Haunted Hill, Final Destination 1 and 2, and 3 of the 6 Resident Evil movies. Not enough to really make her a "scream queen" TBH.

Also I need these in my life like ASAP

Last time I checked, it's got a 44% rating on Rotten Tomatoes. That's actually high compared most video game movies.

Super Mario Bros. 16%
Street Fighter '95 15%
Mortal Kombat Annihilation: 3%

Here's an article about why George Romero didn't make a 'Resident Evil' movie, which would have been more faithful to the games.

And the Saw movie series gets is getting run further into the ground...



I can't believe that people actually that this movie series lasted this long considering how both the Nightmare on Elm Street and the Friday The 13th movie franchises both got overextended.

Rhedo, I appreciate the video game movie statistics, but my comment was towards the link Dead2009 posted, about custom Sadako vs. Kayako figures. For being a Japanese horror film, something Japan is usually pretty good at, where two major villains fight, I've heard its pretty terrible, like two separate, not very good films put together, and then they fight for a couple minutes at the very end.

No need to apologize. Very Happy

On that note, I do want to see the new Resident Evil. They're terrible adaptions, subpar action films, and barely horror films, but I've seen them since the beginning, so I doubt I'm going to miss out on this one. I mean the first one I actually enjoy, the second one is a guilty pleasure because it has so many game references, and they sort of go down hill from there, but I can't say despite how much they sucked I've ever been disappointed once I realized these were never going to be like the games.

I'm like the same way with the Transformers movies myself. I've seen the last 4 so I might as well see this new one. I believe that if Romero was the director, or at least and some influence, then they would have been better movies.

If it's any consolation, while the RE movies aren't the best movies, at least they are actually video game movies with strong central woman charterers. That's more then what all the other video game movies can claim.

As if we didn't have enough Friday The 13th movies as it is. Granted the reboot was different yet faithful, but with this new Saw film and Nightmare on Elm Street getting rebooted...again...the last thing we need is this.

I remember hearing about it getting rebooted again not long after the last one didn't do as good as it hoped.

Well, I saw Resident Evil: the Final Chapter. I've stuck with these movies since the beginning, from the first, barely related Resident Evil movie, to this final, again barely related RE movie. It's sad the movies with the most game elements sucked the worst, but none got them very close anyway.

So what did I think? well, to be honest, I kind of hated it. Despite some halfway decent critic reviews, I just found I couldn't get into it. I expected them to go all out, and they ended up doing very little new. Continuity, something these films already weren't great at, was an absolute mess here. Characters from even the last movie were just gone, assumed dead, but not even mentioned. Hell, Claire Redifled is a major character again in this movie, and we never get any mention of Chris at all.  So moving forward, time for spoilers. Fair warning, this is going to be extremely long.

Spoiler:
 

If you want some more info about the plot or anything, I'll be happy to talk about it, but I've ranted enough for now. I'll probably come back and elaborate on Wesker, because I want it to be known for all they built that character up, what happens to him has to be the absolute stupidest, biggest waste of a character I've ever seen. And that's coming from me, who hated the game turned him into another generic T-virus mutant and made you punch boulders while fighting him.

4/10
