Imagining sequels that will never happen...

It's a favorite pastime of mine to come up with sequel names for movies that will either never be made due to performance, critical response, or just because of their subject matter. A long time ago, Premiere magazine had a feature where they did this (minus the awesome MS Paint work done on the posters, as seen below). My favorite one they came up with was a sequel to the Nic Cage-Bridget Fonda movie where he plays a cop that gives a waitress a two million dollar tip. The first film was titled It Could Happen to You. The sequel? It Could Happen to You All Over Again. Anyway, here's some "possibilities" for some 2007 flicks:



















This critical bomb surely won't have a sequel, but the naming convention could go on forever...



















Or perhaps, We Own the Day, Too. Personally, I'd like to see We Own Dusk.



















A genre switch isn't out of the question with a title like that.



















In the first film, Nic Cage could see two minutes into the future (or something like that). I'm guessing he can see at least 7 minutes into the future in the sequel, thanks to the help of his wise mentor, Mr. Miyagi.



















First, they brought you Daddy Day Care. Then, they brought you Daddy Day Camp. Now, the best of both worlds have been combined!



















Who saw this? Seriously, raise your hand.



















Oh wait - they actually already made this one...

m. night shymalan's movie taglines for "the happening" poster has this bad sequel feel to it, as it references 6th sense and signs.

i love the catch and release and p.s. i love you ones.

Unfortunately, I saw that movie with Kevin Smith and Jennifer Garner. The wampette came up with a bunch of crap, I picked the one I though was the better of the bunch. Needless to say, I slept through most of it.

And the carp will be nominated for an Oscar. I just know it!

Hee hee. Next-er. Awesome.

Bravo sir, you have made expert use of Microsoft's "Paint" feature.

Bravo, I say! ;)

haha, very nice Fletch. it wouldn't surprise me though, if at least one of these were actually made - that's all hollywood can seem to do now anyway.

NFL Adam said...

Well done, Young Fletcherson.

How about Smoking Queens? A group of hit-men now try to kill a Vegas Drag queen who is about to out a Family Values politician.

Awesome. Is this an annual list? It should be..

Fletch said...

Shoot, it'll be much more than annual - there's a lot of material for me to work with. Expect to see it regularly...

Martha Elaine Belden said...

hahahah! this one cracks me up.

unfortunately, i was one of the rare few who saw catch and release. my friend gave all of us free passes to a pre-screening, so i figured "why not?" 'cause it sucked... that's why not.

haha... again... too funny :)

*Raising my hand in shame* I saw Catch & Release too, a rental for the wife. It's surprising Jennifer Garner gets hired for any work when she does this kinda stuff. Same goes for the Swankster; both the wife and I avoided PS, but its hard to believe she even does junk like that.

Love the sequels. 'Nexter' definitely takes #1! Can't wait for the next installment!
