Public interest be damned. Nothing's gonna stop 20th Century Fox from greenlighting sequels.
Why try harder when you can try again, right?
Star Wars: Episode III
Cheaper by the Dozen 2
Big Momma's House 2
Ice Age 2
This past week, Fox announced its recycled offerings for 2007:
The Hills Have Eyes II (Mar 2)
28 Weeks Later (May 11)
Fantastic Four and the Silver Surfer (Jun 15)
Alien vs. Predator 2 (Aug 10)
Don't ask and you shall receive! I can't wait to buy the unrated DVD versions with no appreciable difference.
Synopsis for the sequel to 28 Days Later:
A handful of survivors begin their attempts to salvage a future, little realizing that the deadly virus is not the only thing that threatens them.
The other "thing"? Israel.
Leave it to MGM, however, to issue 2007's most unnecessary sequel:
Nostalgia sells, yes, but who's nostalgic for Mr. Bean?
Crocodile Dundee in Los Angeles comes to mind.
