WHAT?


Public interest be damned. Nothing's gonna stop 20th Century Fox from greenlighting sequels.

Why try harder when you can try again, right?

2005:
Elektra
Transporter 2
Star Wars: Episode III
Cheaper by the Dozen 2

2006:
Big Momma's House 2
Ice Age 2
X-Men 3
Garfield 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.

Oooooh…

The other "thing"? Israel.

Leave it to MGM, however, to issue 2007's most unnecessary sequel:

Bean 2.

Nostalgia sells, yes, but who's nostalgic for Mr. Bean?

Crocodile Dundee in Los Angeles comes to mind.
