Saw the trailer recently at a movie and I came to this thread out of curiosity to find that no one's posted stuff here. So here it is:

Is this the most unnecessary sequel ever made?

Should of been DTV as I said before.

Now one can argue about tons of comedies and horrors right here...

But my vote is for Free Willy.

They're marketing it as the "anticipated sequel to the one that started it all" or something like that.

Yeah but at least with Free Willy, the first one made a lot of cash, and they didn’t wait more than 10 years to make it. The Best Man was a film that broke even at the box office, but only because of its low budget. It didn’t set the box office on fire.

 

Making a sequel, especially 14 years after the original, makes no sense.

Well to be fair check out the cast-most of those people were nobodies at the time of the first.

That still doesn’t excuse the fact that the anticipation for this film is very low right now.

I don't understand Kick Ass or Percy Jackson getting sequels either and this probably costs a lot less...

 

No, really, I guess there are numbers/research showing this earned a decent enough following on cable/DVD and now that the characters have aged some, the movie will appeal to an older audience that's more likely to go to the movies rather than teens/twentysomethings who will just DL.

That is true-also older audiences don't tend to go as much due to money and time (most of them wait till the dollar theaters anyway)

You know-it is nice that midnight showings exist now-since they cause sold out showings to be rare (only TLR was sold out when I tried to see it in the past year...) as well as less annoying people anymore :P

Methinks this movie wasn't made for mostly white male internet users, so I expect it to be trashed and underpredicted by most on the internet, but it should be a decent enough hit.

As far as African American movies go, the first one wasn’t even that big of a hit.

 

Not saying it will flop; it’s just that regardless of its audience, I can’t see this film doing very well at the box office.

Oh, it won't be a huge hit or anything, but the first is well regarded and reconizable among my friends so its a pretty low risk proposition.
