Serenity (2005)


I know that a sequel for this film is near impossible but it's nice to dream. If this would've been a box office success, I should still be watching brand new episodes of Firefly right now or would have a sequel that would either continue or conclude the Firefly storyline. Even without the television show, Serenity's content such as its story, characters and mythology were good enough for a sequel and it is evident right at the end that there might be a one.

The Iron Giant's happy, cliff hanger ending is so good that it just begs for a sequel. There are so many possibilities in this film that could guarantee a sequel. You could set up where the giant and the boy could get into a new adventure or maybe going into the back story of the giant itself or set it a couple of years later and see how it set itself up to something new.

A Scanner Darkly has a lot of great ideas hanging with it. Along with it's bitter-sweet open ending, I would like to see what happens to Arctor and whether or not he recovers from rehab and see if the drug distributor disguised as a rehabilitation clinic would be dealt with. I'd like to see and explore more of this dystopian world and focus more on how the drug epidemic affects society, not just on individual characters.

This is one of the few films where you follow the villain instead of the hero because he is just so interesting. Going into spoilers, Anton actually gets away in the end but I just want to follow him and see what other murdering escapades he's going to do. Maybe put in new characters to come cross his path and create many scenarios that involves him trying to get to his goal with a ruthless apathy. Fun fact: shotgun silencers actually don't work because the sound doesn't come from the muzzle .

One of the things I love about Lost in Translation was its themes of loneliness and depression but executed in a quirky way and I believe that this can be used over and over again. It would be a very interesting if they use the same themes but tell a different story with different characters and a brand new location or maybe set it in the same time but with different characters with different backgrounds.

If you're going to end with an open ending where there are new villains and possibilities of a brand new story, why are you still delaying Mr. Bird?!? Nah, I'm kidding, take your time but seriously, The Incredibles' universe is so good and so open that you could make one or two sequels for it. You could expand on how the super hero business affects the Parr family, maybe set it a couple of years later and we see how the kids developed after they learned that they're heroes, I mean there is a lot of potential story lines here.

I could see this as a new Lethal Weapon like franchise where Robert Downey Jr. and Val Kilmer go around getting in trouble, solving many different and mysterious cases while having many hilarious banters. Honestly, I just want Downey Jr. and Kilmer to work together again, I mean their on screen chemistry was just so amazing and a Kiss Kiss Bang Bang 2 would definitely make my day.

I know that there will be a remake of The Evil Dead and to be honest, I don't really care for it. Yeah, it looks very practical and sometimes scary but the only thing I want to know is what happened to Ash at the end of Army of Darkness? Yeah I know that there are comic book sequels but it just doesn't feel right since you don't get to see Bruce Campbell playing him again and still, you can't just leave such an awesome and iconic character on a cliffhanger, it's just plain annoying. For many years I have been waiting for the 4th film in the franchise but it looks like that may not be possible.

It would be cool if a sequel to the biggest property crossover of cartoons ever in film. It could be a brand new story in the same era or It could take on a newer generation of cartoons, preferably from the 70's to the 90's. Maybe do a story where it deals with the relevance of of the older cartoons in modern times or a maybe a brand new case to solve. And I wouldn't mind seeing Jessica Rabbit again.

Zombieland (2009)


One of the biggest problems I have with zombie films is that the characters are generally uninteresting and unlikeable, with few exceptions like Shaun of the Dead or Zombieland. Shaun of the Dead doesn't need a sequel because it is a contained story and well, most of the characters are dead. Zombieland I hope should have a sequel. Not because all the main characters are alive, but their chemistry with each other is so good that you'd just want to see what happens to them and it would be interesting where their travels lead them through a zombie infested USA.

In no particular order. These are the films I think that truly deserve a sequel. Whether its because of it's open ended feeling, the story is really well thought out or because its universe and ideas are so good , it would be very interesting to see a continuation of these films. Films that already have planned sequels do not count e.g. How to Train Your Dragon. May contain spoilers so be careful of what you read.

You know, I don't agree with you on any of these (well actually Serenity should get a follow-up as a TV-show or something) but I'll totally give a vote to any list with original content and some reasoning for the choices. Great work!

I totally agree that Serenity needs a sequel or another TV show because I loved Firefly.

A sequel to Who Framed Roger Rabbit will never happen now that Bob Hoskins has retired after diagnosed with Parkinson's Disease.
It's confirmed that Army of Darkness (or Evil Dead 3) is greenlit for a sequel b Bruce Campbell himself.

Iron Giant won't get a continuation after it flopped at the box office (same goes for Serenity and Kiss Kiss Bang Bang) and the film animation studio for WB closed down because of this.

No Country for Old Men doesn't need to be sequel-fied, since the Coens don't like the idea of making sequels to their films. Besides the book itself didn't need one (same goes for A Scanner Darkly).

The have been talks of a Zombieland 2, so far the cast are hesistant to whether they will do it. Although a TV Series has been confirmed and not doing well in picking up by a TV studio.

Brad Bird has stated the The Incredibles 2 may happen, he said it will only happen if has written a good script which may take a long time.

Lost in Translation is one of those movies that doesn't need a continuation. Doing so will deminish the predecessor, it will definitely show its more for money and sacrifising storytelling freedom.

Don't think I agree concerning Serenity. Book and Wash dead, River's secret out... nowhere to go here?
