More Fourquels? Or should the be Quadrilogy? Whatever!

If people bought the product the first time, make it again with some minor changes and customers will come back.

Hello, film franchise!

Who care's if it's quality as long as people are buying tickets.

After 2007 summer of trilogies with Spider-Man 3, Shrek 3, Pirates of the Caribbean 3, Oceans 11 3, Jason Bourne 3, and Rush Hour 3. We kind of got used to idea of things ending in 3.

Summer 2008 is far less sequely/trilogy-esque. But 2008 has it's share of returning characters...
The most notable return is Indiana Jones who comes back for a "Part 4" expanding the traditional trilogy. And with a combined gross of 312 million dollars with domestic and foreign grosses combined in the first week, the business man might ask...why didn't they do this sooner?
With mixed reviews, it just doesn't seem to matter...so why not make a 4th? At least if you're in it for the money. Die Hard 4 brought in the dough in 2007, and now with Indiana Jones...what's next.

Well according to Variety, Brett Ratner is in negotiations to direct a Beverly Hills Cop 4, with Eddie Murphy willing to take a fat paycheck to reprise his role as Detroit detective Axel Foley.

Other movie franchises have gone to 4 or further, especially the horror genre (Aliens, Batman, Child's Play, Friday the 13th, Halloween, James Bond, Harry Potter, Lethal Weapon, Nightmare on Elm Street, Police Academy, Rambo, Rocky, Saw, Scary Movie, Star Wars, etc.)

But what's next. What seemingly completed trilogies might be dug up to become quadrilogies?

Robocop 4? Madmax 4? Might Ducks 4?

Or one that would definitely get me to waste my money and get me in a theater...Back to the Future 4?

Michael J. Fox could reprise Marty McFly...and why not throw in Shai LeBouef into this one too...or Abigail Breslin as his child. Isn't that how these things work?

Can Michael J Fox still act? I for one would love to see that, but if he can't reprise his role, I would not want someone else to do it injustice.

Fox said...

I would totally go see a fourth installment of *The Godfather*. I know most people would go ape crazy about that, but...

Adam said...

Was there a Leprechan IV?

I'm all about an Angels in the Outfield quadrilogy!!!

Oh man, the third Back to the Future was so lame, I doubt a fourth would be good, but sadly, I'd probably go see it in theatres as well!

Darrell said...

Dude, I didn't realize that there had even been a third robocop movie.

Mary Ann said...

We saw Indiana Jones last night...a little disappointed in the premise of the plot (does that make sense?) The action was good, there were some surprises, but still not what I thought it would be :(

Mighty Ducks!

RC said...

@fox -- Godfather IV -- that could be great if they brought back the right crew and performers.

@ adam...was there more than 1 Angels in the Outfield? And I think there's been at least 4 Leprechaun films, maybe 5.

@ darrell -- thanks for commenting, i've missed your blog in it's hiatus.

@ mary ann -- "premise of the plot" -- makes sense to me...I've heard that from others.

@ loren -- I think I'd actually be excited for A Mighty Ducks IV -- Joshua Jackson could star, what else is he doing?

trevor,

i'm sure rush limbaugh would pitch-hit if michael j. isn't feeling up to it. that rush sure is a nice guy...

rc,

what are you talking about? star wars only had 3 movies! sure, the last one (Return of the Jedi) had some cheesy, 'for-the-kids' moments, but it's not like george lucas would ever sell us out and continue that downslide by insulting our fanatical boy-ish love with the wonder that is the star wars trilogy! no way, right?!?
