The Incredibles 2. Pixar is making a sequel to frigging Cars, but not The Incredibles?! eek

Oh yes, that movie screams for a sequel. However, Pixar doesn't want to do it without Brad Bird's involvement, and he's currently shooting Mission: Impossible IV. If and when he returns to direct an animated feature, hopefully he'll tackle an Incredibles sequel.

3. ANOES 3: Dream Warriors- This may seem like an odd addition seeing as there was A Nightmare On Elm Street 4. However, the concept of the "Dream Warriors" never continued. This always surprised me a bit as it seems like the natural progression of the story. Instead, they were all killed off at the beginning of part 4 and no new ones ever arose. Just a pet peeve of mine.


I think when they are going to do the next Earle Haley installment, they will probably go the "dream warriors" route as they obviously can't do an Elm Street movie without copying the existing Englund movies. The remake re-used lots of 'killing' ideas not only from the original, but also from its sequels. However, the dream warriors concept allowed the dream sequences to be imaginative from the dreamer's point of view rather than always having Freddy come up with the nightmare. It's more interesting to see the dreamer have powers as well which poses a challenge for Freddy rather than just have them run around like veal in the dreamworld. Which is basically parts 4,5,6 and this wore out.

Regarding other sequels

GHOSTBUSTERS 3

ASH vs FREDDY vs JASON

See, this is what I have been saying for years. When you follow Freddy, it's just lather, rinse, repeat. If you follow the Dream Warriors, the story can be anything you want it to be simply with Freddy as the reoccuring antagonist. In the wonderful documentary "Never Sleep Again" they discuss the script written by Peter Jackson which would have been part 5 if made. The Jackson concept seemed like a natural extension of the Dream Warriors story and I believe would have made a fantastic film.

At least it would have been something different.

I agree with most of what was written here, especially Buckaroo Banzai, a third Tim Burton Batman film, and another Master and Commander. For now, I'm ambivalent about a third Ghostbusters.

I have a few I'd like to see:
-more Horatio Hornblower TV miniseries with Ioan Gruffudd and Robert Lindsay (with Mr. Matthews, Mr. Styles, and Lt. Bush along for the ride!)
-another Tango and Cash (Stallone would probably do it, too)
-the first film was meh but I'd like to see another Steve Carrell Get Smart film, but replace Anne Hathaway with Catherine Bell and hire Sledge Hammer! creator Alan Spencer to write it
-I'm gonna regret this but I'd like to see a true sequel to the Blues Brothers, as envisioned by Dan Aykroyd and without the studio bureaucracy mucking things up (Landis has said that they were forced to keep it PG-13, shoot in Toronto, include a kid, etc.)

Unbreakable

This could be really great!


I thought they said this was being worked on?

The last interview I saw with M. Night he said that he had taken part of the plot to Unbreakable 2 and was turning it into a different film. But, that he still wanted to make the sequel if he could.

Maybe the long wait for a sequel will pay off like it did for Toy Story 3. Imagine it being set a decade after the first film, with Violet and Dash in their twenties and Jack-Jack being roughly Dash's age in the first. I mean, the young actor who voiced Dash in the first film is going to sound a lot different now, so making the characters the same age won't really work unless he's recast.

Bond!!!!!

a worthy sequel to Casino Royale dammit!


And speaking of Bond, they should have given Timothy Dalton a third 007 adventure circa 1991 or '92. Had he done a third, he might be better-regarded in the role today.

More JURASSIC PARK, dammit! I absolutely love those movies, and it's way too long since the third film.

And ALIEN, obviously, but we are thankfully getting that in a little while.

BROADWAY MELODY OF 1940 and GOLD DIGGERS OF 1937.
I'm still waiting for the final chapters in these two series.

YES, with both Jeff Goldblum and Sam Neill. And without any acrobatic kiddies. Rated R, or at least a very hard PG.

ALIEN... my fingers are crossed. Btw, having seen and thoroughly enjoyed Centurion, I would certainly say Michael Fassbender would be a good cast addition.

Also, adult Star Wars films...

Deep Rising.

I for sure am curious about what the heck was in the bushes on the island at the end of Deep Rising.

A hearse a day keeps the doctor away. When you really think about that remark it is sad but true.

I'd like to see a sequel to The Abyss. I always felt they left us hanging when the alien ship surfaced.

"Cars" sells far more toys. (Thus the reason for "Planes") Same reason we got three Toy Stories. Their basically 90 minute "Toy" commercials. Incredibles just isn't a big toy seller I surmise. I bet even Monsters Inc, (Monsters) is more attractive to kids than super hero figures.
