It was in the year 2000 that we met the unseen force of Death itself, in our very first introduction to the franchise known as Final Destination. The unique and original premise of a group of characters cheating death and then being hunted down one by one was originally pitched as an episode of The X-Files – an idea that was inspired by the infamous 1996 crash of Twa Flight 800. In short, the show’s creator apparently wasn’t interested in the idea, though it caught the attention of two members of the writing staff. They fell in love with the concept and decided to work together to go bigger and turn it into a feature film. With that decision, a hit franchise was born. It’s now been 13 years since the release of the original Final Destination, and to date we've seen five installments of the series – with the last one spewing »

It’s been a few years since we’ve had a new Final Destination film, which leads us to wonder if Death himself figured he’d earned an extended vacation after five films filled with Rube Goldberg-esque murder sequences. If he did take a break, it appears as though his siesta could be about to end. Franchise producer Craig Perry is interested in making another installment in the brutally amusing series, but rather than just go back to the same old well of ideas, he’s prepared to take Final Destination in an entirely new direction – back in time.

Structured like movie trailers, and cut together from existing footage found in movies and in news archives, the videos provided an idea of the setting and tone of the finished project - a kind of moving mood board, if you like.
Final Destination producer Craig Perry has gone for the same strategy, and with the help of editor Alexander McNeill, fashioned a proof-of-concept trailer for Final Destination 6: The Dark Age. As you can see from the footage below, The Dark Age »
We avoid the fan-made stuff here. All too often fan-made materials are mistaken as something "legit" and I'd rather not take the time writing more stories about how it's "not legit." Today, however, I'll bend for this concept trailer for Final Destination 6.
Yeah, I'm kind of surprised New Line hasn't announced that sequel already (we're overdue). Producer Craig Perry, however, spoke to a fan about the notion of one and it inspired said fan (with good editing skills) to cut a concept trailer together. Not sure where the dialogue between Perry and fan Alexander McNeill took place, but here's what the latter had to say to set up the trailer.
Here's something fun. Final Destination producer Craig Perry and I discussed a possible direction the franchise could take. It inspired this edit of a concept trailer for a sixth Final Destination movie. The trailer is a mix of over 20 different films and TV shows. »
