Films that'd get a fairer hearing if they weren't sequels

23 hours ago | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Some sequels are doomed to live in the shadow of the hits that triggered them. Here are a few examples...

Following up a successful movie with a sequel is a tough proposition for any writer or director, and it's often the case that such follow-ups fail to recreate the magic of their predecessors. But sometimes, sequels can offer a different yet entertaining experience of their own, and it's even possible that, if they didn't happen to share the same name as an earlier hit film, they might even have been better received.

This article's dedicated to a few of these kinds of films. They offer lots of excitement, comedy, jolts of terror and a smattering of great performances, and might have fared better with audiences and critics had they not been sequels. At the very least, they attempted to do something a little different than the films they followed. While other examples undeniably remain, »

Sleepy Hollow

Speaking at the TCA's this week, the producers of Fox's supernatural procedural hit "Sleepy Hollow" say they don't plan to shake-up the successful formula anytime soon. For starters, the Abbie and Crane relationship won't devolve into flirting/underlying sexual tension for a good while as yet.

Producer Len Wiseman says: "[Abbie and Ichabod] have a respect for each other. We're really not playing their relationship on the romantic side". The expanded second season will also boast new villains including the Pied Piper, a Succubus and a Wendigo. Timothy Busfield will guest star as Benjamin Franklin, while Sakina Jaffrey will play no-nonsense Sheriff Leena Reyes. [Source: The Live Feed]

Cuckoo

"Twilight" hunk Taylor Lautner tries something very different in the upcoming second season of BBC3's comedy series "Cuckoo". Lautner takes on the role of the hippie son of Andy Samberg's character from the first season, and the network has just launched the first trailer today. »

Demons Abound in Sleepy Hollow Season 2; Learn What Monsters and Surprises Await!

21 July 2014 7:15 AM, PDT | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

The new promo art for Season 2 of "Sleepy Hollow" already revealed that war is coming, but what else is making its way to the supernaturally challenged town? The Pied Piper for one thing, and that's just the beginning...

During Fox's presentation to the Television Critics Association over the weekend, series co-creator Len Wiseman said that, along with the aforementioned Piper, we'll also see new twists on a wendigo creature, a succubus character, and "the kindred."

His fellow co-creator Alex Kurtzman added that these creatures will be a "manifestation of what our characters are actually going through. The inner demons are manifested as literal demons."

So that covers the demon part of our headline. What about the surprises? Executive producer Mark Goffman teased, "We're going to drop a few bombs in this season with Crane (Tom Mison) and Katrina (Katia Winter) that neither of them could have ever prepared for."

Press Tour: 'Sleepy Hollow' season 2 panel teases what's next for Ichabod and Abbie

20 July 2014 5:47 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

"Sleepy Hollow" returned for a victory lap at the 2014 TCA summer press tour, cementing its status as one of the few breakout hits of the last TV season and the only broadcast network series to hold a second season panel at the annual event. As such, the session was full of (minor) spoilers and if you still haven't caught up with season one or want to go into season two knowing absolutely nothing you should probably stop reading this right now. If you're still with us, here's a breakdown of the hottest topics addressed by series stars Tom Mison, Nicole Beharie and John Noble and executive producers Alex Kurtzman, Roberto Orci, Len Wiseman, Mark Goffman and Heather Kadin: Season two ups the stakes, considerably "War is coming to town," Orci teases. "Quite literally as personified by Mr. Noble [whose character was revealed to be the son of Ichabod Crane in a huge season finale twist]. War can tear not only a town apart but a family apart. »

20 July 2014 5:22 PM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

Will Sleepy Hollow’s Ichabod and Abbie finally “go there” in Season 2?

Obviously, that was the first thing reporters wanted to know Sunday during the show’s panel at the Television Critics Association summer press tour — but just like the supernatural Fox drama itself, Ichabbie’s future isn’t that simple.

Universal Preparing to Turn Their Classic Monsters into a Marvel-esque 'Cinematic Universe'

16 July 2014 2:42 PM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

The first rumblings that Universal would be seeking out Roberto Orci and Alex Kurtzman to develop a remake of The Mummy began in September 2012 with Len Wiseman (Underworld) in talks to direct a script from Jon Spaihts (Prometheus). Now Orci and Kurtzman have split and Kurtzman remains on the project, Wiseman is no longer attached and Chris Morgan (Fast Five screenwriter) now involved, though to what capacity is unclear, though it does seem as if Spaihts' script is out the window. Even more than all of that, the goal is to not only reboot The Mummy, but to create a "cinematic universe" surrounding Universal's classic monsters, which also includes Dracula, Frankenstein, Bride of Frankenstein, Creature from the Black Lagoon, The Wolf Man, Phantom of the Opera and The Invisible Man. You know, the new Marvel formula of creating a universe so as to ensure one hit leads to several. It »

Roberto Orci & The Writers Of ‘X-Men: First Class’ Will Power Up The ‘Power Rangers’ Movie

15 July 2014 1:40 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Whew! You were so worried that the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers – as we like to remember from their original incarnation – would fall into the wrong hands (remember, when "morphed," the Rangers become powerful superheroes wearing color-coded skin-tight spandex battle suits and helmets with opaque visors). Just imagine this children’s fantasy series being directed by Len Wiseman or some producer that just helped maim some other franchise and then left it for dead. *Cough* Hmmm, let’s start over here. “The Power Rangers” movie has a new creative team! Roberto Orci, who has some free time on his hands now that he’s no longer part of Sony’s “The Amazing Spider-Man” series has signed on to executive produce the series because clearly he has a strong and passionate understanding of the kids series. The film has found some screenwriters as well and has hired “X-Men: First Class” writers Ashley Miller »
