Unofficial Prequels: Films That May Have Been Prequels but You Didn’t Know It

24 May 2015 6:10 PM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

 Do some films get made as secret sequels to unconnected earlier films, turning those older films into prequels? It may just be random coincidence, but some movies seems to work perfectly as continuations of earlier, unrelated films. The earlier films may not be official prequels, and they weren’t made by the same people—or even the same studio—but there are hints, if you look for them, which indicate that later filmmakers possibly looked at earlier projects and secretly wrote their newer films as informal sequels to those prior hits. Or maybe this is all just unplanned happenstance. Look at our list and see what you think.

 

Fight Club is a prequel to the Dark Knight: The theory is that the unnamed narrator (Edward Norton) of Fight Club goes on to become the Joker (Heath Ledger) in the Dark Knight. The evidence for this…The narrator of Fight Club »

17 May 2015 12:13 AM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

They may be best known today for their later roles, but these six stars all got their first break by playing super heroes on TV. Maybe these shows aren’t the most memorable or well-made super hero projects, and they aren’t the highlight of the actor’s career, but these little shows jump-started the careers of some future celebrities.

Bruce Lee

Started out as—Kato, the Kung-Fu fighting sidekick to the Green Hornet in the TV series The Green Hornet (1966).

After that—Lee had a recurring role in the detective series Longstreet before returning to Hong Kong to star in a highly successful trio of films; The Big Boss (1971); the Chinese Connection (1972) and the Way of the Dragon (1972). His first and only Hollywood film was Enter the Dragon (1973). Lee died young and his legend has grown ever since. He is considered by many as the greatest martial arts star in the history of film. »

Graphic Review: Batman ’66 Meets the Green Hornet

3 April 2015 11:16 AM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

DC and Dynamite Comics takes us back in time with a reunion of two dynamic duos that many will say is long overdue. Batman ’66 Meets the Green Hornet sees the two pair of heroes and their sidekicks, Robin and Kato, joining forces to battle evil for a third time. Since all the actors from the television show have either aged far beyond being able to don their respectable costumes or passed on, it’s a dream pairing that could only be made possible in the pages of a comic book. 

What could force Batman, the Green Hornet, Robin, and Kato to join forces again? How about the return of General Gumm and his sticky-fingered minions in Gotham City? This time the gooey crime lord has a cohort in villainy. The Joker has joined in on the dastardly depravity!

Filmmaker Kevin Smith works against stereotype by providing a clean and wholesomely »

Yet despite his impressive legacy, there's never been an official film detailing the life and times of the legendary performer. At least, that was the case until today's announcement that his family is seeking to tell the full story of Bruce Lee's extraordinary life. Collider ran a press release naming Shannon Lee, Bruce's daughter, as a producer on the still developing project. Lawrence Grey and Janet Yang, of Leaving Las Vegas and The People vs. Larry Flynt fame . respectively, will »
