10 Cloverfield Lane: when is a sequel not a sequel?

It's billed as a sequel to Cloverfield, but is 10 Cloverfield Lane all it seems? We take a look at the subject of unrelated sequels...

In an era where it's just about impossible to make a high-profile movie without at least something leaking onto the web, producer Jj Abrams seems to have pulled off the ultimate coup in recent months: he and his company Bad Robot have secretly created a follow-up, of sorts, to the 2008 hit monster movie, Cloverfield.

On the 15th January, a trailer landed for 10 Cloverfield Lane, a claustrophobic horror thriller that Abrams described in a statement to Collider as a "blood relative" of that earlier film directed by Matt Reeves.

The premise is this: Mary Elizabeth Winstead's character, Michelle, is injured in a car accident and wakes up in a bunker with 40-something survivalist, Howard (John Goodman).

Howard tells Michelle that some kind of

21 shocking straight-to-video sequels: How many have you seen?

21 shocking straight-to-video sequels: How many have you seen?
What's the only thing worse than a sequel? The only prospect worse than paying £10 at your local cinema to have your favourite movie ruined, forever. The answer has three words. Straight-to-video.

In the '90s, home release sequels became fairly common. You'd greet them with surprise at your local Blockbusters and then want to pull your eyeballs out when you took them home and watched them. They're probably called straight-to-dvd or straight-to-Blu-ray now, but they still exist.

With the announcement that Dolph Lundgren will be starring in Kindergarten Cop 2 (because of course), here are 21 absolute stinking sequels - the vast majority of which weren't even considered good enough for the cinema. How many of them have you watched?

1. American Pie Presents: Band Camp

2. American Pie Presents: Beta House

Maybe it's the Eugene Levy factor - just why did he keep starring in all the sequels?! - but we have weird

Is Snow White prequel The Huntsman the most pointless follow-up of all time?

Do we really need to know more about Chris Hemsworth and Charlize Theron’s characters from 2012’s best-forgotten fantasy?

Hollywood has form when it comes to completely unnecessary sequels. There have been four movies based on The Crow, another quartet based on Terminator and five Highlander flicks (producers of the latter presumably remaining steadfast in the face of protestations from right-minded cineastes everywhere that there should “be only one”. Sorry.) But it’s hard to imagine there’s a cinematic follow-up more pointless than the forthcoming prequel to Snow White and the Huntsman, the ingeniously titled The Huntsman.

Naysayers will surely point to the likes of S. Darko, a sequel to Richard Kelly’s beguiling cult tale in which the younger sister of Jake Gyllenhaal’s psychologically challenged teen hero Donnie Darko goes on her own time-travelling road trip. And there’s also American Psycho 2, in which a pre-fame

'Spring Breakers' sequel coming your way, courtesy of 'Trainspotting' writer
Look at my shee-yit... again. Yep, what started as iffy-sounding, blog-based rumor a couple of months ago seems now to have become a real thing: Harmony Korine's girls-gone-wild provocation "Spring Breakers" is getting a sequel. French sales and production company Wild Bunch this morning revealed an intriguing slate of titles that they'll be hawking this month at the Cannes market -- the parallel universe of low-profile and/or unproduced projects that runs busily alongside the film festival itself. Among them were a number of exciting-sounding ventures from name directors, including Gaspar Noé, Paul Verhoeven, Arnaud Desplechin and reigning Palme d'Or winner Abdellatif Kechiche. Naturally, however, the project that has grabbed all the headlines is "Spring Breakers: The Second Coming." A follow-up that will reportedly feature a mix of old and new cast members -- don't count on Selena Gomez returning, at least -- it will follow the original Breakers

15 incredibly tenuous horror and sci-fi film sequels

  • Den of Geek
Odd List Ryan Lambie 6 Nov 2013 - 06:50

From random films with altered names to unrelated storylines, we take a look at 15 incredibly tenuous horror and sci-fi film sequels...

The profit-driven nature of filmmaking usually means that, if a movie's a hit, sequels follow. And it's sometimes the case that, particularly in the realm of low-budget sci-fi and horror, those sequels are trotted out in a rush, or don't have anything to do with the film they're following.

This isn't to say that the sequels on this list are necessarily bad - it's a proper mixed bag of the great, the mediocre and the downright awful - but in each instance, these sequels have only vague links to their predecessors, or worse still, they're entirely different films rebranded to fit an existing franchise.  

Our list is by no means definitive - rather, we've chosen a collection of films that we find the most memorable.

FX developing an American Psycho sequel TV series

Serial killers are big business on TV these days, what with A&E's Bates Motel and NBC's Hannibal both gearing up for the second seasons, and now FX is looking to fill the void created by the impending Dexter finale, with Entertainment Weekly revealing that the network is developing a new series based upon author Bret Easton Ellis' controversial novel American Psycho, which was previously adapted as a movie by Mary Harron back in 2000 with Christian Bale (The Dark Knight Trilogy) in the lead role as Patrick Bateman.

According to EW's report the new project has been written by Stefan Jaworski - whose previous credits include the Nordic noir series Those Who Kill - and will serve as a sequel to the novel / movie, with a middle-aged Bateman taking on a young apprentice. Here's the official logline...

American Psycho TV Series Planned

American Psycho TV Series Planned
Even though American Psycho got an unexpected, largely unwanted direct-to-dvd sequel with 2002’s American Psycho II: All American Girl, someone at Us network FX has decided to push ahead with a follow-up series, setting Stefan Jaworski to write and produce the new show.Don’t expect Mila Kunis’ sequel character to pop up, however: the new series hopes to get us back to Patrick Bateman, with some brave actor attempting to fill Christian Bale’s stylish suit as we bring Bateman forward to the present day and watch as he trains up a protégé to take on his murderous ways.Though it seems odd for a TV network to attempt something as potentially bloody as American Psycho, American Horror Story, Hannibal and more have proved you can transfer horror to the small screen without losing the impact.Also getting the TV series treatment is Tony Scott’s 2004 Denzel Washington action thriller Man On Fire.

FX Developing ‘American Psycho’ Followup TV Series

FX Developing ‘American Psycho’ Followup TV Series
Serial killer Patrick Bateman is eying a return to pop culture, this time on TV.

FX and Lionsgate TV have partnered to develop a sequel TV series to “American Psycho,” the 2000 feature film that was based on Bret Easton Ellis’ 1991 novel of the same name. The pic was a breakout moment for star Christian Bale, and grossed over $34 million at the box office.

Lionsgate had previously stirred up “American Psycho” buzz when it announced in 2011 that it was planning a remake of the film for the big screen. The project, however, appears to have faded out of the running. The last sequel treatment that “American Psycho” saw was a direct-to-video release of “American Psycho 2,” which starred Mila Kunis and received mostly negative reviews.

The FX TV drama will center on iconic killer Patrick Bateman, now in his mid-50s but still just as outrageous and lethal as ever. Bateman

Move over American Psycho, Man on Fire is also headed to the small screen

  • JoBlo
Just in case you didn't get the memo, American Psycho is getting the small screen treatment. At least it's not American Psycho 2, right? No disrespect to Mila Kunis but that was a stinker. No one seems to hip on Patrick Bateman in his 50s acting crazy and preying on women. If that doesn't do it for you, maybe a Man On Fire series will. Yes another movie is getting the television treatment. Just add it to the list amongst American Psycho, Fargo, Bates Motel, and I just found out that Rambo...

FX has an idea of an American Psycho TV show, some kind of abstraction

While American Psycho already had a perfectly good sequel in American Psycho 2: All-American Girl—in which Mila Kunis portrayed a young girl who killed, then emulated sociopathic serial killer Patrick Bateman, and America portrayed a country who didn’t give a shit—FX is moving forward with another sequel anyway. The network that never met a show with “America” in the title it didn’t like is developing an American Psycho TV series, one that, like the rest of us, ignores the continuity of American Psycho 2, and picks up with Bateman in his mid-50s. Though his skin may ...

American Psycho is being developed as a television sequel series at FX

  • JoBlo
For every great movie there is the potential for a great sequel or an abyssmal failure. When Mary Harron's American Psycho premiered, it made Christian Bale a name to be remembered and divided audiences and critics with a violent and satirical look at America in the 1980s. It spawned one of the most atrocious sequels of all time, the cleverly titled American Psycho 2, starring Mila Kunis and William Shatner. Enough time has apparently passed that there is a new attempt to make a sequel to...

Brittney-Jade Colangelo’s Five Totally Unnecessary Horror Sequels

It has been said that there’s never too much of a good thing, but I think this rule doesn’t apply for films. Sequels are supposed to exist to further an already existing storyline, but I think a lot of people in the movie making industry have forgotten that rule in place of trying to milk a cash cow dry. Is it necessary for there to have been 12 sequels to the original The Land Before Time? No, but as long as your children like talking cartoon dinosaurs to teach them about friendship and mortality, you can bet your ass those films are going to continue selling like hotcakes.

Sometimes, we get lucky, and unnecessary remakes like Aliens show up and actually contribute to the success of the original. However, for every successful sequel, there’s guaranteed to be about 10 direct-to-dvd nightmares that make us want to cleanse our memories

Clip and New Characters from Tonight’s Excellent New Episode of Haven

  • ScifiMafia
This new season of Haven is absolutely terrific; familiar yet fresh, just the way we like our favorite shows. We would absolutely hang out with – heck, we would date, if we were available and they were willing – any of the main characters of this show. Charming, intelligent, witty, perceptive, loyal, supportive, and each one of them an absolute biscuit. Yes, even the Teagues. There is just something about this town…

And tonight we meet two more residents: psychiatrist Dr. Claire Callahan (Bree Williamson), and Jordan McKee (Kate Kelton) whom you’ve seen on the #EscapeToHaven videos. We have a screen shot of Dr. Callahan with Nathan and one of Jordan with Dwight, along with the press release and a clip from tonight’s new episode:

WWE Superstar Edge Returning to Syfy’s Haven as a Recurring Guest Star

  • Dread Central
It's been awhile since we've mentioned Syfy's hit series "Haven," but this latest news was just too juicy to ignore. WWE Superstar Edge is returning to the show and will appear in multiple episodes of the show’s third season including the premiere, September 21st at 10Pm Et/Pt.

From the Press Release:

Edge (aka Adam Copeland) will reprise his role of Dwight Hendrickson, a shrewd, longtime Haven resident and “troubled” handyman who can truly handle anything, and often does, as the town’s “cleaner.” A close ally of Nathan’s (Lucas Bryant), Dwight helps to cover up all of the town’s supernatural goings on and to keep Haven’s secrets hidden.

Season Three of "Haven" picks up immediately following the events of the gripping Season Two finale with Audrey (Emily Rose) having been brutally kidnapped, Nathan warned against pursuing a romantic relationship with Audrey, and Duke (Eric Balfour

Haven Season 3 Will Have Even More Edge

  • ScifiMafia
Some of the best news coming out of Syfy lately is the fact that Haven is returning for its third season on September 21, less than a month away. There is an atmosphere on the show, set in a small seaside town in Maine (no surprise, as it’s based on a novella by Stephen King), that combines with the exceptional cast chemistry and fantastically twisty plots to make it easily my favorite show on Syfy. You could say it has – sorry – an Edge.

Because it does. WWE superstar Edge (Adam Copeland) joined the show for a few guest appearances last season as Dwight, a “cleaner” of the aftermath of Troubled incidents, and now we hear from Syfy that he’ll be back for Season 3. It would be easy to suspect that this is stunt casting, but honestly, he’s a natural. The show has consistently excellent writing, but the actors still need to bring it,
