List Of Major Movie Studios And Their Movie Sequels
Reported by Outsiders - 11:20 AM 2012.08.02
THR has a compiling list of movies, their studios and how they stacked up for the spring and summer sessions. Below is a breakdown of each studio and what will be a new, a sequel or just forgotten...
Universal will have sequel release dates for for Snow White & the Huntsman, Seth MacFarlane's Ted and a new American Pie but Battleship sank like the Titanic and that franchise is done. The Bourne Legacy is no sure thing, but if the Aug. 10 release performs as expected, the franchise almost certainly will continue, with room for Matt Damon to return alongside Legacy star Jeremy Renner.
Even though it wasn't as huge as everyone wanted, Ridley Scott's Prometheus did fall on the positive side of making money and this means sequels. Sources are claiming that Fox has confirmed that Scott and the studio actively are pushing ahead with a follow-up (stars Michael Fassbender and Noomi Rapace are signed) and are talking to new writers because Prometheus co-scribe Damon Lindelof might not be available. "Ridley is incredibly excited about the movie, but we have to get it right. We can't rush it," says Fox president of production Emma Watts, who also has overseen the successful reboots of the X-Men and Planet of the Apes franchises. A Prometheus sequel would be released in 2014 or 2015.
This is a no-brainer as everyone knows that Sony and Columbia Pictures are looking to do a new trilogy or longer with The Amazing Spider-Man and Men In Black 3 after it's four year absence had people wanting more. The new Amazing Spider-Man movie is set for May of 2014 but no date set for the next Men In Black movie. Sony will be doing a sequel is 21 Jump Street. Channing Tatum and Jonah Hill are scheduled to shoot in fall 2013 and it's too early to tell if the Total Recall remake will see a sequel.
I hate to be the one to break the news but we will not be seeing a new John Carter sequel. But we will be seeing a lot of sequels coming out of Disney in the next two to three years including The Avengers, Iron Man 3 (May 2013), Thor: The Dark World (November 2013), Captain America: The Winter Soldier (April 2014) and Guardians of the Galaxy (August 2014). On the animation side, we will only be seeing Monsters University as no sequel has been announced for Brave but it may still be early.
Warner Bros. is losing a franchise in the Batman trilogy but may have ideas arise with a new Batman franchise or part of a planned Justice League ensemble that could connect to next summer's Man of Steel. Magic Mike turned out to be money hungry and has made a nice dollar for WB and they are talking about the sequel idea for this strip-tease act.
The studio's big franchise movie, G.I. Joe: Retaliation, was bumped from late June to March 2013. So Paramount will need to wait until Halloween for its next Paranormal Activity and until winter to potentially launch another franchise with the Tom Cruise starrer Jack Reacher.
