We’ll lead off this edition of Sequel Bits with a clip from a Mad Max: Fury Road special feature that focuses on the creation of one of the most attention-getting aspects of the film: the Doof Wagon and its accompanying rider/musician/standard bearer, Coma the Doof Warrior.
In addition to that footage, we’ve got the following:
- There’s a new clip from Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials,
- And one from Hotel Transylvania 2,
- New reports arrive of a Wreck-It-Ralph sequel,
- Talk about the next James Bond is heating up,
- Sabertooth is probably not in Wolverine 3,
- Sony may already be developing a Goosebumps sequel.
Here’s the Mad Max: Fury Road clip. The film is on blu-ray now, and will be back in IMAX theaters for a wide release one week starting on September 11.
Here’s a new clip from Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials, in which Thomas (Dylan O’Brien) has races back to the Gladers with knowledge about an organization called WCKD, while Aiden Gillen’s character Janson leads soldiers to the Gladers’ location.
In this next chapter of the epic “Maze Runner” saga, Thomas (Dylan O’Brien) and his fellow Gladers face their greatest challenge yet: searching for clues about the mysterious and powerful organization known as WCKD. Their journey takes them to the Scorch, a desolate landscape filled with unimaginable obstacles. Teaming up with resistance fighters, the Gladers take on WCKD’s vastly superior forces and uncover its shocking plans for them all.
Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials will be released on September 18, 2015. The film stars Dylan O’Brien, Kaya Scodelario, Thomas Brodie-Sangster, Giancarlo Esposito, Aidan Gillen, Barry Pepper, Lili Taylor, and Patricia Clarkson.
Here’s a Hotel Transylvania 2 clip, with… bike stunts? OK, sure, why not.
In the sequel to Sony Pictures Animation’s 2012 hit, Dracula (Adam Sandler) and the gang work feverishly to teach his adorable half-human, half-vampire grandson to be a monster before Mavis and Jonathan (Selena Gomez and Andy Samberg) decide to pull up stakes and move the little tyke somewhere safer than Hotel Transylvania.
Opening September 25, Hotel Transylvania 2 also stars Mel Brooks, David Spade, Kevin James, Steve Buscemi, Fran Drescher, Keegan-Michael Key, Molly Shannon, Nick Offerman and Megan Mullally.
Stitch Kingdom reports that a trade blog representing the union handling animators (IATSE Local 839) has info on developments for a few projects over at Disney Animation. Nestled amongst listings for Disney Animation projects we knew about (like Moana and Gigantic) is a listing for Wreck-It Ralph 2. John C. Reilly had said just before D23 that he is attached to the sequel, and this report suggests it is moving forward. We have no other details at this time.
