Tl;dr: Every movie franchise you ever loved is coming back, and so are some you never really cared for in the first place. After the jump:
- Edgar Ramirez thinks there will be more Point Breaks.
- Yes, another Indiana Jones movie is coming. Eventually.
- Quentin Tarantino makes more noises about a Kill Bill 3.
- My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2 unveils a new poster.
- Will The Conjuring 2 reference The Amityville Horror?
- A new Fantastic Beasts image is all about the No-Maj.
- Plus, new photos from Inferno and Kung Fu Panda 3.
Plenty of people would argue that one Point Break was enough — that it wasn’t worth making one remake, let alone think about making more. But Point Break remake star Édgar Ramírez is not one of those people. “I’m just the second Bodhi. I think there will be more,” he told Variety at the premiere. “I have the feeling this is only the first re-imagination of Point Break.” And for better or for worse, Ramírez may be right. While the film has floundered in its U.S. release, it put in a solid performance at the all-important Chinese box office.
Star Wars might have been the crown jewel of Disney’s Lucasfilm acquisition, but Indiana Jones was a pretty big get too. So now that one of those franchises has successfully been revived, how about the other? Walt Disney Company chairman and CEO Bob Iger reiterated once again, this time to Bloomberg, that more Indiana Jones movies “will be coming.” There’s still no word on when, or how, or who’ll be involved, but just in case you were worried they forgot, you can feel reassured.
Quentin Tarantino still hasn’t given up hope of making a Kill Bill Vol. 3. He acknowledged as much in a recent conversation with Variety:
I’m not committing to it, but I wouldn’t be surprised if The Bride made one more appearance before the whole thing is said and done. I am talking to Uma [Thurman] about it just a little bit. Some of the stuff that I’d written that never made it into the movie that maybe I could use.
The filmmaker has gone back and forth on the idea of a third Kill Bill over the years, but maybe it’s not surprising he wants to revisit The Bride and the rest of the DiVAS — he additionally revealed that he still considers the two-part original to be his “most visionary movie.”
Given that the tagline of My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2 is apparently “People change. Greeks don’t,” it seems rather appropriate that the poster art hasn’t changed much, either. You can see the sequel poster side-by-side with the original above. And then you can go find out exactly how little has changed for Toula (Nia Vardalos) and her big fat Greek family when My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2 arrives in theaters March 25, 2016.
