The sequel is the ultimate catch 22. If you think too hard about setting one up, you won’t concentrate enough on the first film and it won’t warrant it. On the flip side, if you focus all your energy on a single, great film, a sequel will be in demand you may leave yourself without a place to take it.
These days, way more films fall into column A than column B and it’s a major problem in Hollywood. What about the good old days? The days when a studio would release an awesome movie, fans would love it, and that would be it? No sequel needed. Well, iam8bit in Los Angeles is harkening back to those days, but with a twist, for their next art exhibit: Sequel. Around 50 pieces of art are featured in the show, all for sequels that never happened. Follow ups to movies we know and love – Spaceballs, The Rocketeer, Labyrinth, Fight Club, Blade Runner etc. – made just for fun.
Sequel opens in Los Angeles on November 13 and, below, we’ve got a bunch of posters from the show including exclusive sequels to Hobo With A Shotgun, Videodrone and Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory. Read More »

In the Eighties and Nineties, few actors were as popular or marketable as Rick Moranis. The SCTV comedian had an incredible run of Hollywood comedies from Ghostbusters to Little Shop of Horrors, Spaceballs, Honey I Shrunk the Kids, and Little Giants. He hasn’t appeared in a film since 1996, however, and the general belief is that he’s retired. Not the case. In fact, Moranis has been quite active, doing occasional voice work, performing as a musician, and raising two kids as a single father. His latest album, My Mother’s Brisket, was just released.
In a new interview about that album, Moranis revealed he was very close to making Spaceballs III at one point (yes, you read that right) and that he was contacted about a Ghostbusters sequel several years ago. Read his quotes below. Read More »
