The Net Sequel

(Welcome to DTV Descent, a series that explores the weird and wild world of direct-to-video sequels to theatrically released movies. In this edition, we visit the dark web for a peek behind the digital curtain in search of the sequel to the Sandra Bullock hit The Net!)

Everyone knows the interweb is a scary place, but some of us are old enough to remember a time when the promise of an online wealth of information sounded like a good thing. Hollywood was even quicker than the real world in dissuading us of the notion, though, as they rushed to develop and release cautionary tales about the nightmare heading our way across dial-up phone lines and digital threads. Movies like Hackers (1995), Strangeland (1998), and You’ve Got Mail (1998) terrified viewers with the possibilities, but it was 1995’s The Net that really drove the point home.

If our lives are nothing more than a series of zeroes and ones, then we’re all just a keystroke away from being erased forever. The concept’s less frightening now that I have student loan debt, but in the mid ’90s? Nightmare fuel. Well, in theory. The Net isn’t exactly a good movie, let alone a classic thriller too precious for a low-rent straight to DVD follow-up. It’s fine.

That’s good news for a sequel, though, right? New filmmakers have less of a hill to climb in the hopes of matching the original and only need to deliver a solid, competent thriller. Unfortunately, we got The Net 2.0 (2006) instead.

Devil May Cry tv show

Last month, producer Adi Shankar (The Grey, Dredd, Lone Survivorteased the following message: “I can confirm that I’m working with an iconic Japanese gaming company to adapt one of their iconic video game series into a series.” One of the trades reported that he was hyping a The Legend of Zelda TV show, but that was incorrect.

Instead, Shankar revealed today that he’s working on a Devil May Cry TV show based on the popular video game and that it will “be a part of a multiverse with” his Netflix animated series Castlevania. Read More »

Darth Vader Comic

Ever since Marvel took over the Star Wars comics, the galaxy far, far away has featured some outstanding story arcs that have helped to expand Star Wars canon in the wake of the erasure of all the Star Wars Legends that came before. When it comes to Darth Vader, the Dark Lord of the Sith’s own comic book series has done a much better job of fleshing out the villain than any of the episodes in the prequel trilogy. In fact, the current arc in Marvel’s Darth Vader could have major ramifications on the future of Star Wars, especially when it comes to the power of the dark side and The Force in general.
