It’s Paul here and I’m very excited to write this article today. For years, there were 3 classic movies that I absolutely loved which were in desperate need of sequels. The problem was, for many different reasons, that it seemed like these dream film sequels would never grace our movie theatre screens. Over the years, it seemed more and more unlikely I’d ever get to see follow ups to these amazing films, all I could do was dream about what might have been… Those 3 movies were: Big Trouble In Little China, Unbreakable, and The Incredibles.
Now I’m extremely pleased to say TWO of those 3 films will have sequels hitting theaters in the next 12 months! Sadly, it’s extremely unlikely we’ll ever get to a John Carpenter and Kurt Russell sequel Big Trouble In Little China. But last year we got Split directed by M. Night Shyamalan, which was a quasi-secret-sequel to his underrated masterpiece Unbreakable. Next year we’ll be lucky enough to get a full blown, traditional sequel to Unbreakable that builds off the events of both Unbreakable and Split, called Glass (Like Samuel L. Jackson’s Mr. Glass, who’s returning as the character for this upcoming movie).
Finally, at long last, this summer sees the premiere of The Incredibles 2! Goddamn, it looks fantastic! Sure, we had a teaser. But this is the first trailer that gives us any kind of indication of where the story’s going. It looks like it’s picking up right where the last film left off. I hate puns, but dammit it looks… INCREDIBLE! The character animation is better than ever and I’m so happy to see The Parr Family and Frozone back in action. Check out the trailer right here and below I’ve posted some great teaser posters for the movie. Enjoy!:
Looks like a blast, right? To be honest I was a little worried about the idea that almost no time will be passing between the films. But I must say after seeing that trailer, my doubts have been put to rest. Brad Bird is a fantastic director and it’s so good to hear that Michael Giacchino score again.
The Incredibles 2 hits theatres on 6/15/2018
As always, thanks for reading!
