The only movie that was able to pull off the decades old wait for a sequel was Jurassic World. And even then, while the second and third movies made money, they weren't really all that well liked compared to the original. Plus, JW was kinda tongue in cheek, almost making fun of itself for being a sequel made 20 years later. They even had a line about how it's not just enough to have dinosaurs, they have to be bigger and better. By all means, that little nod to it being ridiculous to make a sequel to a movie from that long ago made the movie delightful. Had they pulled the entire thing off straight, it just wouldn't have had that punch, and it would have been Narmy.It's finally happening: Mike Myers is making a fourth Austin Powers movie.
Now, this isn't too surprising, considering he said back in the day that he wanted to make an Austin Powers movie for every James Bond movie there is, but this begs the question: why has he waited so long to do another one? The last Austin Powers movie was almost fifteen years ago, and he's clearly gotten older and heavier since then . . . I mean, yeah, it was fun to see him reprise Dr. Evil again recently on SNL, but that's SNL, it worked in that format, but I don't see how he can pull off doing Austin, Dr. Evil, or any other character in a new movie after all these years.
Agreed. Like it wasn't obvious a sequel was inevitable. I'm just surprised we haven't had it yet.Oh, and why is everybody acting surprised that there's going to be an AVATAR 2? James Cameron said when the first one came out that he was alreadyt planning a sequel, so it's not like this is anything new to us.
