The Los Angeles art gallery and studio iam8bit is hosting an upcoming art show called Sequel. The show will exhibit work from over 40 different artists where they have designed promotional movie posters for the sequels they never saw, but wanted to. Entertainment Weekly was nice enough to share these sneak peek images of Sequel!
The point of this exhibit, other than a place to showcase some real talent, is to look into our obsession with making sequels to films that, for the most part, don't need them. We might not need them, but it's still okay to want them.
Yes! But this should really have the tagline "Return of the Goblin King's super tight pants."
Buckaroo Banzai Against the World Crime League
I know that people are still upset that the promised sequel never came to be. But its fan-made poster can now live on forever as an awesome piece of art.
Fight Club 2: The Second Rule
Chuck Palahniuk did announce at the 2013 SDCC that a Fight Club sequel was in the works, so maybe a followup movie isn't totally out of the question. Let's keep our fingers crossed.
I would definitely go see Jane Fonda back again as Barbarella.
The Rocketeer: Crimson Skies
Rocketpacks and Gee Bee Racers galore to fight the Soviet threat. True, this plot might be considered a bit outdated now. But that doesn't mean it still couldn't make a cool movie.
By the looks of this poster, this fictitious sequel has already won a 2014 Academy Award!
Blade Runner 2054
The original 1982 movie took place in 2019. So it makes sense 37 years past the 2017 date would focus on 2054! Math. Sure, I could be interested to see what the world looks like at that point.
Sequel will open on Nov. 13 and will remain open until the 23rd. Admission is free but be sure to RSVP here. Maybe this will inspire some of Hollywood to make these sequels a thing in the future!
