Re: X-MEN: First Class sequel (Casting, Rumors, Pics till release)

‘The Hobbit 3′ Scheduled For July 18, 2014

I have to say, this was a real dick movie by Warners. They are a bunch of bullies. What chance does X-men have against the final Hobbit movie and final part of the LOTR saga? Hobbit 3 would have done great ANY TIME of the year!

FOX won't want to play chicken by having their movie still be released on the same date. The question now is, where are they now going to move this thing to on the calender?

Re: X-MEN: First Class sequel (Casting, Rumors, Pics till release)

If Fox is confident with "X-Men: Days of Future Past" as they seem to be, they don't have to move it anywhere. I'm kind of surprised Warner and MGM didn't just keep the traditional December scheduling. 2014 is still pretty open in terms of dates so if Fox does decide to move X-Men there are plenty of options. I'm not concerned about this at all.

Yeah, that is really bizarre. FIVE LOTR related movies released in December and then the last in the middle of Summer? WTF?

Warners needs to put Hobbit 3 in December where it belongs.

That's just sheer speculation. That would be cool to see Ian reprise his role though if it happened.

i really hope they don't use that idea of Magneto killing Kennedy. seems about as silly as Roddenberry wanting Spock to kill Kennedy.
What about Red Dwarf where they had Kennedy kill Kennedy?

It better. I hate it when stuff I'm anticipating as much as these two come out the same day. I try not to go to the movies unless it's something I really want to see, and it's aggravating when I get two things on the same weekend, while there are whole months in the other part of the year when there isn't a single thing I want to see coming out.
Amen to that.

Yeah, they don't want Hobbit 3 to be remembered the way Matrix 3 is remembered.

You release two sequels within roughly half a year, you're gonna piss people off.

I feel like it worked just fine with the last two Harry Potter movies.

The article contained nothing to back up the claim though.

Oh come on.. i don't buy that for a second.

How can someone get an overload if the space between is 6 months?

It's not like eating pasta daily for two weeks until the thought of it makes you sick.. 6 months is plenty of time.

"Sequel Overload" only happens when you see a trailer and your response goes from "Ooh, another one!" to "Ugh, another one?"

^Indeed. I don't recall being realised six months after part 2 did 'Back to the Future Part 3' any harm. Or Kill Bill Vol 2 now that I think about it.

There's a world of difference between a studio pooing out sequels just for the hell of it and releasing multiple instalments in a series. Especially when the films are shot back-to-back and the audience are fully expecting several films before they even see the first one.

The Matrix sequels are a particularly poor example because...well, they were rubbish. Waiting an extra six months to see 'Revolutions' would not have improved matters.
