Re: Wanted : Mark Millar Teases Next 'Wanted'?
[H]ere's the deal... had this movie's opening weekend hit 30 million then we would have a sequel. Had it hit 35 I'm told that's a franchise. Advance tracking [a few days ago] suggested we could be looking at 40. But after Friday night it looks like opening weekend could be upwards of 50 MILLION DOLLARS, with the movie scoring as high with women as men (unusual for an action movie, oddly, as all the girls I know love action movies). I thought we'd be in trouble up against that wee robot guy, but everything's going great.
So... Hollywood logic demands sequels. (The thing you have to remember is that there was never any way for Wanted to beat WALL-E, for one simple reason: the MPAA ratings. The former was R, automatically restricting its potential viewer pool; the latter was--what, G? PG? Kid-friendly, parent-approved. It's not bad that Wanted came in second; it's good--as opposed to, say, third or fourth--and even better that it came in so strongly.) The thing is--I won't specify, but there's a plot development late in the movie that pretty much left me not really wanting any sequels. I mean, I liked the movie and the plot development was logical, even a little satisfying. It's just... why would I want to see another one now? (Okay, if you must have a hint: see the last paragraph under "One of the Great Moments in Modern Cinema.")
