Hollywood no longer encourage viewers new ways to see the world change around more reasonable?
The brand film always makes the audience interested and bring resources is great for manufacturers, but in a world of constantly changing rapidly as today, then play safe so can be counterproductive.
Talk about the future a bit, the next will be the landing of the movie Star Wars or Avatar to every Christmas from 2021 to 2027; Disney’s latest plan will be 8 Marvel movie theaters before 2022. Speaking closer, this year, the cult brand like Avengers, X-Men, Frozen, Toy Story, Spider-Man, Lego and Star Wars; or those who are more reticent as Godzilla, Men in Black, Shaun the Sheep, Angry Birds, Kingsman, even Rambo also massively in theaters. Never audience can see a number of large and diverse sequel so.
Of course this is nothing new. For example, the case of The Fall of a Nation launched in 1916, is the sequel of the film is less well in 1915, Birth of a Nation. But at the time, the sequel merely the little B-movie budget, to reuse costumes, props and equipment in the previous section. Contrary to the present, when the sequel is always more investment and spending more violence. Big Avengers Sequel: Endgame is probably $ 356 million investment, $ than 220 million of The Avengers (2012).
Not difficult to understand why attacks recycling role in cinema industry, because in the past it can reduce the cost of production but the new revenue is worth mentioning. Avengers: Endgame has become a landmark $ 2 billion film rolled fastest ever, outstripping the first film of its $ 1 billion; the top 10 highest-grossing film history, it is the sequel of all six, and all were released within 4 years.
But more important than the main revenue is reputation. The film picked up the most money in the US (calculated inflation) is not the sequel that is Gone with the Wind. But nobody knows in advance whether a film not yet been tested by fire has been successful, despite the ability of the original film can bring higher profits and it gathered many talents are. What success a sequel is always considered a more reliable food’m wearing.
Sometimes there are exceptions such as Solo: Star Wars Story or share similar tablets coming Avatar artillery threat bottomless gold mine Marvel, the Right had carefully calculate every move in advance of their planned expansion.
Reason for success of the sequel has long been no longer a secret: they are less risky because the manufacturers know they must do in order to please the audience; and there’s nothing like a guest smoking “Money aware” that the industry was too familiar.
A powerful fan base is always ready whenever they liked brand is continuing; Other authors of the ordinary is less salty than they still gave what eyes accustomed accustomed ears. Staffing issues also received a lot of attention and is always a topic is hotly debated. The audience was delighted with the eye-catching character, tricks as well as the dialogue is funny, iconic; they often create links between actor and character.
Film industry recognize the position of this phenomenon when losing the audience on hand small screen in the year 60. The spray bomb as Cleopatra and Hello Dolly! almost makes the studio bankrupt, but then they reshape the path to discover the potential of Jaws and Star Wars. The series simply gradually be eliminated by the pairings from the 80s and since then, the sequel never suffer underdog, for example as Avengers: Endgame: from merging several series related together, they can create a cinematic universe. Man of Steel, Alien vs Predator and Fantastic Beast are the first step of the roadmap similar.
Should there be caring about the sequel is getting stronger, but there are cases when they rapidly than the predecessor section; may include as The Godfather Part II, The Dark Knight and Terminator 2. The sequel allows characters to be developed, expanded context and the story is enjoyable. But the parts successor to do more than that, because most of the stories do not have a second chance, let alone the third, fourth, five; consequences entail also the disappearance of creativity from filmmakers. The audience also seemed fed up with the sequel is cooked badly as Jaws: The Revenge, Batman and Robin, Superman IV, Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen, Sex and the City 2.
The biggest obstacle of the sequel, as well as the core of innovation, obviously new ideas. But this is like sacrificing the long-term interests of the movie to cater to the immediate objective. In 2013, Steven Spielberg anticipate that blockbusters will come at “broken”, became the spray bomb. If the former, every time the film in theaters is a world with characters, plot, storyline, space and new vision. Hollywood not only transfusion staging screenwriters, directors, designers, actors and techniques that
