I’ll be honest right out of the gate. Most of these look like they’ll be awful. There was a reason you hadn’t heard of them.
1. Bad Boys For Life
This will be the third instalment in the Bad Boys trilogy. If you are thinking it will be good let me remind you of some other sequels that came out 10 years after the previous film. Dumb and Dumber To, Indiana Jones And The Kingdom Of The Crystal Skull, Zoolander 3. Decade later sequels are almost always garbage. Here’s hoping Bad Boys breaks the cycle.
2. Sherlock Gnomes
It’s the sequel to Gnomeo and Juliet from 2011. I don’t know whose idea it was but it’s happening and somehow Johnny Depp will play the main character. My main issue isn’t that Gnomeo and Juliet is getting a sequel; my main issue is that they didn’t keep with the Shakespeare theme. I would have loved it if they did “Much Ado About Gnoming”
3. The Purge 4
I’m confused as to how this movie could happen. I’m not opposed to it but at the end of the last Purge movie *SPOILER ALERT* a new President is elected and promises to abolish the Purge. It was a neat way to wrap up the series but with the 4th instalment, it feels like beating a dead horse.
I loved 2007’s Enchanted. It was a fun adventure and while it doesn’t make my top 10 list it was very enjoyable. Disenchanted is a sequel coming a decade later and as we previously established, those rarely do well. We have no plot details yet but here’s hoping it lives up to its predecessor.
Any movies coming in 2018 you can’t wait for? Let me know in the comments!
