    Hellloooo! Mrs.Doubtfire Sequel In The Works

    Great news for '90s babies who were alternatingly charmed and horrified by Robin Williams' memorable role as a divorced Dad with an unconventional way of getting close to his kids. Talks of the long-awaited Mrs.Doubtfire II were never dead, just on hiatus...and a new movie may soon be bustling in to a theater near you.

    New Mario Kart 8 Trailer Shows off Anti-Gravity Tracks, Is Basically the Same as Every Mario Kart

    Yes, Mario Kart 8 looks very pretty. Does that really matter, though? Nintendo's entire business strategy for two generations now has been to push a graphically underpowered console that offers something new and different. No matter how many hang gliders, motorcycles, and anti-gravity tracks you throw in, Mario Kart's age is starting to show.

    Rumor: Pixar May Be Making A Star Wars Movie

    Since JJ Abrams confirmed on Monday that Episode VII is a real thing and not just some intricate smokescreen designed to lure grown men out of their mother's basements, we've had a lot of emotions to explore. We'd barely recovered when the rumor that we can expect a Pixar Star Wars in the future had us feeling a disturbance in the force again.

    Rejoice, Disillusioned White Dudes! Fight Club’s Getting a Graphic Novel Sequel

    If the Star Wars prequels taught us anything, it's that people love it when their favorite film universes get rebooted with annoying tiny kids in them, right? Of course they do! That's probably why Chuck Palahniuk recently revealed that he'll be returning to his 1996 novel Fight Club to tell the story of Jack and Marla's son -- but from the point of view of Tyler Durden. Yay?

    Finding Nemo Sequel’s Officially Finding Dory

    Pixar movies are pretty great, and Finding Nemo is still one of the best. And of all the characters in that fish-out-of-water-then-back-in-water story, none is more endearing than the memory-challenged Dory. Which is why it's totally awesome that Disney's/Pixar's long-awaited Finding Nemo sequel has been announced as Finding Dory. Opening in theaters on November of 2015, the movie will once again feature Ellen DeGeneres as Dory, but this time at the center of the plot.

    Bayonetta 2 Announced as Wii U Exclusive, Confuses Everyone

    Platinum Games tends to come out of nowhere with their games. Bayonetta, for example, stars a witch that uses her magical hair and four pistols to fight off enemies. Their first game, MadWorld, was a ridiculously violent beat 'em up for the Nintendo Wii. To this day, it stands out as one of the more violent titles amongst the Wii's meager Mature menagerie. Now it seems that they've made yet another zany choice: Bayonetta 2 has been announced, and it's a Wii U exclusive title.

    Twins Sequel In the Works, Called Triplets. Arnold, DeVito Return. Eddie Murphy Joins

    Though a fairly big comedy sequel announcement was made a couple days ago on Conan, when Will Ferrell dressed up as Ron Burgundy and announced Anchorman 2, The Hollywood Reporter brings us even better sequel news today: Twins, the 1988 movie featuring Arnold Schwarzenegger and Danny DeVito as the titular twins, will be getting a sequel. Called Triplets, the third, newly discovered brother to the Schwarzenegger-DeVito pair would be Eddie Murphy. This legitimately sounds great.

    Will Ferrell as Ron Burgundy Announces Anchorman Sequel, Most of Original Team and Cast Return

    On Conan last night, Will Ferrell appeared as Anchorman's Ron Burgundy, flute and all, and announced that Anchorman will be getting a sequel. Though fans of film, comedy, and not milking a cow that gave you the perfect amount of milk might feel that the movie didn't need a sequel, most of the original team is already slated to return, so the movie probably has a good chance at providing some good ol' newsroom entertainment value.

    Chronicle is Getting a Sequel

    Back when the trailer for Chronicle released, we knew the movie would be some form of entertaining -- either because things would blow up for two hours, or because the movie would actually be a fresh take on superpowers. Even though the movie followed some overused tropes, such as having a big fight between a hero and villain, and being shot in the handy-can style of The Blair Witch Project and Cloverfield, the movie still turned out to be surprisingly good. It actually did deliver a somewhat fresh take on superpower movies. Hollywood thought it was good too, good enough for it to be getting a sequel, in fact.

    Video Game Sequels That are Better Than the Originals

    Video games are, by their very nature, iterative. They are constantly being revised, updated and broken down to their core parts in order to build it all back up again. In a great many ways, it’s just LEGOs with software. Some things are salvaged, some things are completely given up and others are refined. Regardless, often enough, these changes are inevitably brought to bear in a sequel. And after that, they go through the whole process again before yet another sequel. It should come as no surprise then that with all of these changes and updates that sequels can tend to be better than their original counterparts. This even includes some of those games that many might consider classics. Sure, some might call that blasphemy but the fact of the matter is that some sequels just are better than the originals. So, here’s a handy list of those sequels that most definitely are.

    Movie Franchises That Died on the Vine at Number Four

    The newest release in the long-winded Pirates of the Caribbean movie franchise is now in theatres. I’m sure, somewhere, somebody is rejoicing that fact. It’s probably worth mentioning that my despair didn’t stop said movie from raking in boatloads of cash. Literal boatloads. Okay, not really. But still, a lot of money was made.  My despair also had nothing to do with Roger Ebert giving the most recent iteration fewer stars than Mel Gibson’s latest outing, The Beaver. Yes, the one where he wears a beaver puppet on his hand throughout the film. That is what scored more favorably. This turn of events brought to mind other movie franchises that managed the trifecta but couldn’t quite pull off the fourth. Also, just to get it out of the way, I am fairly positive The Matrix would be included here were it not for the remarkably sane decision to stop at three.

    Kick-Ass Sequel? Color Us Skeptical

    After a significant amount of pre-release backlash and a opening weekend that netted slightly less money than a kids movie that's been out for a month, it's still not too late (early?) for the people behind Kick-Ass to start talking about a sequel. Stars Aaron Johnson and Christopher Mintz-Plasse, in an interview with MTV News, said that there was one in the works. Mintz-Plasse's character Red Mist would be the villain. Of course, their info seems to be based on a conversation Mintz-Plasse had with Mark Millar "a few months ago," and we all know that Mark Millar never makes unfounded claims about movie deals that never actually happened. Ever.
