Neill Blomkamp's Alien 5: What Happened To This Unmade Movie?

They say, "In space, no one can hear you scream." But we've seen through eight Alien films that plenty of people can hear you scream if you're in a spaceship. The Xenomorphs have no problem causing their victims a lot of pain. Even though we've seen them in many films, fans will mostly agree that after Aliens, the franchise was never the same. In 2015, filmmaker Neill Blomkamp announced he had been working on a new Alien project. This was even a surprise to Fox, which owned the series....

WTF Happened to Highlander 3: The Final Dimension?

When Connor MacLeod says "There Can Be Only One" in the original Highlander, he had no idea he'd be repeating that line for years. Just when he thinks he has finally made it to be the only one, another immortal seems to pop up, challenging him for that title. How many "ones" can there be? It turns out a lot.

WTF Happened to Highlander 2?

When the original Highlander became a sleeper hit on home video it was only a matter of time before a sequel was made. Even though Connor had won the Gathering and had once again become mortal surely there was a way to get him to pick up the sword once again.

WTF Happened to Police Academy?

Police Academy was one of the most successful film franchises of the eighties. From 1984-1989, Warner Bros churned out an entry every year, and the movies were all decent-sized hits and giant in video rental stores the entire decade. But how did the franchise start? How did an R-rated comedy about a bunch of misfit, wannabe cops launch a family-friendly franchise? In this episode of What Happened to this Movie, we dig into how Steve Guttenberg’s Mahoney, Michael Winslow’s sound-effects...

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 4: What Happened to this Unmade Movie?

Those of us that grew up in the 90s remember the complete overtaking of pop culture that the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles experienced.

The original live-action film came out in 1990 and followed with two sequels in quick succession. While the first film was lauded by audiences, the second film began to show...

Movie sequels now flood the multiplexes every summer. What are some of the best movies that deserved a sequel?

I Still Know What You Did Last Summer: Fun Slasher Or Cash Grab Sequel?

When Scream hit big, another group of imitators sprung up as every studio wanted to cash in. Thus, you end up with some quality films like Urban Legend or I Know What You Did Last Summer. Sadly as what happened in the 80s the quality began to slip and the overabundance of slasher films began to get tired and boring. Even some sequels to the better ones see this fatigue as is the case with I Still Know What You Did Last Summer. Maybe it's time to revisit this sequel and see how it hold up.

WTF Happened to Highlander?

When someone says "There can be only one" what immediately pops into your head? For just about everyone it will be the movie Highlander, starring Christopher Lambert, Sean Connery, Clancy Brown and directed by Russell Mulcahy .

WTF Happened to Batman Forever

To say that 1995's Batman Forever was a departure for the franchise is a massive understatement. Director Joel Schumacher's candy-colored comic book was a far cry from Tim Burton's gothic depiction of the Caped Crusader, complete with a new actor underneath the cowl, with Val Kilmer replacing Michael Keaton. While it certainly paved the way for the abysmal Batman & Robin, people forget that Batman Forever was a critical and commercial success (even with nipples on the batsuit). In this...

What Really Happened to Gladiator?

When Ridley Scott's Gladiator hit the big screen in 2000, it captivated audiences worldwide with its thrilling tale of honor, vengeance, and redemption set in ancient Rome.

Scott was able to snatch up a new young actor named Tom Cruise (ever hear of him?) just before he was about to become one of the biggest stars in the world and pit him...

WTF Happened to The Beastmaster?

B​ack in the 1980s, sword and sorcery films seem to be a go-to genre. Roger Corman himself made a handful of them as all you needed was some open spaces, a strapping hero in a leather loincloth, and preferably some buxom beauties who were in some sort of trouble, probably from some sort of evil wizard. One person who saw a great opportunity to make a fantasy epic was probably not the first one to come to mind. A​fter making a couple of family-friendly films, Don Coscarelli burst onto the...

Spider-Man: Across The Spider-Verse Easter Eggs

Ghostbusters 3: Hellbent - What Happened to this Unmade Movie?

I​t's hard to imagine now, but there was a time when a sequel to a highly popular and profitable movie wasn't a done deal. Each was film renegotiated just before they were made. Actors signing multi-film deals was very rare. Now if you decide to do a Marvel film, you may be asked to sign a nine-movie contract. While Ghostbusters II wasn't a critical darling, it did make its budget back ten times over. Surely another film had to be in the works. S​ome of the cast and creative team were ready...

The Joker vs Bane: Face-Off

When Christopher Nolan took over as the director of the Batman film franchise, he promised to ground the characters in a real-world to show how these super heroics would actually work. While that promise may not have ultimately come true, his Batman trilogy did put a great cinematic spin on the world of the Dark Knight.

WTF Happened to Dogma?

One of director Kevin Smith’s most beloved - but also controversial - movies, Dogma, has seemingly vanished. The film, which remains his highest-grossing domestic release (by just a few hundred thousand dollars), was a considerable DVD hit back in the day, noted for its wildly un-PC commentary track where, amongst other things, Kevin Smith took aim at the film’s leading lady, Linda Fiorentino.

WTF Happened to Losin' It?

Pop quiz - what’s the most obscure Tom Cruise movie? If you’re thinking Lions for Lambs or maybe Far & Away, or even my beloved All the Right Moves, you’re wrong. Tom Cruise’s most obscure movie ever is, without a doubt, 1983’s Losin’ It. One of four films Cruise made in 1983 (along with The Outsiders, Risky Business and All the Right Moves), this had the misfortune of being released just a few months before Cruise’s career took off.

WTF Happened to Quentin Tarantino’s Unmade Vega Brothers Movie?

If you're a hardcore Quentin Tarantino fan, you'll know that Michael Madsen's sadistic Vic Vega in Reservoir Dogs and John Travolta's Vincent Vega in Pulp Fiction are brothers.

WTF Happened to the Unmade Batgirl Movie

Leprechaun vs Wishmaster

The power of a wish is an extraordinary thing. For some, it will push them to achieve greatness in their work or their personal life. For others, it’s your heart’s desire being fulfilled at long last. And for these two supernatural beings, wishes can be the ultimate weapon.

WTF Happened to the Unmade Watchmen Movie?

Zack Snyder’s Watchman was relatively well-received by fans and overall was a box office success.
