Notes

Ghostbusters 2- Was either cancelled or put on hold.  A late rally did push the movie’s worldwide gross over it’s production budget.

Secret Life of Pets 2 will likely be out on July 11th, 2018. Expect it to use Toy Story 2 premise. Chris Renaud (Director) and Brian Lynch (Writer) (Secret Life of Pets) to return

Legend of Tarzan 2- is likely to be a thing despite US box office returns being lackluster.

The Purge 4- Likely to be a prequel which sets up why there is a purge.

Ice Age 6- There is no word on this, but the film somehow made a lot of money overseas.  STOP WATCHING GARBAGE!

Star Trek 4- Will happen and several of the cast onboard (with obvious exceptions- RIP Anton!).

 

There will be a Lights Out 2

Bourne 6 will expand the Jason Bourne universe (Think Bourne Legacy).

Bad Moms 2 or a Bad Dads movie is coming.

Winners and Losers

Winners

Universal – They brought back Jason Bourne and made considerable profit. They basically stole the premise for Toy Story for Secret Life of Pets, made an average film at best and made a huge profit and now have a new franchise to market.  Then they made a cheap horror movie using The Purge trope and again came out winning big.  It was a great month for Universal.

Losers

Ghostbusters- The film wasn’t great and it needed to be in order to push back all the intense hatred. (What was up with that?  Sexism?)  Plans for the sequel were stymied and maybe cancelled outright.

American audiences.  Many in the USA turned away from these films. Despite this fact, they did well and many will have sequels. Meaning that there will be a whole bunch of movies people in the United States do not care about.
