So Many Sequels That Just Never Were

In more Labyrinth news, a speculative movie poster from a sequel that never was.

It’s part of an exhibit at the iam8bit gallery in Los Angeles, “Sequels”, which imagines sequels that never happened, like The Last Starfighter: Xur’s Revenge.

“Sequels” features 40-odd artists and their visions of movies that weren’t ever made, but maybe should have been, like The Rocketeer 2: Crimson Skies.

Many of these movies were rumored (Labyrinth 2 as recently as 2014), one even announced (Buckaroo Banzai Against the World Crime League, announced in the credits of the original), but most had never even been contemplated until now. For more examples of superb sequels that never got made, check out the gallery below or, if you want an actual movie poster of a fictional film to hang in your room, you can check out iam8bit’s store At The Link!

One thought on “So Many Sequels That Just Never Were”

  1. I really like The Rocketeer. A sequel dealing with Russia could have been great. A Wonka Glass Elevator could have been good, too, though I think that book would have been even harder to film well. I like the book, but it’s even weirder than the Chocolate Factory.

    …and I still think that there’s room for a third National Treasure.
