Let’s face it, sequels have always been, and always will be, a cash cow ripe for the milking. More often than not, said cow squirts out a sour one, ruining the original concept that they were based on, but, on the odd occasion, she provides a savoury treat with the cream rising above the original such as Rocky II, Aliens or Young Guns 2.
One long-standing franchise that has poured out four run-of-the-mill sequels to date is Final Destination yet the franchise’s producer, Craig Perry believes the cow still has some milk left in her and is still nudging at New Line to give the go ahead for a sixth entry. One of his concept trailers for said sequel has now been shared online by its creator, Alexander McNeill.
The trailer is entitled Final Destination 6: The Dark Age, and, truth be told, does something that would be more than a refreshing changed for the franchise, taking the death cheating frolics all the way back to the 12th century! Whilst the trailer is a mash up of more than 20 different films and TV shows, McNeill’s idea is “to draft behind ‘Game of Thrones’ and set it in the 12th century.”
This could certainly throw the door wide open to a wide range of prequels and sequels and it must be said that the idea of 12th century cunning casualties is sure to satiate fans of the franchise, regardless of the change of era. Without further ado here’s a look at what the next Final Destination could look like. Are we all excited?
