Not quite coming soon: Movie posters for imaginary film sequels


‘Death: Diabolik’ by Robert Sammelin
 
It’s a game for long distance car journeys where you and a buddy sit and discuss those films you think would make good sequels. You know the kind of thing: American Psycho 2: The Race for the White House in which Patrick Bateman has the good fortune to become Republican Senator with ambitions to be the next President; or South by Southeast the follow up to Hitchcock’s North by Northwest, which begins on the same train with the top bunk honeymoon embrace between Mr. and Mrs. Thornhill, Cary Grant and Eva Marie Saint.  Of course, some sequels are already out there as books, while others have characters or situations that suggest prequels waiting in the wings. All of which brings us to these rather cool posters for various imaginary sequels and prequels, all of which are available to buy.
 
Odessa_Sawyer-Pan_s_Labyrinth_Fall_of_the_Underworld.jpg
One day I do hope this will happen, and that it will be as promising as Odessa Sawyer’s poster makes it look: ‘Pan’s Labyrinth: Fall of the Underworld.’
 

‘Buckaroo Banzai Against the World Crime League’ by Robert Sammelin
 
Alex_Griendling-The_Rocketeer_2.jpg
Simply, classy design: ‘The Rocketeer 2’ by Alex Griendling.
 
Ashley_Wood-Barbarella_2.jpg
Looking slightly darker and more Frank Frazetta-like, Ashley Wood’s ‘Barbarella 2.’
 
Marco_D_Alfonso-Batman_2.jpg
Marco D. Alfonso imagines a follow-up to Adam West’s cinematic turn as the caped crusader in ‘Batman 2.’
 
Ruben_Ireland-Labyrinth_2.jpg
This would have been fun, Labyrinth 2: Return of the Goblin King’ by Ruben Ireland.
 
Matt_Haley-They_Still_Live.jpg
This I’d like to have seen, Matt Haley’s poster for ‘They Still LIve’ the sequel to John Carpenter’s classic ‘They Live!’
 
Andy_Fairhurst-Willy_Wonka_the_Great_Glass_Elevator.jpg
Now this should have been made, as Roald Dahl’s book was already written, ‘Willy Wonka and the Great Glass Elevator’ starring Gene Wilder by Andy Fairhusrt.
 
Arno_Kiss-DOWN.jpg
After ‘Up’ the only way is ‘Down’ by Arno Kiss.
 
James_Gilleard-IRON_GIANTS.jpg
This could have been a franchise and even a TV series ‘Iron Giants’ by James Gilleard.
 
Reservoir_Dogs_2_The_Bitches_Collar.jpg
Not as iconic as the original poster but interesting to see where this could go, Chris B. Murray’s ‘Reservoir Dogs 2: The Bitches Collar.’
 
Muxxi-Beetlejuice_2.jpg
And this one, ‘Beetlejuice 2’ by Muxxi may indeed be coming soon as the sequel appears imminent...
 
Andras_Baranyai-The_Shining_Prequel.jpg
And one prequel…before ‘The Shining’ there was ‘The Torrances’ by Andras Baranyai.
