Wait. What trilogy? Oh, THIS trilogy:
Yep, I’d heard rumblings – and they’ve finally been confirmed. 20 years after the original movie, Devlin and Emmerich will be rebooting Stargate for the big screen.
I continue to be amazed by the franchise’s staying power and continuing evolution, from a Devlin-Emmerich feature film that grossed 200 million to a television juggernaut that, under the stewardship of Brad Wright and Robert Cooper, helped establish SyFy, built MGM’s television division, and generated close to a billion dollars in revenue for the studio, and now back to the big screen.
Last year, I wrote an entry about the future of Stargate,
, outlining my take on the various possible scenarios.
My conclusion? At the end of the day, it all comes down to one thing: Pleasing the fans – new fans AND established fans alike. [P.S. Wouldn’t a brief cameo by Samantha Carter or Rodney McKay or Dr. Nicholas Rush be truly awesome?].
Everything (not that old) is new again! I look forward to seeing the gate in action once more. Very exciting!
I notice fandom response has been mixed. What do you all think?
Well, thanks to everyone who took the time to take yesterday’s lateral thinking quiz. You all did very well. In fact, much better than I did. Check out all the answers, and more brainteasing questions, here: http://www.kent.ac.uk/careers/sk/lateral.htm
