A Labyrinth sequel? Now that would be pretty interesting
Not if they ruin it like most "remakes" have done.
It's maddening, I tell you!
too many great movies have bad sequals
IE- CaddyShack 2
Batman & Robin
there are many more but i am having a brain fart right now! LOL
The entire first three Star Wars prequels (Phantom Menace, Attack of the Clones, and Revenge of the Sith)...
I haven't heard about a film sequel, but I know that back in November (or was it October) the second volume of the Labyrinth Manga came out really connecting the film and the manga much more solidly than the first volume. The second volume leaves with a MASSIVE cliffhanger. If you guys are Labyrinth fans, you seriously have to get a hold of these mangas that the Jim Henson company is bringing out. I'm going to grab them up myself. Support, support, support!
Return toLabyrinth III
Has anyone heard any rumors on when the 3rd Manga book is schedule for release?
Well, supposedly for the summer of 2008. If it comes out before it'll be a pleasant surprised, but according to the author's note in the back of the volume 2, that is their target date.
Makes me so unhappy. I desire more.
You know, I'd love a decent sequel, but I doubt we'll get it. First off, the sequel would need to involve the original actors.
While I can't speculate for David Bowie, Jennifer Connelly had made her own choice in acting. She's done a lot of nudity , and not just a little peek either. I'm just not sure that even if she did agree to a sequel, she could recapture her role as Sarah. I'm not saying she doesn't have the talent to do it, it's just that Sarah's character might be harder for her to recapture, now that she's older and had developed her own style.
I don't see how nudity / sex / drugs would in anyway affect her ability to recapture the spirit of Sarah. She's an actress, this is what she does for a living. That wasn't Jennifer Connelly in Labyrinth, that was Sarah, same goes for Requiem For A Dream (which is what I assume you are referring to).
If you have issues with Jennifer's choice in roles, I highly suggest you don't dig into Bowie closet, especially considering he had years and years of career before Labyrinth ever came along with plenty of music and filming material you may not agree with, but yet, he did just fine as Jareth and everyone here loves him.
Also, have you seen Phenomena (1985) aka Creepers (USA) by Dario Argento, one of the masters of horror and thriller exploitation filming? It is a very graphic horror film in which Jennifer starred in before Labyrinth, I don't think you would like the film if you were to try and compare it to Labyrinth, but it just goes to show you, that even at a young age, she was very versatile in her acting ability.
The post was just my opinion. And I really don't appreciate you're telling me what I may and may not like. If you feel you know my tastes based on this one post, that's fine. All I said that since she's changed so much as an actress, it might be hard for her to recapture her role as Sarah, but I would love to see her again in that role. My comments on her nudity are just my opinion, that's all.
And I have see her in other roles. I do agree that she's a good actress, and that she can give depth to her characters. She was so good in "A Beautiful Mind" . It's like some roles are just written for her, and you can't picture anyone else playing them.
And I know all about Bowie, but anyone can live their life the way that they want. Each person's happiness is up to themselves. Anyway, I've seen a few things of his, and he's beyond talented. If I could play half as many musical instruments as he can, I'd be thrilled.
Maybe you shouldn't make judgements about a person until you know them. Have a nice day.
Dude, lighten up, not making judgments on you, it's just a message board, no reason to take things personally.
Okay. Sorry if I seemed rude.
No worries, it's fine, just wanted to make sure you didn't think I was attacking your character, just posting my opinions
BTW, what do you think of the Manga sequel books? Personally the first one was a bit weak, I haven't finished the second one yet...a little "kiddie" though, not sure about them....
I'd like to know where they are trying to take the story. Maybe a little more background, like where did the Queen of Cups come from? That's a Tarot card. So far the only thing that's really a sequel to the movie are the original charaters. Why is Jareth required to give up the throne after 1300 years? Why was his hand burned in the first book? It just seems to me that they are creating more questions than answers.
I wasn't to happy with the art for the first volume. Sarah didn't even look like Sarah! But, I liked the art for the secound one.
The plot is interesting. I'm hopting to see Sarah smack the Queen of Cups for the stuff she's doing. If I had my way, I'd just sic Animal on her and sit back and watch the fun.
It can be a bit kiddie, but to me, that's part of the story, like with the Bog of Eternal Stench and How Sarah first saw Hoggle. When I first saw the movie, that shocked me.
