Ryan Gosling as Walt Disney!
Just kidding. But this poster isn’t…
Upon seeing this on Facebook, I myself had to immediately Google it. Ryan Gosling playing young Walt Disney, directed by Ron Howard! Ah, too good to be true!
Alas, it is just a joke. But one that could spark talks to turn this dream into a reality…
5 Sequels That Should Be Non-Existent
These movies are somehow being made and it’s somewhat depressing. One question….WHY?
1. G.I. Joe: Retaliation
With a brand new cast featuring Dwayne Johnson and Bruce Willis. Eh. Stephen Sommers should stick to The Mummy, thanks.
2. Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Dog Days
One of those franchises you are only aware of if you have a child. The first one made $22 mill, hence the greenlight for a sequel. Wonder what “Dog Days” has to do with? Apparently something with ice cream.
3. Silent Hill: Revelation 3D
Wow. The first came out in 2006 so why the need for a remake? No clue. But it does star Game of Thrones man, Kit Harrington aka Jon Snow so that’s intriguing.
4. Percy Jackson & The Olympians: Sea of Monsters
Umm I don’t even recall the first, but upon further research have discovered it was directed by Chris Columbus and starred Pierce Brosnan. This one will star Missi Pyle (The Artist) and Mary Birdsong (Reno 911). Interesting cast.
5. Grown Ups 2
Man Grown Ups the original is a solid 10% on Rotten. Why do Sony execs feel the need to re-create this Adam Sandler fart joke comedy? Revenue. Grown Ups made $260 million worldwide. That was Sandler’s highest grossing film. I’m assuming it’s because ticket prices have inflated.
The film and music festival (March 9-18) will be getting lighter laugh fare today. That’s right, Will Ferrell’s new comedy Casa de mi Padre premieres in Austin, Texas tonight and while it’s not highly-regarded among top critics, I have high hopes for the film that co-stars Diego Luna and Gael Garcia Bernal – both from Y Tu Mama Tambien – so there’s some Mexican authenticity in there. Hope they serve up some authentic Texas tacos with the screening.
