FOUR SEQUELS THAT COULDN'T: A CAUTIONARY TALE
Interesting
Another weekend has come and gone and another disappointing sequel has crashed and burned. Sin City: A Dame To Kill For had high expectations from fans and from box office forecasters. It was a bust on both fronts. The ingredients of what made the first film entertaining were there, but it didn't fly this time.

More frustrating than a lazy soulless sequel to a great movie (think Ghostbusters 2) is a second installment that has all the potential to be a good movie but, alas, the makers over-thought the story. A great continuation was sitting right there but they messed it up by making it needlessly complicated.

Four films come to mind as lost opportunities. Spoilers ahead for old films.

Interesting
Cinemas charge a flat rate for all films regardless of whether or not the film is a small independent or a massive studio production. Is this fair? @craigisonfire_ discusses whether it's time cinema chains priced their films by appeal.

Featured in: The Dark Knight Rises
A very large fight scene featuring the Gotham City Police Department was filmed at the Mellon Institute of Industrial Research on the campus of Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh, PA. The context of this scene most likely will not be known until the film is released in July 2012.
