Ain't It Cool News (
Movie News


Merrick here...
At ShoWest, Warner president Alan Horn confirmed the coming of another FINAL DESTINATION film. While the title of the last entry in the series...THE FINAL DESTINATION...kinda/sorta implied the franchise had actually reached its final destination, the movie pulled down north of $180 million globally - thus more death -vs- beautiful young people hilarity quickly became assured. Let us pause for a moment to reflect up the morbid mayhem thus far...
More details as more become available.

    by NinjaRap

    Because this would clearly be the FIFTH Final Destination film, something that the writer obviously knew since he posted FOUR TRAILERS FOR THE EXISTING ONES. So I want to know why he wrote "Final Destination 4" in the headline.

    The 4th film should be in 4-D

    by seagrass

    The audience could be splattered with real shit following each death - after all, you void your bowels when you die. It could also serve as an all-too-literal metaphor, since the last two Final Destination films really shit in the viewers' faces.

    by D o o d

    I mean even the first one was total horse shit but they got money to make another and another. The whole concept is just pure crap and the way these movies are made is crap. I've never seen a more clear example of making a movie just for the sake of Money! No Story, No Ambition, No Point!

    by Royston Lodge

    On the one hand, this movie will be a train wreck, so why not centre the plot around a train wreck?<p> On the other hand, I don't think a really gory train wreck has even been shown on the big screen. There are movies which include train wrecks (like Unbreakable or The Fugitive), but I don't think a train wreck has been filmed in all it's glorious blood and horror.

Total garbage.</p><p>I like the 4th one. Not as good characters or suspense, and the deaths were a bit cheesy, but it was good fun, especially in 3D.</p><p>I'm totally down for another one and I hope they keep 3D a part of the recipe.

    by Seth Gecko

    First two films were awesome and actually scary in parts. The other two are just rubbish. An exercise in cut and paste film making. I believe the screenwriters actually just think a whole heap of death scenes and then fit the dialouge to the plot. What is astounding is the spec script for the original for this was rejected by Chris Carter as an X-Files episode. Says a lot.

    3D = CGI Blood = No Thanks...

    by Mr. Profit

    The gore effects in the last one were weak. Even 3 had some interesting deaths. But 4 was weak. The flying tire decapitation was the closest thing to being good. Because they sold the fuck out with that cutaway pool drain death. I think the CGI deaths in 4 took away from the movie. In 2 when the glass pane crushes the kid and he explodes and it looks like ground beef was some crazy shit. But it's not like they are even trying anymore. A rock through the eye? Come on. If they are making 5, they need to have a strong opening disaster. Elaborate deaths that shock. And finally a satisfying finale. One more thing, 77 minutes for a movie is bullshit, especially if you are charging 14 bucks a ticket for 3D...

    The sad thing about this...

    by fassbinder79

    ...Is the 4th film was truly one of the worst pieces of shit I've ever seen. And I had high hopes since 2 was such a great guilty pleasure. If the studio were smart they'd hire Brian DePalma for this. If the rumors were true that he had been considered for PA2 then I think it wouldn't be much of a stretch for him to direct this. The beauty of DePalma in my opinion is he knows how direct setpieces!

    I look forward to this. I'm a fan of the series. But I'll be honest the last one was the weakest of the lot. What I hope is that number five will be more like the ride that was #2. I like that idea, the next film about a train wreck. And YES, Royston Lodge, better characters. The last one felt kinda generic.

    Why the 3-D complaints?

    by Adelai Niska

    Final Destination 3 and 4 were both 3D, and the third one was 3D back before this trend really hit. 3D-ing the next one isn't bandwagon jumping, it's consistency. Hopefully they do a better job than the last one.

    The great contribution of the FD Films

    by cookylamoo

    Is bringing CGI technology into the Gore film genre. Before FD, we had to content ourselves with blood packs, prop machetes, and exploding dummies. Someday the CGI will even be good CGI.

    Maybe it should be in 4D!

    by JayLenoTookMyJob

    Anyway... never even bothered to see the last one. Did that floppy car wash brush actually grind that chick's face off like it looked like it was going to do in the trailer? I was expecting maybe the brush would only sting a little, she'd come out of the car wash relatively unscathed... then a piano being transported in a C140 for some relocating General would accidentally fall out of the back hatch after it opened due to a bad circuit on the plane and land on the chick's head, crushing her and her car to street pizza. Of course, if I was directing these things, they'd be total slapstick comedies.

    Must have a scene where:

    by JayLenoTookMyJob

    A kid gets trapped in an old refrigerator. Old fridge gets loaded on junk dealer's truck and driven to Army base in desert. Fridge gets sold to Army Colonel, then loaded on Army truck and taken to fake town out in desert and placed in fake house. Seems the Army is doing a taste on new range of underground nuclear devices and how they'd affect populated areas above. Suddenly, an earthquake! Fridge falls into crevice and rolls down, down, only to wind up in smae chamber as nuclear device, which is counting down to zero! BOOM! Fridge flies out of underground chamber, rocketing in the stratosphere. 40 minutes later at end of film, the survivors gather to celebrate escaping Death. We hear offscreen a faint, but growing louder "eeeeeeEEEE" sound. Nuked fridge lands on survivors, smashing them to CGI hamburger, fridge door opens and flash-fried corpse falls out. Burnt corpse and kidburger spell out "The End" on pavement.
