Merrick here...

This trailer has been disappearing from (and re-appearing on) The Net all day, so who knows how long this particular embed will last?  However, for the moment, BELOW you'll find the trailer for FINAL DESTINATION 5 via CinemaBlend.  

Say what you will about having to deal with another installment in this franchise, but any movie or TV show that has Tony Todd in it can't be all bad, can it?

    There are photos out from the new Spider-man movie. Coverage?

    Superhero Hype just kicks you guys' ass when it comes to this stuff, don't they?

    Tony Todd is the man

    by BackwardGalaxy

    Tony Todd is great, which is why it is so sad to see him relegated to this crap.

  • May 9, 2011, 2:18 p.m. CST

    Does anyone even follow these Final Destination movies anymore?

    by Huey_Freemans_afro

    Say what you will about the Saw movies, but at least they tried to string you along with a continuous story/mystery. The Final Destination movies should've gone straight to video after the first one.

  • It's like he pops in for a cameo, says something ominous, cashes his paycheck and they market his appearance like he's the main villian. Or maybe an observer like the Cryptkeeper? I dunno.

  • May 9, 2011, 2:25 p.m. CST

    Uh...who the hell is Tony Todd?

    Enduring that horrible Great America commercial.

    by Huey_Freemans_afro

    Let me just say that whoever commissioned that terrible fucking song in that commercial should suffer a Final Destination-style death. Which movie had the fucked up rollercoaster? Put them in that one.

    Final Five

    by MamboMan

    oh yes

  • May 9, 2011, 2:31 p.m. CST

    And what happened to the last one being THE FINAL Destination?

    by Huey_Freemans_afro

    Did it really do well enough to warrant another one? The title "The Final Destination" implied it would be the last. It would've been as close as they could get to bowing at gracefully and now they've ruined what little dignity that would've brought.

  • May 9, 2011, 2:31 p.m. CST

    Tony Todd is Death.

    by Volllllume3

    At least, that's what I think they're going for.

  • You're actually starting to impress me at this point. It's like watching Jersey Shore.

    Utter Gash

    by donkey_lasher

    The plot is the same. 1. Boy/girl has premonition about death and saves him/her and friends. 2. One by one they all die in ever more gruesome ways. 3. There's a twist at the end. Seriously, if you're going to end a franchise, please do it, but don't stick a Final Chapter-type title on it just to get a few extra asses in the cinema.

    SierraTango: You are a racist. Nothing you say has any credibility.

    by Huey_Freemans_afro

    And your use of the NATO phonetic alphabet in your name makes the military look bad. Your name implies you're a military guy, or at least a military enthusiast. But everything you say implies you're a stupid, racist redneck. That's actually more offensive.

  • May 9, 2011, 3:48 p.m. CST

    Redneck? That's a racist term, Huey's_High_AIDs_Rate

    Actually, it's not. But you would have to read to understand that.

    by Huey_Freemans_afro

    And if you were literate, I probably wouldn't be having a message board argument with a moron, which I'm not going to continue. So go ahead and have the last word, which I'm sure will proudly display your bigotry. And go back to contributing nothing of merit to the talkbacks and complaining about minorities on the internet (where it's safe). Or whatever you people do. And by "you people", I of course mean trolls.

    Go ahead and run away though.

  • May 9, 2011, 5:11 p.m. CST



    Please stop making these now. My soul hurts.

  • May 9, 2011, 5:12 p.m. CST


    by lecter1914

    A fan of half of them. I liked the first and second and hated the third and the 4th was so so....But I must say, it looks like they are investing more and more money into these things. This one looks like a million bucks.

  • May 9, 2011, 5:37 p.m. CST

    i thought they advertised the last one as THE final destination????

    by Billy_D_Williams

    people who pay for this shit have only themselves to blame for the sorry state of cinema...these producers mock and laught at you monkeys as they wipe their asses with the hundred dollar bills you so eagerly bestow upon them.

    First two were cool, third and fourth not so much.

    by David Cloverfield

    I'm still digging the concept though. I'm scared of freak accidents a lot more than I'm scared of masked maniacs. I hope they change up the formula here. They've been basically remaking the first film for a while now. I hope Todd plays more than "Death's accidental mouth piece" Go into the mythology. Why are kids getting these visions in the first place?

    by topaz4206

    Pre-roll ads should be < 10 secs. Then the damn trailer didn't even play. Shoot me.

  • May 9, 2011, 6:34 p.m. CST

    This isn't a sequel, it's a remake.


    All these final Destination movies are just remakes of the original, it's creative bankruptcy of the highest order.

    Nothing wrong with dumb fun

    But I do hate it when I sit though the ads only to find that the embed is down

    by LastStop2006

    You need to just laugh it all off dude because you are forgetting one simply fact about the people who complain about so called "Minorities"on the internet is they are actually the "Minorities" on this planet and people of color from various races around this blue globe make up the Majority. The joke is on them!!!! lol And with interracial blending becoming more and more common (me being of bi-racial race myself)especially here in the US they will really be the MInority! That term was labeled on people of color is just a sad Jedi Mind trick to make them feel insignificant.

  • May 9, 2011, 7:24 p.m. CST

  • May 9, 2011, 8:03 p.m. CST

    i actually like this franchise.

    by jules windex

    It seems to be really good with every other entry. 1&3 were really good, 2&4 just ok. And if this one features not just Tony Todd, but also the gruesome death of that big-eyebrow-having pain in the ass who ruined Heroes then I'm all in.

  • May 9, 2011, 8:10 p.m. CST

    Braindrain, I liked 4 of 5 FF movies and 2 of 4 FDs

    by Adelai Niska

    So I got no problem with more stupid-but-entertaining movies coming out.

  • May 9, 2011, 8:10 p.m. CST

    Holy fucking shit.

    by Darkman

    This actually looks not bad. <br><br> They CGI'd the fuck out of 3 and 4, sapping away the enjoyment. This one looks like they've learned their lesson (though the bridge collapse looks impressive). <br><br> David Koechner must have a thing for tongue-in-cheek horror, given this, PIRANHA 3DD and (to a lesser extent) SNAKES ON A PLANE.

  • May 9, 2011, 8:45 p.m. CST

    Well as long theres still gruesome deaths...

    by Brandon

    I'll be happy to watch it.

    Why do some horror movies get one theatrical sequel after another...

    by Nasty In The Pasty

    ...while another franchise goes direct-to-Redbox after the first theatrical installment? I saw the first Final Destination, was not terribly impressed, and have had no desire to see any of the others (kind of like Saw, The Fast & The Furious, ect.), and yet they just keep cranking this shit out year after year. I know horror movies tend to be pretty cheap, but why does, say, Saw get SIX sequels, all released to theaters, while a movie like, say, The Descent get one direct-to-DVD sequel and nothing else?

    Um, DTV

    by mayorofsmpleton

  • May 10, 2011, 6:34 a.m. CST

    Here's why not...

    by mayorofsmpleton

    Final Destination - 112m Final Destination 2 - 90.4m Final Destination 3 - 117m The Final Destination - 186m Final Destination 5 - *100-150 worldwide gross, easy. That's why it's not going DTV. Not yet. The Descent was one of the best horror films of the last several years. It also didn't light the box office on fire. The sequel blew chunks and Lions Gate knew what a mistake it would be to put that crap in theaters. And I don't recall the last being billed as the "final film." The title "The Final Destination" would imply simply what the first movie's title did... if it was meant to signify the last entry of the franchise it would have titled "The Final Final Destination." They also wanted to push the 3D angle and didn't want "Final Destination 4 - 3D!" "The Final Destination - 3D" sounds less cheesy. The latest SAW entry was titled Saw - 3D. Retitled "The final Chapter" for home video. New Line just didn't want the number 4 on there to distract the audience from an aging franchise. Much like Universal's "Fast and Furious" (no 'the's' huh?) and Fast Five. It keeps each title from feeling like "just another sequel" to the public. Apparently it works well. I'm kind of digging the trailer. 1 was great. 2 was too campy and a let down. 3 was a return to form with more likable protagonists but still not as strong as the first. 4 blew big chunks. I could hardly tell the lead's apart... they were the most generic 20-somethings I have ever seen. The newest entry seems to abandon a lot of the format of the early films in that they are playing with the "rules" concept. Up until now we've essentially been shown that in all 4 films, nobody can "cheat" death. Yet they get messages repeatedly. Where are the messaging coming from... if you can't "cheat" death what is the point of the message? Etc. This movie seems like it's going to delve into the mythology of the franchise... something that should have been happening with number 2. Part 3 worked well incorporation the "photograph" elements but like 2 and 4 it doesn't really go anywhere with it. Each film ends pretty much the same. People just trying not to die. I'd love if 5 really does plan to be something different... the characters being much more proactive about what is happening to them. Either way, that bridge scene looks awesome and easily the most "epic" in terms of disaster scale they've played with. "The Final Destination - 3D" left a stale taste in my mouth. Still, different people on this film so I will probably still see it.

    Looks way better than the last one.

    by Royston Lodge

    Instead of going with big, blockbuster kills like the roller coaster or the NASCAR track, they seem to be returning to the primal creepiness of small, everyday dangers. The laser surgery one is an awesome idea, but I really LOVE the itty-bitty screw on the balance beam. So small. So innocent-looking. Not really what you'd expect from a horror movie. But I bet she breaks her neck (or is even decapitated) in a really revolting way once she steps on it. Heh heh heh... I gotta admit, I'm tempted to go see this thing.
