Some Movies Are So Worried About Setting Up a Sequel They Forget to be Good

Don t look so sad, a Warcraft sequel may still happen.

That s what happened this summer with Duncan Jones Warcraft.

The problem is the first film is so busy setting up the world, explaining the history, and preparing for these future stories that the story in the movie we re watching isn t particularly interesting.

Release the movie and, if it s a hit and audiences want a sequel, then you figure the rest out.

Very rarely does a great one start as a self-aware entity.

If the makers of that film just looked more at James Cameron s originals, maybe there d still be Terminator movies coming out.
