Donnie Darko 2. No, seriously.
In all the world of “why?” this has to be a winner.
Definitely making the top 5 of films that neither lend themselves to a sequel nor should one ever be attempted is the fantastic Donnie Darko. 8 years later someone somewhere thought defiling a classic to make some money was a good idea, coming up with the clunkily titled S.Darko (after completely forgettable little sis Samantha). But the original is such an underground hit, is there even money to squeeze?
The trailer suggests that they’re aiming to make a new teen thriller, which is right at the other end of the scale to what the original is aiming for. *sigh* When will they learn?
Please don’t let the tackiness of this put you off seeing the awesome Donnie Darko.
P.S. I promise that soon a post is coming about trailers I’ve seen that don’t make me want to cry.
