Christopher Nolan Asks: Are There Any Good Third Movies?

October 27, 2008
Source: LA Times

Christopher Nolan

Don't get too excited, because he still doesn't have any idea what the next story will be about. Geoff Boucher of the LA Times caught up with Christopher Nolan after his return from a much-needed vacation with his family. Like Kevin Smith, listening to Nolan talk about filmmaking is exhilarating on its own, which is why I'm at least pointing those who are interested in the right direction (read the full interview here). Nolan really doesn't say too much regarding where he's headed next or what they'll do after Batman Begins and The Dark Knight, but he does say some very interesting things which are worth mentioning.

Nolan and Boucher cover numerous subjects, including how challenging it is to grasp the fact that his movie has made nearly $1 billion and that he got a thrill out of "shooting on IMAX and creating that massive scale and achieving that larger-than-life quality." But one of the most interesting things he mentions comes at the very end and, of course, surrounds the question of where they might go next.

"Well … let me think how to put this. There are two things to be said. One is the emphasis on story. What's the story? Is there a story that's going to keep me emotionally invested for the couple of years that it will take to make another one? That's the overriding question. On a more superficial level, I have to ask the question: How many good third movies in a franchise can people name? [Laughs.] At the same time, in taking on the second one, we had the challenge of trying to make a great second movie, and there haven't been too many of those either. It's all about the story really. If the story is there, everything is possible. I hope that was a suitably slippery answer."

That was indeed a suitably slippery answer that will hopefully be enough to hold over fans for a while. Or at least spark a debate for months to come until Christopher Nolan and writers Jonathan Nolan and David S. Goyer figure out a suitable story. I know that another sequel is inevitable, but it's nearly pointless to continue drilling Nolan for details when they haven't even thought about it yet. But since we've got three years to go, let's focus on a different topic. I want to address that question that Nolan himself asked above and see if anyone has an answer. How many good third movies in a franchise can people name?

If anyone can make a great third movie, it'll be Nolan.

The Bourne Ultimatum, best in the series.

Robert Kuykendall on Oct 27, 2008


Indiana Jones 3. It's almost as good as Raiders. Otherwise...not much.

DinoChow on Oct 27, 2008



Maddie on Oct 27, 2008


Goldfinger doesn't count... That's not really a third... At least I wouldn't count it as one. Because how often do you say the 21st movie (e.g. Casino Royale) was one of the best in a 22+ movie franchise? Bond is something entirely on its own...

Alex Billington on Oct 27, 2008


The Return of the King, Lord of the Rings was the BEST movie ever from that trilogy... the word OSCAR ring a bell to anyone?

FAT on Oct 27, 2008


Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade, Star Wars: Episode VI.

Kevin on Oct 27, 2008


Assuming that the first trilogy and the second trilogy are considered different movies.

Kevin on Oct 27, 2008


I meant considered separately; these forums really need an edit button. Altogether: Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade, Star Wars: Episode VI. Assuming that the first trilogy and second trilogy are considered separately. Also, Episode III looked brilliant next to Episodes I and II. But that's not exactly what's being asked.

Kevin on Oct 27, 2008


Hmmm Lets See.. Return of the Jedi... Army of Darkness... Indiana Jones and The Last Crusade... The Godfather: Part III... The Bourne Ultimatum...(thanks to comment #2) The Return of the King... Back to the Future: Part III... Just to name a few... I know I didn't put Harry Potter, The Matrix, Pirates, Die Hard, X-Men, but the the next few comments might help build some momentum for more feedback. Thanks First Showing!

Ryan McCarthy on Oct 27, 2008


I don't think LOTR:ROTK counts as it was filmed together with the other two and LOTR was writting as one story (later divided into a trilogy at the request of the publishers.) LOTR is really one movie divided into three.

Bryan on Oct 27, 2008


hey what about ninja turtles 3? could they maybe make watchmen into 3 movies, that would be good. I have never read it but i like how they are a superhero team, it reminds me of heroes or something. does anyone know if watchman is in the trailer or not? i havnt seen him yet i dont think

poops on Oct 27, 2008


Its such a tricky question. When he asked how many good second films are there, people made lists of about a dozen sequels they thought matched up. But even for those films, if they made another sequel after that, it never seems to fit. After Godfather Part II, which was amazing, Godfather Part III just doesnt fit the epic feel as the others. Its a good movie, but not one of the best third films made. The list dwindles substantially after the second sequel. The only ones that work are the ones that are made for pure passion of the storyline instead of passion for the cash it will rake in. You get that feel from The Bourne Ultimatum, Return of the Jedi, The Last Crusade and Return of the King, that storyline is more important than anything. As far as sequels go, the storyline of TDK demands that it was made for storyline, so I have no doubt that if Chris Nolan is involved it will work.

Travis on Oct 27, 2008


before anyone says anything, it's pretty obvious poops was joking. I personally think there are several franchises which had weak second movies and stronger third movies: Die Hard (thought the 4th was even better) Indiana Jones Star Wars (the new trilogy) Pirates of the Caribbean (I personally liked the 3rd best, most people don't) But there's also plenty of movies whose sequels and threequels (?) both suck. The third film can be done, but it's hard.

scm1000 on Oct 27, 2008


Who seriously thinks that godfather 3 is a good movie? come on now......and as far as die hard 3 it's alright i'll watch it on occasion but it's nothing that was really badass i mean you might as well put in jurassic park 3 up there if your gonna mention that....there's other that are alright Blade trinity pirates of the caribbean: at worlds end resident evil....which i thought was a lot better then 2 once upon a time in mexico is alright you could even throw in shrek 3 it's all in a matter of opinion this besides all the others that were previously mentioned

McGangster on Oct 27, 2008


Some already said it, but Army Of Darkness was one of the absolute best movies ever made. The Last Crusade, PotC3, Die Hard 3 (the 4th sucked pg13 garbage), and RotK are other great 3rd movies. Anyone who said Godfather 3 was a good movie needs to be banned from movies for life. The whole incest story line... WTF? Even creepier since it was his daughter playing the daughter. It actually ruined the Godfather story line for me because unfortunately I saw it first. I have to say that since the current trend in movies is safety, I think sequels and continuations maybe more and more common. If you think about it there are very rarely new ideas being made. It is either sequels, remakes, rehashings, or (the new big thing especially with superheroes) conversions. Hell the most anticipated movies of the year (IMHO) are all either remakes (the day the earth stood still) or movies of story that are already successful in other media (The Watchmen and Harry Potter). There will be a third "Grittier" Batman movie, I guarantee it. Let's just hope Nolan is at its helm.

Stevo on Oct 27, 2008


Hey 5, Goldfinger may not count, but Goldmember surely does and it was the best of that series.

Stevo on Oct 27, 2008


Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban is my favorite Potter film; the cinematoraphy is amazing!

terces7 on Oct 27, 2008


The Last Crusade and The Bourne Ultimatum are at the top of my list.

Matt on Oct 27, 2008


I think the true answer will look how many sequels were better then the original, normally I would demand another one, but after the constant disappointment in the third (Spiderman 3, Pirates of the Carribean 3, Sherk 3, Scary movie 3, Matrix, X-men) Now there are a few Trilogies I actually liked, The Lord of the Rings (I found to be the best one, but like someone said they are a constant story), Saw (I liked 1 better but 3 was far better then 2) , Bourne ( bored out of my mind with the first two, but was watchable.)

Jaws 3D Okay, just kidding. I have to agree with a few of the other suggestions: Return Of The Jedi Indiana Jones And The Last Crusade Die Hard With A Vengeance LOTR: The Return Of The King And, I'd like to add one of my own: The Good, The Bad, And The Ugly -- Definitely the best of Sergio Leone's Man With No Name Trilogy.

Jedi on Oct 27, 2008


Return of the jedi Revenge of the sith Rambo 3 Rocky 3 National Lampoons christmas vacation Police story 3: Supercop Pirates of the carribean: At worlds end Saw 3 Karate kid 3 Indianna Jones and the last crusade Army of darkness Lord of the rings: return of the king Alien 3

Cheers to "Prisoner of Azkaban" That movie was damn solid.

Voice of Reason on Oct 28, 2008


"Are There Any Good Third Movies?" Kieslowski´s Red was the third, and the best of the Three Colors trilogy. Not exactly fair to mention this one, but i thought of it anyway. Kill Batman, you´ll have a great third feature. Greetings.

Mario Tenorio on Oct 28, 2008


return of the jedi, the good the bad and the ugly, army of darkness, mother of tears, day of the dead, nightmare on elm street 3, xmen 3, return of the king, matrix revolutions, goldfinger, die hard 3, indiana jones and the last crusade, the ghost galleon, and many other good or great third movies that im too lazy to list. and i personally cant wait to see nolan's third batman.

adamsweet on Oct 28, 2008


Please stop naming Indiana 3 and Star Wars 6 . It's really not the case . Indiana Jones Raiders is the best , from the "1st trilogy" of SW , The Empire Strikes Back is the best of the 3 no doubts about it . I agree on LOTR 3 . ( and do not on those rambo rocky alien blabla ... best were the first ones naturally )

Andrei on Oct 28, 2008


Although its not a trilogy but good old Jack Ryan was good and i think it was "Clear and Present Danger" with H Ford in 1994 which is a damn fine movie that was the third installment using good old Tom Clancy.

werdnafaz on Oct 28, 2008


I agree with poops (#12) I think watchmen can be a good trilogy and I cant wait to see watchman in the watchmen movie it'll set him up as the main hero in the sequel

Kail on Oct 28, 2008


He have no story ? He think he can't make another Batman ? The story just begins ! Gotham want Batman dead . What the hell will be better than that ? I think Nolan just missing around 🙂

Kill the Batman on Oct 28, 2008


Chasing Amy. Third and Best of Kevin Smith's so-called 'Jersey Trilogy'.

John Madden on Oct 28, 2008


I don't know what Nolan's talking about. There have been plenty of good "third films" 1. Die Hard With A Vengeance 2. Lethal Weapon 3 3. Beverly Hills Cop 3 4. Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade 5. Scream 3 6. Alien 3 7. Back To The Future Park 3 8. Army Of Darkness 9. The Enforcer 10. Terminator 3 11. Christmas Vacation 12. Return of the Jedi 13. Revenge Of the Sith 14. Rocky 3 15. TMNT 3 16. Tremors 3: Back to Perfection 17. Bourne Ultimatum 18. Karate Kid 3 19. D3: The Mighty Ducks 20. Honey We Shrunk Ourselves I'm sure there's more but this is the best I've got. And I'm not saying that any of these are better than their predecessors, but they are films that I find to be good.

Charlie on Oct 28, 2008


Not to be argumentative Alex, but when Goldfinger was made, they had no idea that the franchise would go an additional 18+ movies. At the time, it was just the third of a very successful movie franchise, so I would say it definitely counts. I do agree that the Bond films evolved into a completely different animal further down the road.

Shane on Oct 28, 2008


TMNT 3 was NOT a good movie...

Dan on Oct 28, 2008


#34 Aliens(2) was a much better movie than Alien 3, and Terminator 3 totally screwed up the entire Terminator storyline. T2 is far superior to T3. One can tell that I love Cameron as a director.

Matt Suhu on Oct 28, 2008


See I do believe he said name off good movies. None of these third sequels you all are naming are any good. The only ones are star wars and Indiana Jones. I agree with LOTR being one entire movie so I won't say ROTK. I personally think everyone should give batman a rest. The impact TDK has made on the industry still hasn't been set in stone. I personally think no sequel is going to top the TDK, It's a movie that comes around once every 10 years. Let's not get all hyped up for a movie that maybe won't even come out for the next 3-5 years and just enjoy the masterpiece that nolan has already given us.

Curtis G on Oct 28, 2008


anyone saying that jedi was a good movie needs to be shot lol... are you on drugs? The idea that an empire that conquered the whole galaxy can be toppled by a group of teddy bears is so outrageous i cant even laugh at it.

9mm on Oct 28, 2008


@FAT Your comment about part 3 of the LOTR trilogy being the best because it got OSCARS doesn't mean shit. I wish people would get over this 'when a movie gets an oscar it's a good movie' thought. Oscar's don't mean shit. Why? Because the remake of the Thing in 1972 didn't get the oscars for best Art Direction. That being said, the Godfather part III isn't as bad as people (myself included) remembered it. Part III is a perfect example of: ''if the story is there, everything is possible.''

Neal on Oct 28, 2008


I a little surprised at some of the movies that people are listing (especially the third blade movie... but maybe I should give it a second chance?) but there is also lots of good stuff that people listed (Army Of Darkness, Radiers of the lost Arc, Return of the Jedi, Bourne Ultimatum, and The Good the Bad and the Ugly, are some of my favorite movies ever)... so where does the 'crappy third movie' perception come from?

Staatz on Oct 28, 2008


I cannot believe the utter crap some of you guys are listing. I think the marketing machine really has done it's job when "Blade: Trinity", "Godfather III", and "Return of the Jedi", and "Last Crusade" are on here. Disregarding "Blade:Trinity" as the not-worth mentioning crap that it was, I'm pretty sure Christopher Nolan was referring to the latter trilogies when he was talking about crap third movies. All of those third movies are total crap. I know there are a lot of die-hard Star Wars fans out there, but regardless of the great character arcs that get resolved in Return of the Jedi, the return of the Death Star and cute-cuddly little furry children are reasons to feel totally dissapointed in this film. It's no where near as edgy and inventive as "Empire" and feels too placacting to what the hardcore fans and children want, much in the same vein as "Phantom Menace". "Last Crusade" commits similar horrible acts and succeeds also in similar ways. Having great character arcs but comparatively to the first film, it was made with children and grandparents in mind having little comparative in the way of violence or thrilling edge of your seat moments like "Raiders" truck chase fight. And don't get me started on "Godfather III", that film is such irredeemable shite I hope you were joking. That being said, I'm almost certain Nolan was referring to this unholy trinity of Franchise disappointments when he was talking about horrible third parts. "The Dark Knight" was wonderful in that it reinvented the franchise without completely leaving it behind. It wasn't "Empire Strikes Back", because it left the tone and atmosphere and the fictional nature of "Begins" behind. It had no fantasy city and was grounded largely in things that could and do exist. It had an entirely separate narrative, connected only by a playing card from "Begins". Here are the only decent Third Parts to a trilogy that I can think of off the top of my head that blew me away and upped the ante successfully from the previous two-parts. The Bourne Ultimatum was a wonderful end cap to a trilogy of spy-fiction that upped the ante from the original two films while at the same time improving the narrative and pace to almost unreal levels. The characters were great and not ponderous like the second film and the cinematography wonderfully evolved as did the editing and overall design of the film. Thus it was awarded by the Academy. A truly great film. "Lord of the Rings: Return of the King", is a third film to a trilogy. I don't know what kind of Troglodite it takes to say this isn't a third film but really part three of one film. Just please, stop. This trilogy may have been filmed all at once, but it evolved editorially over the three pictures and each part represented successive themes as well. You can't judge it as one just because Tolkien thought the book as one whole, this isn't the book. It is a film and takes liberties with the original narrative in almost every way. That being said, the third act really paid off on all of the character arcs and upped that ante action and drama-wise without leaving any stone unturned. It was wonderful and dealt with wonderful themes and while a bit long, it did so while leaving no fan or audience member unsatisfied. It was a fitting conclusion to a trilogy. These are two examples of classic film trilogies, films that got everything right. I truly believe Christopher Nolan to be a master filmmaker. If he doesn't believe he can make a proper part III to his Batman franchise I say he shouldn't make one(I'm sure he won't if he can't). My only wish is that he take his cast and crew with him. I would hate seeing a Part III of this trilogy knowing that he wasn't involved. I feel like he is extremely intelligent and a truly gifted storyteller. My sincere hope is that he can create the trilogy ending of all trilogy endings. Batman has such a large universe to explore and he really opened that wide in "Dark Knight". I can't wait to see what he is able to come up with.

Lincoln on Oct 28, 2008


The reason that nolan keeps on responding in slippery answers is because he is trying to create a riddle to incorporate The Riddler into the next Film! Play on Play haha

E-Nigma on Oct 28, 2008



THERBLIG on Oct 28, 2008


man i told you guys it wasnt a GIVEN that there would be a third film - he's considering it, everyone here was acting like it was a definite.

Tim on Oct 28, 2008


Mission Impossible 3 is the best of the franchise. Many other good third films are mentioned above.

vic on Oct 28, 2008


I do find it slightly unnerving that they made such an ass-kicking sequel and seemingly made no plans for a follow up. This is Batman for crissakes. At this point, there's gotta be someone somewhere already drawing up a list of possible writer/directors to deliver some kind of film in the next 4 or 5 years. They could tie 2012 into it, and make a movie of the last halloween- a post apocalyptic gotham city. It would be as scarily relevant as the last one was. He should just stop trying to second guess the public, and get started on another film, to clear his effing mind. Yes, you made a billion dollars. Now, make ANOTHER billion! ( I can say things like that b/c Chris and I go way back - heh)

Beetle on Oct 28, 2008


I can't believe people are mentioning Shrek 3 and TMNT 3. What terrible movies. But I'm of the belief that anything is possible, if you work at it. James bond has been consistently good and getting better. Anyone can do it. The british are just better at it than us.

Aldonn on Oct 28, 2008


I'm shocked that I haven't seen HSM 3 on anyone's list. That just opened huge last weekend. Maybe they should add singing and dancing to guarantee success. 😉 I agree with Nolan. I think it's hard to find a great third movie in a franchise. Considering how good Dark Knight was...will make coming up with a third one even more difficult.

janet on Oct 28, 2008


Return of the Jedi (Duh)

Victor on Oct 28, 2008


I can't believe someone listed Tremors 3. Your only helping Nolan make his point.

Lefthanded on Oct 28, 2008


LOL at those who with a straight face listed godfather part 3. just a horrible sequel. am i the only one who will never forget coppola's unforgivable nepotism and the atrocious acting resulting from that nepotism?

Tom on Oct 28, 2008


after all the hype has now dyed down i do believe the dark knight to be an average movie-ive seen it twice but didnt like it the 2nd time, nolans probably right in that the 3rd must be good and have a good story cos the dark knight he knew to be so so story wise. why not just leave it now and say bye bye-well done. move on and go do something else, as we all know there are plenty of great 3rd movies so the man is a confused i think.

bassbin on Oct 28, 2008


The thing is, most of these third movies (not all, but most) were planned from the get-go. The stories were mapped out from the beginning. So it is quite different (Ex. LOTR, Indiana Jones, Star Wars, Godfather(?))

Josh on Oct 28, 2008


ok Return of the Jedi is the best of any third installment to any movie trilogy ever in the history of movies, and whoever said anything about revenge of the sith being a third is a fuck ass. its a six part series and 4,5 and 6 are the first three no matter what order you think they go in, I even have a hard time counting the other three as star wars movies they are nothing like the originals and as far as Im concerned should not have been made. they only disgrace the name of star wars, and of the jedi. thank you number 10 I think you were the first to say return of the jedi. I think everyone else has mentioned any other movie worth being mentioned.

tyler on Oct 28, 2008


Return of the Jedi is most definately at the top, but you gotta keep in mind that Lucas knew that Star Wars was gonna be a trilogy, it wasn't just a sequel tacked on. So we'll have to see if they can pull it off with Nolan's Batman, it's hard to top that amount of money they made at the box office on Dark Knight.

Nick on Oct 28, 2008


Return of the jedi? fucking kidding empire defeated by Ewoks, come on. And i'm a big fan of Star Wars.

AL3X on Oct 28, 2008


how many BAD third movies are there tho? I can see that list being much much longer. for starters: Oceans 13 spiderman 3 xmen 3 mummy 3 shrek 3 matrix 3 (not bad, but i like the first 2 much more) Ace Ventura 3 (Jr. = Wtf?) honey i shrunk the kids 3 walking tall lone justice fast and furious tokyo drift american pie band camp (mind you this franchise shoulda stopped here, so probly not technically a trilogy) these are just a few that i think all involved would rather forget about. Maybe Chris Nolan is fearful that his 3rd movie could get thrown into this basket?

Matt on Oct 28, 2008


didnt dey have a story line base to work on, there was a competition few months bk. Quick story line in a few words... Bring back The Joker (played by...) now rotting in a high security jail. Along comes Riddler as a small time crook who wants to be paired with the most talked crimester 'Joker'. Eventually Riddler becomes the most havoc person in Gotham City and somehow frees Joker later on. Batman on the other hand, is hunted down by cops but must clear the road along the way. Having loads of twists and turns this would be the best third BATMAN movie in the franchise.

Fearl3ss on Oct 28, 2008


return of the jedi nuff said

ANTHONY on Oct 28, 2008


I would say stop at 2? why, well you cant make a movie better then The Dark NIGHT in my opnion... the movie was insanly good and stopping would be the best it... Or we can keep going every 4 years or every year like the saw movies... Saw One was great... saw 2 was ok and then after those it just became sad.. the people who went from movie 2 to 3 die in the first 5 min... same with 3 to 4.. anyways back to my point... I DONT THINK IT IS POSSIABLE TO MAKE A BETTER MOVIE THEN THE DARK NIGHT!! 🙂

Max Russian on Oct 28, 2008


Most of the people on this post really don't know what they're talking about ESPECIALLY NUMBER 12! I will agree with number 2 hands down. Bourne Ultimatum was the best of the series, without a doubt. But I must agree that LOTR is in fact a film trilogy and the third one was the very best - heck it even won for best picture! "Day of the Dead" was good. Back to the Future part 3 was OK, not very good I must say. The end was good, but that's it. Paul Verhoeven's "sci-fi" trilogy was ALL Good! But in Nolan's defense, I have to agree. Most third's in movies series are not very good. Look at Scream 3, that was the worst. Infernal Affairs 3, that sucked. So did Terminator 3, Godfather 3 (it was all right not terrible), the new Underworld movie looks like trash. Goldmember had a very good opening then it just sunk. Hannibal was awful (sure not really a trilogy, but it was the third in the movie series). Matrix Revolutions was the worst for certain. Saw 3 is when it started to chuck out as well.

Conrad on Oct 28, 2008


#23 Police Story was easily one of Jackie Chan's best movies, let alone the best of the Police Story series. Supercop was good but definitely not at the original's level.

Matt on Oct 28, 2008


Return of the jedi was decent, lets be real people, it doesn't touch Star Wars or Empire, therefore you can't use jedi as a means of stating it can happen...Nolan is trying to MAKE a third BETTER than the first two movies, not just make a good movie to end the series... Same goes for Crusade, a decent movie, but nowhere near as good as Raiders...there is no disputing this... My personal trilogy 3rd movies that actually are the BEST of the series: The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly - bar none, the absolute best of that series...not to mention has gone down as one of the best damn movies of all time...considered by many to be a cinematic masterpiece... The Bourne Ultimatum - Easily the best of the series, no question... That's it...remember we are talking big budget here, The Batman franchise can't be compared to the Army of Darkness(which was damn good), or say a Lady Vengeance(another great 3rd)...those movies don't have near the effect worldwide as a third Batman, or a third Matrix have... The potential for success is considerably less for Nolan, regardless if the movie itslef is good, simply because at the current level, it's almost impossible to make it happen... Honestly IMO, there has not been one single big budget trilogy that has gotten better with each movie, the closest IMO would have to be LOTR, and The Man with No Name(big budget overseas, not su much in the US). But even LOTR by most standards has the best at the 3rd movie, the 1st was the next, and 2nd was the 3rd best... Now personal opinions can vary, but the overall opinions that i've come across, is that LOTR was the closest to actually go from 1 thru 3, all being damn good, and all basically getting better...The only difference is, most people i've talked to about the LOTR series tend to like the 1st more than the 2nd... Spiderman 3 had the one chance to do what no one had basically done, and then it tanked, all the other Major Budget movies had already toppled: Matrix Aliens Terminator Indiana Jones Star Wars Pirates X-men All of those did not get better with succession...makes a reasonable question for Nolan, does he really want to try and top what at this point, looks like it can't be? I say go for it, it might not be as good as TDK, but if it's good period, then i for one will be satisfied...

Nicc on Oct 28, 2008


Terminator 3

David on Oct 29, 2008


1. Return of the King 2. Bourne Ultimatum 3. Harry Potter 3 And I'm talking in terms of 'thirds' being better then one and two. Terminator 3? Noup, Judgement Day Alien 3? Noup, Aliens Bttf 3? Still noup, One and Only and so on and so on... The thing is, Batman 3 won't be just that, the third movie in a franchise, it will be a standalone crime drama alongside Begins and TDK with much more Batcave, Darkness and, in the grand finale...Much more hope. Trust Nolan.

m4st4 on Oct 29, 2008


Are you kidding me ? Terminator 3 ????? Come on do you forget in what high level was Terminator 2 and I agree with Matt 64 3 Police Story was not good enough as the first one . I think that Nolan is not sure how the third one will be as good as the Dark Knight that is why he is trying to tell people from now : please forgive me if I make a mess this once. By the way are we speaking about a movie that still have no story ? 🙂 and it will take at least 3 years until it will come out ? why are we killing our time by this lets we speak about stuff that will come out after a month or two .

Kill th Batman on Oct 29, 2008


Grease 3: The Return of the Cool Rider, Michael Carrington and his Uzi's.

Chrisbo on Oct 29, 2008


please tell me that #12 is kidding, please. Watchmen is a great example of a movie where there could not be a Watchmen 2. I am hearing that there will be a DVD of the Tales of the Black Frieghter segments and Under the Hood documentary. Then when Watchmen comes to DVD the Tales of the Black Frieghter segments will go rightfully back into the movie in the Special Edition.

Tim on Oct 29, 2008


1. 'RED DRAGON (2003)' - from the 'Hannibal Lecter' Trilogy. One of the best movies on its own and one of the very rare Third Movies that are brilliant and intellectual. 2. 'SIGNS(2002)' is also an exceptionally good movie from the Manoj Shyamalan Trilogy, the prequels being the blockbluster masterpieces: 'Sixth Sense, The(1999)' and 'Unbreakable(2000)'. Both 1 and 2, personally for me, deserve atleast 4.0 out of 5 stars. Other good Third Movies that are worth mentionable are the pop-corn movies: Mission Impossible 3 (a lot better than the boring MI-2) and yes... Jurassic Park 3. This dino movie was a technically strong one with a near-perfect depiction of those dinos. A good thrilling one at that. Now that so many people out there have provided so many examples of Third Movies ranging from from Good to Excellent, Mr. Nolan, can we have our Batman-3, please ? And we hope Mr. Nolan, that you be at the director's helm, or else... see what happened to Terminator 3 which turned out to be just another pop-corn movie when we expected it to be a masterpiece like its predecessors ?
