The Lost Lighthouse: The Weekly Rapture 48 – Rewatching the Watchmen

Welcome back to The Weekly Rapture, brought to you by The Lost Lighthouse.

This week we recorded in the same room! As a result this is probably the most rambling, tangential episode we have done in a very long time. And that is really saying something. We chat about all the cool teasers for the upcoming Jessica Jones Netflix series, the Back to the Future 30th anniversary celebrations, the talks about a Watchmen series on HBO, the excellent new title for Prometheus 2 and Transformers films coming out on a regular basis until you are a distant memory and the universe enters heat-death. We also talked about blue dongs and 2009 a lot, and waste about 10 minutes trying to remember the plot of Transformers 3.

Leading on from talking about Not-Prometheus 2, 3 and 4, and Transformers 5, 6, 7 and 8, this week’s main talking point (sort of) was how many directors and studios are announcing all their upcoming movies and sequels for the next 500 years, regardless of how good the first film was or how well it did.  Gone are the days when a film was written as a single, tight entity and then if a sequel was conceived of then it was green lit. Now we know every genre film coming out until 2020, which is simultaneously exciting, not exciting at all, and a terrifying reminder of our own mortality. What do you think about it? Let us know!
