If you could pick one movie that you wish hadn't bombed, opening up the possibility of sequels/spin-offs/a franchise, what would it be?

Warcraft, because I wanted to see an Arthas movie. I know it wasn't a huge bomb, but it didn't make enough to warrant development of any sequels.

Well theres hundreds of classics that did not make their money back if that's how we are defining bomb.

Your Highness. Not as much for McBride and Green since their later work is sublime and more that even though it was a fantasy story that was comedy not drama, but not a parody. I would like more films like that (though not necessarily fantasy) where even though it’s a comedy it takes place IN the genre and isn’t just a parody making fun OF the genre if that makes any sense.

The 2012 Judge Dredd movie. Though I hear the IP owners, Rebellion, have now just bought a $100 million dollar facility in the UK and are now working on a "Mega City One" series. So this might not be dead.

Master and Commander. It didn't exactly bomb but it didn't open the doors for more films.

As a future prediction, I really hope Bumblebee does gangbusters.

The future of Transformers movies with actual Transformers and no offensive humans in them rests on its shoulders.

Tron: Legacy (it was extremely bad but I want that third movie).

I'm actually not that upset with Blade Runner 2049 bombing (it didn't deserve to, of course) because even though it's a really really fantastic film, I don't want it to be turned into a recurring franchise AND Villeneuve's career is doing just fine. Grateful that it exists but its box office receipts are unimportant to me.

Sahara.

Could have been a decent brain off adventure type of series that you always seem to leave on when you're flicking channels. Probably.

So we're including disappointments right? Not just straight bombas?

if so MAD MAX FURY ROAD

MST3K: The Movie. It wasn't a "bomb" necessarily as it was only released to 26 theaters, but the studio meddling made the process a nightmare for the guys. They originally wanted to completely focus on the characters' backstory and not the riffing. They also made they change certain riffs that were "too obscure" and add random cursing to get a PG-13 rating.

Tron Legacy is my choice. So much can be done with that franchise as evidenced by Uprising.

Other films I enjoyed that bombed aren’t quite as franchise-ready.

I'm sure many will disagree but Solo. The tease at the end made me want to see where they were planning to go with things.

Gonna echo whoever says Warcraft, for the exact same reasons. The Arthas story would have been fantastic.
