Franchises that go back and tell the story's origins. Suggestions please.
Would the Hobbit count as an origins story?
In spite of how much I dislike Prometheus I have added it in. It perhaps asks more questions than it answers, but... my standards aren't high.
Knowing that this sudden burst of activity ought to propel this deserving list into the limelight, I have added the Hobbit to this list. I mean, I pretty much started with Phantom Menace, and one of my lists is calledSweet Seagal - nowhere to go but up!
It sounds like Man of Steel will qualify. Maybe add it closer to release?
Possibly, I'm happy to wait and see. Please feel free to continue to discuss it here though.
Low standards? What about Underworld: Rise of the Lycans?
Great, that ought to distract from Phantom.
Even lower standards? The prequel/godawful remake of The Thing.
It sounds purely awful. Is it an origin story as well as a prequel?
In essence it precedes the events of the Thing. It shows how the alien got there. Normally I'd say have a look yourself. Here, I won't. It's such an awful film.
