Today in “Movie sequels I never knew I needed”: Kung Fury!
If you haven’t watched the first Kung Fury, you’re ruining your life. It’s one of the most original, ridiculous and amazing ‘Bad’ Movies you’ll ever see. It all started with a 3-minute (fake) movie trailer a few years ago and that turned into a Kickstarter, managed to raise over 600 THOUSAND dollars on a 200 thousand dollar goal, which led to a 30 minute “full length” on YouTube that was just… incredible. I LOVE me a ‘bad’ movie when it’s made on purpose.
If you haven’t seen “Manborg”
or “Black Dynamite”
I STRONGLY advise it.
Then I hear news of a sequel, which gets my blood pumping, and then the casting starts rolling out. First it’s announced that Michael Fassbender has been cast! Yes, Magneto himself is going to be in Kung Fury 2! Then, today, it’s released that Arnold Schwarzenegger is going to be in it too! This is the strangest and most out of the box casting I’ve ever heard of. If my math is right, 29 million hits on YouTube should gross them around $200,000! Which is pretty damn good for a movie about a time travelling 80’s ninja-cop that travels back in time to fight dinosaurs & Hitler with the help of Thor.
I can’t WAIT to see what this sequel is about, but I’m worried that they’re going to get too much money and the magic of the first one will get lost. I have no idea what the plot will be or who/what Arnold & Fassbender are going to be playing, but if it’s anything like the first one, it’s going to be my favorite movie of that year!
