Sequel News on "Hellboy," "Tomb Raider"

People suffered through the "Tomb Raider" sequel hoping against hope that maybe this time, they got it right. Sadly, they didn't, and apparently won't have the chance to again.  "The second 'Tomb Raider' film didn't do the kind of business Paramount Pictures wanted from it so they shelved plans for any more sequels," producer Lawrence Gordon tells the Calgary Sun (mostly, this was due to the fact that it was a bad idea and sucked dead donkey dick). "We'd have liked to do a third, and I know Angelina [Jolie] was interested, but if there isn't an audience there won't be a movie." "Lara Croft Tomb Raider: The Cradle of Life," which cost an estimated $90 million (little of which apparently went into the script), earned about $65 million domestically.

On the plus side, Gordon reveals there are "several more" installments planned for this weekend's Ron Perlman-a-rific box office champ "Hellboy." Not only that, but another beloved comic franchise is about to become a big screen reality. "We're going to do 'The Watchman,'" "Hellboy" co-producer Lloyd Levin tells Cindy Pearlman. "[I]t's really a unique story because it deals with the spiritual aspect of being a superhero."  Hopefully, they mean 'Watchmen', which could kick a lot of ass if done properly...not that I expect them to, but we can hope, right?
