Final Destination 5 Gets Gratuitous Number in Title, Opening Disaster Revealed

7 Comments

The gorehounds at Bloody-Disgusting have your inside dish on all things “Final Destination 5″. Or as it’s now being called, “5nal Destination”. I shit you not. Some genius in a suit somewhere in Hollywood came up with that then ran into his boss’s office and acted like he had just cured cancer. I wonder if it’s the same guy who is naming all those silly “Fast and Furious” movies…

But more importantly, BD also has news on the film’s opening disaster. All the “Final Destination” movies feature an opening disaster sequence where a bunch of people are killed, including our young lead, before it’s revealed that he/she only saw it in a premonition, prompting him/her to act all nutty and stall death’s arrival for himself/herself and a bunch of others. Death, then, spends the rest of the movie trying to kill them anyway. It’s clock-work, like the opening theme of a TV show, and the fifth entry in the franchise will be no different. Why start now, after all?

According to BD, this time around the teen spam — er, I mean, characters — will be caught on a suspension bridge disaster that kills oodles of people, but not our young leads.

Here’s all the opening disasters from the previous four movies to get you caught up. Ooh, disaster-y!

    I agree. Everybody knew when they called FD4 “The Final Destination” that it was only the beginning of this series going into 'tard-ville. Although, I'mma have to disagree wit my man Nix about the F&F movies. With the exception of Tokyo Drift, I like how they kind of played with the words THE in the title. If anything, it saved them from having insanely long titles al la Harry Potter. Although, Fast Five is still trying to grow on me….

    Again…another writer uses the work of someone else to create a “new” script. OK…so the past “Final” films were slightly entertaining…with enough gore to satisfy horror films…but enough already. “Final” means the end….and so it should for this series of films. They become so predictable that you know what is going to happen next before you see it. Save your money at the box office…wait until it is a rental somewhere…or better yet…rent something different that sounds better.

    face it…as long as people are stupid enough to waste their money on shi – er, endeavors like “Fast & Furious” or “Final Destination”, they will keep pumping them out…kinda like crack babies…
