Hello Fellow Moviegoers!
It seems like in the world of movies and TV that we live in today, almost nothing can be "successful" without being a part of a connected universe of some sort. From Marvel, to DC, to DC again, and to Ghostbusters?, sorry Dan Aykroyd that problem won't happen, cinematic universes seem to be the thing to do nowadays. Some people can pull it off, some can't. Well now we get to add yet another franchise to the list of convoluted cinematic universes we have. Classic Monsters.
While it has been a few months since Universal announced they were going to be building a cinematic universe out of their classic movie monsters (Dracula, The Wolf Man, Frankenstein, The Mummy etc.), the films being made have been a little unknown. While Dracula Untold supposedly kicked off this universe, it was kind of shoehorned in, as they went back and filmed an extra scene to make it tie in (By the way, I have not seen Dracula Untold yet, as it has not come to my local theatre yet, but I am told it will soon, so keep an eye out for my review of that).
The previously announced kick-off for this universe was 2016's The Mummy reboot. Hopefully this movie will tie it together enough to get ready for the next movie in this universe that has secured a release in Spring 2017. While it has not been confirmed what movie this will be, a lot of people are speculating that it will be Van Helsing, personally I want them to do one more movie before introducing that great character into this universe. Maybe Frankenstein? Whatever it is, I really hope that they can pull this universe together well because there is some great potential here.
What do you think of Universal putting together their own Monster Movie Universe? Comment on this post and let me know!
