It's only happened a few times in the history of film. A sequel being better than the original movie. We're talking Godfather II and The Empire Strikes Back, and maybe a couple of other films along the way, and that's it. Well, what of The Fantastic Four? The original movie was so dismal that no one could believe that they were making another, and yet, FF2: The Rise of the Silver Surfer is almost upon us, and it looks good.
There's a new trailer online at Apple.com, where you can see for yourself, but, trust me, this is definitely going to be better than the original. First of all, who doesn't love Silver Surfer? And the storyline with him is an excellent one. Second, it almost looks as if the cast knows that they've got nothing to lose here, and that they're going all out to make this decent. Seriously, this could ressurrect a franchise.
