Just seen a trailer for this.
The first film was so unique I thought there'd never be a sequel.
you'll wish they never made a sequel.
I'm so torn between wanting to see it, because I'd love to know 'what happens next', but I'm terrified it will spoil the first one forever. Allegedly it's about Samantha at 18 trying to become a professional dancer?! I'm guessing there's more to it.
but I really wanted to see it and I didn't know when it was going to be released. I really didn't like it though. For me it didn't borrow from Donnie Darko as much as rip it off entirely.
Regarding the plot after watching the film I really have no clue what it's about aside from going through the same motions as the original film.
its going to ruin the legacy.
Er.. like the Matrix films.
why are they calling it "Donnie Darko 2" when the title is S. Darko and Donnie doesn't feature in it?
They made this for cash? Not ART!? Shit...
and the director/ writer whatever of the first wants nothing to do with it.
I suspected this. Any of the same cast?
and half the cast of gossip girl/the OC
I'm not interested. They made the first film!
<3 <3 <3 <3 <3
and tbh I think I'll stay well away from it myself.
Donnie Darko's writer and director, Richard Kelly, has stated that he has no involvement with S. Darko. He stated "To set the record straight, here's a few facts I'd like to share with you all -- I haven't read this script. I have absolutely no involvement with this production, nor will I ever be involved." Chris Fisher, director of S. Darko, noted that he was an admirer of Kelly's film, and that he hoped "to create a similar world of blurred fantasy and reality."
S. Darko (also known as S. Darko: A Donnie Darko Tale) is the sequel to the 2001 cult-hit, Donnie Darko. The film was released straight to video on DVD and Blu-ray on May 12, 2009 in the US, while in most European countries it will be released to theaters.
its going to be very rubbish.
It's got Elizabeth Berkley from Showgirls in it! How can it not be a fitting sequel?
beating that dead horse.
