    Spirits!

  8. Sequel Is an Art Show About Those Follow-Up Films We’ll Never See

    No sign of Super Mario Bros. 2.

    My friends, we are never going to see Natalie Portman as a grown hitwoman taking bloody vengeance on the mafia that failed to protect her mentor and guardian the moment he talked about getting out of the game. We're never going to find out what might have happened if the Goblin King returned decades later. And yes, we're probably never going to see a Hellboy III.
