Donnie Darko 2 (S. Darko: A Donnie Darko Tale)

First off hat tip to @Bryanclark over at Nerdgazm.com (One of my new favorite sites) for pointing out that there is a new donnie darko flick coming out. It’s titled S. Darko: A Donnie Darko Tale. Go ahead and watch the trailer so we can get down to business.

Okay, so they pretty much took the Donnie Darko name and Richard Kelley’s vision and ran with it their own direction. Richard Kelley wrote and directed the original Donnie Darko, now he’s only a writer in the sequel (Characters according to imdb). Good or bad, we won’t know until it hits theaters, but one thing is for sure, it definitely has a different theme to it. And I suspect that it won’t have the same cult following because of it.

People loved Donnie Darko because it was so fucked up. Well, people that I knew anyway. The whole time travel concept was kinda along for the ride, not the focus of the movie. We were more concerened about how all the characters came together, how Donnie got so fucked up in the head, what a fuckass is, why everyone was so weird, it was so similar to our world, yet so distant at the same time. And Frank, we all loved Frank. I really hope the next movie has that special “what the fuck?” feeling when you walk out of the theater, the trailer unfortunately doesn’t show it…
