There is a rumour going around that John Carpenters " The Thing " is being lined up for a continuation story rather than a remake.....if they screw up my all time favourite film, that will beyond heresy.
Escape from the Goverment..
After a high profile bomber containing certain... artifacts belonging to the US Government is shot down over Western California, (everyone loves California,) the naive, womanising pilot, (Captain Brad Zipper, USAF) is captured by strange men in suits. He is drugged and taken to an empty hospital in San Fransisco for testing. While in hospital he finds he has powers and breaks out of his hospital bed, finds a sassy black girl as a sidekick, is pulled by a mystic force to somewhere in Nevada, drives across states, kills a lot of evil government types, blows up National Guard depots, nuclear stockpiles, FBI offices, Orphanages etc, finds place turns out it is Area 51, kills more people, exposes it all and becomes an International hero. Marries black chick they become leaders of the US and bring the world together.
I cannot forgive such crayoning on a masterpiece, which Wicker Man is despite the unfortunate casting of Britt Ekland as a villager in the Scotish islands. The island had to be pretty feckin far to the north for a villager to have a swedish accent. Other than her, wonderful film.
