So I didn’t know they were making (or rather, had made) a sequel to the cult film “Donnie Darko”. Maybe it’s because I don’t care that much about “Donnie Darko” so I would be indifferent to news of a sequel. That indifference is what carries me now as I report that the trailer for the sequel, “S. Darko”, will be premieres at the New York Comic Con on Saturday, February 7th. They will screen the trailer and then will do a Q&A where I predict the most common question will be “Why?”
Also, here’s a brief synopsis via Wikipedia, Lord and Master of All That is True:
“Samantha Darko (Daveigh Chase) and her rebellious best friend Corey Richardson (Briana Evigan) leave on a cross-country road trip to Los Angeles in an attempt to ‘make it big’. Their dreams are cut short when their water pump blows outside of a tiny Utah town. Unable to leave until their car is fixed, Sam and Corey are stranded with the locals until their car’s fixed. Sam and Corey are less than thrilled at the delay, and when an unexplained meteorite crash-lands in town that night, it soon becomes clear that there is much more at play than just a chance breakdown.
Plagued by bizarre hallucinatory dreams warning her of the universe’s imminent end, as well as grief over her own loss of family, Sam must face the demons she had fled back at home. Aided by the unlikely town locals, Sam learns the true meaning of family and friendship, and in doing so, saves only herself.”
You should know that with the exception of Chase, no one from the original film is involved with this sequel. That may have something to do with the finite ending and that this movie seems horrible. Folks who attend the screening of the trailer, let us know what you thought.
