The Never-ending Final Destination
If you fast forward twenty years, it is likely that moviegoers will be watching Final Destination 11 in theaters. This movie saga seems to be never-ending, yet it still manages to rake in impressive profits and consistent audiences. The Final Destination series is like the energizer bunny—it keeps going and going and going.
The first movie of the saga was shown in theaters in the year 2000. The sequels that followed were released every three years, with the exception of Final Destination 5, which was released only after two years of the previous film. Each movie’s plot is based on a group of teenagers or young adults who cheat death. One of the main characters foresees an event, ranging from an airplane explosion to a rollercoaster accident, which would result in the group’s untimely death. However, by the protagonist preventing this prophetic vision from coming true, Death seeks revenge by killing off these characters one by one.
The movies are known for its gore and pyrotechnics. Although the films’ conclusions are predictable--everyone always dies—you are still somehow sucked into the plot and held in suspense by the death scenes. Now the ultimate question: How long will it take before audiences tire of this movie series?
