Where are we now as America, and as Americans -- questions Michael Moore is going to try to answer in his planned follow-up to "Fahrenheit 9/11." Just don't call it a sequel:
"To just say it's a sequel is so wrong," Moore told The Associated Press on Friday at the Cannes Film Festival, where he met with potential international distributors for the film, due out in 2009.
"It would be easier and safer to make a sequel, if that's all it was, but this isn't about Bush. We all know this. Regardless of who the president is come November, we have a big mess, a big, big mess to be cleaned up, and I don't know whether it can be cleaned up," Moore said.
"Fahrenheit 9/11" became the biggest money-making documentary ever, raking in $100M at the box-office. It's a thoughtful, scary, and incendiary flick, that was way ahead of its time!
Years later, many great documentaries examining America's business with the war on Iraq came out, but none as powerful and trailblazing as "Fahrenheit 9/11."
I enjoy Moore as a documentarian. He's good at creating insightful yet entertaining flicks. And I can't wait to see his planned follow-up, and I'm not calling it a sequel

"The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian" pushes off "Iron Man" as ruler at the box office, taking in $56.6 million.
Don't feel sorry for our good friend "Iron Man" though. So far, its domestic total has reached $222.5 million, and many industry insiders are saying that the film is holding its appeal better than "Spider-Man 3."
The number 3 flick? The comedy "What Happens in Vegas," starring Cameron Diaz and Ashton Kutcher, took in $13.9 million, with a domestic total of $40.3 million, well above its $35 million budget.

"Speed" and "Twister" director, Jan de Bont is on board to helm the sequel, to be called "Point Break: Indo."
According to the Hollywood Reporter, the new film will take place 20 years after the disappearance of one of the criminal surfers (Patrick Swayze). So, no Patrick Swayze, and possibly, no Keanu Reeves either
The film will shoot in Singapore and Southeast Asia.

"S. Darko." Fox is moving forward with this sequel, WITHOUT the participation from the original cult hit's director, Richard Kelly. The director was reportedly heard saying, "he doesn't want any part of it!"
Tsk, tsk. According to IMDB, the sequel is going to be about:
The story picks up seven years after the first film when little sister Samantha Darko and her best friend Corey are now 18 and on a roadtrip to Los Angeles when they are plagued by bizarre visions.
