Universal Wants to Unleash More ‘Mama’

Chris Savage

MAMA-PosterWhat with the Guillermo del Toro produced flick Mama, doing so well at the box-office, it only makes sense that the studio is anxious for more, and we may just have more in the near future.

According to Screen Daily, David Kosse, the Universal Pictures’ president of international productions has said;

There are more opportunities for this kind of film… We think there’s potential for a Mama franchise.

We’d like to do another one. But those conversations are in the early stages.

Mama is the first of this type of model that we’ve had enormous success with so there are more opportunities for this kind of film.

So my question is, what did you guys make of Mama, and would you like to see a sequel? How about the potential for a franchise, would you like to see a series of Mama films?

        I really liked the film as a whole – however, the CGI aspects were quite distracting. I credit it to the rest of the film looking so good that the CGI was as frustrating as it was for me. The mythos itself is interesting and seems like it could be adapted to new films/stories but hard to say.

          I liked this film. I can understand a part 2. But not going any further than that

        I was not a fan of Mama. It had some good moments but I felt really let down by the ending. I’m not sure what to think of a possible sequel.

        Not to good,same ole same ole. Most new horror movies suck. They can’t seen to capture the feel like some of the older ones did

        Seems like a lot dont care for the ending. Why? Yea, the CGI was a bit hokey but I still really enjoyed it, especially the first half which was pretty creepy. I like simple, old fashioned ghost stories and this fit the bill.
