Oh God, they can think up a pseudonym and make a movie together. The PR will make it look like a funny and fluffy show with just a bit of action to attract a large crowd. The first twenty minutes are lighthearted fun with great dialogue and you really start to care for the characters. Then BOOM! It’s the apocalypse. Everybody dies, it’s all inevitable and horrible and full of emotions and we will weep. For days! Then we just gonna tell everybody we know to watch that movie. Heck, we’ll even go with them to see them having the same reaction. Nobody will ever say out loud what that movie is really about until everybody has had the same experience.
And if we need a female element ask Shonda Rhimes for some pointers, she is pretty good with awful heartbreaks as well.
Of course afterwards the internet will explode with fanfiction and every character - that we already hold dear in our hearts and can’t forget the moment the last glimmer of hope in their eyes, while they drowned in sorrow, lava and death - will get a full fledged backstory and we can sit at home and cry some more.
But it will be AWESOME
Now y’all understand why she is the tumblr crush, RIGHT?
True! But you forget that not everybody dies, this ain’t a Shakespeare play, So some of our dear characters will die, some others will have to go and live in the space or another dimension (with voyeuristic intention) others just be damaged for ever, our dear character will end up alone, broken hearted, traumatized and probably one step closer at being a murder, Later Moffat will just drop the idea of leave something open to interpretation, giving a little hope, maybe they’re not dead, or they can comeback from the dead, or there’s a portal you can use every 100 years to visit, or Russell will come up with a curse that NEVER will be broken but…
I can’t continue, I’ll cry!
Now you give me feelings about the thought that the sequel could be a musical. The last surviving humans in their little spaceship (emotionally damaged beyond repair with at least one evil incarnate on board that nobody suspects) can land on another planet and frakk up a whole new society. Of course the Doctor Who writers are totally on their home turf with this.
We need a whole new batch of English actors for this epic masterpiece - this shouldn’t be UK only of course, but I demand at least 10 UK accents to be covered.
Wow, the first movie will demand a really huge cast of characters. I think we’re talking at least 170 minutes worth of world ending with 23 principle characters (covering all the basic sexualities and ethnicities). The sequel can than deal with religious and political questions on a meta level, with humans being the aliens now…
Things not to expect - happy couples by the time the credits role, well, any happy person for that matter. Anyone taking the easy way out, they will all try to up one another to be the sacrifice instead of saving themselves.
Thing to expect - A twist that not even Shyamalan could dream up and the audience totally buys into it. Everything will make sense.
I’ll have to remember to send lingeringlilies a thank you basket for introducing us via Zombie Apocalypse.
you know who handels EPIC TWISTS? Moffat!! that fucking bastard will fry your brain by the end of a movie. That said the sequel will be a musical, and someone will die signing a song because that’s how people die in space, SINGING! -IDK, WHATS LOGIC AT THIS POINT- can we have zombies? Zombies in the space? OMG! what if the UK people are moving their friends, families and lovers bodies to space because earth exploded and the change in the atmosphere bring them back as Zombies? SHIT JUST GOT REAL! you know why? Because trapped in a ship with Zombies from space? THAT’S NEVER SEEN!
I find this utterly plausible. The sequel really has two subplots. While the one ship of survivor’s crash lands on another planet, there is this zombie infested ship where the fight for survival still goes on. But that ship is discovered by some curious interstellar travelers and everything just gets worse. During the final song both plotlines get reunited again, when the Zombie-Travelers reaches orbit of this other planet. After “blowing up” earth, reforming a new planet which leads to utter chaos and a zombie infection everything comes together when an ancient race awakens and thinks these sheenanigans have to stop, because the human race had been this test bubble to see if there was hope for the universe…
Wait a second, do zombies sing? I want a zombie dance number, but better than “Thriller”. We also need room for some Ninja-Pirates. And remember, it’s still always all about the characters and we really do care for them, because there a great writer’s at work who can tie this all up and make an amazing movie out of this. By now it’s already a trilogy of course… with merchandise. In the last installment it will be revealed that one of the four characters who survived all movies (unlike the other 162 characters we really loved and who dies horribly) is a timetraveler, doomed to always make new mistakes setting this whole thing in motion. Maybe the gay asian (gender is up for debate), just to have on of the more unlikely tragic hero type.
Wait, what are we talking about? I think I better take my medication…
