Rings picture

Trivia: Due to the success of 2002's "The Ring" and it's 2005 sequel "The Ring Two", a third film was planned for some time, with rumors of it starting as early as 2006. In the early 2010's, the film was greenlit under the working title "The Ring 3D" to capitalize on the resurgence of 3D films following James Cameron's "Avatar." However, the production was troubled and the film didn't go into principal photography until 2015, with the budget having been slashed and the proposed 3D concept having been dropped. The film was originally intended for a November 2015 release, but this was pushed back to April and then again to October of 2016 to accommodate studio-mandated reshoots to make the film more marketable. Less than a month before its intended October release, it was again pushed back to February, 2017.

Underworld: Blood Wars picture

Trivia: "Blood Wars" has been confirmed to be the final "Underworld" to star Kate Beckinsale, and possibly the final film in the series. It was originally intended for there to be one final entry in the series featuring Beckinsale's trademark character Selene to finish off her storyline, but Beckinsale stated in late 2018 that she felt she had done "enough" films in the series and wasn't interested in reprising her role for a sixth film. After the film under-performed at the box office, there has also been no news on any future films, with series co-creator Len Wiseman instead expressing interest in rebooting the franchise as a television series.
