If Rebel Moon 2 is just the ending of Rebel Moon 1 could Rebel Moon turn out OK?

The primary trailer for Rebel Moon: The Scargiver quietly dropped on Christmas Day, however even with 1 million views and counting, it’s unclear if Netflix bought a prized present in its stocking or lump of coal.

Rebel Moon is at present the #1 film on Netflix (accounting for 23.9M views as of first six days on the platform, in line with (*1*)). It’s additionally a blemish on director Zack Snyder’s monitor file; Whereas he’s not sometimes a important darling, the fantasy area opera has garnered some of the sourest reviews of his career, hovering between Sucker Punch and Justice League (the first try) on the Rotten Tomatoes overview aggregator. Is there hope for the Rebel Moon universe?

Netflix has to hope so — not solely does the streamer have a Rebel Moon sequel, The Scargiver, locked and loaded for spring 2024, there’s clear hope for a larger enlargement of the universe into different properties. At the very least, we’re getting an R-rated reduce of the first movie, Rebel Moon: A Little one of Fireplace, and (*2*) from Tremendous Evil Megacorp… ultimately.

However whereas it’s exhausting to think about “course correction” for the budding franchise — it’s Snyder’s child by and thru — the first trailer for Rebel Moon: The Scargiver could see enchancment. A Little one of Fireplace promised a Seven Samurai-esque group film with a climactic battle of underdogs versus imperial scum… with out truly delivering the climactic battle. With the muscle now in place, The Scargiver appears to be like like a 3rd act of the unique pitch damaged out right into a sequel. If it’s all slo-mo motion and reference-heavy iconography swirling round in a cloud of motion, it could be what Snyder was envisioning all alongside? At the very least, we’re getting much more Djimon Hounsou, which is an excellent signal.

Rebel Moon: The Scargiver will premiere on Netflix on April 19, 2024. And both earlier than or after that, we’re getting the rated-R cuts of one or each of the motion pictures, which could be price holding out for. At the very least, Snyder says they happen in a “different dimension” than the PG-13 motion pictures, so there’s that.
