This one didn't do too well. More than likely there won't be sequels.

Yeah, it was sort of a bomb financially. Well, maybe not a bomb due to it's low budget, but definately a disappointment.

Anyone know if it's doing well on DVD?

Honestly, this film doesn't need a sequel anyway. The first series had a sequel and it didn't work out very well.

True it doesn't need a sequel but quick and cheap sequels seem to be the trend these days and if the sequel to the first Hitcher (20 years later) wasn't sucessfull in terms of profit I doubt the remake would have been done. Then again who knows?

The sequel to the first film likely only made a few million dollars. It was a Direct to Video sequel. I remember our video store only had one copy of the film.

This remake was made by Platinum Dunes. It seems to be their specialty, remakes I mean. They're going after F13 next. They already did Leatherface.
