Seeing the success of Top Gun Maverick makes me wonder what other "dad" franchises they're scrambling to dip back into.

Big movies from about the late 1970s to the mid-1990s, with enough cast members still alive and game to appear, that either didn't have a sequel, or didn't drive the sequels into the ground.

Maybe they'll figure out they need to a make a real Ghostbusters movie with the surviving original cast, and not just over-hyped cameos.

It really strikes me that a lot of these types of movies/franchises have already been poisoned with either bad/divisive sequels, franchise exhaustion, or too many sequels/reboots... Star Wars, Indiana Jones, Halloween, Alien, Terminator...

Blade Runner
would, on paper at least, seem to be one of these movies, but Blade Runner 2049 didn't exactly light up the box office. But then again, Blade Runner, like Carpenter's The Thing (which was also got an under-performing follow-up) was never more than a cult hit.

Spielberg doing CE3K Part Two? Bring back Richard Dreyfuss as an elderly UFO abductee for some kind of new adventure with flying saucers?

I do believe Blade Runner is getting a TV show
