Crank sequel opening revealed?

Crank_Poster.jpgMark Neveldine and Brian Taylor have been talking about Crank 2, the sequel to Crank (Filmstalker review), a great fun action film, and they revealed a little of just how they are going to get the sequel to work.

First up, Jason Statham is appearing in the sequel, and for those of you who haven't seen the first film I would suggest looking away before a reveal.

Crank sees Jason Statham's character injected with a fatal poison that means if he doesn't keep his adrenaline levels high his heart will stop. However he doesn't know who or why he's been poisoned so he sets on a path to find the answers all the while engaging in more adrenaline thumping activities to keep himself going. It is a lot of fun, fantastically filmed, and has some superb stunts and set-ups in it.

However, and here's the spoiler, at the end he's falling out of a helicopter plummeting towards Earth with seemingly no way out. Now through Latino Review we hear a little of what the sequel has planned.

“Taylor said that the last shot of the first film would be the first shot of the second film.”

What? That hasn't revealed anything, it's just set-up even more questions! How is he possibly going to survive the fall and begin again? I am now really confused and I'm desperate to see what they have in store, and how they can possibly bring the character back from the brink of the closing scenes of Crank. Any ideas?

Jonah Hex has been talking about a Crank sequel? As in Jonah Hex, the fictional character?

I think you mean Mark Neveldine.

You're right Brendon. Thanks once again for only stopping by when you spot a mistake and to promote your own site.

Don't you love the internet. Full of contstructive discussion.

The first film doesn't end with him falling, it ends with him already having hit the pavement and blood oozing out of his various orifices. They could easily think of something to get him out of a fall but how can they realistically bring him back from the dead? Unlikely to be pulled off with any believability.

I don't remember him actually hitting, I thought it had been implied. Didn't it fade to black before the actual moment?

Nope, he hits the ground and bounces no less, coming to rest right next to the camera with his face pretty much filling the screen. Unless he's some distant cousin of Wolverine I'm pretty sure he's brown bread.

Has it actually been confirmed that Statham is the protagonist for the sequel? Or might he just be in it briefly at the beginning as his remains get scooped off the pavement and walls before proceeding with the story without him? Just a thought ;)

Wow, okay I stand corrected. I had remembered it as him falling.

In that case I can't see a single way they can get him back unless they play it one of three ways.

It was a dream.
Physics aside he survived.
Or as you rightly suggest Demon, he is dead and Statham appears only to being with.

I guess they could also play the twin card, but most of these are really poor.

Remember how at the end, there was a heart beat? That could imply he was still alive. Also, hitting the car may have somewhat dampened the fall, although that seems very unlikely.

I dont know if you guys are writing your comments from memory of the film or if you just watched it but either way you missed out the crucial part which shows blatantly that he survives the fall and hence a sequel will be inevitable.

After Chevy falls and bounces on the car he lands on the road and the camera zooms to a shot of his bloody head and after a few moments he blinks once. Him blinking shows he is still pumping the living banter. Starting the next one with that scene should be good and i definately cant wait for it to come out!

Peace out!

AT THE END HE HITS THE CAR AND IT SHOWS U HIS FACE AND OBVIOUSLY THEY HAVE MENT 4 HIM 2 BE STILL ALIVE COZ HE BLINKS THERE FOR HES ALIVE U IDIOTS ANY WAYS CANT WAIT FOR THE NEW FILM GONNA BE GREAT CHILLIN WIF ME MATES AND A SPLIFF WATCHING IT SOO HURRY UP AND MAKE IT PLZZZ CANT WAIT ANY WAY L8AZ OFF 2 AV A FEW JOINTS INABIT.... P.S HOPFULY A CRANK 3 ASWEL HAHA

if you watch the end of crank carefully, after he bounces off the car and hits the floor......he blinks!

I'm almost positive that some sort of operation on Statham is gonna take place and he's going to end up miraculously living with robotic parts :-P
