Hollywood studios get a lot of flack for splitting big-screen book adaptations into multiple parts. But what about the Hollywood blockbusters that really should have been split into more than one film, but were not?
I’m talking about the movies that try to do too much within the confines of one film. Sometimes, they have too much plot. Other times, they have two parallel stories that could have easily sustained their own films. Always, you come out of these cinematic experiences imagining the better movie or movies that existed inside of the movie that was inevitably made. (Or at least I do.)
Need some examples? Here are five Hollywood films that should have been split into two movies…
The much-anticipated prequel to the Harry Potter book/film series, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them has some great ideas in it, but, as a film, is a bit of a mess. First-time screenwriter J.K. Rowling seems torn between two stories: a movie about Newt Scamander capturing and nurturing magical creatures and a movie about the rise of magical fascism in mid-century America.
It’s the latter story where Rowling’s interests truly seem to lie, making the Obscurus/Grindelwald plot far better developed than the magizoologist plot. The two plots are also tonally at odds, with one featuring child abuse, murder, and corruption, and the other featuring an adorable creature who steals shiny things. The two parallel plots don’t mesh very well and could have each sustained their own film.
