A little delinquent on this, but here are the winners!
The winner of the DVD is Kim Akins, with a simple, but thought out outline for the logical progression of the film:
My suggestion for the sequel starts at the jail. Moses is being booked and housed with other young men who have been arrested for being the wrong race and class at the wrong time. The Attack continues with the constables believing that shooting will solve the problem. Moses and his crew successfully lead other prisoners out of the jail with some cops in tow. They end up in London central where they have to teach upper class Londoners,that along with an ability to fight, that they can strategize and utilize the environment to defeat an enemy.
And the winner of the poster is Keisha, with a similar idea, but a bit more detailed, with a fun twist:
So maybe the sequel can have one of the aliens not really dead from the first movie and go to exact revenge on Moses and his crew for killing most of the aliens. Since we never really see them dead, one could be alive to get even. He can call more reinforcements from outer space to make way for a second alien attack.
Initially, the cops won’t believe Moses or his crew about the aliens and they’ll arrest and charge Moses with all that has happened in the first movie. Obviously he’ll be given a major sentence for all the crimes that were committed (deaths of several persons, car theft, and armed robbery). But when the rest of the aliens land the cops will have no choice but to rely on Moses. This is because he is the only one who successfully killed the aliens and lived to tell about it. They will have to grant him a full pardon on the condition that he helps get rid of the aliens. And although they will still have their qualms about Moses, his crew and inner city youth altogether, they will be forced to view Moses on a higher echelon because he has done what no other person has done: kill an alien. They need him. He’ll be like Spider-Man or Batman; hated and loved at the same time.
Also, I want to see a bigger role for the girls as well. They massacred one of the aliens in the first movie and they will become a huge asset to Moses’ crew. Let them become part of the alien fighting crew since Moses lost two of his friends. Oh and the gangsta little kids too. Obviously they can hold their own.
While everyone didn’t win a prize, there were other good suggestions. Gregory suggests putting the sequel in Detroit; SA suggests having Moses explore the culture shock of university; Momsomniac says no Dakota Fanning; and Ashley pointed at the Riots as a possible backdrop for the next film, with more kids and shopkeepers (I’d love to see that one as the 3rd film).
Thanks to everyone!
