After the immense success of Gremlins in 1984, Warner Bros. seeks at all costs to start a sequel. According to director Joe Dante , the studio didn't know how to do it, as they didn't really understand the first film.

If you give us a sequel, you have carte blanche." ", confides the filmmaker to Rockyrama .

The Latest: Trump takes a Big 10 football lap in Ohio rally

  The Latest: Trump takes a Big 10 football lap in Ohio rally WASHINGTON — The Latest on the presidential campaign (all times local): 7:20 .m. President Donald Trump is making sure Ohioans remember that he pushed the Big Ten to play football after the season had initially been cancelled amid concerns about the coronavirus pandemic. Trump held a big rally about 30 miles from the Ohio State University campus, not long after the Buckeyes won their delayed season opener over Nebraska Saturday afternoon. The Big Ten had initially scuttled fall sports but did an about face last month on football amid pressure from Trump as well as athletes, coaches, fans and college towns that rely on football Saturdays to fill restaurants and hotels and

Six years after the release of the first film, Gremlins 2 is finally born. However, despite calls from Warner's foot, director Joe Dante was reluctant to come back. But as technology evolved in the meantime, the filmmaker and his team "were now able to do things that were not possible before."

For this second part, the director goes headlong by pushing even harder the anti-capitalist and anti-consumerist message of the first opus. On top of that, he adds a sharp criticism of the media and of American society, all concentrated in the heart of a huge skyscraper. To reinforce his point, Joe Dante invents Daniel Clamp, a billionaire businessman whose cynicism is matched only by his excessive verve.

In order to build a credible character, the filmmaker is inspired by Ted Turner, big man of American television, founder of the CNN and TBS channels, and Donald Trump , at the time real estate mogul. The Clamp Tower in the feature film is an obvious nod to New York's Trump Tower, erected in 1983.

"We wanted a real estate mogul, who was popular, iconic, and had a lot of stuff. . Trump fulfilled all his conditions. But Clamp is also the boss of a TV channel and we were also inspired by Ted Turner. Basically, Clamp was to be the big bad of the film, but John Glover , who l 'performer, has made him a kind of eternal child excited by his fortune and all that it allows him to achieve. He became rather endearing in the end. So he has little to do with the star of reality TV who serves as president. That's how he got elected, he's a star president and we are part of his show ", tackled Joe Dante at GQ in 2017.

Like many stars of show business, the director does not carry the current President of the USA in his heart. t candidate for succession. Joe Dante has admitted that in retrospect, Gremlins 2 is the first anti-Trump film in the history of American cinema. Unfortunately for the filmmaker, the second opus will be a fiasco.

"The movie came out six years after Gremlins, and it cost three times as much. You can't miss that much time. Ghostbusters 2 had the same problem the year before, it didn't It didn't go very well either. As for Gremlins 2, I think the whole idea of ​​Gremlins had become somewhat outdated. There's also the fact that the release date was changed. The movie was due out. for the end of May, during the Memorial Day holiday weekend.

The TV spots had been broadcast and announced this date, but the studio changed their mind and decided to postpone the film from three weeks. When the TV commercials started playing again, people must have said to themselves that it was already a movie that was no longer showing, since they had already seen these commercials on television there. three months ago. So yes, the film did not perform as well at the box office. But it was an expensive film, you know ", analyzes the director on stage at Rockyrama.

All of Joe Dante's subsequent films will be box office failures, from Panic on Florida Beach to Small Soldiers to Looney Tunes Take Action . He will never find the success he met with Gremlins.

It is, moreover, quite funny to note that Joe Dante, after having suffered several setbacks in the cinema, turned to the small screen. Despite the scathing media and television reviews in his films, the director eventually worked for the Little Skylight, starring episodes of series like CSI , Hawaii Five-O or the reboot MacGyver . . Has billionaire Daniel Clamp finally got the better of his creator?
