Box office disappointment?
- I guess so, but apparently was not good enough to warrant a sequel. --Ben41 (talk) 20:31, 18 August 2014 (EDT)
- Well, Tim Burton was quoted on the subject of whether or not he'd want to direct a sequel as saying "I'd rather jump out a window", so maybe Fox just considered it easier to reboot the whole thing instead of burden someone with trying to make sense of Burton's confusing ending? Although IMO it's most likely Burton intended to pull an Escape and have it just be a matter of Thade salvaging Leo's ship, (somehow) restoring it to working order, learning to pilot it, and arriving on earth and subjugating the human race decades (or even centuries) before Leo returned.
