You’ll Never Believe What The Title For ‘Final Destination 5’ Could Be
  |  @   |  

Bloody-Disgusting has uncovered a bit of information regarding Warner Brothers Pictures fifth installment in the Final Destination franchise. And though we don’t know much about the movie itself, what we read here could just say a lot about what direction the horror flick is heading in.

We won’t waste your time — let’s get right to it. According to the source, Warner Bros. is currently leaning toward calling their new movie 5NAL DESTINATION. Yes, that’s actually what words are indicating could be the new title. Five-nal Destination. Seriously.

Now, this sounds like it’s only the “tentative” title so far, which means they’re leaning toward it but nothing is 100% set in stone. This is a bit of good news because that title is going to get absolutely eviscerated by everyone who reads about it (eviscerate away in the comments below!), and hopefully the studio will see this and change it before looking too stupid.

The only real time that a number used in a movie title seemed to work was with Se7en, but even that still looks a little strange. Apart from that, the very idea makes no sense at all, and it really just makes your title look awkward and unoriginal. In turn, such titles could lead people to automatically assume that if you don’t have the creative ability to name your movie, how could the movie itself possibly be worth paying money to see. Just saying.

Another bit of information uncovered is that this time around, the gruesome opening scene that sets the table for the entire flick will take place on a nice, big, swaying suspension bridge. This idea I very much like. Suspension bridges are terrifying enough as it is, so a good Final Destination scene on one could (hopefully) leave us clenching armrests and holding our breath.

5nal Destination (wow, it looks even worse with lower-case letters. I bet the porn parody is already in production) will be directed by James Cameron protege Steven Quale, and the script is penned by Eric Heisserer, who recently wrote the script for The Thing remake. Filming is expected to begin in September.

  1. As if anyone is seriously considering watching part 5 of this series in a movie theater. I mean come on, let’s talk about the few times that a Horror series had any reason to exist beyond the first sequel.

    If I remember correctly, Final Destination was already going downhill fast, and after that I didn’t even watch any of it, but judging by the IMDb ratings they get I didn’t miss anything.

  3. Oh man. Sad to say, the VERY first thing I thought of when I read the title (before I clicked over to read the rest) was “Anal Destination”… Yeah… wow…
    Let’s compare the two:

    5NAL DESTINATION
    5nal Destination
    Anal Destination

    Yeah… they better change that soon

  4. Yeah, Anal Destination for sure, but hey, we don’t know if there will be an anal destination in the film, do we?

    WB is actually smart because think about it: would anyone be talking about the fifth movie in a bad horror franchise if they hadn’t come up with a retarded title? NOPE!!!!! I’m sure they’ll change it eventually.

  5. 5nal Destination
    Anal Destination
    Anal Distention

    That’s right. It’s two changes from Goatse. Wonderful.

  6. I did a double-take at the phrase “will be directed by James Cameron” before I realized it continued on the next line.

  8. Wouldn’t something like “Final De5tination” make more sense, or at least look better? I don’t think I’ll be seeing 5nal Destination though. Starting to lose interest in the franchise.

  9. I have to go with Paul. He says wouldn’t it make more sense to call it final de5tination & I have to agree with him on that! It would look much better and your still using a number 5 in the title. So that’s how it should look.
