Lost Fans: Would You Want a Lost Movie?

Though he asserts that it probably won't ever happen, JJ Abrams recently said in an interview that theoretically there "could be" a Lost movie after the series ends in 2010.

I imagine it would basically be like one long episode explaining any unsolved mysteries from the series, but do you think that would be necessary or interesting once the show is over? Are there enough Lost fans to make a movie worthwhile? Do you think it would be fun to see Lost on the big screen someday, or does the idea strike you as pointless?

I don't think I would want to see a Lost movie - I agree with Phil, it would be just so cheap not to wrap up all of the storylines by the end of the show and charge fans see a movie in order to get some closure. I'm already getting sick of the show...i mean, how many characters are they going to kill off? It's getting really old.

I agree with Phil-- Though J.J. Abrams was involved in the original plan, Damon Lindelof and Carlton Cuse want to end the series the right way. Abrams wants a cash cow. If the loose ends are tied up as they should be at the end of the series, there's absolutely no need for a movie. I think it would just ruin the series by trying to pack a world of backstory into a two-hour movie.

The only thing that would be acceptable after the final episode of the sixth season would be if somehow Darlton were to convince Steve McPherson to greenlight the Lost Zombie season.

I have to say since I started watching Lost, it's become my favourite show on television. I'm borderline obsessed with this show sometimes. It is with that viewpoint that I don't believe that a Lost movie after the series ends would be a good idea AT ALL. First off, JJ Abrams has little control over the show when compared to the EPs Carlton Cuse and Damon Lindelof. Darlton have stated that the come the end of the show there will be no Lost movie or extra season of Lost as that would be complete and total cop out for fans of the series. To make a post-series feature film would just be cheating faithful fans by charging them ticket prices to see a series finale. Darlton recognize this as a road they do not want the series to go, and it would ultimately cheapen the franchise (the way the satiating but pointless X-Files movie did). JJ Abrams should leave the ball in Darlton's court and abandon this idea of squeezing Lost fans' wallets.

I'd LOOOVE if there was a movie...even though I'm anxious to see the ending, I'm sad at the thought of no more "Lost".

I would go see the movie. But I think the movie would be more worthwhile depending on how the final episodes play out.

The writers already have a vision for how this story is supposed to end on television. Continuing the story to a non-serialized film version would be completely pointless and a betrayal of the kind of work Abrams and Co want to produce. As much as I love packing in a 4 hour dvd of Lost into my day, I wouldn't want to spend 2.5 hours watching a movie that doesn't continue the serialized story in any way. (I'm talking to you, The X-Files: I Want to Believe.)

I don't want one, but maybe in a few years. It will probably suck like Indiana Jones, but I'm a glutton for punishment.

No! Lost needs a definitive ending, not one with lots and lots of potential plot openings for a movie. Plus I'm still holding out for a Veronica Mars movie, although that doesn't have quite as big of a fan base.

Pointless! As a fan I would be pissed if they just keep stringing us along! Either another season or nothing!!!!

i just have a feeling that they'll end the series in a way that it has closure and all that. i think that there's been so many different perspectives throughout the show that they can't really make a movie to expand on it anymore than they have i don't think. i don't know - i guess we'll have to see what ideas JJ comes up with if he's set on having a movie.

I don't think I want a Lost movie, even though I love the series. All I have to say is that there better be some closure, no matter what they do!

It just depends on how they end the series! If it's still open and has unanswered questions then hell yea I want a movie because I want closure. But if everything gets tied up, then there's no reason for a movie. God I can't wait for the next season!!!!
