English Synonyms and Antonyms

  1. sequel

    A cataclysm or catastrophe is some great convulsion or momentous event that may or may not be a cause of misery to man. In calamity, or disaster, the thought of human suffering is always present. It has been held by many geologists that numerous catastrophes or cataclysms antedated the existence of man. In literature, the final event of a drama is the catastrophe, or denouement. Misfortune ordinarily suggests less of suddenness and violence than calamity or disaster, and is especially applied to that which is lingering or enduring in its effects. In history, the end of every great war or the fall of a nation is a catastrophe, tho it may not be a calamity. Yet such an event, if not a calamity to the race, will always involve much individual disaster and misfortune. Pestilence is a calamity; a defeat in battle, a shipwreck, or a failure in business is a disaster; sickness or loss of property is a misfortune; failure to meet a friend is a mischance; the breaking of a teacup is a mishap.

    calamity, cataclysm, catastrophe, denouement, disaster, mischance, misfortune, mishap

    benefit, blessing, boon, comfort, favor, help, pleasure, privilege, prosperity, success

  1. James Cameron:

    Prior to the COVID-19, everything was on track to bring you the first sequel in December of 2021. Unfortunately, due to the impact that the pandemic has had on our schedule it is no longer possible for us to make that date, there is no one more disappointed about this delay than me.

  3. Ben Stiller:

    When ('Zoolander') came out, not everybody saw it. It was, a little bit, I guess, out there. And somehow it got discovered over the years, which has been great, we didn't ever think we were actually going to do a sequel and then the last few years the momentum started building and now all the pieces came together.

  4. Michael Pachter:

    Sequels do better, new IP doesn't sell well. Even if a sequel falls off, the floor on sales is still higher than the ceiling on new games.

  5. Marc Toberoff:

    Miller now owns the copyright to his screenplay, including sequel rights, but Jason can't be portrayed as any older than in the first movie ?
