Just watched it yesterday for the first time and it just seems to me ending was ripe for a sequel.

You need help.

It didn't do well at the box-office after stellar previews. I think if it had hit big sequels wouldn't have been unlikely.

i recently watched this again with the audio by carpenter and russel. The said that it did finish with that feeling there could be a sequel but there was never an intention to have one and the chance of there being one was not an option. It is what it is.

"You know what ole Jack Burton always says at a time like this?"

Who?

"Big Trouble in Little China" is a quirky 80's classic. My fav 80's Kurt Russell character will always be Snake Plissken, but ole Jack Burton might just be able to give him a lightening bolt or two on occasion.

As far as a sequel.. I don't think it was initially received well enough to be considered. Might work now though..

I thought I remembered reading an article with Kurt Russell saying that it would be a fun thing to do but I think too much time has passed. As much as I would love to see a sequel I don't think it could work. But what a fun movie.

"Follow Jack Burton from Big Trouble in Little China on his new adventures with Wang, Egg Chen, and the rest of the gang.
This is the sequel to one of the greatest cult classics of all time.
Ever wonder what happened to Jack and the monster in the back of his truck? What became of Mia Yin and Wang?
Did Egg convince his lawyer to believe in black magic?
All of these questions and many more are all answered beginning with issue #1 of The Jack Burton Adventures".
