Unreleased films

Dear All,

I used to be a very frequent visitor to the org back between maybe 02 and 07, not that I can remember my old username. I think I have lurked for a decade - It's so nice to see so many old 'faces' still about! Anyway.

I, like all of you have been thinking very much about the contents of the vault and am increasingly concerned for the welfare of what is (hopefully not was) in there.

My question is, what full or maybe partially filmed movies or long forms exist or may exist in there that we know of? And does anyone know the story lines attributed?

All I can think of is:

*The second coming

*3121 (does anyone remember a clip of this maybe a decade ago of Prince walking down a street and with a little kid, perhaps a basketball was involved)I feel sure I am not inventing this. Remembering the CD said 'the music' leads me to believe this was a real intention to make a film. Also, te amo corazon was directed by salma hayek (?) and was quite a beautiful clip, does anyone know if this was to tie in with the film a storyline perhaps or was this a one off?

*Appolonia(??) mentioned a purple rain 2 could this be the 3121 film?

Also recently I viewed a film called the hard life or a title along those lines perhaps directed by Prince - what's the story on this?

Any input would be appreciated, a very enquiring mind awaits!

Thank you for your time.

Princevault has no info on this. So not really a good source.

There is an unreleased symbol album era IMAX concert film that I'm apparently the only one who remembers hearing about.

There are innumerable quantities of astonishing gems and presents yet to be unearthed, concealed and secreted away in the vault.

There is a trailer leaked years ago from 3121 the movie.
At one point it was renamed Lotusflow3r and it was going to be on that 77$ site,but it was pulled off at the last moment.

Kevin Smith did some film work for him too that is probably in the vault somewhere. Kevin has a funny video out on YouTube with him talking about that experience.

I'd like to see some of the videos of the pranks that went on - I've heard about footage of an interview w/ a local reporter where Prince had Bobby & Matt stage a fight while the interview was taking place. That's gotta be hilarious.

The thread is about films rather than videos promoting specific songs.

3121 looks like his usual format... Music videos, interspersed with confused girls arriving at his house, looking for him, and him somewhere else rehearsing. smile

Well The Second Coming is unfinished, the guy who shot the non concert stuff still has it. Prince only bouggt the concert footage back and that was in the 2000's

You never know whats finished and what isn't

there would be no market at all for this stuff, so we'll probably never see it
