Let's hope so. But any sequel will face numerous significant hurdles, any one of which could easily derail its development. At the moment most are too far off to worry about. But there is one immediate and unavoidable one: even cracking the door open for a sequel depends on this S&A being a (substantial) commercial success. No movie gets made without finance, and nobody is going to finance a sequel to a failure.
Box office success is very dependent on the opening weekend return. If a movie does well at the start, then the cinemas will keep it on more screens and there's time for word of mouth to build an audience. If it performs poorly, then they'll pull it in favour of something else. So, if you want to see a movie of one of the other AR books - or even keep alive the chance of one - it makes sense to go to see it during the opening weekend, and encourage as many other people as possible to do likewise.
