Some sequels are great and most are terrible. The first movie sequel ever produced was way back in 1916, however, it wasn't until the 70's that a number or Roman Numeral were used in a title. Sequels = money. Which is why Hollywood likes them so much.
Lots of big movie sequels scheduled for 2015: Star Wars 7, Avengers 2, Avatar 2, Jurassic World, Terminator 5, Man of Steel 2, Ted 2, etc.— Ray William Johnson (@RayWJ) September 11, 2013
Movie goers seem to feel differently.
Im getting sick of all these stupid horror movie sequels. Every Halloween, it's either Saw 17, Paranormal Activity 9, and now Insidious 2!— Dave Brytus (@BrytusOfficial) September 11, 2013
Here's something that bugs me. Movie sequels were you must have seen the first to just understand the second. It should be self-contained!— Seán (@swift_exit) September 13, 2013
Movie executives should stop putting out terrible sequels and instead release original films without Nick Cage.— Reed Murray (@reedmurray) September 13, 2013
I don't even feel bad for citizens who get killed in these superhero movie sequels. Why do you still live in this city in the sequel?— Nate (@NateDieselFuel) September 13, 2013
According to this list of 50 upcoming movie sequels, we have a lot of movies to look forward to...making fun of such as Beetlejuice 2, Bridget Jones's Baby and Indiana Jones 5. There's no guarantee that these movies will ever actually be made or released but we know that someone spent a lot of time and money in a Starbucks writing them.
Are you excited about Jurassic World?
