Planned movie sequels that should be canceled
If there's one thing Hollywood loves more than simply being straight up handed massive wheelbarrows full of sweet box office cash, it's a sequel. Everyone complains about them, but the numbers don't like: even the worst franchise follow-ups often wind up making a huge chunk of change in theaters and on home video, which means that no matter how many times we all say we hate sequels, making one remains one of a studio's most reliably safe bets. Of course, even the safest bet falls through sometimes, and there are plenty of examples of sequels that ended up turning out to be a horrible investment for the studio. The simple truth is that no matter how lucrative they often are, not every movie actually deserves a sequel—and to their credit, execs occasionally come to this realization before the whole thing comes crashing down at the box office. With that in mind, we've pulled together a list of planned cinematic follow-ups we want to be shelved indefinitely.
