24 Sequels Nobody Asked For (And How They Turned Out)

by | March 22, 2016 | Comments

Meanwhile…Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice isn’t the only sequel coming out this week! Nia Vardalos and her Portokalos brood are back with a big family secret in the follow-up to My Big Fat Greek Wedding,  a word-of-mouth smash that made hundreds of millions of dollars when it was first released. But we’re a long ways away from 2002 now and just how much demand for a sequel was built up in-between? This question inspires this week’s gallery: 24 sequels nobody asked for (and how they turned out)!

  • Lisa Nice Weed(Don’t Blame Me)


  • Concerned..

    Fast and Furious Tokyo Drift.. My favorite Fast & Furious believe it or not.

  • Mike Magnum

    Actually i like 2010 better than 2001. At least there was more too it then watching Monkey masturbating, shit floating in space and a 30 minutes acid trip. Not to mention that 2010 expanded on Hal. The only real character in 2001. Because the human characters are made out of cardboard. And shows it was really the humans that fucked up. Not Hal.

    • Crewcrusher

      2010: by the numbers movie for simple minds.

      • Jack Smith

        I know, Because your mind must be enhanced by pot to really get 2001.

        • rainman19

          I watched 2001 in Cinerama and again a decade later while very high on pot.

          No discernible difference, really. Both good, but…

          That’s either faint praise for pot, or great praise for 2001.

        • Derek

          You’re an idiot.

      • Barbara Kirk

        2010: The Movie Tony Banks was dropped from as I think of it!

      • Hank Murphy

        Oh please. That is so arrogant.

    • Hank Murphy

      I could not agree more.

  • Is there an article I’m not seeing, or is this just a list of images? If so, it’d be nice to have at least a few sentences about each one, since I’m not familiar with many of them. Some were good, some were bad, and it’d be nice to know which is which.

    I thought 2010 was pretty good, but I’m a big Clarke fan. (I read all the books before I saw the movies.) And I thought French Connection 2 and US Marshalls were pretty good as well.

    • Crewcrusher

      2001 was a movie before it was a book. (Clarke & Kubrick collaborated on the story during the film).

    • Bill_Beckham

      If you were a Clarke fan, you would know that ACC wrote the book after pinning the script.

    • Nick Stadler

      I was only seeing an image slideshow too, and needed to extended the browser to “full screen” mode in order to see the article part of this.

      • Grokenstein

        It’s a bug they refuse to fix.

    • TheGuineaPig45

      You just click on the images, and there are notes about them.

    • It’s a weird setup, but click on the first pic and slide show will start, with text on the right.

      And to those saying the 2001 movie was first, Bevans didn’t say the book came first [though movie WAS based on Clarke story ‘The Sentinal’], only that “I READ” the books first.

      • Rune

        No Text on ordinary aspect ratio monitors. Maybe if you’re on a widescreen.

        • That’s pretty bad design.

          I’m on widescreen (do they even make 4:3 monitors anymore?) but I don’t keep my browser window maximized.

          • Lincoln Maurice

            I’d imagine the aspect ratio issue would be a problem on a smartphone too.

      • Night of the Lepus

        Don’t click. Joel is lying, if you click a virus will infest your life

  • grumpygramma

    U.S Marshals was great!

  • Grokenstein

    I didn’t know we were supposed to ask for sequels.

    • Alex W

      These days if you pay to see a movie in theatres, the producers will take that as you asking for a sequel.

    • William Nelsen

      Unfortunately you must have asked for more My Little Pony, you pretty much knocked right on their door and asked for more clop material.

      • Grokenstein

        Dayamn boi, u edgy.
        Now knock my socks off with some “autism” and/or “sperg” references.

  • Alex Flores

    Cats and Dogs 2 and nobody asked for the original either.

    • William Nelsen

      Well it’s a kids movie anyway. Both of them. I liked the first but I was like 10. No interest in the second as an adult. No interest in rewatching the first either. Adults don’t generally think up fantasies about seeing a movie meant for kids. Parents are just happy there is something that has been made that is meant for their kids to watch. There are exceptions to this sometimes of course, like a lot of Disney movies (the PG-13 ones they make now don’t apply) end up being liked by adults too, but kids were the primary audience for most of them.

  • Bryan Hernandez

    For the people that don’t see anything (In the mobile version) tap on one of te pictures to begin the slide show, I say tap on Mad Max since it’s the first slide.

  • Helmyy Kkuerniakediri

    nice masters thanks

    >thansk very much sir<

  • aNYagenda

    I dont recognize all of those, but the ones I do are all abominations except for Return to Oz which was actually pretty awesome.

    And Color of Money was okay, not Scorsese’s finest.
    But I’ve seen worse, and I’ve even seen worse by Scorsese.
    (Pretty much everything he’s done after Casino.)

  • Both MAD MAX:FURY ROAD and TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE 2 were very much welcomed,while all of the others(including the very unwanted MY BIG FAT GREEK WEDDING 2) obviously made to cash in on the original films(ala the unwanted remakes of the last 15 to 18 years),although director Robin Hardy admitted that part of why he made THE WICKER TREE was out of revenge against the original film’s producers and various film distributors that he strongly felt destroyed the original cut of his 1973 classic(and its full originally intended impact).

  • Ron Swanson

    You forgot 22 jump street.

  • OK, I agree “another stakeout” my gosh who could have wanted that, but many of the movies on this list are not just good but great, and the entire world wanted another Mad Max.. Jeezzz !

  • potus

    While I agree that Another Stakeout was one of the worst films ever made, (Though it does showcase exactly why Rosie O’Donnell never had much of a movie career as an actress) the original Stakeout was actually a pretty really funny buddy movie – but probably because it was completely Rosie O’Donnell-less.

  • Lincoln Maurice

    By “no one” asking for a sequel, you’d have to be joking about Mad Max?
