Hugh: These Are the Movies That Need Sequels, According to the Internet
Written by Hugh Campbell on June 7, 2023
These days, it seems like almost every other movie is either a remake or a sequel. It makes sense that building off of an already-existing franchise is a safe call for risk-adverse studios, but there are only so many Transformers movies someone can have an appetite for. There are also a few fan-favourite movies that never spawned sequels, but make good candidates for a follow-up movie. So, Ranker asked the internet which movies need sequels and an interesting list emerged. Some of the movies that were named (Beetlejuice at #2, Hocus Pocus at #14) either have sequels that have already come out or are in the works, and there are a few I personally think are better left as stand-alone movies, but many of the votes identified movies that are prime candidates for a return. Check out the top ten poll results below and let us know what you think.
- Edge of Tomorrow
- Alita: Battle Angel
- The Fifth Element
- Van Helsing
- District 9
