Hollywood’s motto seems to be: if at first you don’t succeed, try, try again… and forget about any mistakes in the middle. Here are our Top 3 Action Sequels That Ignored Previous Movies In The Franchise.
At number three, it’s ‘Superman Returns’. Director Bryan Singer was a big fan of ’Superman’ and ‘Superman II’. So he paid no attention to parts 3 and 4, when he decided to revive the franchise 19 years later.
On the second place we find ‘Terminator: Dark Fate’. In 2019, the rights to this sci-fi series reverted to its creator, James Cameron. He brought back original star Linda Hamilton and produced a new chapter that discarded the three films he wasn’t involved with.
And our top spot goes to ‘Halloween’. There were six movies in this horror series when ‘Halloween H20’ ignored all but the first two. Then there were remakes made of the first two films. Followed by one simply titled ‘Halloween’, which was a new sequel, but only to the original flick.
