Desperate Movie Sequels - How Far Will Film Franchises Go?

Tags: Film and Movies

After the release of Fast and the Furious 7, yes, seven, a lot of people have been wondering how long the film franchise can go on. If box office figures are anything to go by, there will definitely be an 8th film. Probably a 9th, too. 

Of course, many films run their natural course over more than just a single showing - Lord of the Rings, Star Wars and The Hunger Games to name but a few - but some seem to simply be created to milk out just a bit more money. 

We've came up with a range of desperate movie sequels that truly would be the definition of 'milking it':

Harry Potter and the Flimsy Excuse for a Sequel

Harry Potter 8

"Don't worry, that ginger lad is still in it. Dumbledore is in a flashback scene for like 30 minutes, it's padding really, but you'll bloody love it. There's a cameo from Gandalf too - he's a wizard, right? I can't imagine for a minute that you're actually reading this. If you are, tell Dave he owes me twenty quid."

Toy Story 9

"At some point, Tom Hanks is going to get bored, right? Do you remember when Disney bought these guys out and said they wouldn't just make sequels? That was a load of codswallop wasn't it. At least it's not another 'Cars' movie, I don't know if I could take another one of those. Don't miss the scene where Etch-A-Sketch just writes "help me" on his screen over and over again."

Starring: Steve Buscemi.

"At first it was funny, I mean 80's films were amazing, right? Then there was the second one, where Chuck Norris was in it briefly. I thought he was just an internet meme, but apparently he's a real person. I guess somebody probably saw the third one? Oh who am I kidding, if they were all Nicolas Cage, I'd be at the premiere."

"Laurence Fishburne hasn't been up to much lately, has he? He played a nut-job in that 'Predators' film I suppose. That one where Adrian Brody pretended to be an action hero - he's not exactly Schwarzenegger is he. Anyway, that's besides the point, Keanu's shaved his beard off for this - so that's something. You think you want this film, but really, afterwards you're just going to wish he'd done another 'Bill and Ted' instead - that would have been so much better."

Needless to say, these films aren't actually available and were completed as part of a 'for-fun' project by Superfi. If you're here looking for something to new to play on your home cinema system then you're going to have to go to Netflix unfortunately! However, you're more than welcome to share these pictures around the internet as you please.
