If you found out there was a second part to your favorite movie, would you watch it? Many of these famous films spawned sequels, only to be forgotten for being nothing like the first installment.
That said, sequels are not as good and perhaps for this reason, many people are unaware that their favorite movies have sequels. Although The Godfather II, Spider-Man 2, Back to the Future 2 and The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers have been equally or more famous than their predecessors, others have not achieved as much, and as a result they Has been forgotten. ,
What would you think if we told you there was a sequel to Mean Girls or a sequel to Titanic (even though the ship has already sunk)? When a movie is very successful, it is natural that studios decide to make sequels to try to repeat or surpass the first parts. The problem is that some films do not have the same impact, so they are not liked by the public. These are eight movies that had sequels that you probably didn’t know about.
Titanic is one of the most famous films, and although practically everyone knows about it, few people know that James Cameron’s film also has a second part. Although not an official sequel, Titanic 2 does exist and takes place 100 years after the sinking of the first ship, which could cause history to repeat itself.
Mean Girls is an iconic movie, and practically everyone knows the unforgettable phrases from the film. Now with the arrival of the new version, many viewers have become aware of the existence of a sequel: Mean Girls 2 where a famous Mexican actor appears.
Grease is a classic musical of which versions still exist today in all kinds of formats, even in the theater scene. The sequel, Grease 2, starred Michelle Pfeiffer and Maxwell Caulfield. Although it’s not a terrible film, it fails to appeal on the same level as its predecessor.
Cruel Intentions is one of those movies of the nineties that influenced many teenagers and youth. Starring Reese Witherspoon, Ryan Phillippe and Sarah Michelle Gellar in lead roles, Cruel Intentions depicts a group of wealthy young people who engage in a dangerous game of seduction. Cruel Intentions 2 didn’t work with the public, so almost no one remembers it.
Released in 1962, Bambi’s Mouse House is one of the classics that, like many other Disney animated films, has traumatized its young audiences. 64 years later comes Bambi 2 where the little deer continues his adventures after the death of his mother, and learns to be more independent with the help of his father.
Dirty Dancing is one of those films that marked the eighties with two stars: Patrick Swayze and Jennifer Grey. Achieving the same level of success was too great a challenge for Dirty Dancing 2 to fail to achieve. However the only redeeming thing was the presence of Diego Luna in the 2004 film.
‘2001: A Space Odyssey’
2001: A Space Odyssey is considered one of the best films in cinema history, a title that may be difficult to achieve with a sequel. Stanley Kubrick’s films continued with 2010: The Year We Made Contact, which tells of a space expedition aimed at finding an astronaut who disappeared in 2001.
Although it is one of Disney’s most controversial films, Pocahontas revolutionized the film by introducing the first princess of Native American descent to the House of Mouse. In Pocahontas 2, the heroic character travels to Europe where she becomes an “Ambassador of Peace” after learning of John Smith’s supposed death.
