10 Movie Sequels Decades in the Making
Posted 05.25.12 by reelz
Let's be honest for a moment: Sequels are all about money. Sure, they can be artistically satisfying at times, but for the most part it's the studios realizing that you really liked a flick, and that you'd probably be willing to shell out to see something similar. As a result, sequels usually get the greenlight as soon as the studios are relatively sure that the original is a blockbuster, at which point they're rushed into production before you forget that the franchise exists.
Every now and then, though, a sequel gets made long after the original. Such is the case with Men in Black III, arriving a solid fifteen years after Men in Black made us love the humorous exploits of the Agents J and K... And 10 years after Men in Black II made us question whether we were too quick to judge. We decided to weigh in on which ones were worth the wait (hint: not many) and which were blatant cash grabs that should've been left in the past.
