If there’s one thing Hollywood loves, it’s a sequel. Even the worst sequels often wind up making a huge chunk of change at the box office, making it one of the most reliable genres—despite the fact that a “sequel” isn’t technically a genre of anything. But that doesn’t mean that every movie actually deserves one. We’ve pulled together a list of planned cinematic follow-ups we want to be shelved indefinitely.
- We’re The Millers 2
Nobody asked for 2013’s We’re the Millers in the first place, least of all the critics, which is why it’s sad that there are plans in place for a sequel. While the original made $150 million at the box office, does anyone actually remember what happened in that movie? On the bright side: there hasn’t been much talk of a sequel since it was first announced in 2014, meaning Warner Bros. may have finally fixed the gas leak in the building that prompted the sequel to be greenlit in the first place.
