Below is a list of failed sequels for 2016, sequels that earned significantly less than the original or previous film.
- Kung Fu Panda 3
- Ride Along 2
- Zoolander 2
- Teenage Mutant Ninja Turles Out of the Shadows
- Alice Through the Looking Glass
- X-Men Apocalypse
- Huntsman Winter’s War
- Divergent series Allegiant
- Neighbors 2
Considering this is June, this is a fair amount of failed sequels. I might have forgotten one. So does this mean anything? And if so, what does it mean? Is it really that different from last year?
I am not sure it means anything. Each movie might have failed for different reasons. Neighbors 2 might have failed because people just didn’t want to see a second movie with those characters. Ride Along 2 might have failed because Kevin Hart is making a lot of films and even his fans didn’t love the original.
There were some failed sequels in 2015. Maybe there we not as many but there were some.
