What are the best movies that need a sequel but did not get one?

When a certain movie makes it big in the box office, it is almost automatic for its creators to think of a sequel, that is if there is none prepared yet. However, some franchise continuations fail to match the high-grossing ability and cinematic impact of their predecessors. Making a certain part two for an uber-successful flick has its risks. If it happens to pan out as a hit, then there could very well be a part three or more. While the gap from the arrival of movie sequels from the original's release may span a very long time, it can surely bring lots of success. Well, not a lot of movie franchises can duplicate The Godfather's film timeline, which only needed 30 months to create a second masterpiece. One can always look at the Star Wars films and see that a franchise's success can be sustained even after a long movie hiatus.

If the fans do demand a continuation from a certain film, then such shall certainly be considered. However, a lot of movies have seemingly left fans with tons of unanswered questions by way of its open-ended nature. Some though, are just probably too good to be limited by a single release. The truth is, no matter how good a film may be, there can always be alternatives that fans can turn to when left hanging. Still, what a great treat it would be for fans to receive a sequel of their favorite movies. In this list, we have some of the best movies that need a sequel but did not get one. Check it out to see if your favorite one makes the cut. Who knows, maybe we can still get that much-needed part two after a few years.

    "That was such a good film. I actually expected an Inception 2 until a few years back but its been 10 years and there's no news. That ending definitely made everyone think a sequel was coming"
