In the past week FUBAR have seen trailers been released for every single bloody film franchise that exists, from Transformers, Planet of the Apes, Spider-Man to Fast and Furious.
We’ve decided this is the perfect time to point out the franchises that need to end ASAP and begin the campaign to end the stream of shitty reboots and sequels. Let’s go…
5. Spider-Man, The Amazing Spider-Man & Spider-Man: Homecoming
It’s one thing when the franchise makes one too many sequels just as, in the case with Tobey Maguire’s Spiderman, but it’s another thing when it has too many reboots. Try 3 different Spider-Men in 15 years. Sigh.
With five films spanning 30 years, you think that would be enough breathing room for the Terminator franchise to get it right each time. Schwarzenegger’s return in 2015 made him the hero we thought we wanted but the hero we didn’t need.
You can’t deny that Michael Bay’s biggest franchise has been a commercial success but as we have learnt so far in this list, that does not necessarily equate to good quality films. Shia Labeouf’s departure from the franchise would’ve been a perfect time to call it quits, but no, as a Hollywood money making machine, Transformers took on a life of its own and kidnapped Mark Wahlberg to fill the Labeouf shaped hole in the wall.
2.Pirates of the Caribbean
The franchise is the most expensive ever made but also one of the highest grossing franchises ever. After the third film though, it seems Johnny Depp should’ve jumped ship with the rest of the cast, Orlando Bloom & Keira Knightley.
1. Fast & Furious
With the trailer for the 8th film (The Fate of the Furious) having been released in the past 24 hours, this film tops our list. Not only will the series not be the same after Paul Walker’s tragic death but how much more fast or furious can these people get? Not forgetting the stupid amount of stars they’re now piling into the franchise, starting with The Rock, Jason Statham and now Kurt Russell, the series has tired itself out and needs to be put to bed.
