Top 10 Films that You Didn't Know Were Sequels


The Top Ten

1 Prometheus

Many people we're wondering if this was connected to the Alien series, and it was confirmed by Ridley Scott that this film is actually a prequel to the entire series. This was made even more clear in the latest release Alien: Covenant - Mcgillacuddy

It's a prequel, not a sequel - PanteraForever

2 Split

Don't spoil it for those who haven't seen it! It's really good. - PanteraForever

It may look like a standalone film, but this film is actually a direct sequel to a much older film also made by M. Night Shamalayan called Unbreakable. - Mcgillacuddy

3 10 Cloverfield Lane

Considering how different it is from the 2008 film Cloverfield, many people who were familiar with the movie questioned whether or not this film was related in any way, but it is indeed a sequel - Mcgillacuddy

4 The Road Warrior

Everyone who is familiar with the Mad Max series should know that this was a sequel to the first film, but it originally wasn't that way. At the time of release, many people had no clue this was the case - Mcgillacuddy

5 The Dark Knight

You may not believe this, but at the time of release there were many people (including myself, actually) who didn't know this film was a sequel to Batman Begins, mostly thanks to a simple title change. Coincidentally enough, this series is referred to as the "Dark Knight Trilogy" because of the major success of the film. - Mcgillacuddy

6 Silence of the Lambs

With its high critical success and cult following, not many people knew that this was actually a sequel to Manhunter - Mcgillacuddy

7 Creed

9 Soldier

The developers referred to this movie as a "sidequel" to Blade Runner - Mcgillacuddy
