Trilogies that you say every entry in theater


I can only think of 3 that I’ve seen:

- The Dark Knight (Love it)
- Austin Powers (Ehhhh OK)
- Star Wars Sequels (WTF was I thinking?)

3 original Star Wars and the 3 Indiana Jones.

reply

Spiderman
The Dark Knight
Star Wars Sequels

There are probably others I'm forgetting.

reply

The Lord of the Rings
The Dark Knight
Blade
Spider-Man
Rush Hour
Star Wars Prequels

I mean I saw all 3 parts of Lord of the Rings but it’s not a trilogy so I didn’t include it.

reply

Just curious, why do you say LOTR is not a trilogy?

reply

It only tells one story, the 3 pieces are nothing without the others. In the trilogies I listed the individual pieces can stand on their own.

reply

I think a trilogy is generally based on a continuing story, with a beginning, a middle and a grand finale.

Star Wars OT and LOTR would not make much sense if you only watched one movie.

Those are classic trilogies.

reply

Right but with Star Wars each entry tells it’s own story even though there is also an overarching narrative. That’s not the case with Lord of the Rings, there’s only an overarching narrative, it’s just one film chopped up into 3 pieces.

Ok, good explanation👍

reply

THAT IS A FAIR POINT.🤔

Star Wars.

LOTR.

The Matrix.

And much to my regret, the first 3 "Pirates of the Caribbean". The 2nd movie was great, but sheesh!

reply

The first one was a masterpiece. The only one I saw in the theater.

reply

The Saw franchise if you exclude that stupid movie with Chris Rock.

reply

Blade
TDK
LOTR
Scream (it was a trilogy, until they decided to make a 4th one 11 years later)

reply

Star Wars. But the 1990s re-releases. So they were the 'Special Editions'. Booooooo.
The Dark Knight.
And, ah, I've seen Ray's Apu Trilogy in the cinema, and the Three Colours Trilogy all in the cinema -- that last one all in the same day, when the local arthouse cinema had a Kieslowski marathon...

... and, I think that's it for seeing complete trilogies on the big screen.

Edit: Forgot one -- Back to the Future.

Alien (First three)
