5 Movies That Should Have Started Major Franchises
Two of the best movie franchises of all time have to be either “Back To The Future” or “Star Wars”. Think about it, you could watch these movies 10,000 times and still love it. However, not every movie is a franchise. Some movies designed to be franchises sucked so bad, they were lucky to have one. Here's a few from our friends at Uncoached.com:
Howard the Duck (1986)
The description from IMDB: A sarcastic humanoid duck is pulled from his homeworld to Earth where he must stop an alien invader. If you can't tell why this was a flop, this story isn't for you. However, a pretty major cast on board this film sadly.
I remember as a kid from the 90's the toys from this movie were so awesome. However, Godzilla from the 90's wasn't able to capture the cinema magic like Godzilla from the 1960's.
Wild Wild West (1999)
This movie had everything going for it: Will Smith, Guns, Will Smith, cool inventions, and did I mention Will Smith? I remember wearing the "Wild Wild West" sunglasses from Burger King, I thought I was so cool, and so fly.
The Hulk (2003)
They tried doing the Incredible Hulk in 2008, but still an angry flop. This was just a horrible movie all around.
Dude, Where's My Car? (2000)
I had to add this one to the list. Maybe it wasn't designed to become a franchise, but they tried their best to make catch phrases like “Dude” and “Sweet” stick. Just never did. Only positive, this was one of the first movies for Jennifer Garner's career.
