30 Movie Franchises That Started But Never Finished
Escape From New York
Escape from New York is a 1981 sci-fi film whose premise was that New York City had been converted into a maximum security prison. When the Air Force One crashed into the prison-island, protagonist Snake Plissken is given a day to rescue him. The cult classic film received good enough reviews for it to get a sequel, Escape From L.A.. In what is a tale as old as time, the sequel bombed, and plans to round out the series into a trilogy never came to be.
