Film trilogies are everywhere in the cinematic world. Whether they’re planned from the beginning or are a result of commercial popularity, film trilogies are big business. They’re great for the fans that get to follow the adventures of their favourite characters for more than one film, and they also rake in the money for the big movie studios. There are so many film franchises out there, but these are just a few of the more popular film trilogies around.
1. The Lord of the Rings Trilogy
Based on the popular books by J.R.R. Tolkien, The Lord of the Rings is one of the most popular film trilogies of recent times. The books themselves are quite epic, so it made sense that the story was told over three films. ‘The Fellowship of the Ring,’ ‘The Two Towers’ and ‘The Return of the King’ were released over a period of three years and followed Frodo’s quest to save Middle Earth from imminent doom.
