The power of the film franchise is in evidence this week with the third installment of Transformers: Dark of the Moon debuting with the biggest take of 2011 at US$43.2 million (RM129.84 million) in its opening night.
Also, the fourth Pirates of the Caribbean film, On Stranger Tides, is poised to break the US$1 billion mark.

Despite blockbusters’ bulging budgets, the built-in audience means less risk and a big potential payoff. Green Lantern, which has earned a modest US$123.8 million since June 17, will get a sequel and a new director. Thor 2 will also part with director Kenneth Branagh, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Sequels for Sherlock Holmes, Mission: Impossible, Happy Feet, Paranormal Activity and Spy Kids are coming in 2011.

Here is a list of upcoming sequels for 2012:

“¢ Wrath of the Titans (Clash of the Titans sequel) returns in March in 3D again, starring Sam Worthington, Liam Neeson and Ralph Fiennes.

“¢ Men in Black 3 is back next May after a decade with Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones fighting aliens.

“¢ Prometheus, Ridley Scott’s prequel to Alien, the series’s fifth installment, has a new cast including Michael Fassbender and Charlize Theron, arriving in June.
