Two more to add to the list; the Golden Compass and The Last Airbender.

Both fully justified in not having sequels.

Golden Compass should definately be in there and I disagree with previous post. I really enjoyed it. I beg the question will we get a Prometheus sequel?

Godzilla and Lost in Space are both candidates for this category too - thankfully neither got their sequel. The summer of 1998 really was rotten for films.

The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy and A Series of Unfortunate Events are both based on the first entries of a series of books and both gave the impression that sequels would follow but never did.

Plus Ang Lee's Hulk never saw its sequel, and we got only a reboot.

A sea monster movie made by Stephen Sommers (before he made a franchise that DID get sequels) that tries so hard to be Aliens its ridiculous. And ends like it then wants to be King Kong for the (never happened) sequel it seemed.

PS: You can be certain Green Lantern will be one to add to this list too.

Arguably better than Benedict, Nicholas Rowe is Holmes! Post credits the supposedly dead baddie signs into a hotel as Moriarty. Also known for one of the first Pixar animations, the stained glass window that comes to life.

Yes, its been mentioned. but surely there has to be a sequel for this? Huge budget yes, badly reviewed yes, but its in the black ist it? It was a silly film, but it makes no sense without a follow up, and, as it stands, it literally has no ending. A shame for a film that was actually seen by a lot of people.
I mean, a polar bear gets its jaw bashed off....who doesnt want to see similar to that again?!
And The Last Airbender.....that film was just wrong.

I'm also surprised they didn't mention The Golden Compass. They tore out the original ending with the intention of placing it in the second film... Idiots....

Not *really* sequel-baiting when films are based on a series of books, now is it?

I too am surprised there in no mention of TGC. It's the first film I thought of when I seen the title of the article.

The Golden Compass had the audacity and self belief that they were getting a sequel and just finished 2.5 hours into a really crappy story. So glad there was no sequel.

Max Payne 2 could happen; just becuase you're pretending it won't, doesn't mean it'll happen EMPIRE.

I read the entire article waiting for this and it wasn't there: Ash magically transported to a post apocalyptic (and expensive to film) future!
We did get the special ending tagged on at the end but, great as that was, this film still perfectly fits into the list above... except the fact that it's quite popular and people would probably actually watch a sequel, unlike the rest of this dross.
