Has there ever been a hit movie that led to a sequel that bombed really bad. Then for some reason they made another sequel and that third movie was also a hit.
I ask as I was watching an interview with Olivia Newton-John.
They asked her about Grease III. She seemed a bit taken back. The interviewer said, he knew it was being worked on as a project and would she be in it. She said, If John Travolta would be in it, she would also agree.
Whether this is bunk or not I don’t know but it got me to thinking about the question.
Grease was a big hit, Grease II was a big bomb. So I was thinking, was there ever a movie that was a hit, so they made a sequel to it and it was a big bomb. Then they tried for a third sequel and it was a big hit.
I am not a movie person and I know hit and bombs can be relative terms, but I thought I’d ask
