Film Series

A film series is a collection of related films in succession. Their relationship is not fixed, but generally share a common diegetic world. Sometimes the work is conceived as a multiple-film work, for example the Three Colours series, but in most cases the success of the original film inspires further films to be made. Individual sequels are relatively common, but are not always successful enough to spawn further installments.

Harry Potter is the most commercially successful film series, surpassing the Star Wars and James Bond series while Peter Jackson's The Lord of the Rings has the highest average. The Wong Fei Hung film series is the longest film series with 89 films.

Famous quotes containing the words series and/or film:

    Life ... is not simply a series of exciting new ventures. The future is not always a whole new ball game. There tends to be unfinished business. One trails all sorts of things around with one, things that simply won’t be got rid of.
    Anita Brookner (b. 1928)

    All film directors, whether famous or obscure, regard themselves as misunderstood or underrated. Because of that, they all lie. They’re obliged to overstate their own importance.
    François Truffaut (1932–1984)
