Franchise Film-making (Week 5 Bibliography)

Agar, Chris. “Spoiler Alert: Is Franchise Filmmaking Killing Dramatic Tension?” Screen Rant, Screen Rant, 22 Sept. 2013, screenrant.com/dramatic-tension-in-franchise-filmmaking/2/.

This is really the perfect approach to running a film franchise. In any film – regardless of the genre – we should live vicariously through the primary characters, learning things as they learn them. At the point when the motion picture starts, they (the characters) have no clue on the off chance that they'll live to see one more day, so for what reason should the people know? By taking things one motion picture at once, it powers the group of onlookers to end up noticeably putting more attention into that specific film. Regardless of whether good judgment directs, the "franchise" will go ahead, in the back of our psyches there's one little idea: "They haven't authoritatively reported the continuation… consider the possibility that there isn't one. Imagine a scenario in which this is it?" There's no law that says each film franchise must be no less than three motion pictures.

For the hatred that exists for megabudget establishments in certain film groups, studios have turned out to be progressively subject to them as of late, all things considered. In 2015, Jurassic World broke the "extended weekend, make a big appearance" record in the US with $208 million, just to see that record smashed again before the finish of the year by Star Wars: The Force Awakens' $248 million presentation. A look at the postings of the 20 most highest-netting movies ever uncovers that now, half of them were released in the previous decade. Eight of them were released inside the previous five years, so far as that is concerned.
