To state the obvious, movies are expensive to make. So Hollywood rarely takes chances on projects that aren't essentially a sure thing. That explains why sequels to already-successful movies are so common, particularly when it comes to the sci-fi genre. A lot of the marketing heavy lifting has already been done by the previous movies, and fans can rely on seeing their favorite characters return.
But not all sequels are a guaranteed success, and some just plain aren't happening. Maybe the last franchise entry turned out to be a flop, rights issues gummed up production, cast members moved on, or a script just never came together. Here are the real reasons these sci-fi movies never got sequels.
