You know what’s a cool word? “Trilogy.” It feels cool to use the word trilogy, to refer to something as a trilogy. It represents something that is complete, something that consists of several parts that build to one whole, something (for lack of a better, or at least less used, term) epic. You know this, I know this, but movie studios especially know this. I imagine there are few feelings better in the movie industry than knowing you created a successful film trilogy, and that’s probably because actually making three successful films in one series is such a hard thing to do. Many have tried to make a great film trilogy, and while some have failed (or come up just short of success), there are certainly others that have triumphed.
