11. Frost/Nixon (2008)
Another unofficial sequel, Ron Howards’s 2008 biopic Frost/Nixon can be read as a sequel to Oliver Stone’s 1995 film about the 37th President of the United States. Nixon, which starred Anthony Hopkins in the title role, ended with the President’s resignation in 1974 and this is the very scene that Frost/Nixon opens with, as Michael Sheen’s David Frost is shown watching the event on television. Fittingly, both Hopkins and Frank Langella, who plays Nixon in the “sequel,” were nominated for a Best Actor Oscar for their portrayal of Richard Nixon.
10. U.S. Marshals (1998)
A sequel to the movie The Fugitive, U.S. Marshals follows Tommy Lee Jones as he reprises his role as U.S. Marshal Sam Gerard. But instead of continuing his relentless pursuit of Harrison Ford’s character from The Fugitive, Gerard has a new target, played by Wesley Snipes, who is on the trail of an international conspiracy scandal.
Even though U.S. Marshals was deemed a commercial success, it didn’t come anywhere close to critical acclaim that its predecessor had, with many reviews citing its lack of tension and suspense when compared to The Fugitive.

9. This is 40 (2012)
This movie is more like half a sequel and half a spin-off to Judd Apatow’s 2007 movie Knocked Up. This Is 40 follows the lives of married couple Pete (Paul Rudd) and Debbie (Leslie Mann), who were supporting characters in the first film, as they each approach their 40th birthdays. It mostly deals with the pair coping with all the issues and emotions that surround getting older.
Apatow has been reluctant to make direct sequels to his movies in the past, but in a few interviews he’s talked about doing a sequel to This is 40 that would shift the focus from married couple Pete and Debbie, and instead center around their teenage daughter Sadie, who was played by Apatow’s daughter Maude.
