The formula “the sequel is (almost always) worse than the original” applies for the most part to the artistic component of films, but when it comes to box office receipts, another one is formed, which can be defined as follows: “the sequel to a successful film (most often) collects more money than the original "

Since 2024 is the year of at least two big sequels - "Dune: Part Two" and "Joker: Madness for Two" - we decided to look at which second parts (specifically the second, and not the sequels in general) collected the most money worldwide rental And now, here are the top 10 sequels of all time.

???? — with this icon we will mark those cases when the second part raised more money than the first.

A continuation of the film “The Avengers” (2012), where Marvel superheroes save the world in full force.

2nd place - “Top Gun: Maverick” (2022)

Sequel to Top Gun (1986). The sequel's box office gap from the first part is simply colossal.

Box office: $1.495 billion ????

First part gross: $357 million

1st place - “Avatar: The Way of Water” (2022)

Sequel to the film "Avatar" (2009). The highest-grossing sequel of all time still could not outstrip its own first part in terms of box office receipts.

Box office: $2.320 billion

Bonus 11th place: “The Dark Knight” (2008)

Sequel to the film "Batman Begins" (2005).

Box office: $1.008 billion ????

First part gross: $373 million

We take this film to the top, since it is the 11th and last sequel in history, whose box office has exceeded $1 billion. All other second parts did not reach the seven-digit mark.

The second part of Dune is unlikely to move anyone up on this list, so we will wait for the sequel to Joker.
