Five Movie Trilogies That Flew Under The Radar

Published

on

When you think of film trilogies, several come to mind. Star Wars, Jurassic Park, and Lord of the Rings have all delivered phenomenal trilogies. Unfortunately, there are several great trilogies that don’t get the same kind of praise. We take a good look at some very underappreciated film trilogies.

The Three Colours Trilogy

Director Krzysztof Kieślowski used the French government as an inspiration for The Three Colours Trilogy. The three films each represent a different word in the French motto Liberté, égalité, fraternité (liberty, equality, fraternity). If that’s not enough, they use the colors of the French flag for movie titles (blue, white, red). The most successful film in this trilogy is Three Colors: Red, which earned three Oscar nominations.

The Jersey Trilogy

Kevin Smith’s entire filmography is based in his own View Askewniverse universe. The first three films (Clerks, Mallrats, Chasing Amy) are in their own world known as the Jersey Trilogy. Mallrats takes place one day before Clerks. Chasing Amy features Jay and Silent Bob, who were first seen in Clerks.

The Millennium Trilogy

The Millennium Trilogy is taken straight from author Stieg Larsson’s work on the Millennium book series. In 2009, Swedish company Yellow Bird unveiled all three films (The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, The Girl Who Played with Fire, and The Girl Who Kicked the Hornets’ Nest). These films made a star out of Noomi Rapace, who portrayed Lisbeth Salander.

El Mariachi Trilogy

2003’s Once Upon A Time In Mexico drew great box office numbers with nearly $100 million made. Many people don’t know it’s the conclusion of a trilogy that started in 1992 with El Mariachi. That film impressed Columbia Pictures enough for them to fund the second film in trilogy DesperadoEl Mariachi and Desperado made a combined $26 million at the box office.

Three Flavours Cornetto Trilogy

When director Edgar Wright released Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz, he wasn’t planning on making a trilogy. Both films featured a different flavor of Cornetto ice cream; Shaun has strawberry, and Hot Fuzz has blue. It wasn’t until a run in with a journalist that Wright decided to create a trilogy surrounding this delicious treat. “One journalist in the U.K. said, ”Is this going to be your theme as a trilogy?” and I said, ”Yes, it’s like Krzysztof Kieslowski’s Three Colors trilogy. This is the Three Flavors Cornetto trilogy,” he told Entertainment WeeklyThe World’s End, which concludes the trilogy, features green mint chocolate chip ice cream.
