Top 10 Sequels You Didn’t Know Were Sequels

Take a look at this list of movies that are sequels but you wouldn’t know it! We’ve chosen movies that hid their sequel-ness – whether intentionally or not – either due to a change in scenery, actors, style, title or other elements. We’ll be excluding “The Silence of the Lambs,” since it’s not actually a sequel to “Manhunter,” but a standalone film that happens to be the second movie to feature Hannibal Lecter. Similarly, we’ve left out spin-offs, even if they’ve also been called sequels, such as “This Is 40” and “Get Him to the Greek,” as well as franchise films from series like James Bond and the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
