    If Hollywood studios can make a franchise out of a property, you can bet it's gonna happen. Some become huge hits, like Fast & Furious and John Wick. But every once in awhile, things just don't work out, and there's no choice but to shut down production and move on - even if the story hasn't reached its conclusion. Here are a few movie franchises that ended before their final chapter...
    Eragon | 0:22
    Sahara | 1:26
    John Carter | 2:17
    Percy Jackson | 3:17
    I Am Number Four | 4:14
    Divergent | 4:58
    Ender's Game | 5:53

      Ender's Game. Loved that movie. One of my favorite soundtracks as well.
      I Am Number Four would be my second choice. Another cool movie that could only have gotten better in sequels.

    Divergent should've being a trilogy, the studio were greedy. From all those franchises, Enders Game was a great loss. Percy Jackson was trash.

    Eragon, Percy Jackson, Enders game etc etc. they flopped because they strayed way to far from the books and original content. The stuff that made it good. And decided to replace the original content and depth with garbage fillers for plot and characters

    John Carter... Movie was good, marketing was soo bad. I wonder if they even did some actual marketing. In Japan the trailer wasn't shown until about like a week before the opening. So if you didn't visit the theaters for 2 weeks you'd miss it. I was just lucky the theater was on my way home.

    The reason ender's game never got any sequel is because there really isn't any source material for it. Yes there are multiple books that continue the story but the genres of them change drastically making it unsuitable for a franchise. The sci-fi action ends where the movie ends.

    If the Incredible Hulk and Spider-Man can be revamped and remade I don’t see why Eragon can’t be redone with better production. But fox always messes stuff up so they would need to sell the rights to Warner or Universal.

    It would be interesting to rank these financial disasters by the differences between the film and the original source material, typically a book with an existing fan base. I have this feeling that the larger the difference, the more likely it is that it will be a disaster.

    Forgot to mention that one common fault in these instances is when the director for reasons that I cannot fathom decides to part so widely from the story in the books that the remaining books cannot be filmed; this contributes significantly to discontent among the existing fan base and poor box office response.

    Anne Rice's Vampire Chronicles (Interview with the Vampire, The Vampire Lestat, etc.) deserved a better sequel than the "Queen of the Damned" dumpster fire we got! A stand alone "Vampire Lestat" movie, that was closer to the book, rather than trying to fit two or three books into one movie, would have been much better.

    Percy Jackson movie casting wasn't all too great imho. Also they should have collaborated with the book series author just like in Harry Potter. Might have been better if they did.
    Ender's Game is amazing but it's too sad they didn't make a sequel. 😞

    Ender's Game would have made money if it was in 3D, but it was in Monochromatic 2D, so they shot themselves in the foot.
    Disney can make sequels to movies like Narnia & Percy Jackson & Alien Covenant because they recently bought 20th Century Fox.
    Also, why can't they just do $40 million budget with lots of advertising. Theres nothing wrong with a $10 to $40 million budget, especially now of days. Just make sure to advertise & market the crap out of it, so it builds up enough hype to make a minimum of $97 to $400 million in the box office at worst case scenario, but they have to be in 3D & 4DX & MX4D to make money in the box office, for example; both Power Rangers (2K17) & Alien Covenant made $140 million in box office as "Monochromatic 2D" movies, but Tom Cruise "The Mummy & Prometheus made $400 million in the box office as "Stereoscopic 3D" in 3D & 4D screenings.

    Ender's game was great and you need to read the series if you haven't ready. If you don't like to read, it's available on audio book. Great for a long road trip.
    The other books get very deep and complex, but would probably be very difficult to make into a movie. So much happens, so much time travel and evolutions of species and characters.

    Some part of me would love to see more of Ender's Game: the thing that really rankles me about the movie though is that everybody worked so hard to find somebody who could think outside the box; and then when things hit a crux-point they refused to let him think for himself and told him "just do what we tell you" which ran completely contrary to the whole story plot. I haven't read the book but I understand the book makes this same mistake. While reinforcing how much of a screw-up this all was by having our hero find out that he really sacrificed every single person he cared about to win a war his instincts told him he didn't need to fight but he fought anyways because he just did what he was told.

    ‘Enders’ Game’ - if you read the eponymous book and its sequels you may well have considered the film to have been a sad and mangled thing. That and Ben Kingsley apparently mistaking a Kiwi accent for South African killed that one in the cradle. But ‘Number Four’. Now that ought to have been given a chance.
