The never-ending series: Film franchises that have ‘Fast & Furious’ beat

Sure, Fast & Furious has reached No. 6, but it’s got nothing on these franchises:

    • Police Academy (7)

      Definitively proving that lame jokes never get funnier.

    • Harry Potter (8)

      Surely artistry, not $8 billion in box-office sales, fueled the decision to turn seven books into eight films.

    • Friday the 13th (12)

      That’s 10 original movies (taking Jason from summer camp to outer space), one pitting Jason against Freddy Krueger and one remake. A sequel to the remake is still pending. Really.

    • James Bond (23)

      Even spread over 50 years, that’s a few too many, but the way the franchise is headed right now, who isn’t looking forward to No. 24?
