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?
