9 Worst Spin-Off Movies in History

by at .  Updated at . Comments

Making a spin-off movie from a beloved flick is a tricky business. But, oftentimes they work. We found 9 that unfortunately did not. 

We'd love to be in the pitch room for some of these. Like, "We don't have Jim Carrey, so let's do Son of the Mask!" Yeah, right -- that worked out pretty well. 

So, what other movies are on our list of awful spin-offs? 

Click through and discover our 9 worst spin-off movies in film history.

1. X-Men Origins: Wolverine

X-Men Origins: Wolverine
We love Hugh Jackman as Wolverine, but this movie is a poor excuse for an X-Men movie. Sorry, Hugh, we are thrilled though that you got to make the awesome Wolverine. But, X-Men Origins: Wolverine, that has to go.

2. American Pie Presents: Band Camp

American Pie Presents: Band Camp
"One time at band camp" is a line in a classic comedy, American Pie. It does not, and should not, make for an entire movie as they did with American Pie Presents: Band Camp.

3. U.S. Marshals

U.S. Marshals
Tommy Lee Jones won an Oscar for playing his U.S. marshal character in The Fugitive. So, let's give him his own movie and call it U.S. Marshals and have him chasing after Wesley Snipes. Nope, not a good idea.

4. Catwoman

We loved Michelle Pfeiffer as Catwoman opposite Michael Keaton in the Batman movie. But, Halle Berry in a solo Catwoman movie, why --- simply, why?!

5. Elektra

Here's a fantastic use of a hundred million dollars. Let's take a supporting player in a horrible superhero movie and give her her own film. Love ya, Jennifer Garner, but Elektra should never have happened.

6. The Scorpion King

The Scorpion King
Here's another example of taking an element of a successful franchise (The Mummy) and spinning it off with hopes of it being its own franchise. Dwayne Johnson starred in The Scorpion King and it wasn't his fault that this movie was terrible. But... it did do one thing -- created a new franchise. They've made four Scorpion King movies!
