Details

Phenomenally popular with contemporary audiences (if not with film critics), film sequels have been a part of Hollywood production practices for almost as long as the feature film.

In this comprehensive history of the Hollywood sequel, Stuart Henderson charts its changing role over the past century. Considering a diverse range of sequels in their industrial, historical and aesthetic contexts – from the silent classic The Son of the Sheik (1926) to the post-apocalyptic science fiction of Beneath the Planet of the Apes (1970) and the animated blockbuster Toy Story 3 (2010) – Henderson's illuminating study foregrounds the key features of and debates surrounding this commercially-dominant yet critically-neglected art form.
