The Top Five Most Random Spinoffs in Movie History
In the tradition of ScreenCrush series like You Think You Know Movies and You Think You Know TV comes a new YouTube series: Top Five! Each week (or so; we’ve got a lot of other stuff going on), ScreenCrush editor and critic Matt Singer will count down a particular topic from the world of movies (and probably write these introductory posts in the third person).
This week’s big release is The Huntsman: Winter’s War, the follow-up to 2012’s Snow White and the Huntsman. But Snow White is nowhere to be found in this Snow White sequel, making The Huntsman, a rather curious spinoff (in her place is a princess, played by Emily Blunt, who bears at least a passing resemblance to Elsa from Frozen). In The Huntsman’s honor, we’re counting down some more of the strangest spinoffs of all time.
Top Five is a ScreenCrush original series that ranks all kinds of cool stuff from the world of movies. This is our 16th episode, so check out some of our past episodes below. Plus, we want your feedback, so be sure to let us know what Top Fives you want to see in future episodes! And don’t forget to subscribe to the ScreenCrush YouTube channel below to catch all our future episodes. Until next time, remember that if you look enough like Keanu Reeves, you have a shot at replacing Keanu Reeves in a sequel he doesn’t want to make.
