7. ‘Airplane III’ — Sequels That Never Happened

After the credits roll, an advertisement appears for 'Airplane III' and William Shatner (who had a cameo in 'Airplane II: The Sequel') says, “that’s exactly what they’ll be expecting us to do.”  For all the gags in 'Airplane II: The Sequel,' one thing was serious-- Paramount wanted to make a third film, to be directed by David Zucker, who co-wrote and co-directed the first movie. But lead actor Robert Hays turned down the project, because he didn’t want to be typecast. Instead, Hays went on to play the title character in ABC’s sci-fi drama 'Starman' (based on the Jeff Bridges movie of the same name).

6. ‘History of the World: Part I’ (1981) — Sequels That Never Happened

Okay, Mel Brooks was probably kidding about making a follow-up to 'History of the World,' but we’d still love to see more of "Jews in Space."

5. ‘Lord of the Rings’ (1978) — Sequels That Never Happened

The original title of Ralph Bakshi’s animated epic was 'The Lord of the Rings: Part One.' The 'Fritz the Cat' director had negotiated to produce all three of J.R.R. Tolkien’s books into two films. But the studio believed no one would pay to see half of a movie (unless that movie was 'Harry Potter 7'). Consequently, the film ends without a satisfying resolution and there was no sequel. Years later, Arthur Rankin and Jules Bass (makers of the 1977 'Hobbit' movie) delivered a made-for-TV version of 'Return of the King.' Despite its eventual live-action adaption, 'The Two Towers' just couldn't catch a break in animation.

4. ‘Remo Williams: The Adventure Begins’ (1985) — Sequels That Never Happened

When MGM adapted the 'Destroyer' book series, they must have been confident that the 140+ books would create the next James Bond. In fact, they were so confident they titled their film 'Remo Williams: The Adventure Begins.' But a lukewarm performance at the box office ended the movie series. Surprisingly the adventure continued on television. In 1988, ABC aired the pilot for a 'Remo Williams' TV series, featuring an unrecognizable Roddy McDowell as Korean martial arts guru Chiun. (Watch a clip above.)

3. ‘Masters of the Universe’ (1987) — Sequels That Never Happened

Spoiler Alert: The live-action 'Masters of the Universe' movie ends with Dolph Lundgren’s He-Man defeating the evil Skeletor (Frank Langella) by throwing him into a pit of doom. The credits roll and all’s right with the world. But then, Skeletor pops his ugly skull out of the boiling waters and he tells viewers “I’ll be back!” (Watch him say it in German above. You can watch the actual scene here.) There was never another feature film, so presumably bone-brain was referring to the 1990 cartoon 'The New Adventures of He-Man.'

2. ‘Bubba Ho-Tep’ — Sequels That Never Happened

'Bubba Ho-Tep' is a horror-comedy that pits an elderly Elvis Presley against a soul-sucking Mummy in a West Texas nursing home. Director Don Coscarelli added a gag at the end of the film, claiming that there’d be a prequel: “Elvis returns in 'Bubba Nosferatu: Curse of the She-Vampires.'” Fans took it seriously, including actor Paul Giamatti who volunteered to play Elvis’ manager, Colonel Tom Parker. Giamatti continues to champion the film, and has since teamed-up with director Coscarelli in the upcoming 'John Dies in the End.' (Watch Giamatti discuss the potential sequel in the video above.)

1. ‘Mac & Me’ (1988) — Sequels That Never Happened

At the end of the 'E.T.' rip-off, er, homage 'Mac & Me ,' a family of Coke-lovin’ space-aliens drive along the highway in a pink convertible while young Mac blows a bubble which reads, “We’ll be back.”

Satan? That You? – Funniest Mug Shots

It's probably very nice to know that the girl you're dating isn't into you just for your looks. The downside is that it's really hard to find a baseball cap that fits. But on the upside, it always looks like he's wearing a fancy turtle neck
