About this book

Drawing on a wide range of examples, this book – the first devoted to the phenomenon of the film trilogy– provides a dynamic investigation of the ways in which the trilogy form engages key issues in contemporary discussions of film remaking, adaptation, sequelization and serialization.

Reviews

'This collection is interesting, informative and much-needed. It will act as a key resource within the field and cross-over with a number of related subjects within film studies, such as adaptation, sequels and remakes.'

- Jamie Sexton, Northumbria University, UK

'Film Trilogies is a timely and welcome addition to recent studies of what has been described disparagingly as commercial cinema's financially motivated compulsion to repeat, but with this marked difference; contrary to its association with remakes, series, and sequels, the trilogy, as this volume ably demonstrates, is generally the work of an auteur, and its repetitions are aesthetic and thematic, not formulaic. The essays in this book represent an important contribution to the continuing exploration of the richness of returning to earlier cinematic material.'

- Jennifer Forrest, Texas State University-San Marcos, USA
