Articles in this category are about films of Science-Fiction, Fantastic and Horror.

EDIT: Quote (from Wikipedia):

A media franchise is a collection of related media in which several derivative works have been produced from an original creative work, such as a film, a work of literature, a television program or a video game. The intellectual property from the work can be licensed to other parties or partners for further derivative works and commercial exploitation across a range of media and by a variety of industries for merchandising purposes.

In this case, sections such as: Superman, Batman, Spider-Man, Bad Moms, Jaws, Beverly Hills Cop, Ted, Bridget Jones, Dirty Harry, The Hangover, Home Alone, Paranormal Activity, Psycho, the Robert Langdon Trilogy or Taken and so many others have no place in this wikia. This page is here to teach about "Film Franchises", also known as "Cash Machine", a franchise is an intellectual property including characters, fictional places and trademarks, the movies mentioned above are none of that! They are only a small succession of films brought to benefit on the first opus, but in no case for the purpose of mounting a Franchise.

Note: Can Non-Canon animated series of the Star Wars Universe be mentioned in the "Star Wars" section?

Note: Since Disney acquired 20th Century Fox, which owned the rights of Deadpool, and Bob Iger, said that Deadpool would not lose its "R" status, and that it would include the Marvel Cinematic Universe, the film Deadpool might- it be mentioned in the section of the franchise?

Note: should we move Deadpool in the MCU section ? and about Gambit?

Note: I understand you completely about Jaws, Beverly Hills, Taken, all that YES, these are not franchises, but "Ted" and the Robert Langdon trilogy are clearly typical of "Cash Machines", one is clearly present to make profits thanks to the success of the first film and the other is there to make profit on bestsellers by making movies in profusion. So, rethink your notes guys!

Note: The Tomb Raider section should be re-titled "Eidos Universe" or "Eidos Cinematic Universe".

Note: A parenthesis in the MCU section entitled "spin-off X-Men" with Deadpool, Gambit and why not New Mutants? since Sony's Marvel Universe is now present in the section.

Note: Ghost in the Shell is a franchise, I do not understand its removal ?!

Note:And for those who do not know it Ghost in the Shell is related to 2005's Aron Flux, which makes it a "real" cinematic universe.

Take a look below:

A little Teaser.
