Creating a Trilogy is considered to be one of the most difficult tasks in the movie industry as it is difficult to manage the expectations of the fans but these trilogies are an example for everyone as to how it is done. For this list, we have considered only those trilogies, in which all the movies came out in the same decade. Here is the list of movie trilogies of the 2010s decade ranked you must watch.
#10: Pitch Perfect Trilogy
Movies: Pitch Perfect (2012), Pitch Perfect 2 (2015), Pitch Perfect 3 (2017)
The Pitch Perfect Trilogy is exactly what you expect it to be. It is not an Oscar-Worthy trilogy in any sense whatsoever but it is super entertaining and fun. It has a lot of cheap laughs and a lot of feel-good music.
#9: Insidious Trilogy
Movies: Insidious (2010), Insidious Chapter 2 (2013), Insidious Chapter 3 (2015)
Building a proper universe in the horror genre is not an easy task but Insidious did that exceptionally. This Trilogy will make you feel sad and horrified at the same time. The atmosphere they create in these movies is absolutely terrifying. No one really expected this franchise to do this well.
#8: Hotel Transylvania Trilogy
Movies: Hotel Transylvania (2012), Hotel Transylvania 2 (2015), Hotel Transylvania 3 Summer Vacation (2018)
The Hotel Transylvania is a fun-filled harmless trilogy that the entire family can enjoy together. The Humor in this franchise is spot on and it sits very well with the intended audience. It is a ride filled with laughs and it keeps on giving.
#7: The Expendables Trilogy
Movies: The Expendables (2010), The Expendables 2 (2012), The Expendables 3 (2014)
This Trilogy is not at all intended for the critics, it is solely made for the purpose of entertaining the action-buffs. Every now and then you need popcorn flicks like The Expendables movies to just lay back and have a fun time.
#6: Thor Trilogy
Movies: Thor (2011), Thor The Dark World (2013), Thor Ragnarok (2017)
The Thor Trilogy became better with every movie and the tonal shift in the latest movie was a master-stroke as it saved the franchise. The first two movies are not necessarily bad, but the third one is just exceptional. The Mighty Norse God deserved a good trilogy and Marvel delivered it.
#5: The Hobbit Trilogy
Movies: The Hobbit An Unexpected Journey (2012), The Hobbit The Desolation of Smaug (2013), The Hobbit The Battle of The Five Armies (2014)
The Lord of The Rings Trilogy is considered one of the best trilogies of all time so it was obvious that the fans had sky-high expectations from this trilogy. This Trilogy managed to come out of the LOTR trilogy’s shadow, which is a very big feat.
#4: How To Train Your Dragon Trilogy
Movies: How To Train Your Dragon (2010), How To Train Your Dragon 2 (2014), How To Train Your Dragon The Hidden World (2019)
How To Train Your Dragon Trilogy is perhaps one of the greatest animated trilogies of all time. It is a near-perfect trilogy as you watch the characters grow up and their entire journey. It doesn’t matter if you are an adult, we assure you it will leave you in tears at the end.
#3: Captain America Trilogy
Movies: Captain America The First Avenger (2011), Captain America The Winter Soldier (2014), Captain America Civil War (2016)
In a world full of mystical beings laced with Technology and Superpowers, no one expected Captain America movies to be the best of the lot. Captain America’s trilogy is full of amazing action but it is the script which makes it phenomenal.
#2: Planet of the Apes Trilogy
Movies: Rise of The Planet of the Apes (2011), Dawn of the Planet of the Apes (2014), War for The Planet of the Apes (2017)
Every single one of us had our doubts about this trilogy but it proved us wrong on every single count. Watching Caesar’s emotional journey from a pet to a Fearless leader was just amazing. This trilogy will stay with fans for countless years.
#1: John Wick Trilogy
Movies: John Wick (2014), John Wick Chapter 2 (2017), John Wick Chapter 3 Parabellum (2019)
John Wick gave us the most awesome and breath-taking trilogy of this decade. John Wick is a proper action franchise filled with beautiful choreography and excessive violence. We did not expect anything from the trilogy, but Keanu Reeves had something else planned.
