Last weekend Fast & Furious 6 raced into theaters and sped away a gigantic box office success, earning a record $120 million dollars worldwide. The Hangover 3, opening the same weekend and slated to be a worthy competitor to Vin Diesel’s 6th installment, came up short with only $42 million – half of what it was expected to. Iron Man 3 and Star Trek: Into Darkness are showing promise and have taken the silver screen by storm so far.
At Logitech, we happen to know a thing about action-packed sequels. From mice to iPad cases, from Harmony remotes to keyboards, we’re constantly working to release new and improved versions. Some of our biggest hits so far this summer include the Logitech Harmony Ultimate, Logitech FabricSkin Keyboard Folio and the ever-popular Logitech Eye Candy, all of which hit theaters stores recently.
With our sequel street cred established, here’s our power ranking of big cinematic summer sequels. How’d we do? Sound off in the comments and let us know which Logitech sequel you enjoyed most, or the one you’re looking forward to with the most anticipation!
Fast & Furious 6 (In theaters) – Truth in advertising, right? You know what you’re getting, and this increasingly ‘comic book’ feeling franchise has the smarts to stick to what it knows best – big and outrageous action.
The Hangover 3 (In theaters) – This third and final film following the adventures of the wolf pack has most reviewers weeping, but most fans cheering. With all the characters (and jokes) back for round three, it’ll be predictable but still a good time.
Iron Man 3 (In theaters) – Better than Iron Man 2, but not as epic as the first installment, it had enough high-tech cool factor to keep us interested and looking for more.
Star Trek: Into Darkness (In theaters) – Critics like it and fans are still heading to theaters, but we favor Star Trek by a nose. Since when did Spock turn into an action hero?
Man of Steel (June 14) – With each new trailer raising the bar even higher, this better be epic.
Despicable Me 2 (July 3) – We can appreciate a cartoon or two. The first one was left us wanting more and DM2 looks on track to keep us smiling and feeling like big kids.
The Wolverine (July 26) – Benefits from the lackluster series introduction, which lowers expectations a bit, but every whisper we hear has this version of The Wolverine looking razor sharp.
