Blockbusters that let fans down are typically films that attempted to follow a fan-favorite classic. Whenever a film is successful, executives think about how they can wring more money out of the franchise. Sadly, the more popular a film becomes, the harder it is to follow up.
Movies that garner too much hype become a blessing and a curse for studios. On one hand, these overhyped films still manage to sell plenty of tickets. On the other, fans can turn on the franchise and avoid future installments once they decide they don't want to support the hyped movie. It becomes even harder to follow up on a classic if too much time passes before the sequel's release. It's hard to blame the sequels, though; some movies are just too overhyped to have a chance.
