The 10 Best Movie Trilogies of The 21st Century

By Vitor Guima

Rise of the Planet of the Apes

Film trilogies are something very recurrent in cinema history. Being three movies that follow the same story and making it easier to tell a longer narrative, or even movies from a specific director that revolves around the same theme or even the same place, in the years since the 21st century began, some very, very great trilogies were made.

First of all, it is important to say that this article will not consider trilogies that began in the last century, even if most of the films from the trilogy in question were released in this one. This makes trilogies such as Sofia Coppola’s Female Alienation Trilogy and Alejandro G. Iñárritu’s Death Trilogy out of the list because they started respectively with “The Virgin Suicides” (1999) and “Amores Perros” (2000), for example.

Also, many reasons interfere in the choice and order of this list, although it is really not particularly ranked, but as usual, personal preferences and memory are the main factors. If you think any other trilogy from this century should be considered, please leave it as a recommendation in the comments section below.

Last but not least, it is important to say that we still have more than 80 years of film ahead of us in this century and that this list does not intend to represent the complete 21st century, but is willing to introduce some of the greatest trilogies made from 2001 to 2017, the year this article is being written.

So, here are 10 great movie trilogies from the 21st century you should definitely watch.
