75 Movie Director Trilogies- Full Details




I've included here not just official trilogies claimed by the director himself, but also unofficial ones decided by film critics and instances where there are three - and only three- films in a commercial series and they're all directed by the same person. That means Michael Bay is here alongside Masaki Kobayashi and Michael Haneke; he doesn't really deserve to be in such exalted company but there you go....
