In this episode of Film Stories with Simon Brew, a pair of sequels that both did well at the box office, but faced other problems.

Fantastic Four: Rise Of The Silver Surfer should have been fan gold, and was planned to set up a couple more movies. But the Fantastic Four sequel found itself looking a little out of time – and even promoting it, the cracks were showing.

Jaws 3-D meanwhile nearly ended up a very different film: an official Jaws comedy movie called Jaws 3 People 0. When the decision was made to go 3-D instead? Well, again, let’s just say there were problems.

Stories of both are told in this episode.
