Final Destination marks the third biggest horror franchise in New Line’s list following two IT movies with a gross of $1 billion and The Conjuring universe with a $2 billion gross.
The USP of Final Destination Franchise is that the concept was easy to travel across movies. The main character of each movie was a premonition of the horrific and deadly event. By escaping their death and saving people to end with death moving along the characters as a shadow.
The first Final Destination was released on 17 March 2000.
