And then, because people liked the first one, they go to see it anyway. So, it still makes a profit. Which is exactly why crappy sequels like that get made.
They try to do that with a TV show: after a couple of episodes, the viewers go watch something else. TV shows HAVE TO deliver.

How do you explain Marvel: Agents of Shield?

Yes... the whole first movie was about how great Spartans are, as warriors. And now it turned out that those Athenians (mere 'traders') are just as good at the slow motion fighting! And the Spartans that were supposed to be so tough, and with their King sacrificing himself and his 300 to get his people ready to go to war... refuse to go to war in part 2... ? Plus, we have Artemisia I of Caria doing her best Darth Vader impersonation ('you have failed me for the last time'). And... oh... I could go on and on... even if I only saw half of it (because I could not stand it anymore).
