London, April 29 (ANI): The Empire Strikes Back has been voted the greatest movie sequel in a new poll.

The flick - George Lucas’s follow-up to Star Wars: A New Hope - bagged nearly a fifth of all votes in the survey, conducted by DVD rental firm Lovefilm.

Terminator 2, starring Arnold Schwarzenegger, took the second spot followed by The Godfather Part II.

‘There’s no beating Star Wars, and fans have been very vocal in our poll to establish its place as the top sequel of all time,” the Telegraph quoted Helen Cowley, editor at Lovefilm, as saying.

Cowley added: ‘Film sequels give us the chance to see our favourite characters back on the big screen but it’s rare to find a sequel that truly does its predecessor justice.

‘It’s great to see so many highly regarded titles in the top 10 and making their own mark on film history.’

The top 10 film sequels are:

1. Star Wars: Episode V - The Empire Strikes Back (1980)2. Terminator 2 (1991)3. The Godfather Part II (1974)4. The Dark Knight (2008)5. Aliens (1986)6. The Bourne Supremacy (2004)7. The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers (2002)8. Toy Story 2 (1999)9. Meet the Fockers (2004)10. Shrek 2 (2004) (ANI)
