Beside the point. If they made them back to back and released them 6 months apart, like the halves of the final Harry Potter and Twilight movies or Back to the Future Part II and Part III, then the second one would still be scheduled and released no matter how poorly the first one did.

Of course, it's thus unlikely that a studio would commit to a 2-part film like that unless it were part of an already-successful franchise. It would be too great a risk to undertake it as the launch of a franchise. (Then again, LotR was quite a risk, wasn't it? I seem to recall there was a lot of trouble finding a studio willing to take the gamble.)
