25 Sequels Coming Your Way In 2017

Steve Porter / January 21, 2017

2017 is going to be a huge year for movies. We’re getting a handful of franchise reboots, a whole bunch of remakes, and as always, a ton of brand new original films. However, it’s safe to say that theaters are going to be packed with sequels over the next 12 months. Sorry to say, but if you’re part of the group that is sick and tired of follow-ups, it’s not going to get any better in the foreseeable future. Between 2017 and 2022, it looks like we’ll be getting more than 172 sequels. This number is including planned follow-ups to movies that haven’t even hit theaters yet. Look at The Amazing Spider-Man films to reference the uncertainty that can exist in Hollywood. So here’s a list of 25 sequels coming your way this year – in no particular order.
