35 Movie Sequels to Be Excited about in 2016 ...

2015 has been all about the final part of The Hunger Games, and of course, the new Star Wars. We also enjoyed Jurassic World, Spectre, Terminator Genisys, and Pitch Perfect 2. So what sequels and serial episodes can we look forward to in 2016?

p.s. we don't have trailers for the new movies so I've included the originals to remind you of what you can look forward to.
