Sequels are either big business in Hollywood or a sign of the laziness inherent in an art form so steeped in financial success that nothing original can be created. Probably both.

In 2017, we can expect a lot of new movies. Of those new movies, there are more than 30 sequels hitting theaters. That’s kind of ridiculous, right? Here’s what we can expect more of in 2017:

Resident Evil: The Final Chapter - Time since previous movie: 4 years
