9 Sequels and Remakes Hitting the Big Screen
Hollywood is a fan of repetition. Each year, old movies are remade and sequels are added to films that proved to be successful. This year is no exception. From remakes of old favorites, such as Godzilla, to sequels that fans have been waiting for (Hunger Games, anyone?) there are several films that you can expect to see hit movie theaters this year.
1. The Amazing Spider-Man 2
With a release date of May 2, this sequel will focus more heavily on the character of Peter Parker and will emphasize the “dorky humor of the man unlucky enough to have to save the world the makes us identify so closely with Spider-Man,”according to a Swide article. Spider-Man, played by Andrew Garfield, finds true happiness with Gwen, played by Emma Stone, but realizes that being a superhero comes at a price: it’s up to him to protect New York City. When Electro (Jamie Foxx) shows up, Peter must take on the powerful villain while realizing that his enemies have one thing in common: OsCorp.
