Every year seems to bring more and more sequels, prequels, spin-offs, and rehashes to the box office. The days of original movies are dwindling. This year, over 50 new sequels, prequels, remakes, and reboots will hit theaters.

Studios know by now to bank on what works, and that's why there are so many of these types of films made every year. They're simply safer bets for the suits to make. Movies with built-in fanbases are easier to project.

Unfortunately, that means a lot of poor movies are rushed into production. But not always! There is such a thing as a well-done sequel. (The Godfather Part II and Mad Max: Fury Road come to mind.) It's rare, but it does happen. Hopefully, the rest of 2018 will give us some good ones to add to the list.

Here's a look at all the prequels, sequels, and remakes coming this fall.
