It’s been a chaotic year for entertainment. Amid the long-lasting actor’s and writer’s strikes, several highly-anticipated films set to hit theaters in 2023 were pushed back into 2024, such as “Dune: Part Two.”

Much to the relief of moviegoers, Barbenheimer took the world by storm — filling the entertainment gap for months.

If 2023 was the year of Barbenheimer, 2024 will be the year of prequels, sequels, spinoffs and remakes. Nearly every big-budget movie coming to theaters next year falls under derives from fan-favorite original movie.

Here are 15 movies to look forward to in 2024.
