There will be more movie sequels in 2011 than in any previous year.

This year, there will be a whopping 27 sequels – that’s nearly one-fifth of all the wide-release films! With Mission Impossible Ghost Protocol, Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides, Scream 4, Spy Kids 4: All the Time in the World, and The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn (Part One) there will also be the most part fours ever released in one calendar year. Not only that, there will be an equal number of part fives, breaking yet another record with: Fast Five, Final Destination 5, Puss in Boots, X-Men: First Class, and Winnie the Pooh. There will also be 2 part seven films (The Muppets & Rise of the Apes) and one part eight (Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Part 2)! So much for originality…
