Remakes, Reboots and Sequels: 2024 in Film

2024 is shaping up to be a year of revisiting old favourites in film. I understand this isn’t unusual and we often rag on Hollywood for their lack of original ideas. For some reason, this year it’s more noticeable than ever.

Is it due to the 2022 writer’s strike? Not sure. But let’s take a look at some of the releases scheduled for this year so far:

Road House

Beetlejuice Beetlejuice

Dune 2

Ghostbusters: Frozen Empire

The First Omen

Godzilla x Kong: The New Empire

Fall Guy


Bad Boys 4

Inside Out 2

A Quiet Place: Day One


Deadpool 3

Untitled Alien Movie

Horizon: An American Saga Chapter 2

Transformers One

Saw XI

Joker: Folie a Deux

Smile 2

Venom 3

Gladiator 2

Wicked (Wizard of Oz)

Untitled Karate Kid Movie

Sonic the Hedgehog 3

Mufasa: The Lion King

The Lord of the Rings “The War of the Rohirrim”


The Bride! (of Frankenstein)


…While this list doesn’t include ALL of the remakes, reboots and sequels in development (I’m sure I’m missing some). I believe this demonstrates my point.

It’s also worth noting that other sequels have been announced this year and will likely get release dates down the road such as Happy Gilmore 2 and Matrix 5.
