10 Sequels We're Actually Looking Forward to in 2014"
Are you ready for more 'Hunger Games,' ' X-Men,' and 'Muppets'?
'The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1'
Release Date: November 21
Why it's a sequel we want: Hello, of course we want this! Granted, "Mockingjay" isn't going to feature the glamour and fabulous costumes of the Hunger Games. Katniss and company are going to war, and the stakes are high. Fans of the books will know what's ahead, and some of it isn't pretty, but new director Francis Lawrence ("Water for Elephants") will probably find a way to make even the dankest recesses of District 13 captivating. But this first of the final two films isn't about good looks -- as much as the first two films (and books) were life and death, that dilemma plays out on a much larger scale this time around. Expect tears.
