If there were a movie zodiac in the same style of the Chinese zodiac, then 2007 would have to be the year of the sequel. Beginning in March with the release of The Hills Have Eyes 2, a number of sequels are going to be released in theaters over the next several months.

While there are some sequels coming out this year that might make one wonder, “Wasn’t the first one enough?” (namely Alien vs. Predator 2, slated for release in August), there are also some long-awaited films making their return.

Students majoring in art have their work cut out for them when they enter the program, but design instructor Donald Martin says it’s not too much to handle.
