Just in case you were wondering why Hollywood studios continue to pour their time and talents into recognizable franchises -- most notably of the superhero sort -- a research report conducted by Piper Jaffray on the predicted consumer habits of teenagers in the year 2017 indicated that all seven anticipated movies are sequels or chapters in expansive cinematic universes, most of which have been around for decades.

An investment bank and asset management firm, Piper Jaffray Companies specializes in mergers and acquisitions, and related information. Their latest Collaborative Consumer Insights Projects for Spring 2017 (read it in full here) analyzes the activities of teenage consumers and covers everything from Global Fashion and Lifestyle Brands, Media and Devices, and Restaurants. When it came to the category of anticipated 2017 films -- movies on the radars of cash-holding teenagers -- these seven titles ranked alongside the already successful Beauty and the Beast. Disney dominates the contenders, but what other films are being circled on the calendars of teens?

Jason Statham in The Fate of the Furious

The Fate of the Furious

The Fast & Furious franchise has a little something for everyone, so it's no surprise that it ranks so heavily with a teenage audience. For one thing, the movies have been prevalent for the duration of their entire lives, having kick started 16 years ago with The Fast and the Furious. This series excels at marketing, makes terrific use of contemporary music and the fast-car culture, and has been consistently entertaining for the past three films (and counting).

Release Date: April 14
