Here’s why Hollywood KEEPS making movie sequels and reboots

We say we want more originality from Hollywood, but out of the top 25 movies so far this year, only a whopping four aren’t actually sequels, remakes, or adaptations… That’s kind’ve crazy when you think about it.

Check out this chart:

So it’s kind’ve a question of which came first… the chicken or the egg?

Meaning… is it HOLLYWOOD that keeps making the reboots, forcing us to watch more – OR – Is it US?! Do we want to go see the reboots and sequels, and that’s why Hollywood keeps making them?!

Either way, don’t expect things to change soon. Some of the biggest films expected later this year include Star Wars: The Last Jedi, Kingsman: The Golden Circle, Blade Runner 2049, and Justice League, DC’s answer to Marvel’s The Avengers. Even Al Gore’s An Inconvenient Truth is getting a sequel later this month.
