Sequels in the works

Hollywood seems to be out of ideas. This has been said so often that it no longer has any meaning.
Every year it seems as if a greater percentage of studio movies are either sequels or adaptations. Recently, sequels have taken the lead.

But whose fault is that? I mean, if a business has been conditioned to expect $1,000,000,000 returns on recycled ideas, uninspired sequels, and single films split into multiple films, is the business really to blame for producing more recycled ideas, uninspired sequels, and single films split into multiple films?

This week we take a look a the, frankly, ASTONISHING number of sequels that studios have at various stages of production.
