The Movie Pitch

Hollywood seems to have lost the art of originality. Or at least, lost the art of greenlighting original stories. In the decade between 2004 and 2014, the number of movie releases that were sequels, prequels, remakes, or reboots doubled, and 2016 has even more. In fact, there are 252 planned sequels, prequels, remakes, and reboots between now and 2020. The reason is money, of course. A familiar universe based on an successful existing franchise is a safer bet than an unknown. Studios take that into account, and so do distributors, and so do moviegoers, because they are all risking more money than ever before on theatrical entertainment.
