Simple Infographic Shows Hollywood is Giving Up on Original Ideas

Generally, we’re not very happy with the slew of remakes and sequels that seem to be taking over multiplexes. Sure we love comic books film franchises like Iron Man and soon-to-be-sequelized heroes from The Avengers like Thor: The Dark World and Captain America: The Winter Soldier, not to mention the now concluded Harry Potter franchise and the highly anticipated Avatar sequels. But much of our excitement comes from original films like Looper, arthouse beauties like The Master or even ambitious adaptations like Cloud Atlas. Sadly, an infographic looking at Hollywood’s films over the years has shown that the studios have all but given up on original films and, as we already knew, favor sequels and remakes.
