One in three films next year will be a sequel, prequel, or remake

A summer of sequels and reboots just passed, and it’s time to look ahead … to another year full of sequels and reboots! A quick analysis by Vulture of next year’s releases shows that one in three films will be either a remake, reboot, rerelease, sequel, or prequel. As one might expect, the summer will be especially rich in déjà vu: Half the films in both June and July carry the DNA of films past — which sounds like a lot until you get to August, when two thirds of the movies do.
