Let’s face it, we live in a culture of brand name recognition. Sequels, prequels and remakes are everywhere you look and make up an incredibly large portion of the movies being released each year. While most of them are played out and unoriginal, they are huge moneymaking powerhouses for studios and aren’t going away anytime soon.
