When we think of movies, we think of LA, Hollywood, and other romanticised images. However, in reality, the glory days of the movie industry might actually be over. While movies are being pumped out more rapidly than ever, most of them are sequels on existing properties. Is Hollywood playing it safe?

1) Why is the movie industry currently making so many remakes and sequels to already existing properties?
2) Does the revenue made by the movie industry support the claim that the industry is in decline?
3) Can the recycling of movies also be linked to the same pool of actors being contracted for most movies?
