9 Examples Proving That Hollywood Is Making The Same Movies Every Year

Published 2 years ago

Have you ever found yourself in a situation where you’re watching a movie and feel like you’ve already seen it before? The actors and setting might be different but you just feel like you know exactly what’s going to happen next. Well, turns out it’s because Hollywood loves making movies with almost identical plots – sometimes even a few during the same year! Twitter user Kris recently pointed this out and gave movies No Strings Attached and Friends with Benefits as examples. Apparently, the user was onto something as over 233k people liked his post and some even responded with their own examples – check them out below!

Now, this doesn’t necessarily mean the movies are bad – they’re just a little repetitive. I mean, do we really need so much superhero movies or movies starring Dwayne Johnson?

And don’t even get me started on movies starring Adam Sandler – there must have been a new one coming out every other week when I was a kid.

One day, this guy just kind of figured - "I spend most of my time on the internet anyway, why not turn it into a profession?" - and he did! Now he not only gets to browse the latest cat videos and fresh memes every day but also shares them with people all over the world, making sure they stay up to date with everything that's trending on the web. Some things that always pique his interest are old technologies, literature and all sorts of odd vintage goodness. So if you find something that's too bizarre not to share, make sure to hit him up!

Got wisdom to pour?
