That era is nowhere close to ending but the recent sequel slump does suggest that Hollywood may have become quick on the sequel trigger. Maybe not every profitable movie deserves a second chapter. No studio executive today could get away with not ordering up a sequel to a $1 billion-grossing movie like 2010's "Alice in Wonderland" – yet the drop was staggering for "Alice Through the Looking Glass," which has made $51.4 million domestically in three weeks.Of the top 10 films of 2016 thus far, nine are sequels, spin-offs or reboots.While sequels may have dipped, originality is cratering. Pixar's "Finding Dory" – a sequel to 2003's "Finding Nemo" – is widely expected to be among the season's biggest hits.Mediocre reviews did nothing to slow "Jurassic World" from becoming one of the highest grossing films of all time last year.Could Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles join the next "Transformers" film?
