The Battle of the Ten Sequels
...damn. Just wrote 2014 on a check. And so, the march of the Hollywood sequels continues unimpeded. But there's at least two new ones this week: The Woman in Black 2 and Big Hero 6... oh, wait, that Hero one's from last year. But it's back! No Indian imports at the bottom of the Top 10 for us this week. Otherwise, it's all sequels, remakes, reboots... meanwhile, Unbroken and Into the Woods are duking it out for second and third places. Into the Woods has finally won. But that's one check mark in Unbroken's column: it's not a remake or a sequel. The only thing I can think is that it's a dramatic, nonfiction version of Seven Beauties but that's probably going too far.
