It really is no surprise that prequels, sequels or reboots finished in the top six slots. These types of films have pre-awareness to where the studios are able to sell the concepts in domestic and foreign markets. Of the films taking slots 7-10, only The Great Gatsby is a remake but it should be noted that World War Z is based on a graphic novel, which helps with the pre-awareness of the title. Having Brad Pitt lead the cast didn’t hurt either.
