    Hollywood is lazy and want as much money as possible while being as lazy as possible. They're going to milk it for all it's worth. Just look at Star Wars or The Land Before Time.

    It was never really that conventional.

    In the Fifties and earlier, serials were the thing - with some going for as many episodes as a TV show would today. Then you had things like the James Bond movies, with a new movie every couple years.

    Trilogies only really became a thing in certain notable cases - like "The Godfather" and the original "Star Wars." Or if they were based on books that were already trilogies - like "Lord of the Rings." Most every other series they would keep making as long as people kept buying tickets.

    Pretty much like today.

    The new batch of writers can not think of anything for themselves. So, they do more sequels or remakes.
