The Muses visit Hollywood in the form of many incarnations: TV series, books, toys, video games, and board games.

Let’s face it. Every story has been done. Who needs originality when the products we know and love make excellent premises for films. It’s just smart business. Right?

Not buying it? Look at “OUIJA” – a film based on the game went on to become a box office phenomenon. Or “BATTLESHIP” – while it didn’t exactly sink the cineplexes, it still earned a loyal fan base and some say came close to Oscar nods. What’s next? Can you anticipate the trends? Take a guess at whether this film is visionary or phony. Is this a product-turned-movie and will it be coming to a theater near you?
