The heavy dose of franchise films on the list indicates how familiarity can build buzz among moviegoers, Karger said.

"In the case of 'The Hunger Games', many people who loved the movie have read the other books so they're excited to see it brought to life," he said. "The same with 'The Hobbit' too.

"Some people say, 'Where is the originality?' but the fact of the matter is that these franchises are what people get most jazzed about."
