The Indonesian film industry began to flourish in the late 90s and the end of 2000, after ten years in a stagnant state. The growth of the creative industries is received gladly by the masses. The birth of the film industry shows that many Indonesian films still exist. Unfortunately, the growth in this film industry is still largely dominated by the market as the main reference. The films based on adaptation, sequel, prequel and remake are the films that are most widely produced and become the best-selling films. Films like these are not bad, however they could slowly amputating the creativity of the filmmakers. This is due to the fact that the production of the film is based solely on the content that has previously been sold well in the market. In a film based on adaptation, the content of the film refers to a novel or a book that became the best seller. While in a film based on sequel, prequel and remake, the content refers to the previous film that became blockbuster in the market. This is what is feared to reduce the creativity of the filmmakers. The concepts of industry hegemony, the idea of the organic intellectuals, and the presence of the Government become critically important parts of this review. The focus of this paper is to see how the pattern of Indonesian films - films based on adaptation, sequel, prequel, and remake, in particular- that are based on the passion of Indonesian films. It uses the industry perspective on a culture that sees the market as the main reference.
