What do you think of this new IT?
Will it scare up enough profits to be worth making?
Will it be entertaining enough to be worth watching?
I prefer awe, wonder, and beauty in my theater movies,
so I am interested in seeing Valerian and the City of A Thousand Planets.
How about you?
What new movies are you interested in seeing these next few months?
Did you know that 120 reboots and sequels are scheduled to be made in the next 2 years?
The Matrix, Scarface, Ace Ventura, Charlie's Angels,
The Fly, The Little Shop of Horrors, Zorro Reborn,
The Legend of Conan, An American Werewolf in London,
Alien Nation, Big Trouble in Little China, The Birds,
Death Wish, Escape From New York, Flight of the Navigator, The Green Hornet
And The Highlander!
(There can be only one indeed!)
The list goes depressingly on.
But it is not the lack of originality that is to blame.
It is hunger for certain profits that is driving these studios.
A known franchise guarantees enough profit to break even in the States
and the possibility for huge profits overseas where the bulk of Hollywood's profits come from these days.
What Do You Think About All These Reboots?
