A New Low in Film Recycling

An article in Vulture recently stated that 1/3 films next year will be sequels, prequels, reboots and re-releases.The worst part of this statistic is that not only do none of them appear to have any potential, but the majority are reboots of shitty movies. Most of the options worth looking forward to are just re-releases of old movies.

But we can’t blame this all on the major studios. They produce what we appear to want, and, in this case, appearances are often reality. If you disagree, as I do, you’re probably not the target audience, and so your interests only count for a small percentage of the market share.

It’s a shame we can now talk about movie studios and what they produce the same way we can talk about Wal-Mart. But not all hope is lost.

Some examples:

  • The Amityville Horror: The Lost Tapes
  • The Expendables 2
  • Madagascar 3
  • Step Up 4
  • Scary Movie 5
  • Snow White and the Huntsman!
  • Journey (to the Center of the Earth) 2
  • Ghost Rider 2: Spirit of Vengeance
  • Die Hard 5
  • Underworld Awakening
