Audiences will put up with many things from Hollywood, but the one thing filmgoers have little tolerance for is a remake of a cinema classic. At best, these remakes are misguided attempts at doing something new with a tried and true film, but in many cases, they can feel like jaded cash grabs and excuses to trot out well-known pieces of IP.
Some of these reboots were meant to jumpstart a new franchise and stalled out immediately, while others completely disappeared from our collective memories. It's hard to quantify why an audience says no thank you to a remake. In some cases, the films are too similar to the original, but there are remakes that take the opposite course and spin off so far from the original film that audiences just don't want to interact. Which of these remakes has already slipped out of your brain? All of them, right?
