I know it may seem strange, but with all the remake movies that have been out — and we’ve written about a lot of them — I’m glad they’re making their way to the theaters. Let’s blow the trumpets upon their entrance! Once they’re out and tank, the studios will start to put together that even if a movie taps into our nostalgia, like recent films “Speed Racer” “The Smurfs” and “Marmaduke,” we’re not going to see them if they’re bad.
“The A-Team,” a popular TV show in the 80s, hasn’t even broke the $100 million mark at the box office domestically. Marmaduke only pulled in $32 million domestically and cost $50 million to make. “Speed Racer” took in $93 million worldwide and cost $120 million to make — a huge bath for Warner Bros. to take. These all give me hope that you won’t support bad movies, and confidence that you won’t go see “Yogi Bear” — in 3D nonetheless (something we here at The Movie Brothers hate). I don’t have a problem with remakes, but if you’re going to do them, do them right.
So, without further ado, sit back and don’t enjoy the following trailer:
