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:
thnx for another great post
That looks awful… but even money says it does between $200 – $300 million at Christmas. It’s this Christmas’s ‘Alvin and the Chipmunks.’ No brainer for the 2 – 8 year-old crowd… and their stupid parents like me who will fork over the money to see this.
This looks like the biggest piece of shit since Kangaroo Jack.
Ha, like your cynical take and agree 100%. The Smurfs trailer made me want to kill someone.
Also, stop by and let me know who you wild and crazy guys would nominate for for my poll on bogus teachers…I’m sure you can come up with something interesting!
When I thought of a shitty teacher, the first one I could think of was that French Teacher in the film School Ties. He was an asshole.
the only redeemable thing about a yogi Bear movie would be on Christmas Day, when it’s your turn in line say “One for Yogi Motherfuckin’ Bear.”
Hahahaha. I think I may go just to say that.
