Yes, Hollywood is dying!! All that they seem to come up with these days are REMAKES of old classics and using old already "proven" hit songs in their movies instead of original scores. When I was a kid, certain movies had hit songs which added to the luster and publicity of the movie. Remember "the theme from Jaws", "The Exorcist" score "tubular bells", "Saturday Night Fever", "Xanadu", "The Morning After" from Poseidon Adventure, "Grease"? Hollywood is too cheap and will not spend $$ to create ORIGINAL artistic work anymore, just formula krap rehashed from generation to generation.
They even have lazy celebrities with indistinguishable voices taking the jobs from professional voice-over people.
And didn't they already do a Carrie remake back in the 90s?
Lets hope so. Though they've managed to propagate (their Leftist agenda) via tv (these days even COMMERCIALS - once there was a day when commercials actually looked to sell their product, now it is simply to demean Whites, apparently).
Another death rattle (of creativity anyway). I'm sure there are smart people and good ideas floating around Hollywood. The problem is it's garbage like this that is given the green light. Only proven moneymakers need apply. Not only is this another lame sequel...but it looks horrible, as if they wrote most of the script over a few happy hours at the local pub.
I don't understand how people are dumb enough to pay to watch certain movies in the theater. I can understand watching them on Netflix or HBO/Showtime but why would anyone pay $30 to see a movie like the Change Up with Jason Bateman or Premium Rush. Those movies are low budget and low quality. The shows on HBO and even cable are superior to most of the movies that are released in theaters today. Are people that bored that they would pay a lot of money just to watch a movie in a theater. I'm not against watching movies in theaters but it has to be something that is worth watching in the theater like the Avengers in which the special effects and audience interaction make the movie fun to watch. But why would I pay $30 to see Hope Springs when it's going to be on Netflix in 5 months. What's so special about watching a Meryl Streep film in the theater. Nothing against Meryl Streep but you will better appreciate an Oscar nominated or quality film at home than you can in the theater where it's quiet, you can pause to reflect about scenes, use subtitles if you didn't hear or understand what was said etc.
You do realize that every time you pay to watch a mediocre film in the theater, you are supporting the vain and ostentatious lifestyles of actors and actresses. Stop going to the movies unless it's for certain films that are worth it. Hollywood only produces these films because YOU pay to see them. If you don't watch them, they won't be made.
If people limit going to the movies, theaters will lower their ticket prices and studios will stop paying actors and actress ridiculous salaries. Don't blame Hollywood, blame yourself! They make movies like Carrie because morons pay to see it.
