Whether they’ve run out of ideas or are just trying to give audiences more of the things they love, Hollywood has been in the midst of a franchise remake epidemic that doesn’t show any signs of letting up. These films aren’t just trying to make a better or more modern version of an older movie, they’re trying to to be the spark the ignites a whole series of successful movies.
We’ve seen a number of successful reboots over the last few years, including a double dose in 2015 in the form of Jurassic World and Star Wars: The Force Awakens, which were both massive commercial hits. But, as you’ll see if you continue reading, not all reboots have had as much luck breathing new life into an old franchise. Here are some that failed pretty badly.
20. A Nightmare on Elm Street (2010)
The original Nightmare on Elm Street was a horror classic that carved a niche in the genre and launched one of the highest-grossing horror franchises in history. Freddy Krueger and his bladed glove gave terrified adolescents everywhere ample reason to stay awake at night and fueled our nightmares for years afterward. However, this 2010 remake of the film starring Jackie Earle Haley as the iconic dream slayer pales in comparison. It’s usually difficult to introduce a new lead actor when rebooting a franchise. The general consensus of the movie was that, despite remaining faithful to the visual style of the original, it lacked the depth and provocative twists that would have made it more memorable.Tr than tying all our childhood memories and feelings of nostalgia to this awful remake.http://projectdeadpost.com/nightmare-elm-street-2010.html Via projectdeadpost.com
