How To Exploit Hollywood’s Formula For Success?

What if instead of remaking good movies like Star Wars or Jurassic Park, Hollywood took another shot at making movies that didn’t do so well?  Why is someone not taking a shot at remaking The Room?  If you’ve not seen it, YouTube it, you won’t be disappointed.

It makes sense when you think about it.  A remake of a classic has nowhere to go but down while a remake of a dud has nowhere to go but up.  One has set the bar so low that that people are guaranteed to like it more than the original and the other it is set so high that there is no way people will like it more.

There’s a reason why Hollywood studios can create production budgets in the hundreds of millions because they only make movies that they know will make money.  When Hollywood remakes a classic film they already have a guaranteed audience that they know will come to the cinema just to see their favourite film back up on the screen.  They couldn’t give it two flips if it’s good or not.  They just care about getting people in the cinema.  That’s exactly what a remake, a sequel or a prequel does.

Hollywood loves remaking classics because they are a guaranteed money maker.  While that’s great for Hollywood, you might be thinking: “What does this have to do with me?”
