The Drill Down Remakes That Simply Couldn’t Live Up To The Original Films Published 4 months ago on Jun 12, 2018 By Will Gardner In Hollywood, remakes are always a bit polarizing— some people love them, others hate them. Batman Begins, The Ring, and Dawn of the Dead are some that gained high praise. With every great remake, there comes several that are simply not worth anyone’s time. These five films managed to leave a bad taste in everyone’s mouth. The Mummy (2017) 1999’s The Mummy managed to kickstart a billion-dollar movie franchise. In 2017, Universal decided to reboot the whole thing for its Dark Universe franchise. Unfortunately, the film failed to deliver with a near $100 million loss overall. The momentum for the Dark Universe came to a screeching halt, which led to several movies left hanging in the air. Universal Pictures Ghostbusters (2016) Ghostbusters managed to become trouble upon the release of its first trailer. The remake was born from the ashes of a scrapped Ghostbusters 3. The studio figured having the original Ghostbusters cast in cameo appearances would sweeten the reboot. When fans discovered they weren’t actually reprising their classic roles, things got messy. While Ghostbusters was the biggest comedy of 2016, the studio lost over $70 million. Fans of the film can continue the team’s adventures through comic books from IDW Publishing. Columbia Pictures Guess Who? The 1967 classic Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner dove in the world of interracial dating. The 2005 remake titled Guess Who?, however, managed to do the same in a sillier fashion. A major thing that was left out of the remake was the political bearing found in the original. Columbia Pictures Godzilla (1998) 1998’s Godzilla was more about the toys than the actual film itself. Starring Matthew Broderick, the film managed to make $379 million worldwide. While those numbers look good, the movie was still a flop due to its high budget. Fortunately, Hollywood learned their lesson with the beloved 2014 remake. TriStar Pictures Fantastic Four (2015) Comic book fans were completely upset when Fox announced a reboot of Fantastic Four. Everyone wanted Marvel Studios to finally secure rights to bring this family into the Marvel Cinematic Universe. In protest, fans decided to boycott the reboot, which became one of 2015’s most poorly reviewed movies. Thankfully, Fantastic Four will finally be in the right hands due to the Fox/Disney merger.
