It doesn't take much to work out why as we can "look forward" to such sparklers as:
- Pirates of the Caribbean (5)
- Transformers (5)
- Alien (6)
- Planet of the Apes (3)
which are all sequels or franchises.
I've said it time again, while they feed us dull, unimaginative CGI fuelled fodder, we will continue to turn our backs on them. Start making some new and original stuff with fresh faces, good plots and proper acting and you'll see me back at the cinema again.
The ball's in their court.
