Will the upcoming reboot of ST movie dive bomb like I Want to Believe has?
The problem is that the producers are trying too hard to please non fans of the franchises. They are trying to please everyone, and end up pleasing no
one with some bland easy watching generalised rubbish. Goodness knows how many test audiences they have run IWTB by and what rubbish decisions they
made from focus groups!
They water down the franchise for non fans and they try and add some patronising bits to keep the fans on board. When will they learn that tactic
Here's an idea, just make a good movie.
And considering that it is the fans of those shows that have made the big bucks for those producers don’t they think they should put the fans first?
Especially if they want box office to be above 50% cost of the movie! Make a brilliant franchise movie for the fans that no one else would ’get’
and the fans would go in droves. Box office solved! Not make a movie for the guy who has just wandered into the cinema and goes to see IWTB because he
has already seen Dark Knight last week!
