When a movie franchise becomes universally recognized as a big success, it is almost automatic for fans to want more from it. This is what makes the perpetuation of movie sequels very usual. Of course, some of those big stories cannot simply be prolonged with continuations and new plot twists. After all, not a lot of movie franchises have the creative genius and a whole galaxy to back it up ala-Star Wars Universe style. This prompt creators to revive successful titles by way of franchise reboots. In some cases, this formula surely works. When you have an established title and some good casting to create a fresh movie adaptation of a long-celebrated story, who would say no? However, some things are probably better left untouched to keep its charm that once captivated audiences.
While some movie remakes give off at least the same vibe and box-office success as their original versions, some simply fail to grasp even a portion of its predecessor's luck. There are different reasons for a franchise reboot's failure. It could be due to exaggerated expectations to overperform or simply because of inferior production. Whatever they may be, big studios have had their share of failures when trying to milk its cash cows for more. Well, having more of something worth watching is great. But without the right tools and vision to create new versions of legendary movie franchises, box office bombs are almost guaranteed. Us, the fans, can only wish that our current favorite titles are worthy of a remake to happen 20 years or so from now. In this list, we have some of the biggest franchise reboots that flopped at the box office.
