PostSubject: Why film adaptations of classic TV shows so often disappoint and how to fix it    Sun Mar 26, 2017 7:28 pm

There's no truth to the rumour that the last original movie idea departed Hollywood recently on a slow boat to China. That happened years ago. The dominant business in Tinseltown is now reproduction: repeating (sequels), revisiting (prequels) and recasting (rebooting). Cannibalism is the new best practice. Why spend $50 million to advertise new characters and an unfamiliar story when you can base a movie on TV characters that already have a wide following?



Out now or soon to open here are big-screen versions of CHiPS, Baywatch, Wonder Woman, Power Rangers and Ninjago (a Lego movie). Those are all based on TV shows. There have been many others in the past two years and the trend will continue into 2018 with new films from TV franchises that have gone mega on film: Mission: Impossible, Transformers, Star Trek and a third Spongebob Squarepants movie.
