5 Movie Reboots Gone Terribly Wrong

Filmmaking is all about taking risks. Greater the risks better the rewards. Then, of course, the studios opt to play it safe by investing into popular franchises. These franchises or single films have an already established fanbase and regardless how the movie turns out, it’s a known fact that fans would flock the theaters to watch it. It’s sure-shot way of making a quick buck. While some desperately need a breath of fresh air (the Batman movies before Christopher Nolan took over) others are best left untouched. We bring you five reboots that were just plain terrible.

Fantastic Four (2015)
To be honest, the previous films weren't really that great but at least they were coherent in their narration. This movies had insane amounts of plot holes and bad narration. So much so that director Josh Trank blamed 20th Century Fox for wrecking his movie.

Ghostbusters (2016)
The all-female lead cast of Ghostbusters was a massive change from the original that detracted many fans. Some who were open to the idea too dissed the movie once they watched it. It was loud, obnoxious and over-the-top and sucked out every element of humor according to some fans. Needless to say, the movie did not do well.

The Wicker Man (2006)
Oh boy! This movie was just bad. From acting to execution, everything about it just went terribly wrong. And who can forget the infamous scene that had Nic Cage yelling “Oh, no, not the bees! Not the bees!”?

Godzilla (1998)
Even though this movie by Roland Emmerich managed to amass a whooping $380 million worldwide, it was panned by critics and fans alike. The film was nominated for several Razzies, including Worst Remake or Sequel and with that Tristar’s plans for a Godzilla trilogy went out of the window.

Ram Gopal Varma Ki Aag (2007)
If you were secretly hoping for a Bollywood movie on this list, this is it. Ram Gopal Varma Ki Aag was a reboot of Sholay, the highest grossing Indian film, loved by audience and critic alike. Varma not just managed to murder the classic but also failed to produce a decent film.
