Proof of Cinematic Hard Times


Originality is clearly dead in at least 90% of movieland, studios want to concentrate on killing your nostalgic childhood dreams, rebooting franchises less than eight years old, adapting any old comic book series that three or more executives have read for ten seconds and in some cases, murdering them (hello Spirit), and sequelling and prequelling the bejeezus out of anything. Yet there is always a vast awareness to pick up the next potential franchise or moneyspinner that will make a considerable profit in these cash strapped times. Obviously, the winning answer right now is:

MAKE A FILM BASED ON POPULAR BOARD GAME, BATTLESHIP.

Fuck off now. Seriously.
