There is a market for that big, epic movie. There always will be, yes a lot of movies have action in them, doesn't mean it won't work. There's talk about doing 2061 now. They did 2010 back in the eighties so why does everyone think that 1) people won't enjoy when films like Titanic
, Life of Pi
, The King's Speech
, and many others do so well and are clearly made and 2) that a modern remake will be so bad?
We're not stupid. We're not troglodytes. We're not savages compared to the moviegoers of the past. We still make good shit.
