I wonder what it would be like for a James Bond film to be billed as not made for James Bond fans or if Serenity were billed as not for Firefly fans or if a Star Wars films was billed as "not for Star Wars fans."
was a box office bomb only generating a 39 million dollar worldwide gross.
After you factor in advertising and theater share, it lost a ton of money, much like Star Trek: Nemesis
And I thought the whole reason they rebooted Bond was to give people a jumping on point in the franchise?
I think Bond's 'jumping on point', is more of a fictional construct. What really changes? There's some lip service...they use the first story, but that's really about it. It's certainly not like Bond Begins
