What is better than reliving your childhood? The answer is NOTHING! From a specific aroma to a certain scene from your favorite movie can bring back the memories of childhood and trust me it’s the best thing possible. Hollywood is experimenting with the idea of making the audience feel nostalgic, some of the projects paid off well while some destroyed the legacy of our childhood favorite. Well, 2019 is big when it comes to the remake and reboots of old movies. The list of movies got fans excited and we are eagerly waiting for these movies to make us feel old.
Have you gone through the list of movies that are scheduled to be released this year? It seems that the majority of them are the remake and reboots. It seems like Hollywood is utilizing the psychological strategy to sell the product by giving the audience a chance to go back to the past. From “The Lion King” to “Charlie’s Angels” everything old is new! Some of the remakes released in 2018 was a hit including “Cape Fear” and “Scarface”. The best thing about these remakes is the utilization of the latest advanced technology which can give a new life to our favorite movies. A more dynamic cast, a sharper script or just better production values can make an old story shine like its brand new.
All is not good though! ‘Mowgli: Legend of the Jungle’ failed miserably despite being the reboot of one of the biggest hits of all times. The adaptations were too dark for the audience, though the use of technology was appreciated, the movie lack the focus on the characters and the audience was furious. Despite being ups and downs associated with the remakes, we are looking forward to the remakes announced to be released this year. Here is the list of movies and what you can expect from the reboots!
