Everyone loves a good remake, right? How about a sequel? Then again, you always have the prequels as well, or even an extension of an original or just a flat out blockbuster in waiting.
No matter how you slice it, the movies are pure magic. And what comes before the movie is the ultimate sales pitch, and that starts with the movie trailer and continues with actors making their rounds on morning television and chatting it up with late night hosts.
But even the most anticipated or talked about movies, particularly the ones that have had predecessors or are being redone for whatever reason, either sink or swim with fans. A lot of the collective groans come from movies that have already been made or are being deemed as "reboots" of sorts. Some of those actually are part of a new brand of movies, a series of movies.
Nothing is more evident in that regard than the new "Batman v. Superman," which has Henry Cavill reprising his role as Superman, but Ben Affleck playing the role that Christian Bale just finished not that long ago.
While most fans weren't interested in seeing the always unlikeable Affleck take over a role that was so tremendously done by Bale and especially director Christopher Nolan, but the few trailers put out are hard not to like. The concept and introduction of a new, modern day Lex Luthor and a new Wonder Woman. There might just be enough diversion for fans to forget that Affleck is trying to take the reigns of a role that no one wants redone.
