But I do agree that Hollywood ran out of ideas years ago.
I think that Hollywood finds it easier to not try, and make original movies since it's unproven, and a risk.
Try making new Horror movies with New Horror Villains.
This Judge Dredd movie has no relation to the 1995 embarassment.
Also yes it's not Remake it's a Reboot the same as The Amazing Spider Man.
A Remake is to make a movie with the same characters, and story that was already made. There are changes but it's still the same story with the same characters.
Examples Cape Fear, King Kong, Dawn of the Dead, The Haunting, The Mummy, etc.
A Reboot is a movie that has the same main character, and other characters that were used but not related to the movie, or movies that were made before.
The Amazing Spider Man
The Punisher Warzone
Captain America The First Avenger
