Wondering why there's only reboots and remakes lately?

This Variety article about the Jupiter Ascending flop sums it all. It goes along the lines of what I've been saying for years.

There is no lack of creativity in Hollywood.

Movies are expensive, and investors are simply afraid of throwing money in a film that audience won't go to see.

Investors are afraid to throw money in a film that will end up free to download from torrents hours after the premiere. Sometimes even before the premiere.

When something new comes out, give it a shot, try it! I know it's an expensive try, but see it as an investment and support for a studio who might want to try again something new next time. Otherwise, the message they'll get is: stick to remakes and reboots.
