Green Lantern is definitely the most disappointing for me,I was expecting so much more,boxoffice-wise and movie-wise.

To me, Conan was the worst flop of the summer. The rest can be argued that due to their international grosses, they broke even, whereas Conan didn't break even domestically or internationally...



Oh my, Conan did terribly.

Wasn't expecting much, but this result is just pathetic. I actually wonder why people in Hollywood think projects like that would be succesful.

The truth is,they dont have that many choices left.They ran out of ideas a while ago.

I'm pretty sure they must have some options. If they remake Gone with the Wind I will personally egg every one of their houses!

All past big movies will be eventually remade.Even the Harry Potter movies in 20-30 years.Titanic too,among other examples.

And they will all bomb. The only type of movies that should be remade are those that sucked, but had potential (for example Ben-Hur, the famous version with Charleton Heston, is actually the second remake of a movie that originally bombed). If a movie is already massively succesful, and considered a classic (like Gone with the Wind, which is universally acclaimed by critics, and actually has the highest cinemat attendance ever, the most watched telecast ever etc.) then a remake of it (which will no doubt be inferior in every way) will bomb hard.

Iconic movies shouldn't be remade!!!
