Films will continue to flop because no one wants to see old ass 70s/80s/90s franchises especially those starring 70 year olds.
Did you when you were 14 years old pine for franchises from the 1960s starring Marlon Brando or Warren Beatty? I'm guessing probably not.
You just don't realize that this is happening again because you think the world revolves around your personal tastes.
The movie business has also clearly changed to the point where nothing makes money aside from like 6 different franchises/genre types. There's rarely any action, comedy, romance, drama hits any more period. The fact is most of these franchise reboots from the 70s/80s/90s of the last 7-8 years especially have flopped. It's not just like a case of one or two.
Alien Covenant had "woke" politics too? Rambo too? Men In Black also? Indepdence Day 2 as well? Robocop as well? The Predator too? Total Recall? Blade Runner? Like all of these recent remakes are "woke"? Gimme a fucking break.
Cherry picking and strawman arguments are all you guys have left, huh? You obviously didn't read, or maybe couldn't comprehend what I said, even though I laid it out quite simply for you. I won't try to explain it, again, as I'm kinda getting bored. I will look forward to the next woke masterpiece and the excuses as to why its wokeness is not why it flopped.
By the way, 61% of the audience was 25 years or older at Endgame opening weekend. So, no, the younger woke crowd are not Hollywood's bread and butter. They may try to appease them by virtue signalling, but it is proven over and over that those aren't the ones filling up the seats, no matter how hard they wish to believe it is. And once those kids get closer to 30, quite a few of them get red pilled when they are struck by reality.
