Back to the Future is the Most Wanted Reboot, According to Random Poll

MSDBATO EC001

There’s an interesting little poll making the rounds this week that seems to be causing a minor uproar among film fans. THR recently asked over 2000 adults a series of questions related to movie franchises and apparently the big takeaway is that people really want to see a Back to the Future reboot. Of course, that statement has people freaking out but the thing is… it’s not entirely true. They specifically asked how likely people would be to watch a new movie from a handful of franchises and over 71% of respondents said they would be very likely or somewhat likely to see a new Back to the Future movie. There is no explicit mention of it being a remake or reboot. It is also a bit unfair because Back to the Future is one of the few non-active franchises on the poll, so obviously people would find a new installment to be a big deal. Other franchises that ranked high on the list include Toy Story, Indiana Jones, Jurassic Park and… Shrek. Way down at the bottom was Twilight. The franchise rankings from that specific question are listed below but you check out the full breakdown of all the questions here. Do you agree with these results?

    Kind of funny that this is the one franchise that will never get a reboot. Terminator being so far down the list may explain the failures of those reboots.

    Just who is asking for these reboots? Are these ideas from people too young to have appreciated the films in their day and don’t have the intellectual horsepower to appreciate it now that it’s not “new”?
