Remakes are a tricky business, always have been and always will. They have a notorious habit of either bombing horrendously, such as the infamous 2006 remake of the Wicker Man with Nicholas Cage, or soaring beyond expectations, such as The Ring, which was heavily based off a Japanese film under the s...

From what I understand, the Pirates of the Caribbean movies have lost their luster, and audiences are tired of this seemingly neverending series.
