Subject: *shrugs* It's also worth noting that for franchises this old...

Production teams have to walk a tightrope with their plot, characters/actors, themes, etc in order to capture the most viewers... And I mean... You can't say this movie was created for today's generation, because with people like Arnie and Linda Hamilton in it, obviously it was trying to grab viewers from the 80s/90s and bring them back into theaters... And while we 30/40somethings do see movies, it's certainly not with as much frequency as people in their teens and 20s... Honestly if there was one big fail in this movie its that they were hoping the Schwarzenegger/Hamilton duo would be enough to make a profitable movie. But in all honesty... The moviegoing world has moved on from them. Youth sells. Old age... doesn't. I think the filmmakers just banked on the classic duo breathing new life into the franchise when what we needed was more Grace and Dani. Who knows? Maybe movie audiences would have liked it more had it obviously not pandered to bygone audiences... But Hollywood doesn't learn lessons easily. We know that by looking at all the terrible movie franchises that dragged on until they were a shadow of what once made their stories great.

Last of all, Hollywood is so desperate to keep money flowing that they really will try anything... And if they have to lose a few hundred million dollars in failed reboots like this to find their next multi-billion dollar franchise... It's worth it to them. Know what I mean?
