Re: what's up with snow white?
There are several reasons in my Opinion.
- The biggest of course is that the movie industry is in a slow decline. As their quality has declined so has their inventiveness. Also as sales decline it becomes riskier to try new things instead of rehashing older but lower risk movies.
- A more indirect reason is due to the target audiences changing. Movies like Harry Potter and Twilight show that there is a very large market for teenage movie viewers. As less and less adults go out to watch movies the industry increasingly starts to cater to the audience that still goes to watch... kids and teenagers.
- Another reason is because of the increasing competition the movie industry faces from piracy and also competing forms of entertainment. 50 years ago there was radio, phone, tv, and movies. Now there are cellphones, computers, the internet, ridiculous amounts of TV channels, video game consoles, etc which dilutes the Movie industries power.
