Gremlins 3 Remake? Reboot? Sequel?

There has been a lot of rumors and discussion regarding Gremlins 3 actually being a remake or reboot instead of a sequel, and looking at the current Hollywood climate, it sure seems likely, but why?

Logically a remake would attract more theatregoers than Gremlins 3 would.
Fans of the gremlins franchise will see anything Gremlins in the theatre, be it Gremlins 3 or a remake/reboot. So those are guaranteed customers and do not factor in to the math.

However, as it has been nearly 20 years since we have last seen Gremlins in any form (commercials, games,  and DVD releases not withstanding) there is an entire generation of potential ticket sales that have never even seen Gremlins in the media.  Those customers are unlikely to see a sequel to a movie they never have seen before. Sure some might rent the previous films but they frankly do not have the legacy that other long-dormant movie franchises (like Ghostbusters) do.

Let’s try it this way:

Say there are a million people who are guaranteed ticket sales. They love the previous movies, and would absolutely see a new one in the theatre, regardless of it being a reboot or sequel.

Remake: 1 Million
Sequel: 1 Million

Now let’s take the rest of the moviegoing poulation, and pretend it is 10 million more people. They are undecided.

Undecided: 10m
Remake: 1m
Sequel: 1m

Of that 10m undecided a good number are going to be under the age of 18, as most people who make up the bulk of ticket sales are youth. Let’s number them at 7 Million.

Undecided Adults: 3m
Undecided Youth: 7m
Remake: 1m
Sequel: 1m

Here is where we diverge.

{Rumor Mill} Gremlins 3 A Prequel?? & Deleted Scenes updated!

Heyas all!

First off, the Deleted scenes section has been updated with a few more scenes from the first Gremlins film, so check that out when you have a chance!

Ok on to the Rumors…

There has been quite a bit of talk about Gremlins 3 being a prequel set in china, telling the story of a young Mr. Wing and how he came about finding the Mogwai.

This is simply wishful thinking & rumor, there is no basis to this speculation at all. There has been no word officially on Gremlins 3 in about a year now, and while a prequel is possible, it is just people talking.

I assure you when there is movement on Gremlins 3 or anything Gremlins related, you will hear it here first!

Keep the info coming!
