An Infographic Guide To Film Reboots & Remakes

There are two reactions to news of a movie remake: a small, plucky number of fans will make positive noises about the renewed relevance of a classic, while the noisy majority will flip tables, bang fists and take to social media in a rabid frenzy of anguish.

We usually fall into the latter. 

The good people of Paste and designer Becky Delaware have come up with a tool to help us get our anger in a state of order; the following chart highlights the popular trend amongst film studios to remake, reboot and revisit classic film titles in a bid to flood box offices. 

From the positive (Batman) to the overwhelmingly worrying (Dodgeball, Space Jam), here's a short history of major movie revivals.
