Hollywood running out of ideas and rebooting one too many classic franchises lol They just don't care at this point.

At least, this movie looks like a good one. Good chance I might check it out when it releases at June.

Probably because of Black Panther. Hollywood after that black dollar again. Some shit will be hit or miss, but there's going to be some good movies getting greenlit too.

I loved the original Shaft but that movie came out in an era when the best we could be on film was a street-level tough guy. Black Panther was one of the few films to elevate the status of the black heroes on film to the world stage, so I hope the people in charge at the studios don't think that a return to street heroes is a continuation of Black Panther's success.

I do agree, we are seeing too many remakes of old movies and TV show, also Superhero movies which I have no problem of but they need to come up with some new stuff but at the same time can lead up to failure

Agreed.

The era for which Shaft would work has passed. This is why you can't make Miami Vice work today. That phenomenon took place in a specific cultural zeitgeist that no longer exists.

They turned Shaft into a buddy comedy! Not the Shaft I remember but looks like fun. I'm in.

It's not really a remake or a reboot if it references the previous movies. It's a sequel...
