All the 007 movies have this special formula that seems to be working very well. And, of course, there’s always a special car.
If you look at today’s movie releases, it feels like everything’s been done before and the original ideas are all, but spent.
If you look at some of Hollywood’s trends, you can notice a pattern: they’re rehashing old movies. The writers have almost entirely abandoned the concept of new ideas, so the remakes and reboots come out one by one.
Iconic roles can usually be locked down to a single face. Indiana Jones will always be Harrison Ford, Luke Skywalker will always be Mark Hamill. There’s a certain special connection you can make between a character and an actor if they become one and the same. There’s loads of iconic roles that have been played by different actors, however.
