As usual Hollywood shows how stupid they think we are. They mistakenly believe more of "the common people" will financially support a movie if its presented as "religious" from a bunch that is mostly anti religion. Not counting of course scientology or islam. Im spending more money on buying up old classic movies on tape and DVD than I have in a theater in years.
Hollywood is always re-inventing.
But before you knock it, remember that Holywood has spread, more than anything or anyone else, the essence of America.
And Hollywood films consistently run a profit, not a deficit, in US trade. No one else can say that.
