Battleship and other movie bombs

It goes back and forth. They get cautious... and then Cameron comes along with Avatar, or something like G.I. Joe or Transformers does well without particularly good reviews. It's been a problem since the days of the silents - one film maker (or group of artists, i.e.a good director with a good cast, working from a good script, funded/led by a good producer) make a ton of money with something, so every other studio tried to replicate that... and they all bomb and lose money. And they think the idea has lost its novelty or appeal...but then someone else will do something even more derivative, and make a fortune with it, and the cycle starts again.

There's always a huge risk, and a lot of unpredictable variables. But it's like sports - on any given day, half the teams playing are guaranteed to lose no matter how good they are... but they go ahead and play anyway.
