Let's be honest: we knew this day was coming. Let's not try and mount some kind of moral outrage about it. When superhero franchises can be totally rebooted five years after the last entry, anything is up for grabs, and any popular film that still isn't a viable franchise (see: "Die Hard," where Bruce Willis is still mobile enough for a fifth installment) will have the remake vultures circling. But yes. "Point Break" is heading for a remake.

In the era of no-original-ideas Hollywood, even studio suits have to admit that rolling the dice on a "Salt" sequel seems a bit ludicrous. The Angelina Jolie spy film seems impressive when you look at the numbers -- just under $300 million worldwide -- but when you break it down, it looks less enticing. The film brought in $118 million domestic, just a shade over it's $110 million budget. Overseas, the film fared better with a $175 million haul. But is anyone really asking for a sequel? The film is all but a distant memory and that other Angelina Jolie spy movie from last year, "The Tourist," was met with even worse reviews than "Salt" and with both films opening at number two on their respective box office weekends, is banking on another big budget Angelina Jolie movie really the smart play here?
