Is there an 80's Renaissance happening?

With the release of Mad Max: Fury Road (2015), Ghostbusters (2016), Alien: Covenant (2017) and Blade Runner: 2049 (2017) to name a few examples, are we seeing a revival of 80’s nostalgia in film? Perhaps it is merely Hollywood cashing in on established titles?

  • I am from the 80s and this topic is scaring me. Movies today are waaaaay better. – Munjeera 5 years ago
  • I often complain about how Hollywood are struggling to come up with original content, not forgetting that Child's Play and Beetlejuice (both 1988 films) will have new sequels released this year. It was a decade of great films, though, and I wouldn't be entirely opposed to an 80s Renaissance. – nikkileelucas 5 years ago
