Dud re-makes that did the business

Gladiator: Ridley Scott's 2000 movie was essentially a remake of the failed epic The Fall of the Roman Empire (1964).

Gladiator grossed $500m, and won Oscars for Best Picture and Russell Crowe.

Ocean's 11: Steven Soderbergh's 2001 remake was praised for outshining the 1960 original.

Led by an all-star cast (Clooney, Pitt, Damon), the makers over-egged the pudding with two disappointing sequels.
