Another franchise gets the reboot treatment courtesy of The Transporter Refueled. Will fans welcome a new take or with this be a failure for the genre? BoxOffice takes a closer look at the commercial prospects.

The Transporter Refueled
(EuropaCorp)

PROS:

- The trailer has generated some positive reactions on social media.
- This could appeal to many of the same moviegoers that just turned Furious 7 into a colossal hit.
- This is likely to be a big hit in Europe. 

CONS:

- 2005's Transporter 2 with Jason Statham earned only $43 million in North America, so this isn't exactly a juggernaut franchise.
- Labor Day weekend is still the slowest weekend of the year at the box office.
