For most of its running time, this new trailer for the Robocop do-over shows us that there’s a man at the centre of this machine. I’m glad they’ve made space for this message in the marketing – not least because …
What’s next, a remake of Mamma Mia?
Still my preferred Chan Wook Park movie, Sympathy For Mr. Vengeance is one of the most brilliant emotional gymnasiums I have ever come across.
Katsuhide Motoki’s Subete wa Kimi ni Aeta kara, a Japanese Remake of Richard Curtis’ Love Actually.
Also including info on a Raid 2 fight sequence I previewed at Frightfest.
Cult Time Travel Drama The Butterfly Effect Getting A Do-Over From The Original’s Co-Writer-Director
A far smarter and more ambitious film than you might imagine, the original Butterfly Effect still didn’t quite click.
The new film’s details aren’t quite the same as in Tobe Hooper’s movie, and DeWitt’s character is just one of several significant shifts.
Though we’re being promised big budget action, I don’t think the plan will be for us to take Knight Rider entirely seriously.
The film is going to be a sequel, not a remake, despite many of the same plot points occurring. Compare that to the recent Evil Dead.

Including, for comparison, some video of the new Robocop undergoing reshoots this last weekend.
It’s been 30 years since Stephen King’s killer dog novel Cujo was adapted into a slightly batty picture. To mark the anniversary, the first film’s producers are now backing a do-over.
Like the Robocop remake and The Amazing Spider-Man, just to pull a couple of recent examples, the cast for Godzilla is shaping up to be very impressive, and loaded with actors of the highest calibre.
Here’s Your Black Hole News – The Film Will Be Written By Prometheus And The Darkest Hour’s Jon Spaihts
Spaiht’s working to a new take on the film, replacing the one developed by Pacific Rim’s Travis Beacham. The new premise is apparently “a big idea – philosophical and somewhat dark in tone.”
Details had been pretty scarce, besides whatever you would assume on the basis of the original film – ie. Moby Dick in space, with memorable robots.
The whole trailer will be online tomorrow, but here’s a little bit of Carrie magic in the meantime.
Joe Carnahan left the remake of Death Wish after failing to agree with MGM on who should lead the picture. Word at the time was that the studio wanted Bruce Willis but Carnahan didn’t. They also spoke with Brad Pitt and Will Smith, apparently.
