    ‘Dumbo’ Live Action Remake Gets Teaser (Video)

    Director Tim Burton is directing another of Disney’s new slate of live action remakes of animated classics (his second, if you count Alice in Wonderland as belonging to that stable). It’s Dumbo, a teaser for which hit the internet today. “Tim Burton directs live-action Dumbo remake” is probably enough to tell you all you need to know regarding whether you’re […]

    ‘Widows’: New Trailer for Crime Thriller (Video)

    Ocean’s 8 is not the only movie this year about a group of women getting into the field of crimes for profit. It turns out there’s another film about that concept, one that’s sure to be a lot more intense than the comedic caper of an Ocean’s… movie. It’s called Widows, and here’s what it’s all about: “Widows is […]

  • ‘Suspiria’ Remake: First Teaser Trailer (Video)

    ‘Suspiria’ Remake: First Teaser Trailer (Video)

    Dario Argento’s Suspiria is one of the greatest horror films ever made, an eyeball-searing phantasmagoria that has to be seen, and seen, and seen to be believed. Some party of crazy fools have decided to remake it, and in what may be the biggest shocker of all, it actually looks to be pretty good, judging by the […]

  • ‘Papillon’ Remake Gets Trailer (Video)

    ‘Papillon’ Remake Gets Trailer (Video)

    It doesn’t get talked about as much as other 70s classics, but 1973’s Papillon starring Steve McQueen and Dustin Hoffman is still pretty good. That’s pretty much the only qualification to get a new version these days, and so a trailer for a remake staring Charlie Hunnam in the McQueen role (no comment) and Rami Malek in the […]

    ‘SuperFly’ Remake Gets Trailer (Video)

    The 1972 film Super Fly is one of those essential classics that many people haven’t seen, opting instead to begin and end their journeys with Curtis Mayfield’s much more iconic soundtrack album of the same name. So perhaps it’s all to the good that we’re getting a super-slick new version from Director X this summer, which goes […]

  • ‘#WarGames’: Interactive TV Series Gets Teaser (Video)

    ‘#WarGames’: Interactive TV Series Gets Teaser (Video)

    You’re probably familiar with the 1983 film WarGames, in which Matthew Broderick saves the world from nuclear annihilation by playing a game with a military supercomputer. This premise makes the movie a natural fit for a remake in the nascent era of interactive TV, which is why the new version has itself a brand new hashtag […]

  • ‘Heathers’ TV Series Adaptation Gets Trailer (Video)

    ‘Heathers’ TV Series Adaptation Gets Trailer (Video)

    If I had written this article a month ago, it would have been from the point of view of a 30-year-old man who had not seen the movie Heathers, despite its reputation as an essential classic of 1980s American cinema. But I happened to watch the film over holiday break, which makes me all the more […]

  • ‘Death Wish’ Remake with Bruce Willis: Trailer (Video)

    ‘Death Wish’ Remake with Bruce Willis: Trailer (Video)

    The original 1974 film Death Wish depicted New York City as a totally violent, crime-ridden dystopia. Now, 43 years later, the United States has a president that seems to have gotten much of his ideas about the world outside his own golden castle from movies just like it, so I guess it’s weirdly appropriate that […]

  • ‘Death Race 2050’: New Red Band Trailer (Video)

    ‘Death Race 2050’: New Red Band Trailer (Video)

    The classic exploitation film Death Race 2000 has already been remade once, as just Death Race. But now it appears that it’s getting a second lap, and in a spirit that’s much closer to the original’s (perhaps thanks to the involvement of producer Roger Corman). It’s Death Race 2050, and a new red band trailer […]

    ‘Beauty and the Beast’ Live-Action Remake Gets New Teaser (Video)

    If you love stories about vicious beasts falling in love with beautiful women (and vice-versa), the upcoming live-action remake of Disney‘s animated classic Beauty and the Beast is almost certainly already on your radar. But nevertheless, Disney has released a new teaser for the film, which is set to premiere in a couple of months. […]
