The first trailer for Stephen King’s Pet Sematary remake has arrived:
Yes, Hollywood is out of ideas.
looks interesting. : )
It looks suitably creepy but the acting seems pretty wooden. I'll probably prefer the original (plus it has Fred Gwynne).
I like the original but just barely! (Not one of my favourites)
Superhero movies and remakes. Is it possible the Hollywood creativity well has run dry, or is this just creative/intellectual laziness?
It's probably cheaper to remake/reimagine existing material than it is to create new.
Good point. I didn't think of any financial factor.
Any good new fiction out there ready for the silver screen?
You can't beat Fred Gwynne's diction in that movie! "Sometawms, dead is bettawww!"
After It was so profitable, I expect a deluge of Stephen King remakes.
Coming, in 2020, Misery, starring Will Ferrell and Melissa McCarthy.
Ya know, not to threadcrap or anything, but I would watch that.
The older movie is a classic. I'll definitely watch this once it's streaming.
the original scared me
Yeah, it's one of the good Stephen King adaptations that's actually scary.
There are other movies based on Stephen King books or short stories that I can see being done better than the original. One would be "Thinner".
I think "Pet Semetery" was the first SK book I read. Really a great book, IMO, and the movies was pretty good also.
No thanks, I'll stick with the original adaptation. All this offers is the slick production of modern film, the type I do not enjoy. No subtlety, over produced, loud, and ultimately disposable..
That's usually my take on it too. Except for when it comes to adapting Stephen King. Nobody's caught the spirit of his writing well yet, except for Stand By Me. That film did him justice. Only one, IMO.
First one scared me to death,
Tell that to the writers of the 50,000 unsold screenplays registered at the Writers Guild every year. Its more about NOT TAKING A CHANCE, kinda like the thinking of all those studios who turned down "Star Wars."
Wait did Stephen king misspell cemetery or is my mind eroding?
I think a kid was supposed to have made a sign or something.
double post (sorry)
But they would ruin it by making it a dark comedy. blech
Hated the book, hated the 1980s movie... I ain't gonna see it. Too depressing.
At :25 in the trailer, that truck blasting by made me jump outta my seat! I'll be going to see it fer sure!
