Many popular classics such as Poltergeist, Adventures In Babysitting, Disney’s Flight of the Navigator (slated for a 2011 release), and RoboCop are in talks of being remade. There is also talks of a remake of Disney’s The Black Hole.
While some movies that were remakes, such as Disney’s Freaky Friday and The Parent Trap, have done well at the box office; others, such as the recent remake of Fame, which was both a critical and box-office failure.
It’s like Hollywood has lost its sense of originality!
Don’t get me wrong, however, because some movies do deserve a remake – Disney’s Flight of the Navigator being one of them mainly due to the technological advances that have been made since 1986. One must ask though when is enough enough?
