Setting out to remake a movie is no easy task to accomplish. On top of having to deliver a new and exciting spin to an old story you must also find a way to please a new, often younger, audience while still remaining faithful to the original so as not to alienate the long time fans. 1982’s “The Thing” and 2010’s “True Grit” are both great examples of remakes done right. However we all know that remakes can also go horribly, horribly wrong, as is the case with the made for television version of “The Shining”. Take a look at these upcoming movie remakes and give us your opinion.

A Nightmare on Elm Street

That’s right, New Line Cinema is looking at a return for everyone’s favorite Christmas sweater wearing villain. The franchise already received one reboot in 2010, but it failed to impress, holding only a 15% on rotten tomatoes. The Horror industry continues to bring out tons of fans, ensuring that even if this reboot doesn’t break the box office, it will definately bring out plenty of people who want to check out the movie for purely nostalgia purposes.

Who didn’t love Robin Williams portrayal of Alan Parrish in the 1995 original? While nothing is likely to replace that, we do get to look forward to both Kevin Heart and Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, along with Karen Gillan who was in Guardians of the Galaxy, but is most well known for her long run as the Doctor’s Companion in BBC’s Doctor Who.

The ExpendaBelles

Yes, you read that right, it looks like 2010’s “The Expendables” is going to be the latest remake to be done with an all female cast. Sylvester Stallone, who co-wrote as well as stared in the original has stated that he is in no way involved in the production of ExpendaBelles. Robert Luketic is set to direct, with an all star cast full of amazing leading ladies.

Whether you love remakes, or hate them, it doesn’t look like they are going anywhere anytime soon as Hollywood continues to recycle the movies of our past into new versions for younger generations.
