What are your thoughts about this?

I will watch it but I dunno if it can live up to the original. Considering it is written by Kurt Wimmer (the same guy who wrote the Total Recall remake) it's hard to say.

I am very keen to see it when it comes out Christmas day. One area that could be improved on is some really cool surfing scenes but hopefully not too much C.G.I. to ruin it.

https://youtu.be/wNUL29xQ5kQ - just watched the trailer Bernie and in my opinion it looks like it will fall well short of the awesome original.

They seem to be going into remake overdrive these days,have they run out of ideas?

I think It looks watchable at best and i'm not overkeen on either of the two leads,it could turn out better than predicted though but I do doubt it,I'll just have to wait and see.

No, just no to all of these remakes. I understand it's gone on in the industry for decades, but the new remakes are bad.

I don't agree with the remakes either. Stick with the original. If you are going to do a remake it better be damn good. Example is Scorsese's Cape Fear. Remakes are usually of classic films too. That's why I was surprised when Total Recall got remade. I never watched it but I heard only bad things.

Yeah, the leads look kinda bogus. I never heard of them. I will mainly want to watch it for something to do / curiosity. Do I really think it's going to be good? Probably not.

The writer is awful (Total Recall remake) and after watching that trailer I am pretty sure I won't see it. It looks pretty bad and the acting looks bogus dudes.

One of my favorite old school classic movies is a Imitation of Life, the Lana Turner version. I didn't know that it was a remake until I watched it on TCM and the host said it was a remake.
