    Meh

    Original isn't great or anything but still meh

    Maybe it will be good or maybe it wont. I will not get my hopes up on it

    Honestly feels a bit like that crappy wicker man remake trailer which well was terrible

    What, no Zelda in the trailer? Sorry John Lithgow, but Fred Gwynne ruled your role beforehand.

    Yeah I love the Lith as much as the next guy, but you can't replace Fred Gwynne.

    Original sucks.

    Hopefully this is interesting. Cast looks good.

    That drawl of his was just haunting, and perfect, in the original. All of my favorite quotes in that movie are from him.

    It's a teaser trailer, they obviously don't want to show you too much (eg: Gage, Zombie Church etc) Also, I'm pretty sure Zelda was the woman in the rocking chair.

    I like it...the music and cinematography from this teaser is on point!

    No money from me. A re-hash of a book that didn't need to be a book in the first place, let alone a movie.

    Hey Hollywood, sometimes dead is better.

    You should have left the original movie alone.

    I read the book last year, so I’ll probably see it just to see how faithful it is to the source material. Apart from the daughter/son reversal, the trailer makes it look relatively faithful. And if it is, then I’m really looking forward to seeing how they do the foggy area between the sematary and the cemetery, and the residents within.

    Can you think of a movie/screenplay idea that is worth a few hundred million? I didn’t think so

    I’m not saying they are easy to think of, look up the thread “Restart the Hollywood”. I’m saying original movie ideas not based off of books or any which way and such are very difficult to write. Unless of course you want to see the story of a young Indian boy who is nothing but a disappointment to his overarching parents causing him to run away and eventually create nothing substantial of his life besides a brief interaction he has with the village elder. And I explain why movies are so similar, proven ideas make money. And most stories throughout history are various iterations of the same overall plot arc.

    That looks like it could be good for a few jump scares.

    Oh hai, Zelda!
