There are plenty of movie remakes that just did not live up to its predecessors. Footloose is one; Fame is another; plus there are all those disastrous horror reboots we can’t unsee. Then there are those rare occasions when the reimagining is better than the original. (True Grit and Ocean’s Eleven come to mind.) And we think the latest edition of Fantastic Four may eventually grow to be a part of the latter group…

News just broke on the casting for the remake of the 2005 film. While we weren’t totally behind the idea to begin with — considering the original came out less than ten years ago — we’re completely feeling the talents that have signed up for the flick. Michael B. Jordan, Miles Teller, Kate Mara and Jamie Bell, who are some of the hottest up-and-comers of the moment, are tapped to portray The Human Torch, Mr. Fantastic, The Invisible Woman and The Thing, respectively. That’s huge! So, in honor of the buzz, here are ten upcoming movie remakes you’ll actually want to see:


Godzilla

ORIGINAL RELEASE: 1954

REBOOT RELEASE: May 16, 2014

It's been years since a new Godzilla flick has graced the big screen. And Bryan Cranston, Elizabeth Olsen and Aaron Taylor-Johnson are all a part of this one! Box. Office. Gold.

Planet of the Apes

ORIGINAL RELEASE: 1968

REBOOT RELEASE: Dawn of the Planet of the Apes due July 11, 2014

The Mark Wahlberg edition may've not been all that, but we personally enjoyed the James Franco prequel, Rise of the Planet of the Apes, so we have high hopes for the latest.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles

ORIGINAL RELEASE: 1990

REMAKE RELEASE: August 8, 2014

Although the plot's unknown, and the idea is silly when you think about it, we're anxious to see how the Megan Fox film plays out.

REMAKE RELEASE: December 19, 2014

Poltergeist

REMAKE RELEASE: February 13, 2015

Yes, scary movies can be a disaster when remade, but we're holding out hope considering legendary filmmaker Sam Raimi is attached to the project.
