The Invaders are coming to remake your movies and only we can defend the Earth from the dreaded film remake.

Jun 29, 2016

"Release the Kraken!"

Those words were first shouted in 1981 in the now classic Desmond Davis film Clash of the Titans with effects by the incredible Ray Harryhausen. In 2010 Louis Leterrier remade Clash with modern effects to mixed reviews. Comedian Monty Scott joins the invasion team to see who would win in a fight, Harry Hamlin's Perseus versus Sam Worthington's Perseus, or Laurence Olivier's Zeus against Liam Neeson's Zeus. We pull out all our Greek mythology knowledge and take these two fantasy films to task the only way we know, in a Clash of the Titans!

Continuing our month long Fantasy Film June the Invaders remake an 80's fantasy classic. The highest grossing independent film of it's time, The Sword & the Sorcerer looked cool, but is a narrative mess with a great core idea. It's perfect for the Jason, Trish, & Sam to remake with today's audiences in mind.

The Sword & the Sorcerer starred Lee (Hateful Eight, Django Unchained) Horsley, Kathleen (Godfather Part II) Beller, Simon (Jaws 3-D) MacCorkindale, Richard (Halloween) Lynch, Richard (Night Court, House) Moll and directed by Albert Pyun. If that last name sounds familiar go back to listen to Ep.20 Remaking Cyborg where we take on another of Pyun's films.

Triple bladed swords, greedy tyrants, vengeful sorcerers, princesses in distress, pirate captains, dungeons, castles, this film has got it all and the kitchen sink. Don't miss this weeks episode, because it's going to be a wild ride.

In 1982 a retired body builder relatively new to acting got his big break as one of the the most iconic literary characters of all time. That character was Robert E. Howard's Conan the Barbarian, and that man was Arnold Schwarzenegger! Director John Milius co-wrote the script with Oliver Stone and had an all-star cast to support Arnold, like James Earl Jones, Max Von Sydow, Sandahl Bergman, and Mako. The movie is now considered a fantasy classic.

In 2011, after a failed sequel and many more failed attempts to get more Conan starring Arnold off the ground, a remake / re-imagining finally hit the big screen starring Jason Momoa, who, after a major role in HBO's Game of Thrones was no stranger to playing a barbarian. He was joined by Ron Pearlman, Rose McGowan, and Stephen Lang in this Marcus Nispel directed summer blockbuster. It didn't do so well...like really, really not well.

Richard Donner could do no wrong in the 1980's cultivating many hits like Lethal Weapon, The Goonies, Superman, Scrooged, and The Omen. In 1985 Donner directed Ladyhawke with Matthew Broderick, Rutger Hauer, Michelle Pfeiffer, Leo McKern, John Wood, Ken Hutchison, and Alfred Molina. While loved and appreciated at the time, the film was not a hit and has become a largely forgotten romantic, fantasy classic. That's where the Invasion of the Remake hosts come in, because they think it is ripe for a remake! Download now to find out how they would do it and who they would cast in a potential Ladyhawke remake!
