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

Jun 28, 2017

This week we travel to the fantasy world of Krull (1983). Here there is magic, evil creatures, cyclops, seers of the future, crystal spiders and a great Beast bent on ruling the universe. It also happens to be a childhood favorite of some of the hosts here at Invasion of the Remake. This cult fantasy film may have been a box office flop in 1983, but we think it is ripe for a remake, Invaders style. After all something has to film the vacuum left by Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit. Listen to this weeks episode and see if our version is worthy of filling that void.

Surely not a Airplane episode? Absolutely, and don't call me Shirley. When the Zucker brothers were looking for a new project they stumbled upon an obscure airplane disaster film called Zero Hour! (1957). It was overly dramatic, had an absurd concept, and was hilarious in its sincerity. It really only needed a little push over the edge to become farce. That farce became Airplane! (1980) and began a new era of comedic spoof movies, reinventing the career of Leslie Nielsen. Airplane! took serious dramatic actors like Robert Hayes, Julie Hagerty, Lloyd Bridges, Peter Graves, and Robert Stack into new comedic territory, creating a comedy classic. Invasion of the Remake takes to the skies as we explore a comedy remake of a drama, and remembers not to eat the fish. Like, share, and subscribe!

Can the smallest cars be part of one of the largest gold heists ever conceived? Well The Italian Job (1969) brought that concept to the silver screen for the first time with Michael Caine, Noël Coward, and comedy legend Benny Hill. Director F. Gary Gray would revisit this idea in the 2003 remake with an all-star cast in Donald Sutherland, Mark Wahlberg, Edward Norton, Charlize Theron, Jason Statham, Seth Green and Mos Def. Can three small Mini Coopers (or Austin Minis) haul three tons of gold in these action, comedies? The Invaders once again descend to earth to dissect the phenomenon you humans call the cinematic remake.
