The movie based on King’s The Dark Tower novel series did not do well. It did not do well at all. Also, it was pretty bad. But the TV series maybe, maybe has a chance at seeing the light of day. If it happens, though, it won’t be following up on the movie.
The first season of Twin Peaks is almost perfect.
The 13th Friday the 13th movie has been lurking in the shadows so long we’d almost given up on it. But it’s still a go—and in a recent interview, Platinum Dunes’ Brad Fuller and Andrew Form spilled a few vague/tantalizing details on the forthcoming reboot from director Breck Eisner. Here’s what we learned.
Circuit City died an ignominious death at the hands of online retail and poor management back in 2009. But this summer, much like Jurassic Park and Star Wars, it’s apparently time for a reboot.
Everything old is new again, and it seems like a reboot is announced near-daily out of Hollywood. Do you have a favorite property that deserves to come back from the dead?
Collider is reporting that a planned reboot of League of Extraordinary Gentlemen is in the works, and that this one will be “female-centric”.
The reboot factory is rolling out yet another old television favorite: Xena: The Warrior Princess. Unfortunately, we probably won’t be able to see Lucy Lawless reprise her role as the former warlord-turned-hero. “I really couldn’t live that life,” Lawless said during the Television Critics Association’s semi-annual…
Netflix is apparently super close to inking a deal to reboot Full House, everyone’s favorite family-oriented sitcom about a grieving widower, his children, and his fuckup adult permanent houseguests leeching off his benevolence and remarkable real estate in San Francisco. And you know what? Uncles Jesse and Joey…
Today's unconfirmed/tantalizing/"but whyyy?" Hollywood rumor for all the once and future teen witches out there: There may be a reboot of 1996's The Craft in the works.
Movie sequels can be boring. Fortunately, you all shared plenty of creative sequel ideas (A space-station musical western as scored by David Bowie? Yes please.) that we really do want to see. Here, as pitched by you, are some our favorite potential sequels — if only someone would make them.
Over the past few decades we've gotten used to the idea of movie, TV, and other media franchises undergoing total reboots, with the creators breaking continuity with the original series to create new stories using the same core concepts and characters. It's pretty much taken for granted that whenever a new team takes…
This drawing by Jeff Victor is appropriately titled "Rebooted." While you could see this as the specific problem with the upcoming film's designs, it works just as well as a general commentary on the "gritty," "dark," and "realistic" bent of most reboots.
Sometimes a character goes through so many reinventions and reimaginings, it feels as though they're just being chewed up by the machine. (See Hawkman.) But sometimes, the 20th version of a character is just... perfect. Which character actually benefited from endless redesigns and reboots?
This is the age of the reboot. It's been happening regularly for the last 15 years at least, spurred on, I think, by a few successes like BSG and the Brady Bunch movies. Despite the failure of almost all others, such as Knight Rider, The Bionic Woman, the UK The Avengers movie, the Dukes of Hazzard movie, and Total…

It's a battle between the original Star Trek and its movie re-boot to decide which vision of the future will triumph! Two Star Treks enter, one leaves.
Just admit it — there was that one time you watched a reboot and realized it was better than the original. What reboot was it that made you realize that not all reboots are awful blemishes on the face of pop culture?

You’d think remaking a movie might be easy. I mean, it’s technically been done before; you can easily see what worked and what didn’t, what mistakes to avoid, and ways you can improve upon the original. Right?
