Not sure if this qualifies. The line between sequel and reboot is a bit unclear on this one. Though that's, of course, for od0_ital to decide, he makes the rules.
I'm okay with it...while Bryan Singer tried to do a sequel AND a reboot in the same movie, failin' at both, that Lois Lane's son wasn't a part of her character for the third film from the original series shows that this was meant to be a fresh take on the character. That there was an entirely new cast works in its favor for this contest, as well.

Though I would be more likely to vote for Kevin Spacey's Lex Luthor than Brandon Routh's Superman...hell, I'd vote for Brandon Routh's Clark Kent before I voted for his Superman.
As much as I want your vote, I'll stick with Supes. BSG woulda been my second choice but it's been done.

Assuming Nosferatu as the original, here are the notable reboots...

They do not know what they are missing.
I would say "kids today are stupid," but actually I think most kids whenever are stupid to be fair.
I was talking to a younger friend of mine who's 21 (I'm 28) about the new Total Recall remake and asked him if he'd seen the original. "Nah, I don't really like old films."
Movies from 1990 are considered "old films"

So he was born in 1991. I was born in 1984, but never had a problem as a kid watching films from the early 80s, late 70s etc


Then again he's not the sharpest tool in the box, but still.

Not that particular one, but she does make exceptions for "kids movies" and Stephen King adaptions.

Some nice entries, so far...still plenty of time for more folks to enter, the poll won't go up 'til some time Friday-ish.

A few suggestions, off the top of my head, would be Buffy Summers (the tv series rebooted from the movie, changin' the character's history a bit), Ang Lee's HULK, Edward Norton's Hulk, the new Spider-Man movie, Michael Myers, Freddy Kreuger & Jason Voorhees have all been rebooted the last few years, too.

^ Recasting Freddy Krueger is more blasphemic than all the others combined.

Wasn't the point of the Bond-Reboot to get away from fantastic elements?

I think you're still okay with Bond. He's still as fantasical as Nolan Batman

Re: SciFi/Fantasy Avatar Contest - Ctrl-Alt-Del

I think the Batman reboot works better for this contest than the Bond reboot.

Plus, Bond still uses Judi Dench as M, same as the Pierce Brosnan movies did.

Pulled a late shift last night, went into work early today, too tired to deal with a poll, so it'll go up some time tomorrow, since I have the day off.
