INVASION OF THE BODY SNATCHERS remake– Watch the trailer here!

June 10, 2007

Check out the teaser trailer for THE INVASION, WB’s remake of the classic INVASION OF THE BODY SNATCHERS, starring Nicole Kidman.

Looks interesting… there was some behind the scenes drama here, with Director Oliver Hirschbiegel being supplanted by the Wachowski Brothers when the WB demanded ‘more action’ be thrown into the mix. That sounds like a mistake to me– Body Snatchers works best as a PSYCHOLOGICAL thriller to me. The whole point is that feeling of fear and dread when you see people you know turn COLD and EMOTIONLESS… action scenes bring in the kind of loud intensity you should want very little of in this film. Keep it CREEPY… the audience can figure out there’s danger involved, no need to pander.

Still, I’m keeping on open mind on this due to the talent level of all parties involved.
