I love hearing Janes on tv and in trailers. Love it!

However, what asshole decided to remake that movie! PLEASE for the love of god can Hollywood come up with new ideas. Stop making bad remakes. What's next, St Elmos Fire reboot!

I agree, and then I see this, and think there's some b-movie promise here. Don't remember the original very well at all. I like the lead actors in this. And the Jane's song is perfect.

Seriously .. I never saw the original, but was it such a classic that it was in need of a remake? If it was great, leave it alone. Even if it was shit that could have been great, fuck off with reboots/remakes. I hope this thing flops just because (no pun) it's a remake.

To be honest, I was a bit scared of the original but it wasn't like great either. It's from 1990, so it's not like that fucking old or a classic. This one looks stupid, even if Diego Luna is in it.

As long as they don't touch any of John Hughes movies.

The song really shines in this trailer. Nicely done.

The original wasn't great by any means. But it was kind of creepy and pretty entertaining.

I thought the idea of the original was interesting. The pay off was rather cliché but as a whole the movie was a classic in my book.

The only thing worse than remaking an old favorite is when I find the trailer interesting and want to see it.

The original is imo, an "ok" movie but it has almost zero rewatchability. Probably the best thing about it is the cast. For whatever reason, I get some of the plot points confused with the marginally more interesting Jacob's Ladder which came out around the same time.

Flatliners always makes me think of that song.

Was a big hit here in Belgium when I started going out when I was like 16 years old. It probably hasn't aged very well, but this songs brings along a lot of puberescent memories to me
