Movie previews

I've seen a couple of movies in the theater lately (Hellboy II, Dark Knight), but it is the previews I want to talk about.

First, a couple of remakes.

Death Race 2000 spawns Death Race. This 1975 Roger Corman classic starring David Carridine and Sylvester Stallone is being redone with Jason Statham (of Transporter) fame as the star driver.
This actually looks pretty good.

On the other hand, Keenu Reeves has been tapped to play Michael Rennie's role in the SciFi classic The Day the Earth Stood Still. This looks pretty awful.
