Gallery: So good they made it TWICE! The movies so good you FORGOT they were remakes (BANG Showbiz)
Twice as nice!
Remakes have become a bit of a tradition in Hollywood over the last 50 years or so. Whether it is felt that it is time for an update or simply that they’re out of fresh ideas, a lot of remakes just don’t live up to their predecessors. But what about the ones that do? And then some! Take a look through to discover ten movies that were so good you forgot were actually remakes.
It might surprise you to learn that the 2001 box office hit ‘Ocean’s Eleven’ -which starred George Clooney, Brad Pitt, Matt Damon, Don Cheadle, Andy García, Bernie Mac and Julia Roberts - was actually a remake of a 1960 film. The first movie in the ‘Oceans’ franchise told the story of a $160 million heist at a casino. But the original also featured an array of then-mega stars such as Frank Sinatra and Dean Martin.
The Parent Trap
The 1998 version of ‘The Parent Trap’ is remembered by 90s kids everywhere. The story of long-lost twins who discover each other at a summer camp has become a cult classic and made a star of Lindsay Lohan, who took on the roles of both Hallie and Annie with clever camera work. It also starred Dennis Quaid and the late Natasha Richardson in what was an update of a 1961 movie. The original ‘Parent Trap’ starred British actress Hayley Mills as Sharon and Susan in what was her second movie for Disney, following on from the 1960 hit ‘Pollyanna'.
‘True Grit’ was a 2010 Western film with John Bridges in the lead role and was the big break for 14-year-old Hailee Steinfeld. Steinfeld played the role of Mattie Ross who enlists the help of Deputy US Marshal Rooster Cogburn to seek revenge and justice for the murder of her father. The film was a massive success, even earning the teenage Steinfeld an Oscar nomination, but it was in fact a remake of a 1968 film starring cowboy legend John Wayne.
A Star is Born
‘A Star is Born’ had a long screen history before pop superstar Lady Gaga wowed audiences by starring alongside Bradley Cooper in the 2019 Oscar-winning drama. But the musical has actually been adapted a number of times. The first was in 1937 before being remade for the first time as a comeback vehicle for ‘Wizard of Oz’ actress Judy Garland in 1954. While that movie was a moderate success, Judy lost out the Oscar for Best Actress to Grace Kelly in a shock twist of fate. A more famous remake followed in 1973 starring Barbra Streisand.
The Woman In Black
‘The Woman in Black’ has been wowing theatrical audiences for years since its debut as a stage play. The creepy retelling of a ghost experience was originally a book written by Susan Hill and was adapted into a blockbuster starring ‘Harry Potter’ actor Daniel Radcliffe back in 2012. The eerie blockbuster grossed a devilish $129million worldwide. But what you may not know is the Daniel Radcliffe film was a remake of a 1989 film, which coincidentally starred Adrian Rawlins, who went on to play Harry Potter’s father – in the role that Radcliffe would go on to play.
Although not strictly a remake, it is sometimes forgotten that the now famous musical ‘Hairspray’ has had a journey from screen, to stage and then back to screen again. The story of the pleasantly plump Tracy Turnblad who becomes a dancer on 1960s television and goes on to fight racism originally came to light in a 1988 film by cult writer and director John Waters and starred future talk show host Ricki Lake and drag queen Divine. Years later, it would go on to become a successful Broadway musical and then in 2007 returned to the screen as a movie musical starring Nikki Blonsky and ‘Grease’ actor John Travolta.
Cheaper by the Dozen
‘Cheaper by the Dozen’ was the quirky comedy released in 2003 starring Steve Martin and Bonnie Hunt as Tom and Kate Baker – a struggling but ambitious couple who have 12 kids. The ensemble cast of children was made up with famous faces such as ‘Lizzie McGuire’ actress Hilary Duff and accomplished actress Piper Perabo, amongst others. Ashton Kutcher also starred as the film’s main antagonist. It opened on Christmas Day at the box office, claiming the #2 spot just behind ‘Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King’ and raked in almost five times its $40m budget. But the family comedy was in fact a modernisation of the 1950 black-and-white film which in turn was based on the memoirs of the Gilbreth family.
War of the Worlds
‘War of the Worlds’ was a 2005 hit sci-fi film starring Tom Cruise and child actress Dakota Fanning – who would later go on to success for her roles in the ‘Twilight Saga', 'Ocean's 8' and 'Once Upon a Time in Hollywood'. But the story was originally a 19th century book by H. G. Wells. It was memorably turned into a 1938 radio programme directed by and starring Orson Welles which caused public panic among British listeners who did not know the Martian invasion was fictional.
Before this hit cinemas, David will be back on screen the Netflix hit series ‘Stranger Things’ - where he plays chief of police Jim Hopper in the fictional town of Hawkins, Indiana - for the fourth season.
'Cape Fear' at 30: Why Martin Scorsese Needed Convincing to Direct Iconic Thriller (Flashback)
Scorsese explained to ET in 1991 how Robert De Niro and Steven Spielberg convinced him to direct the psychological thriller.When speaking with ET leading up to the movie's premiere, the actor and director shared how their tale of insidious vengeance eventually came to fruition. As they explained, Scorsese only began entertaining the prospect after having dinner with producer Steven Spielberg and De Niro. And it all rested on a crucial interaction between De Niro and eventual co-star Juliette Lewis.
The show also stars Winona Ryder, Finn Wolfhard, Noah Schnapp, Caleb McLaughlin and Gaten Matarazzo.
David has starred in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) blockbuster 'Black Widow' and previously revealed that he has held talks with the studio about reprising the role of Red Guardian in future projects.
He said: "There is some chatter around certain things. We were pretty focused on just this.
"They also have a lot of stuff in the pipe, that, it seems like in this particular phase, there's a lot of different... there's 'Eternals', there's different elements to this universe that I think they're branching out at this point. I knew I wasn't involved in that branch.
"The discussions didn't really give a sense of what was up next. It was more just really focused on this movie, and some speculation of possibilities."

One has underestimated the yearning that fashioned fashion and distinguishes from simple clothing. Because who sits in jogging pants on the sofa dreams of a festive cocktail dress for solemn occasions. No simple small black , but sparkling sequins and dancing springs.
