Ridley Scott producing, same writer, one of the best directors this decade, one of the best DPs alive today.
It might be good. But I'll never believe a sequel was necessary.

To what are you referring by 'DP'?

Notwithstanding the fact that this isn't a remake, it's no mystery why businesses like established brands. That's what a remake is - using a brand that is already established as profitable. It's easy to decry this when you're not the one ponying up millions (or tens of millions, or hundreds of millions) to finance a film.

Besides, without remakes we'd never have had any of the great vampire films post-Nosferatu. We'd never have had The Magnificent Seven, or Apocalypse Now. Even lesser gems, like 12 Monkeys or John Carpenter's The Thing. Or even The Wizard of Oz.

And obviously, the vast majority of films are not remade. Glance at this list of 100 great films from the 1970s. How many have been remade by now, four decades on? Very few.
