    I just watched the trailer and now I'm even more skeptical than I was before. What made the original so great is that it wasn't just another 50's saucer men movie. There were no invading armies, vapor rays or major attacks. It was just one alien and his robot, coming to Earth to warn us to stop destroying our planet. Of course, in Hollywood's race to remake any and every movie, they've now "improved" upon the original by turning it into that movie. We now have invading alien armies and mass destruction, complete with all the whiz-bang CGI that audiences crave from their hollow sci-fi spectacles. The casting of Keanu Reeves always worried me. This trailer worries me more.

    I love the original, this looks like a giant insult to it. Turning a sci-fi masterpiece into a blockbuster explosionfest.

    They are going to have walkie-talkies instead of guns in it.

    so it sounds like they are going to talk each other to death via walkie talkie,already this seems like another flop as was tom crusies war of the worlds.can only hope the other remakes WOLFMAN and CREATURE FROM THE BLACK LAGOON are better.But then again.....:(
