the crazies 1 The Crazies Trailer

No longer merely a punk band made up exclusively of my ex-girlfriends, Breck Eisner has remade the 1973 George Romero film, The Crazies. The movie follows the inhabitants of a sleepy lil’ Iowa town who go crazy and die. Why? You’ll have to watch the film to find out (or at least the original).

The Crazies stars Timothy Olyphant (Hitman) Radha Mitchell (Silent Hill) and Danielle Panabaker (Friday the 13th). George Romero, the director of the 1973 original, also brought the world the much-celebrated horror classic, Night of the Living Dead and all its subsequent sequels.

The folks over at FilmDrunk have pointed us to the trailer of The Crazies remake. Take a looksie:

Breck Eisner (who must be very tired of always seeing parenthetical references to his father, former Disney CEO Michael Eisner), claims the dubious honor of having directed Sahara, a movie that lost between $78MM and $105MM, depending on who you ask. He’s also directed high-profile commercials for the likes of Budweiser, Sony and Rold Gold Pretzels, and picked up a couple “Best Ad” nods in Adweek for some anti-smoking PSAs he did for the California Department of Health Services. He’s also rumored to be helming the upcoming Flash Gordon remake.

So why remake what was generally considered one of the less awesome films by an influential director?  Whyyyyyy?????? (Sarcasm alert!)

The Crazies will stare us in the face with menacing, soulless eyes from movie screens everywhere February 26, 2010.

  1. the trailer looked pritty good and scary.Iv never seen the original, i started once but only got in 5 minutes. Timothy Olyphant looked good. by the way i love that song

  2. mad world song felt so forced into it not flowin with it

  3. Looks (for lack of a better word) CRAZY.

    Lol. I also liked how the birds eye view of the town is the one used for Smallville. :)

  4. Noooo! I had this idea for a story and I wrote a 25 page version of this trailer.

    This is the third time an idea I had was realized in movie or video game form.

    The video games were Crazy Taxi and Super Smash Bros.

  5. was liking the trailer up until they whiped out the Gary Juiles.
    i agree “imran” it felt very forced.

    but again OlyphanTastic fits in odly enuff.
    usually in sum movies he just dosent feel like a charecter just an actor.
    if that makes any sense.

    All IMO

  6. This trailer certainly piqued my interest.
    When I first read a description of this film, I was rather “meh” about it. It sounded like “one more try at making a zombie movie that isn’t a zombie movie”.
    Now, after seeing the trailer, well, it actually looks like it could be scary and fun.

    Personally, I’m a bit sick of the “comedy” horror trend.

  7. Man, am i sick of Mad World being used as a juxtaposition to chaos. Can we find a new song guys? Huh?

    That being said, while this looks intriguing, it also looks very typical. And is another zombie movie really what the world needs?

    this will be a rental.

    Oh, and Scott, i think a few of my ex’s rounded out the band. You and I were listening to the same “music”.

  8. not a zombie movie. peolpe just go cazy and gt really mad and want to kill everybody. Anyway peole say zombie movies are made to much but how many great ones are out there. i can only see 3. night of the living dead, dawn of the dead oiginal one of my fav movies, dawn of the dead remake nearly as good as original.Yes they need to stop making bad zombie movies but sart making good big budget ones

  9. For those of you who don’t know this was Romero’s “Birth of Zombies” scenario. I like how this one brings it into a more modern conext. Unfortunately, I can agree with everyone about “Mad World”. This song has been played to death(pun!). Perhaps A Perfect Circle’s version of “Imagine” would have been good. At least they didn’t run “Sweet Dreams” by Marylin Manson AGAIN!
    This does look good. I really like the cast and I can’t wait to see it.

  10. Having watched some of the actual filming in Cordele, Ga….the trailer clips look real promising. Can’t wait to see how the actors play out in the scenes. The make-up on several of the “crazie” guys was just amazing, not overdone, just scary as hell. As we were eating supper one night and laughing, I told a couple of them across from me, “It’s gotta be easier to eat across from me than it is for me across from you!” One was the guy in the trailer who jumps up from the jail floor. All in all, a great bunch of folks to watch work, lotta fun, and I hope the movie does well for all!

  11. Let’s face it this movie will be no#1 it’s first weekend, it look’s so freak’in good.(i suck)

  12. it does look great even for a remake. BTW- why so down on yourself jaime
