Everything old is new again, and that's especially true in Hollywood, where film studios are always looking for a sure thing.
They're banking on yesterday's blockbusters to be a hit with new audiences, but as we all know remakes of great movies don't always live up to the original.
Here are 12 classic movies that are getting remade in 2018:
1. Tomb Raider
Angelina Jolie found box office success when she embodied the famous video game explorer in a pair of movies. The Tomb Raider games are still going strong after more than 20 years, so there's definitely an audience for this movie.
The only question is whether or not Jason Bourne star Alicia Vikander can fill Jolie's shoes. We'll find out this summer.
2. The Crow
While the status of this remake has been up in the air for some time, the original comic's creator, James O'Barr, recently revealed that filming is starting soon. What's not clear is whether Game of Thrones star Jason Momoa is still attached to the project.
The actor had been tapped to play Eric Draven, the rock musician brought back to life to seek revenge on his murderers. Stay tuned for more casting news, but we're glad this underrated movie is getting another chance.
3. Peter Pan
We're starting to worry about this Disney movie. It was one of the many live action remakes of their animated hits the movie giant teased, but lately we haven't heard much about the project.
When Disney last updated us a year ago, they said Pete's Dragon director David Lowery was in charge of the project. But since then another Pan remake (Pan, starring Hugh Jackman) was a flop, so we won't hold our breath.
4. Death Wish
Die hard action fans are looking forward to this remake, which casts Bruce Willis in Charles Bronson's role. He plays a father looking to avenge the deaths of his wife and daughter.
With Hostel director Eli Roth behind the camera, we're guessing things will get pretty violent.
5. A Star is Born
What do you get when you remake the remake of a remake? Well, Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga would probably settle for an Oscar nomination. The last time we saw this tried and true story about a romance between two musicians, Kris Kristofferson and Barbra Steisand were in the leading roles.
Cooper, who's also directing this movie, is hoping lightning will strike a fourth time.
Here's a twist: the original "mean girls" movie is getting turned into a TV show with a modern setting. One of the original Heathers, Shannen Doherty, will even be making a guest appearance on the new show, so we'll wait until it premieres in March to cast judgement on it.
But fans of the original movie already have a lot of strong feelings about the show's trailer.
Warning: this trailer's a little not-safe-for-work.
