Disney's The Black Hole remake

http://www.cinemaspy.com/Movie-News/...le-Remake/3994



Sitting down with MTV, Tron Legacy director Joseph Kosinski spoke about his upcoming reimagining of Disney's 1979 film The Black Hole. You may recall that back in January, Kosinski enthused about the project, saying, "We've got a really strong idea and concept for the film. The title alone has a tremendous amount of potential."

Kosinski remains enthused, and hopes to retain as many of the elements from the original film as possible, though cautions that this is a reimagination, and not a sequel. More on that in a moment.

In the original film, the exploration vessel U.S.S. Palomino is returning to Earth after an 18-month search for extra-terrestrial life, when it encounters a ship long thought lost, the U.S.S. Cygnus, hovering near a black hole. The ship is controlled by Dr. Hans Reinhardt (played by Maximilian Schell) and his hulking red robot, Maximillian. But the initial wonderment the Palomino crew experience for the Cygnus and the ship's ability to counteract the irresistible gravitational pull of the awesome black hole, quickly turn to horror as they uncover Reinhardt's diabolical plan to convert his former crew into automatons and send them into the hole.
Maximillian Schell as Dr. Hans Reinhardt in a scene from 'The Black Hole' (1979).

About 'The Black Hole'

Disney's 1979 production of The Black Hole contained over 550 visual effects shots, including over 150 matte paintings. At the time of its release, the movie also featured the longest computer graphics sequence that had ever appeared in a film. At a cost of $20M, the movie itself ultimately proved to be an expensive embarrassment to the studio.

Fans of the original are doubtless curious about which elements from the original Kosinski intends to maintain. "It won't be a sequel like 'Tron,'" he explained. "This one will be a reimagining. For me, it would be taking ideas and iconic elements that struck me as timeless and cool and preserving them while weaving a new story around them that's a little more '2001.'"

"What sticks out most is the robot Maximilian," he added. "The blades and the vicious killing of Anthony Perkins. That freaked me out and that's definitely going to be an element that will be preserved. The design of the Cygnus ship is one of the most iconic spaceships ever put to film."

According to Kosinski, the advances in astrophysics over the past 20 years will be factored into the new story. "From a conceptual point of view, we know so much more about black holes now, the crazy things that go on as you approach them due to the intense gravitational pull and the effects on time and space. All that could provide us with some really cool film if we embrace it in a hard science way."

Are you excited about this remake, or would you prefer Disney left well enough alone and developed a new science fiction property instead? Let us know below.

"Let the original film R.I.P. and erase the goofy robots, bad acting and repetitively boring film score from ever returning to our collective data bases.

Start anew with understanding that quantum-mechanics can predict that approaching a massive 'black hole' would expose you to deadly atomic particles, sucked from millions of kilometers in all directions, instantly converting your mass into a Spam Sandwich.

Time itself would stop as you reached the event horizon, thus all information would be sucked into oblivion and not recoverable since all time is locked firmly; similar to the effect of Oprah Winfrey sitting on your head.

But as a place to dispose things like, Al Gore and non-biodegradable plastic containers, a 'black hole' would be an ideal location and I propose further examination of this hypothesis to be engaged immediately, with a new feature film in 3-D with a rocking music score."

I loved the original film.

I was also 12 when it came out.

Still, though. I loved the score, the two little trashcan robots (one voiced by Roddy McDowall IIRC and the other with a cowboy accent and all beaten-up), the scary Maximillian, and the (for the era) cutting-edge special effects.

But they need a remake of this like a fish needs a bicycle.

Even though the movie technically sucked, I always enjoyed it. I still remember when Crown Center had Vincent there. That was cool as hell!!!

I thought this movie was unbelieveably ****ing awful. The effects, the "story line", the acting and the plot (the Black Hole leads to hell? ).

I'm shocked that Disney is moving forward with this because it's just another disaster waiting to happen.

It was awful and unwatchable. Maximilian floating through the black hole was comical, as was the black hole itself.

The movie was absurdly horrible.

I unfortunately saw this movie when it came out.

The ending was absurd.

To each their own. When I was ten this movie was great. Now it is just a guilty pleasure even though I know how horrible it really was.

Sorry Bro, I knew it was horrible in 1979.



Seriously, it sucked ass. As bad as the Star Trek movie was that year (Star Trek: The Motion Picture), TBH was 100x worse.

Maybe 1,000 times worse. Simply laughable. Like Mystery Science Fiction 3000 laughable.
