The original version of this flick came out way back in 1951, which, in Hollywood's eyes, makes it way overdue for a remake. The plot has Keanu Reeves playing an alien messenger that has come to tell us earthlings that we're about to have our intestines handed to us by some unfriendly space-types. Unlike the original, it's sure to be a big-budget blockbuster, which will inevitably annoy some nerds to the point of a nervous breakdown. At least they have Jennifer Connolly to help ease their pain.
