The Crow (2024 Remake) – Trailer Talk.

Another year brings yet another remake of a classic film, with the latest one being ‘The Crow’.

‘The Crow’ is a remake of the 1994 classic, this time starring Bill Skarsgard (IT, Barbarian) as the titular character who is resurrected and vows revenge on those who killed his soulmate and tried to kill him.

While the film does look fun, and has a fantastic lead with Bill Skarsgard, issues are already showing just from the trailer. The action scenes look enjoyable, but the remake overall feels like a fast-paced popcorn flick. In comparison, the 1994 film was more of a beautiful yet emotional tragedy that carried a dark gothic, almost fairytale atmosphere. And, while it does make sense to change certain aspects when it comes to remaking a film, the vast change in tone feels jarring. 

Furthermore, the trailer falls under the same mistake that most trailers have: it showed too much. Whether the film has more surprises in store that weren’t shown off is uncertain. But it doesn’t feel like it, judging from the amount of exposition and plot viewers were given in its 3-minute runtime.

In the future, the film industry should only focus on remaking films that warrant it: either to give it a new lease of life after a box office failure, or to improve the poor quality that its source material might have had. ‘The Crow’ remake falls under neither of those rules. If this had been given a different title, the film would be more appealing. But, by attaching itself to the beloved IP, its already soured fans of the original and seems overall pointless.
