20th Century Fox has made some changes to its summer schedule, moving its Poltergeist remake up by two months while also delaying the Paul Feig/Melissa McCarthy comedy Spy and the young-adult adaptation Paper Towns. Poltergeist will now arrive on May 22 while Spy has moved from that date to a June 5 slot. Paper Towns, which is based on The Fault in Our Stars author John Green’s book of the same name, moves to July 24. That means Poltergeist, which stars Sam Rockwell and Jared Harris, will face off against Brad Bird and Damon Lindelof's George Clooney-starring Tomorrowland.

It’s here! The full trailer for the Poltergeist remake, and it sure does look almost like a note for note rehash of the original 1982 horror blockbuster. It also doesn’t look nearly as bad or, perhaps more importantly, as toned down and family friendly as we all expected.

One of the more curious horror releases arriving this year is the remake of ‘Poltergeist,’ starring Sam Rockwell, Rosemarie DeWitt, and Jared Harris. Remake or no, that is one enticing cast of talented people. The remake is based on the 1982 horror classic directed by Tobe Hooper and produced by Steven Spielberg, and up until now, we haven’t known a whole lot about it—aside from the fact that it will be presented in 3D (insert eye roll). A new interview with Rockwell provides some new details about the project, and doesn’t make it sound all that scary. Continue reading…
