I love the casting of Mary Elizabeth Winstead,in the lead role and liked both her performance and the movie. But, for me it hard to but both of the same level as the two classics that preceded it.


The Thing from Another World 1951 | Movie Kenneth Tobey

The Thing 1982 | Movie Kurt Russell

The Thing 2011 | Movie Mary Elizabeth Winstead

I think that is going to be case with a lot of these as they are all remakes of well-remembered original films. So, I guess it is more a question of which one you like best or which one comes close to the original.

urbanemovies It seems that a lot of heart was put into making of 2011 movie and most of the problems with it are thanks to executive meddling. Which is a shame, considering how much work crew put in practical effects and replication of the original movie. Cast were no slouches, as well.

Overboard. I didn't think they could improve on that iconic film . But they did.

I liked the remake too, characters were very likeable and premise was well-utilized for comic relief.

  The Hustle (2019) PG-13 | 94 min | Comedy | May 10th release

Anne Hathaway and Rebel Wilson star as female scam artists, one low rent and the other high class, who team up to take down the dirty rotten men who have wronged them.

The Sitter 2011 | Movie
vs.

Adventures in Babysitting 1987 | Movie

Do these two movie seem almost exactly the same to anyone else with Jonah Hill reprising the Elisabeth Shue role from the first film. No official writing credit was given to David Simkins the original screenwriter in the second film. Oddly, he didn't get one in the Adventures in Babysitting (2016 TV Movie) Disney remake, either.

GENDER SWAP SUGGESTIONS??? Can anybody recall any other remake or sequel movies where the main cast or lead is recast with member of the opposite sex.

Hm... I might remember some more but you seem to have listed all of the major ones... For now I have two from the realm of 90's b-movies. 

FYC: 
Cyborg 2: Glass Shadow (1993)
Nemesis 2: Nebula (1995)

It is kinda shocking, I thought there would be a lot more. It seems to happen a bit more in original movies, where the role is rewritten upfront for the opposite sex or just left it as is and casting some one of the opposite gender. Thanks, for the suggestions.

urbanemovies Cyborg movies are an odd case, since a few snippets of the first movie show up in the second as a hallucination. Nemesis movies are arguablly even weirder since they all were directed by Albert Pyun (who started both franchises) and yet are even more unrelated. To top it off, a crossover which is in development hell since mid-2000's confirms that all of those are in a shared universe.

Anything but Ghostbusters, the film was plain awful!
Isn't Booksmart an unofficial remake of Superbad?

ElM. unofficial remakes might bring quite a few options to the table. Bollywood ones are often mixing two or three unrelated movies into one (a good example: Commando (1988) is a mixture of American Ninja (1985) and Romanicing the Stone (1984) plus some random scenes from other movies)...

ElM.  I can see some basic similarities between Booksmart and Superbad? But, according to the development notes on the Booksmart Wikipedia stub, it is an original script and includes a rewrite to make one of the main characters, LBGTQ. I don't think the two are close enough to call an unofficial remake, loosely based or even a rip-off. Unlike,The Sitter 2011 and  Adventures in Babysitting 1987, which both supposedly original scripts, there are two many parallels to not at least call it a Gender Swap rip-off, IMHO.
