This trailer for a reimagined Fresh Prince of Bel Air looks f***en awesome
It’s been said a metric s**tload of times, but mainstream Hollywood seems almost devoid ideas with the way it’s remaking, rebooting and reimagining classics and capitalising on our nostalgic love for the old s**t. What’s probably said a little less is that some of these reboots are f**ken gold. And, to be completely fair, even if they’re not your exact cuppa, there’s a lot to be said for introducing new fans to some of that s**t. And if they can put a new twist on things, that’s all good, right? With that in mind, check out this awesome trailer…
Yeah, f**ken oath it’s a remake of the Fresh Prince of Bel Air. And why not? If they can take s**t like Archie and Jughead and turn it into a kickass new experience for the youth of today, then imagine how good they can make this. Playing the devil’s advocate for a second, old Archie sucked balls. Fresh Prince most certainly did not. Taking some quality and reimagining it has to be a win-win!
Anyway, first thing that comes to mind watching this is that it’s a f**ken quality video. They’re paying homage to the original in a totally bloody bonza way, and they’re making it appeal to the new generation. Also, correct me if I’m wrong, but it even seems a bit edgy from the opening cut.
Moving on, you’ve got some external conflict between Carlton and the Fresh Prince. That’s got to lead to some great viewing. And you know it’s only a matter of time before Carlton cuts up a rug. From there, you’ve got what looks like some awesome basketball scenes, some romance, some great shots.
There’s no way this wouldn’t be huge. It’s no wonder people on the internet are already demanding it be made into a real movie.
Final thought: In all honesty, remaking the good stuff can result in a mixed bag. Done for purely cynical reasons it can turn out a bit soulless. Done for the right reasons and made with a careful touch, it’s hard to go wrong. What do you blokes and blokettes reckon? Let us know in the comments.
