Good news: the Poltergeist remake probably won't be rated R, it's definitely going do be in 3D and it's being retold from the perspective of the kid. So actually, no, that's bad news. Bad news all around.
In an interview with Collider, Sam Rockwell (who is easily the greatest actor of our generation, please do not argue with me about this) spilled the beans on the Poltergeist remake, which we were NOT OK with, but got on board with when Rockwell was cast. Turns out the movie is in 3D. Oh, and:
"The 10-year-old boy is really the protagonist this time. JoBeth Williams was the protagonist for the most part in the first one and now the kid, it's really through his point-of-view. So it's more of a kids' movie so I don't know if it's gonna be like rated-R scary."
Pack it in, people. The weekend just started now.
