'Poltergeist' Remake Isn't Just Another Ghost Story in First TV Spot

Poltergeist

Since 20th Century Fox just bumped up the release of their horror remake Poltergeist to a late May release, it's time for the onslaught of TV advertising to begin to get people interesting in this retread of a horror classic. Sam Rockwell and Rosemarie DeWitt star as the heads of the haunted family this time with Jared Harris (The Quiet Ones) being their paranormal guide. Here in the first TV spot, we get some fancy new effects shots, and an ominous voiceover touting that this isn't just another ghost story. And using a little kid to whisper the title at the end is a nice touch. Could this actually be a decent remake? Watch!

Here's the first TV spot for Gil Kenan's Poltergeist from 20th Century Fox:

You can still watch the first trailer for Poltergeist right here.

Poltergeist is directed by Gil Kenan (Monster House) and written by David Lindsay-Abaire (Rise of the Guardians, Oz: The Great and Powerful). A remake of the classic horror film of the same name, this update from producer Sam Raimi follows a family whose suburban home is invaded by angry spirits. When the terrifying apparitions escalate their attacks and take the youngest daughter, the family must come together to rescue her. Sam Rockwell, Jared Harris, Rosemarie DeWitt, Saxon Sharbino, Jane Adams and eight-year-old Kennedi Clements star in the film which 20th Century Fox and MGM will release on May 22nd.

Guys, we SERIOUSLY don't need a Poltergeist re-boot. Besides, I thought Family Guy did such an AWESOME Job, with it...
