They brought back a member from the trilogy into this...
Anyway...I'm liking at what I look at here. I'll probably see it given the chance.

No need for this. The original is perfect.

I'd agree on the original but...I'd give this one a chance just for the sake of wondering if it's actually a good flick. I like Coyle's presence and voice.

talking about about the original trilogy. I'd like to get a respected release of the trilogy on BD here in the states. Anyone know how the they fared up BD wise overseas?

Agreed.

I will see it, though.

I want to see the original trilogy, but I have never been able to find a legit release in the US. I'm curious about why Pusher 3 is on Netflix, but 1 and 2 aren't.

Do you have Amazon Prime? The entire trilogy is on their Instant Video Service.

I'd love to see a remake of this done in the style of Coupling.

The original is far from perfect. It's a good movie but come on.

The original may not be perfect, but I still think it's good enough to not need a remake.

The trailer doesn't do a ton for me, for some reason, but I'm sure I'll still see it. Plus, even though I'm doubting this will be a "huge" movie, it'd be nice if this movie could help get the original trilogy a blu-ray release.

Now available for rent on VOD ("Before theaters"), Amazon Instant Video, Vudu, and probably iTunes.

It's not as bad as it easily could have been, but it's a pale shadow of the original film. I didn't hate it or anything, but it lost the heart and soul of the original.

It's basically a shot for shot remake, though a few things are a little different.
