I admit I'm not really big on the movie (at least, not as into it as my husband is). But it just seems wrong without Patrick Swayze. 

What do you think? Are you looking forward to it?

Well, the original was probably the first movie I remember seeing Patrick Swayze in... and I loved the movie just because he was so intense in his role. Yeah, I had one mad crush on him... *sigh*

I wasn't able to see the trailer you shared, but I found one here:

As much as it pains me to say it, I do think I'd like to see the new version... I don't think I'll prefer one over the other, though. Some stories are just worth repeating and I guess it kind of touches that patriotic streak in me to see everyday people united and pulling together against crazy, insane odds.

I'm not really into that kind of movie but I know my sons just love it. They don't really know or care about Patrick Swayze like some of us.

I have a lot of trouble watching anything that has "replacement" stars.
