Gizmodo Movie Night: 15 Remakes And Reboots Streaming Right Now

It's almost the weekend, and that means you should book in another Gizmodo movie night. You don't always get it right the first time -- so this week, we're bringing you 15 examples where Hollywood had another crack at it -- for better or worse!

We’ve re-jigged our existing Netflix Movie Night series, and brought in Australia’s other popular subscription video on demand services — Presto and Stan — to give you a broader selection of movies and TV shows to enjoy. On all three services, you can watch from your tablet or smartphone, on your PC or laptop, through your Smart TV, or through a media streaming dongle like the Google Chromecast, although specifics can vary.

Presto costs $10 to $15 a month depending which package you choose. Stan is a flat $10 per month, and Netflix can cost from $9 to $15 per month.

    Anybody else using a smartDNS service to access US and other Netflix regions currently having problems? I use Getflix and that's not been working for me since last night. Apparently Netflix have implemented a change to their geoblocking... DNS4Me are reporting similar issue on their Facebook page.

    Looks like it might be back to the torrents for me if Getflix etc can't find a way around this soon...

      Unfortunately netflix are winning this war. I will be canceling my sub and like you say back to the old lawless days. It would be interesting to know how many people will do the same?

        Same here. I've been using Netflix for about 2 years and loved. Not touched a torrent in all that time. But AU Netflix is a joke compared to US. If AU is all I can get then I'll be ditching Netflix and Stan (currently have both) and going back to the old way of torrenting everything.

          +1 for piracy!
          Gizmodo can we please have an article on the impact that this blocking by netflix has had on Piracy use and netflix cancellations

    Are Mad Max: Fury Road and Rocky Balboa actually reboots or remakes though? I haven't seen either but was under the impression that they were more of a next installment in the series kind of thing. Not criticising, genuinely interested.

    Can't speak for Rocky, but Mad Max was most assuredly a reboot of the franchise. Completely different take on Max as a character.
