    I haven't seen the original and I hope this isn't just an unneccessary version that is nearly a shot-for-shot remake. I viewed the trailer a couple of days ago and i'm definately intrigued. Robin Williams had me worried on paper but I think he has the potential to pull off this role.

    Man the original is one of my favorite movies of the 90s and its depressing to see it remade.. but, Memento was my favorite movie of 2001 so it's in good hands.. but then again, wish he would do something original.

    Oh well.

    I just downloaded this trailer and looks interesting. I'm most excited that this movie teams four really good people: Al Pacino, Christopher Nolan, Hillary Swank and Robin Williams.

    I wasn't aware that this is a remake but with said people involved, I have high hopes for it.

    The preview looked pretty strong - interesting music too.

    I also enjoyed the first movie but was bothered by what I perceived to be significant plot/premise holes.

    Let's hope for the best.

    I just watched the original Insomnia tonight amd enjoyed it greatly. I then went and watched the trailer on my computer and noticed that once again hollywood seems to be holding me by the hand and making everything clear and overly dramatic so I will get it and I will be moved by it. Personally I think the subtle original version was enough and it did not spell everything out for me, which I enjoy.

    By the way....Rich what plot holes are you talking about?

    I welcome Robin Williams in any role that doesn't involve Disney, dressing in drag, Chris Columbus or soaring manipulative musical montages. [​IMG]
    Williams as a hardcore psycho? Sounds intriguing!
