    With the success of the recent Dawn of the Dead remake, I started to wonder: can anyone name movies that remade sequels? Hopefully, or this thread will go nowhere! [​IMG]

    Anyway, I'm sure others exist, so if they do, let's hear them!

    "Father's Little Dividend" (1951) = "Father of the Bride Part 2" (1995)

    Paul Schrader's "Exorcist: The Beginning" (2003) = Renny Harlin's "Exorcist: The Beginning" (2004) [​IMG]

    Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome pretty much rehashes most of The Road Warrior. Does that count [​IMG]

    I knew these kinds of flicks would pop up here! The sequels that basically retell the same story as the first flick - no, they don't count! [​IMG]

    James Bond's Thunderball was remade as Never Say Never Again.

    Return of the Fly (1959) was remade as The Fly II (1989).
