Plan 9 from Outer Space & Plan 9 remake

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ has posted about Plan 9, the proposed Plan 9 from Outer Space remake.

This film was supposed to be released this year, to coincide with the 50th anniversary of the original. But monetary issues, I believe, have kept that from happening.

Now set to start filming in April of 2010, the company behind the remake wanted to do something to mark the anniversary this year. So, last night they released what they are calling a 'teaser trailer':

Wow. Honestly... viewing what is in this trailer, I can't say I am excited to see this. Hopefully things will improve when they actually start filming the movie. Damn.


Darkstone Entertainment, the company in charge of the remake, has Vimeo links up. One of the videos is the original "Plan 9 from Outer Space", and you can watch the whole Ed Wood extravaganza below!

As a side note, RiffTrax is going to have an encore presentation of their in-theaters riff on "Plan 9 from Outer Space" on October 8th.

If you want a good laugh, GO SEE IT!!! We loved it!

And just to be totally geeky:

I set this Plan 9 post to publish at 9:09 AM. On 9/9/09.

Told ya it was geeky.



  1. I remember seeing the original Plan 9 a few years after it came out. One is tempted to say "they don't make 'em like that any more" but it seems that they do.

  2. lol. happy 9/9/9 at 11:33...funny.

    yeah they may have wanted to keep that one in the box a little while longer, even if it was the anniversary. they have time though so we will see.

  3. Oh boy is that ever sweet. I enjoyed a whole morning's worth of the classic that is Plan Nine. I would say YES on a remake but you would have to not only replicate the sheer goofiness of the original but also the love that went into it.

  4. this is the definition of pointlessness.

    somethings should just not be remade. Plan 9 is one of them.

    it is the perfect bad movie and a remake seems lazy and unnecessary. i can not wait for the day where ever single movie that has ever been made has been remade and then people can start making some new movies already. sheeesh.

    ps- Wings yer piece in Freddy from Space was great!!

  5. 9:09 am ~ ha ha, I like that!

    By the way, you've been linked with the other 09/09/09 related posts I stumbled upon in my trek around blog world today. Hope you don't mind. :-)

  6. I just realized how much of a maniac genius you are my brother. Plan 9 on 9/09/09? Bloody Brilliant.
