First Proper Friday the 13th Remake Theatrical Trailer

Apparently the Friday the 13th teaser trailer that we posted a few days ago was just a repackaging of some Comic Con footage that had already been floating around for a while now. The real theatrical trailer for the remake arrived online shortly afterward and was playing in front of Saw V this weekend. It adds a bit more atmosphere and a voiceover from Jason’s mom (who obviously won’t be the main villain this time around), which gives the images a bit more context. I still can’t say I’m all that impressed with what I’m seeing, but there’s a part of me that is excited nonetheless. I do, however, feel like it’s false advertising to say, “From the Director of The Texas Chainsaw Massacre”! Friday the 13th hits theatres on Friday, February 13th, 2009. Check out the theatrical trailer below and see what you think.



  • Jason Vorhees rocks! For all the other 10 movies in the collection not one was bad. However, some were better than others. Look at Jason X….that seems like it should be have been crap, but turned out better than I thought it would.

  • Wes

    Running Jason kicks ass!!!

  • Ian

    So Valentine’s Day is on a Saturday? Awesome!

  • Matt

    Sooooo is this technically a remake? If so what film?
    Cause as you mentioned, and we all know, Jason wasn’t the killer in the original Friday the 13th. Also, he didn’t wear a hockey mask in the 2nd film.

    If anything, it’s a remake of the third film. I guess.

  • Technically it’s a reboot of the franchise, rather than a remake of any specific film.

  • Ian

    Okay, Bay can have a few of these other ones. But I want Critters and I’m sure Jay remake do Doll Man.

  • I’ve only watched one Jason film all the way through, and it was Jason X. I thought the script was witty. I loved it.

    For all you Treknobabblers out there who weren’t aware, Kira from DS9 is playing Jason’s mom in this new film.

    “From the director of the remake of The Texas Chainsaw Massacre” Could you imagine seeing that across the screen along with Don Lafontaine reciting it from another dimension…that would really bake my cake.

  • Tobe Hooper is directing Friday the 13th? That rules!

    i dont think it will be a remake to me i honestly dont think you could beat the original version of any friday 13th film it could be though and if it is i hope it is a remake of jason goes to hell i thought that movie could use improvment
