Abstract or description

This article explores remaking – commonly understood as an inferior commercial Hollywood practice – as a form of (re)creation. The article examines Steven Spielberg’s two remakes, Always (1989) and War of the Worlds (2005), and their contribution to his authorial profile. Exploring remaking as authorial creative practice, then, the article analyzes implications and effects of reappropriation and reinterpretation on cultural production and discourse.
