"The Invasion" (2007) ist ein weiteres Remake des Grusel-Klassikers "Die Dämonischen" (US-Titel: "Invasion of the Body Snatchers") von Don Siegel (1956) - nach Philip Kaufman's "Die Körperfreser kommen" (1979) und Abel Ferrara's "Body Snatchers" (1993)...

Eine Psychiaterin, gespielt von Nicole Kidman, ist einer mysteriösen Epidemie auf der Spur, die sich unter ihren Mitmenschen ausbreitet und deren Psyche verändert...

Die neue "Invasion" aka "The Visiting" startete - nach einer Terminverschiebung - am 18. Oktober 2007 in den deutschen Kinos... Anfangs führte Oliver Hirschbiegel (u.a. "Der Untergang") Regie... Warner Bros. war aber mit seiner Fassung unzufrieden und stellte die Wachowski Brothers (u.a. "Matrix") ein, um den Film komplett umzukrempeln...

[21.08.2007] Bei AICN gibt es eine Kritik von Moriarty...
[...] I don’t think that reshoots are the reason the film doesn’t work. I don’t think this is a case of a brilliant movie getting ruined by studio interference. The reshoots are just the particular way this one went south.
Step one of the mistake was remaking INVASION OF THE BODY SNATCHERS again. [...]

[20.08.2007] Bei CHUD gibt es eine weitere vernichtende Kritik (1/10)...
What divides a disaster from a fiasco, artistically speaking? What is the line between a failure and a complete pants shitting? Whatever separates just plain fucking a movie up from inflicting pain on audiences, The Invasion lands firmly on the worst side of it. A terrible movie by any reasonable standards, The Invasion is a wretched mess from start to finish, and it taints the reputations of every single person who not only appears in it, but also goes to see it. [...]

[18.08.2007] Bei AICN gibt es eine Kritik von Capone...
[...] Centuries from now, anthropologists may study this wreck of a production to show the rest of the how, even generations as advanced as this one, we still managed to give birth to monsters. There are always so many contenders for worst film in any given year, but 2007 may mark the first year in recent history to have a sure-fire winner.

[16.08.2007] Bei AICN gibt es eine Kritik von Vern...
[...] if you were expecting a hilarious disaster of Nic Cage proportions, no luck. If you're hoping for topnotch intelligent sci-fi, well, its not that either. But it's fairly unsettling, it's hard to hate this cast and like I said, she tosses a kid in one part. You could do worse. [...]

[...] The bad press, and info about just what scenes were being re-shot, or added, and why, informed my opinion about the film as I watched it, and it really shouldn’t have.
Because the flick is pretty good.
We all know by now that The Invasion is a remake (or re-imagining, or re-thinking, or reboot, or whatever the hell you want to call it) of Invasion of the Body Snatchers, set in the present-day United States. It is a cerebral, effective thriller that provides plenty of opportunities for your date to bruise your forearm (there’s my nod to Ebert) as Nicole Kidman spends the film trying to outsmart a very intelligent, and increasingly populous enemy.
They’re spores, people! At least that’s what they start out as, when a U.S. space shuttle re-enters the atmosphere [...]

[...] I have spent the last few days researching this story on The Invasion and if you’re a fan of The Wachowski Brothers this might make your day. The last time you may have heard of this film was when Nicole Kidman was involved with a stunt gone wrong. What you may not have known was that took place during the reshoots for the film.
Apparently, Warner Bros. saw an early rough cut of The Invasion and realized it needed a little work. The director, Oliver Hirschbiegel, was "unavailable" to work on the planned reshoots, so Warner Bros. and Joel Silver brought in a pair of writer/directors that they knew they could rely upon, The Wachowski Brothers. It was reported that they came in to shoot a new ending. But I can report that they rewrote over 2/3 of the film, and brought in their trusted colleague, James Mcteigue (V For Vendetta), to direct the material while they were busy prepping their own film.
Joel Silver and Warner Bros. knew that they were capable of creating a more commercially accessible and large scale film than had previously been put together. Apparently, the earlier cut may have been a little artsy, talky, and not exactly a summer tentpole. [...]

Joel Silver, producer of the upcoming Nicole Kidman SF thriller The Invasion, told SCI FI Wire that there won't be any crew changes on the movie, despite rumors that the Wachowski brothers were being brought in to finish it and despite a highly publicized on-set accident. Kidman was taken to a hospital after the vehicle rig in which she was sitting crashed early Jan. 25 during shooting in downtown Los Angeles. She was not seriously injured.
"She's OK," Silver said in an interview at San Francisco's WonderCon over the weekend while promoting his next film, The Reaping. "I mean, ... look, we have to make these movies exciting, thrilling. The car was on a vehicle that kind of slammed into a light pole, and Nicole was kind of shook up a little bit, but she's a trouper. She kept going. But it looks great, and it's going to be a great film.", meanwhile, reported that Silver's Matrix directors Andy and Larry Wachowski were being brought in to write a new ending for the film. The report, which cited an anonymous source, did not mention anything about the Wachowskis stepping in to helm the film, and Silver stood behind the current director, German filmmaker Oliver Hirschbiegel. Asked if there would be any crew changes, Silver said: "No, no, no. ... Oliver Hirschbiegel directed the movie and did a great job. And we're kind of working our way through it, and it should come out this summer."

Nicole Kidman was taken to a hospital after the Jaguar she was driving crashed early Thursday during downtown shooting of Warner Bros. sci-fi thriller The Invasion, says The Associated Press.
Kidman, 39, was examined at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center and then released a short time later. Paramedics were called to examine Kidman for injuries before she was taken to the hospital, police said.
"Nicole Kidman was in the vehicle at the time of the accident and was taken to the hospital for evaluation. She was released shortly thereafter," the studio said.
The Jaguar was being towed by a camera rig that skidded while taking a corner and caused Kidman's car to hit a pole on West Sixth Street, police said. The actress was wearing a seat belt.
"The stunt driver apparently went off course and hit a light post at about 1 a.m.," police Officer Karen Smith said.
Eight people, including Kidman, stuntmen and cameramen, were taken to hospitals for examination and were released, Smith said. Warner Bros. said two crew members had minor injuries.
The studio also said production continued after the crash and Kidman was expected back on the set Thursday.
The Invasion, directed by Oliver Hirschbiegel, co-stars Daniel Craig (Casino Royale). [...]

Unverändert bis auf den Schluss - im Original gibt es die Rahmenhandlung mit positivem Ausgang - und Verlegung von der Kleinstadt nach San Francisco. Die grösste Schwierigkeit des von Donald Sutherland verkörperten Inspektors besteht im Erkennen der Kapsel-Wesen, da sie sich kaum von den entfremdeten Stadtmenschen unterscheiden. Herausragend die lyrische Anfangssequenz der Reise der Sporen auf die Erde...
