"Gremlins" (1984)... Halte sie von Wasser fern - halte sie von Licht fern - aber das Wichtigste überhaupt: Egal, wie sehr sie betteln, in keinem Fall dürfen sie nach Mitternacht gefüttert werden - niemals! Drei mysteriöse Warnungen, bevor Billy Peltzer
sein neues kuscheliges Haustier Gizmo in die Arme schliessen kann. Doch er hätte besser auf die Warnungen gehört, denn aus dem possierlichen Weihnachtsgeschenk wird ein Alptraum für eine ganze Stadt. Ein kleines, drolliges Tier vermehrt sich in Sekundenschnelle und es entstehen grauenvolle und doch hochintelligente Monster...
Und das nicht nur einmal... "Gremlins 2" (1990) und evtl. "Gremlins 3"...
Steven Spielberg produzierte den "Puppen-Horror", Chris Columbus (Regisseur von "Harry Potter") schrieb das Drehbuch und Joe Dante führte Regie... Die Gremlins gehören wohl zu den bekanntesten Filmmonstern überhaupt - von "Alien" und "Predator" mal abgesehen... ;-)

[...] If a domain renewal is anything to go by, "Gremlins 3" could be creeping up on us.
Seems Warner Bros renewed Gremlins3.com last week, a domain they’ve owned since 2009.
Now that doesn’t mean the film is definitely happening, but it does suggest that for the past few years the water tower gang have been seriously considering putting Gizmo back on the front-line. And if I had to guess, I’d say the domain renewal reiterates their interest in doing a new "Gremlins" film. [...]
CS! sprach mit Chris Columbus, u.a. über "Gremlins 3D"...
[...] "I spoke to Steven Spielberg a couple days ago and said, 'You know, I've been reading on the internet about this 'Gremlins 3D' and no one's approached him either, so I don't know if that's really true," Columbus told us.
That doesn't mean he's completely ruling out doing some sort of sequel or update. "It would be fun to go back and revisit (them). Something like 'Gremlins,' which is a movie I really like, I think it's impossible to recreate in a CGI environment. I think it will inevitably lose some of its charm. Those are edgy Muppets in a sense and you don't want to lose that sense of anarchy that those gremlins had, because behind the scenes are 25 puppeteers making them to come to life." [...]
[...] I have very good information from a top source that tells me GREMLINS is coming back to the silver screens and it will be in stereoscopic 3D! It is in the early stages with still lots of hurdles to pass, but it is being developed. [...]
Bloody-Disgusting sprach mit dem Regisseur Joe Dante...
[...] During our chat, we couldn’t resist turning the conversation to GREMLINS, although Dante was pretty resolute that he won’t be involved in a third film. "They did that once, they won’t do it again," Dante told BD, laughing. "They made that mistake once. Its a moot point, they won’t be coming to me." (Laughs) "I can tell you that for a fact."
When asked to elaborate, Dante only grinned, saying, "I don’t have to. See Looney Tunes: Back in Action and I think that will explain it. That was not a pleasant experience."
Still, Dante believes GREMLINS 3 will happen one of these days, whether he’s involved or not. "I find it hard to believe that they won’t make a GREMLINS 3 because they’re remaking ADVENTURES IN BABYSITTING. I mean, they’re gonna remake everything."
Dante is involved in the current Blu-ray remasters of GREMLINS and GREMLINS 2: THE NEW BATCH and says Amblin is making a diligent effort to see they are done justice. "One thing about Amblin is that they are extremely filmmaker-friendly," says Dante. "When your movie is put out on any sort of video system, they bring you in and you check it out, they get your opinion. They color correct it, they run things for you. They are very, very good about that. We’ve been involved quite a lot."
The Blu-ray discs will likely feature the same material from the DVD special editions, although Dante is hoping to include a popular YouTube fan film. "I think its the same edition. I did two commentaries for GREMLINS 1. I don’t have any more commentary. I’ve been trying to get this GREMLINS short done by the guy in Belgium, which he did in his basement. He built his own Gremlins and shot them on green screen going into other Warner Bros. movies. This is on YouTube. It’s really clever, they guy is really talented. I’ve been trying to get Warner’s to put this thing as an extra on the disc, but I think it may be complicated by the fact that one scene is from the movie Indiana Jones, which they don’t own. And that may be what’s killing the deal. I really think this guy’s talented and people [should] discover him, because he should do GREMLINS 3."
The Blu-Ray version of GREMLINS has been temporarily delayed, but hopefully that will mean a better version at the end of the day. "I’ve seen the transfer," says Dante. "We did them over. In fact, I think GREMLINS 1 was supposed to come out this summer because it’s the 25th anniversary, but they didn’t make the date because they said, ‘We can do better than this, we can make it look better,’ and its worth making it look better, so they’re still working on it."
Bei Guardian.co.uk gibt es einen BT-Werbespot, in dem die Gremlins auftauchen...
Was having a chat to a trooper over at Warner Bros today about the "Gremlins 3" talk that arose this week. While my source isn’t based at Warner Premiere - the newly reformed direct to DVD arm of the Burbank boys - he can confirm that there has been a bit of talk about another "Gremlins" film in recent years at Warner, and believes the project may have been suggested as a 'Warner Premiere'.
"The talk has been going on for quite some time", the WB source says of a third "Gremlins" film, which many speculate will utilise CGI rather than puppetry. "I think that’s all it is at the moment. Talk. I know [name removed] has a pretty full slate over at Premiere - they’re looking at doing direct to video sequels to Scooby Doo and The Goonies, and as you mentioned, Premiere are soon to start production on The Lost Boys 2 and New Jack City 2 - so won’t be in any rush.
"..it isn’t possible to do anything on the budget of those [DTV sequels], and to be half decent, this thing would have to have a bit of money behind it, so I don’t think one can safely say it’ll definitely end up one of the titles on the Warner Premiere slate, but I believe its a consideration".

IESB sprach mit Frank Marshall...
[...] Gremlins - No go on Gremlins regarding any remakes or sequels. [...]
Bei DH gibt es einen Beitrag von "Turncoat" zu "Gremlins 3"...
[...] More of a 'possibility' than anything, Joe Dante has apparently been contacted about doing a new "Gremlins" movie. It's come up a few times and the main reason he's not jumping on is becuase the studio want it to be CGI - Dante would rather ol fashion; animatronic etc - as I'm sure we all would. I'm sure they'll do it anyway [it's happened before - hello T3?] Cute little Gizmo dolls in stores again".
[20.08.2002] Bei About.com gibt es ein Interview mit Joe Dante, in dem dieser u.a. über "Gremlins 3" spricht...
Have you ever thought of doing a third Gremlins? Have I ever thought about it? I've heard that Warner Brothers has thought about it but I kind of made my third Gremlins movie with Small Soldiers. The thing about the Gremlins movies is that with today's technology, they would be completely different in approach than the two that I made. Even though Gremlins 2 is a light years trade-up from the effects available for the first one, they're still basically puppet effects. There's no CG in the movie and now with the advent of CG, they could do anything you could think of. We were always limited in our story by what we knew we could get away with, so we didn't have them doing a lot of stuff that was impossible. Now, with CG, I think the sky's the limit. At the end of Gremlins 2, we have this large musical number with what looks like hundreds of gremlins in the lobby of the building. Each one of those was a real puppet and we wouldn't do that today.
Would you want to see CG gremlins? I can't say that I really have a need for that.
Part of the charm is that they're puppets. Well, I thought it was. That certainly ended up informing the whole series. The puppet-like qualities they had, we just sort of adapted to that. In the first film, they were originally just going to be little horrific creatures and then as we worked with them, we saw how funny they could be and how satiric. That changed the whole tone of the movie while we were making it.
Would Warner Brothers make a Gremlins 3 without you? There's definitely a chance. I've understood that they have actually made efforts at scripts and every so often I read an odd item in columns that says, "Oh, so and so is working on Gremlins 3" but then I check it with other people and they say no, it's not true. I can't imagine that it isn't somewhere in their pile of unmade movies. [...]
[13.08.2002] Bei GENRE Online gibt es eine positive Kritik der "Gremlins" Special Edition RC1-DVD...
[13.06.2002] Sci Fi Wire meldet...
Director Joe Dante told SCI FI Wire that he developed DVD special editions for his genre films Gremlins, Gremlins 2, Innerspace and The Howling simultaneously. The Gremlins discs, available Aug. 20, will have the most new content, with commentaries, deleted scenes, a gag reel, behind-the-scenes documentaries and alternate-language tracks, the director said in an interview.
"Gremlins 1 has two audio tracks," Dante said. "One is me and the cast, and one is me and the effects producers. But there's less missing footage than there is on Gremlins 2. Gremlins 2 has 20 minutes of it, plus a gag reel. We never made a gag reel on Gremlins 1, so that's why there isn't anything there. Gremlins 1 also has a documentary that was made at the time, I think, by Mick Garris, which was shot on 16mm. We found that, and everybody looks younger, so that's great. Also, I've been told there are French and Spanish tracks, which should be more interesting than usual, because we actually redid the entire soundtrack of all the gremlins for the foreign editions. We actually rewrote all the stuff to make it appeal to the various localities. So listening to gremlins speaking French and Spanish ought to be interesting." [...]
