On the heels of the success of The Invisible Man⭐️⭐️⭐️½, it’s worth noting another Universal monsters picture that is in the pipeline.
Elizabeth Banks and her company have pitched a reboot/remake of The Invisible Woman (1941).
If you haven’t seen the original film, look, YouTube has the original trailer.
You can stream or download and watch Universal Studios Monsters 1941 The Invisible Woman : Free Download, Borrow, and Streaming : Internet Archive via The Internet Archive. Movies posted on that site are supposed to be in the public domain.
I did a bit of checking to try and determine if this movie, in fact, is in the public domain and quickly got a headache.
If it’s still copyrighted, I’ll remove the link above, because I don’t want to link to any copyright infringing movie download sites. If anybody knows the disposition of this movie, please advise in the comments so I can be a responsible netizen.
As for Elizabeth Banks’ reboot/remake? I hope she does better with this Universal property than she did with Charlie’s Angels ⭐️½ (2019). That could have had potential, if Banks had stayed truer to the original formula, but she didn’t. The Invisible Man turned things around and changed the protagonist and it worked, but not sure Banks will be able to do that with The Invisible Woman and share similar success. It would be interesting to see it about an abused man in a relationship with the woman … but no, I’m guessing that would never happen.
It’s First Look Friday and there will be a couple of posts later today featuring movies we haven’t profiled here yet. It’s snowing here today in Washington state. Kind of thought we were past snow and heading into spring.
One thought on “The Invisible Woman (1941) being remade by Elizabeth Banks”
I never knew there was an Invisible Woman movie. I’m definitely going to put it on my quarantine watch list. The latest version of the Invisible Man was so scary because the thought of a tech enabled stalker is just too much as a woman in the modern era. It would be interesting to see this played out with the woman being the abuser. Make victims of violence is never explored in Hollywood and it would be a refreshing take.
