"The plane! The plane!": Anticipation for Fantasy Island

I'm really surprised they're bringing this back after the failure of the '98 reboot and the 2020 movie.

Creatively the previous reboot was actually quite interesting. It was held to very strict standards for ratings though and might have succeeded with more time. 

The 2020 film was, I thought, considered a success, at least financially. It made close to $50 million on a budget of a paltry $7 million. That's a success for a niche horror film in the days of dying theaters. And that with it running right up against the start of the first COVID lockdown, meaning it could have made tons more. The reviews savaged it, but I think the mere fact it made money helped get the TV reboot greenlit.
