Monthly Wallpaper - March 2013: Remakes

Remakes get a bad rap most of the time, and usually for good reason (Tim Burton's Planet of the Apes, anyone?). However, every once in a while lightning can strike twice, yielding a fresh new take on an old favorite, and it is those remakes that we are celebrating with this month's Movie Dearest Calendar Wallpaper.

Whether it is the addition of sound (Ben-Hur), color (An Affair to Remember), songs (A Star is Born), nudity (The Fly), gratuitous violence (Scarface), the English language (The Birdcage), or even a change of gender for a main character (His Girl Friday), these cinematic do-overs prove that sometimes a good story is worth a fresh retelling.

Just click on the picture above to enlarge it to its 1024 x 768 size, then right click your mouse and select "Set as Background", and you're all set.
