The terms "remake" and "reimagining" are somewhat interchangeable and fall under the same [[TropesAreFlexible general heading]], but there is [[Administrivia/TheSameButMore a difference of degree]]. Reimaginings take more liberties with the original than remakes typically do, so billing a project as a reimagining is a signal that the audience should not expect it to closely follow the original.

Added DiffLines:

* The seminal German expressionist 1920 film ''Film/TheCabinetOfDrCaligari'' was remade as a sound film in English in 2005 by David Lee Fisher with the same title. Many shots reproduced the distorted look of the 1920 version via greenscreen. (''Dr. Caligari'' is an 1989 erotic film with no other connection, and ''The Cabinet of Caligari'', 1962, used the name but is a completely different story.)

* An unusual triple threat: Leo [=McCarey=]'s ''Love Affair'' (1939), starring Irene Dunne and Charles Boyer, was remade (by Leo [=McCarey=]) as ''An Affair to Remember'' (1957) with Deborah Kerr and Creator/CaryGrant, which was remade ''again'' (by a different director) as ''Love Affair'' (1994) with Annette Bening and Warren Beatty. Ironically, ''Film/AnAffairToRemember'' is regarded as the best of the three, which has led to a general assumption that ''An Affair to Remember'' [[OlderThanTheyThink was the original]].
