Rod Lurie’s remake of the vicious chiller Straw Dogs staring Dustin Hoffman is not far off hitting UK cinemas, and in preparation a large gallery of images have been released. There are some cool images here, but none really go to much lengths to explain just how nasty this tale gets. If you would like to see proof that this remake will (hopefully) live up to the reputation of the original, click here for more news and the superb trailer.
The remake stars James Marsden, Kate Bosworth, Alexander Skarsgard and James Woods. Due for release in UK cinemas 4th November, here is the synopsis followed by the image gallery:
David and Amy Sumner (Marsden and Bosworth), a Hollywood screenwriter and his actress wife, return to her small hometown in the deep South to prepare the family home for sale after her father’s death. Once there, tensions build in their marriage and old conflicts re-emerge with the locals, including Amy’s ex-boyfriend Charlie (Skarsgard), leading to a violent confrontation.
