Rod Luries remake of the controversial British shocker, Straw Dogs, is due out on November 4th, its a while off yet but the marketing chaps behind the film have really been pushing the film. We have already seen a very impressive trailer, a massive image gallery and a few previous clips, and now there are three brand new clips for you to feast your eyes on.
The new version stars James Marsden, Kate Bosworth,Alexander Skarsgard and James Woods and it looks as if this remake will be following the same route as previous controversial movie remakes, I Spit on Your Grave and The Last House on the Left. In that, I mean there will be a lot more violence and menace, but as to if the film will actually be better than the original, well, you’ll just have to wait and see.
David and Amy Sumner (James Marsden and Kate 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 (Alexander Skarsgård), leading to a violent confrontation.
