Alexander Skarsgard, James Marsden and Kate Bosworth in the Straw Dogs trailer
Posted by: Brad Sturdivant
I’m not sure a remake of the 1971 film STRAW DOGS that starred Dustin Hoffman was really necessary, but these days, Hollywood doesn’t really care about necessity, it’s about remakes and sequels. So with that in mind, I bring you the trailer for the 2011 version of STRAW DOGS. The premise wasn’t really original in 1971 and it revolves around a married couple that return to the wife’s home town to prepare her father’s house for sale. But the wife wasn’t completely honest with her hubby and they end up hiring her ex boyfriend to repair the roof. But then things get bad and the boyfriend and his cronies attack the couple in the middle of the night.
The film stars James Marsden and Kate Bosworth as the married couple and True Blood’s Alexander Skarsgard as the deranged ex-boyfriend. Rod Lurie (RESURRECTING THE CHAMP) is directing the film. STRAW DOGS will hit theaters on September 16th.
