Funny Games We haven't heard too much from writer/director Michael Haneke's suspense thriller FUNNY GAMES, an English language remake of his own Austrian film, but that's probably because it centers on two white-gloved young psychotics (Michael Pitt - an always reliable choice when a film is hurting for a young deranged sociopath - and Brady Corbet) who happen upon a cabin and proceed to terrorize the couple found within (Naomi Watts and Tim Roth). Films of this sort don't get a lot of play in mainstream media but lucky for us, we today at least have a look at a rather blanched and relatively eerie (if placed in context) second poster for the film. Clickie HERE to get it in full bigness. The psychotic torture fun begins March 14th of next year.

He also always looks like he's retaining water (what a fat neck).

OK!

Not to get off topic here but why is it that Vince Vaughn always looks like he hasn't slept in months.

There might be some hope for this remake since it doesn't star Mr. Vaughn. I'm tired of his tired face.

Im all for it. This whole shot-for-shot talk really doesnt matter for me since its being adapted by the original director himself... plus, im a big michael haneke fan. this situation is totally different from gus van sant's remake of psycho. first of all, gus van sant isnt alfred hitchcock; second, ITS HITCHCOCK for christ's sake. remaking hitchcock is never a good idea. Third, the time gap between original and remake for psycho was too great, most elements in the original psycho have not

Third, the time gap between original and remake for psycho was too great, most elements in the original psycho have not stood the test of time, as you can see when viewing it in a modern context (the remake).

The last time I heard about a promising shot-by-shot remake, it starred Vince Vaughn, Anne Heche, and an old motel. That one sucked big time, so I'm being cautios now here.

Ever since I first heard about this remake I figured it was kind of a jab at the U.S.

I heard the original was made as an indictment of the violent excesses in most U.S. movies. With the recent torture-porn horror movies, I think it's especially appropriate now.

It's funny, even the trailer is pretty much a shot by shot copy of the original one. The fact that the director made it exactly the same film almost feels like a joke about the fact that Americans can't read subtitles. It's like a very clever 'f*ck you'.
I mean, it would probably have been cheaper to just dub it at that point...
