Funny Games poster

Feb. 5, 2008by: Ben Barna
There's nothing funny about the games played in FUNNY GAMES, but I guess that's the point. As you all know by now, GAMES is a remake by director Michael Haneke of his own 1997 Austrian film of the same name. The promotional material for this film has been pitch perfect so far, with the trailers and posters conveying the point that this is not your typical Hollywood release, and has more in common with its European origin than any typical thriller. This latest poster continues that trend, and features the two main sickos who torture a family just for the fun of it. That's Michael Pitt (LAST DAYS) on the left, and Brady Corbet (24) on the right, who look like very depressed twins. The film shall begin on April 4th.

Extra Tidbit: EW.com's Missy Schwartz caught the screening of FUNNY GAMES at Sundance, and boy oh boy was she disturbed.

I'm thinking this movie will be pretty bad ass. The poster isn't offering much but I absolutley loved the trailer and the clip with the dog haha I've never seen the 97 aussie film, nor have I actually heard of it, but i'll be checking it out eventually. As for that Michael Pitt guy, he's reminding me so much of Malcolm McDowell's Alex in Clockwork Orange.... I don't know, maybe i'm exaggerating but I'll see when its released. Also I forgot they moved it back to April, F*ck!

Ugh

EMO KIDS: The Major Motion Picture. At least the boring original had kids that looked like average kids. These guys look like villainous cartoons.
