James Marsden does not allow violence against his house in this trailer for Straw Dogs

05.13.2011

The original version of STRAW DOGS directed by Sam Peckinpah and starring Dustin Hoffman was a great thriller. Now it's 40 years later and a remake of the film is ready to be seen.

In the trailer for the film, instead of the couple (Dustin Hoffman and Kate Bosworth) heading out to the English countryside, they stay in the states and relocate to the South. Overall it looks a little more amped up in the the violence department. I don't know what the perception of James Marsden is, but I think he's underrated. He seems to fit comfortably in the lead role and Kate Bosworth isn't getting on my nerves. Plus, you have Alexander Skarsgard leading the pack of redneck, rapey weirdos.

It's just the trailer, but how do you think it might compare? Check it out below.

"Love the original. Don't really think it needs to be remade... but I guess if it introduces a younger generation to the original, that ain't a bad thing."

This rarely happens. Rarely do people go back and watch the original.

They will turn the original film into a action movie with a bitchy wife that will "stand up to her husband" and they will over explain everything and the guy that rapes the women will be a former football star (Geez, they haven't went through this cliche enough, eh?).

BTW, did you notice Marsden regularly plays a guy who is ditched by a woman for another guy? (See the X-Men-Trilogy, Superman Returns, Enchanted, The Notebook)

I don't think he is underrated, he just doesn't get good leading roles.

But he's movie - Interstate 60 - IS underrated! Do yourself a favour and check it out!

James Marsden is becoming one of my favorite actors, very underrated. really liked him in Enchanted and Sex Drive but his role in Death at a Funeral solidified him as a great actor for me. Another great role was in Interstate 60, great indie movie, check it out

James Marsden is awesome

Anything from "Xmen" to "Enchanted" to "Sex Drive" he's a very versitile actor. even in movies like "Superman Returns" i liked how he played the character, strong and smart without being a jerk.

Looks good but...

Why are they showing the entire movie in the trailer? I want to be a little surprised at how he takes down some of these rednecks with rapists wits. Anyways looks like a pretty decent thriller.

I don't think he's underrated because I haven't really seen him excel in a performance. I believe he's a decent actor and thought he did pretty good in The Box. So maybe he just needs the right role. Maybe this movie will determine if he's underrated or not.

Are they gonna include the Henry Niles character? After all, he's the reason they raid the house in the original. Otherwise, this seems a surprisingly effective updating, though I tire of fear-mongering against southern country bumpkins. At the same time, the emigration of "Yanks" to the south is a lot more widespread than most movies would have you believe. James Marsden is certainly an underrated talent. He hasn't always gotten fair treatment by the scripts he was given (Cyclops tended to be

He hasn't always gotten fair treatment by the scripts he was given (Cyclops tended to be kind of whiny and annoying), but he's since proven there's more to him than that. Kate Bosworth, say what you will, but she reminds me a lot of Susan George from the original. I don't know if that's an accident.

George actually had a body and boobs. Kate doesn't.

Not to mention that Kate is just the type to play the bitchy housewife role.

Not sure

I agree Marsden is -extremely- underrated but I am not sure on this film. I think it will be the last 30 minutes that people will enjoy but also have to sit for the first 80 minutes and be annoyed by it. Not a bad cast but it screams B-movie all over. I might check it out. My GF loves that HBO series (i really cant recall the name, sorry)

Not only do I agree with the "marsden is underrated" factoid, but I stopped the trailer about 15 seconds or so from the end because I didn't want anything else to get spoiled.

I'm buying my ticket tomorrow...

I hate this idea. Once again, it's the "deep south" inbred assholes that start shit up again and fucks up city-folks' lives. Gimme a break.

Pots of Boiling Water/Oil

Its such a no-brainer weapon to counter a home invasion. So long as you have water and fire, you have boiling water. I automatically love any movie where the heroes do this. Dog Soldiers another fine example.

Peckinpah's absence will be felt (as I feel it every day even when I'm brushing my teeth), but I think there's potential here.

Southern Stereotypes...

Great, more proof that Hollywood thinks we're a bunch of violent morons. Nobody in the business can pull off a Southern accent anyway.

are you the type of person to go out and attempt a home invasion of a couples house. if not than the movie is not talking about you. learn not to generalize. there are obviously good people in that town. this movie just deals with the ones who are causing trouble because no one wants to see mom and pop bring over a freshly baked pie and then end credits. we wanna see people we can call villians get what they deserve. The Red Neck is like the other racial sterotypes, only offensive if you act

...instead of the couple (Dustin Hoffman and Kate Bosworth)...

it's not Hoffman, it's Marsden.

Me Likey!!!

I saw the original in my media course in the UK i saw it uncut but that didnt mean the film was great in fact it sucked and the idea of a remake has been something i found a great idea and then when it came a reality i was excited and then when James Marsden and Kate Bosworth came on board i was seriously blown away and now after having seen the trailer i cannot wait for this, the cast really impresses even alexander skarsgard who was really good in true blood but really shows a different side

So I guess Kate Bosworth didn't mind getting raped by Alexander Skarsgard in this.

I mean, they are a couple now.

I don't know. I thought Dustin Hoffman was really great in the original. And from the trailer it looks like they cut out the mentally challenged character.

I checked out the remakes for I Spit on your Grave and Last House of the Left so I'll probably eventually watch this one out of curiosity. I'm still waiting for them to announce a remake of Thriller: A Cruel Picture (aka They Call Her One Eye)
