Screen Gems Gets Violent With Their ‘Straw Dogs’ Trailer

Just yesterday we brought your the first “tense” stills from Rod Lurie’s remake of Straw Dogs, which stars James Marsden, Kate Bosworth, Alexander Skarsgard, James Woods, Dominic Purcell and Willa Holland.

Being that it’s Sony Screen Gems, it was unclear just how “dark” the redo would be. Tonally similar to I Spit On Your Grave and Last House on the Left, inside you’ll find a pretty violent trailer for the thriller arriving in theaters September 16.

David and Amy Sumner (Marsden and 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 (Skarsgård), leading to a violent confrontation.
