Sony Screen Gems has released another official one sheet and a trio of character posters for Straw Dogs, Rod Lurie’s remake of Sam Peckinpah’s 1971 classic arriving in theaters September 16. After the boxoffice bomb of Fright Night 3D, you have to think Sony is a bit concerned right about now…
Anyways, the official poster is a modern version of the 1971 version, but depicts the film’s antagonist, Charlie, as played by “True Blood” fav Alexander Skarsgård. It’s a nice piece of imagery that will catch anyones eye as they walk by in a theater. On the other hand, the character posters are tedious, spewing quotes from the movie by the character portrayed. A big finger down the throat.
In the reboot, “David and Amy Sumner (James Marsden and Kate 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 (Alexander Skarsgård), leading to a violent confrontation.”
