New 'Straw Dogs' Poster Remembers How Reflections Actually Work
Last month, we got a look at the first poster for Straw Dogs, the remake of the 1971 film from director Rod Lurie. Considering the fact that the original poster has been regarded as one of the best of its time, apparently those who crafted the new poster just didn't think they could do any better and merely recreated the poster, but with James Marsden's glasses broken and Alexander Skarsgaard being reflected in them. But you can't have a reflection without glass, and while I would've preferred the whole poster be redesigned, a new version, with better real-life representation of reflections and glass has surfaced.
Seems weird that they removed the color from inside the lens of the glasses, but whatever:
And just to refresh your memory, here's the original first poster with the reflection on no glass:
L.A. screenwriter David Sumner (Marsden) relocates with his wife to her hometown in the deep South. While tensions build between them, a brewing conflict with the locals becomes a big threat to them both.
Straw Dogs is both written and directed by Israeli filmmaker Rod Lurie, of The Contender, The Last Castle, The Nazi, Resurrecting the Champ and Nothing But the Truth. This is a remake of David Zelag Goodman & Sam Peckinpah's 1971 film, based on Gordon Williams' novel "The Siege of Trencher's Farm". Screen Gems is finally bringing Straw Dogs to theaters starting on September 16th this fall. Anyone interested in this?
