Don't Let Them In: New Set of Wordy 'Straw Dogs' Character Posters
I Will Not Allow Violence Against This House! A new set of character posters and complimentary official poster for Rod Lurie's Straw Dogs remake have hit the web, unveiled on the film's official Facebook (via Awards Daily). We've seen at least one trailer for this remake, starring James Marsden, Kate Bosworth, Alexander Skarsgård and Dominic Purcell, and early buzz is that this might actually be good, but I can't say these posters are impressive. Some strong words, but they just look awkward as movie posters, and don't do anything to make me more interested in this. What about you? Click on any one below for full-size.
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. Watch the first trailer here.
That last official poster is gonna make everyone think its a vampire movie.

Looks like Taken.

If it were any good why didn't it go to Cannes, Tribeca or Sundance? How come Lurie hasn't screened it for critics yet?

@Sammy Speaking of Taken, that movie didn't go to Cannes, Tribeca or Sundance either and it was fucking brilliant. Film festivals are not the yard stick with which to judge every indie movie by.
