Trailer Time: STRAW DOGS (2011) and RETREAT

Thursday, 13 October 2011

I’ve got a couple of awesome trailers for you this week, both of which are similar.  Maybe not in story line but in the format they are done.  Both have that captive in your own home feel and look as if they are going to be really gripping movies.

I have to be honest from the off here and tell you that I hadn’t even heard of the Straw Dogs original released in 1971 starring Dustin Hoffman, what I do know or have at least heard about it is that it’s a pretty brutal movie and looking at the trailer for this latest remake it seems to be no different.

David Sumner is a L.A screenwriter who relocates to his wife’s hometown, all is well at first but before long the couple start to get along not so well.  Tension then begins to grow between the local community and themselves.  Everyone has a braking point is the movies tagline and James Marsden’s just seems to be a little higher than everyone else’s,

As well as Marsden the movie also stars Kate Bosworth who plays his wife and chief antagonist Peter Scarsgard check out the trailer and let me know what you think.

Next up is a new one starring Cillian Murphy, why is he so good at being creepy, he played Scarecrow in Batman Begins remember and you read here last week that he is reprising the role for the Dark Knight Rises.  I have seen quite a few of Cillian’s movies and I can’t really recall a bad one.

Kate (Thandie Newton) and Martin (Cillian Murphy) are a couple in London who go to Blackholme Island, a remote and unpopulated place near Scotland in order to get away from recent events.  All is going well at the retreat until Jack (Jamie Bell) is washed ashore, or so it seems.  He brings news to the couple that a deadly airborne virus is sweeping through Europe and they must stay indoors.  Before long the couple realise that Jack is not all that he seems.

This movie looks great and the three names mentioned above are the only people in it, take a look at the trailer below.
