‘Straw Dogs’ poster

Posted by · 5:52 pm · June 14th, 2011

Rod Lurie’s “Straw Dogs” will be hitting theaters this September. The trailer hit last month. Today, the poster. I’m glad marketing went head-on by not just invoking, but straight up reconstituting the striking imagery from the original film’s one-sheet. If you’re gonna do it, might as well go all out. Lurie revealed it today via Twitter. Check out the full image after the jump.

    Ugh. The original film may not be perfect, but the last thing that needs to happen is to take that material, gun it up to 11 and inject it with a bunch of stereotypical inbred psychos.

    The original film got under my skin. This just looks like soulless garbage.

    Took a hard to mess up poster and somehow made it awful.

    i still don’t get why Straw Dogs is being remade at all. there’s no way Hoffman’s performance can be equalled.

    The cultdom for the original film will certainly try to kill this.

    It looks like Skarsgard’s face is reflecting in the glasses, but I think that piece of glass is missing.

    Juan, not everyone sits at their computer every second of the day. Sheesh.

    Love the original poster, hate the original film. This poster… well, it’s stupid. How come there’s a face being reflected inside the glasses frame in the spot were the glass has fallen out?

    Reconstituting the original imagery… with all the design finesse taken out. This is a dismal effort.

    How is there a reflection when there’s no glass?

    I think the better question is, who keeps giving Kate Bosworth acting gigs?
