Much ink has been spent debating the merits of a Straw Dogs remake and whatever director Rod Lurie pulls out of the bag, this film and the original are likely to continue to court controversy.

Although Lurie continues to hold his cards close to his chest regarding the centre-piece of the film and how it will approach the (to say the least) problematic tone of the original, this clip begins to hint at the slight contempt in which Kate Bosworth holds James Marsden and the violence and aggression that clearly lurk within him, waiting to find a way out, looking for the right degree of provocation.

Given that it is a clip sitting wholly out of context from the rest of the finished film (which we’ll finally get to see on 4th November in the UK), it is hard to be too definitive, but it does seem to have plenty of atmosphere and a brooding sense of peril.

All will be revealed very soon. Thanks to for the heads-up.

Dave has been writing for HeyUGuys since mid-2010 and has found them to be the most intelligent, friendly, erudite and insightful bunch of film fans you could hope to work with. He's gone from ham-fisted attempts at writing the news to interviewing Lawrence Bender, Renny Harlin and Julian Glover, to writing articles about things he loves that people have actually read. He has fairly broad tastes as far as films are concerned, though given the choice he's likely to go for Con Air over Battleship Potemkin most days. He's pretty sure that 2001: A Space Odyssey is the most overrated mess in cinematic history.
