Kate Bosworth, Alexander Skarsgard and James Marsden in 'Straw Dogs' Trailer

Straw Dogs is a remake of the 1971 groundbreaking film from director  Sam Peckinpah, starring Dustin Hoffman and Susan George. The psychological thriller revolves around the twisted relationship of a couple (Marsden and Bosworth) that decide to move to the country and live where the Bosworth's character grew up.  However, they run into some issues with some of the locals, one in particular (Skarsgard) who seem to want to cause them trouble.  Things get pretty heated and escalate quickly!

The original film came out during the time of films such as Last House on the Left, A Clockwork Orange and Dirty Harry.  It was criticized for it's extreme examples of violence.  So as you can see, we are DEFINITELY in for a wild ride! Straw Dogs comes out September 16th!  What do you guys think??
