Death at a Funeral US Remake – Movie Trailer
The world has officially gone mad. It may not look like it if you just poke your head out the window. In fact it may look like every other day that has come before it, but realise that somewhere deep in the collective psyche of the planet one little bolt has sheared off and something much bigger has snapped, which has lead to something else breaking, which has in turn lead to some moron somewhere in America thinking that it was a fine and dandy idea to remake a film less than 2 years after it’s initial release in the SAME LANGUAGE.
A while back we reviewed a lovely little British comedy about death, life, midgets, families and what happens when you take the wrong drugs at the wrong time (Check it out here). It was a well made film, it had a good cast and made sense to people on both sides of the big pond, as it’s humor was “universal.” Now some douchebag has decided that it needed to be remade in Americanese with an almost entirely black cast. I have no complaints that the casting has become so afro american-centric. I want to make that abundantly clear. My problem is that they are remaking this at all. Oh and that it has Martin Lawrence in it. That guy is a charisma black hole.
I mean for crying out fucking loud, the original was directed by Frank Oz! He’s American!!!!! And this one is directed by Neil LaBute, the magnificent ASSHOLE responsible for remaking the Wicker Man! My soul cries! While it does, just go and watch the trailer…
See what i mean? ? Will James Marsden save the day on this one? Isn’t that the same midget they got in the UK film? Why would you remake something in the same language while the DVD has still not yet gone to weekly? Feedback and let us know!
