Although I hadn't realised Brolin was such a violent man...
especially to women on set.
...almost exactly the same! Certain shots look pretty much identical.
That said, I think it looks great. I really like Josh Brolin and Samuel L Jackson. Just a shame I already know the twist...
as a percentage.
I'd say Spike Lee and Samuel L Jackson will add more widespread appeal
hahaha evil british guy alert
doesn't that trailer effectively reveal the main twist from the original film?
he'll know not to fuck her then right?
if he knows what his daughter looks like in this one?
The Guardian article says that it does have that the twist is the same.
She could be anyone!
Also, I hope people realise that both films are based on a Manga.
What then???? eh eh eh?
"oh, we're making this from the original manga, it's not really a remake of the film."
*proceeds to copy iconic scenes from the film frame for frame*
Is it worth a read even though I've seen the Korean film?
but the Korean version is noted for being a very loose adaptation. Apparently the manga is done with the people running the 'prison' as soon as he's released and is nowhere near as violent. So if they were adapting from the manga they wouldn't goive the head prison warden role to Samuel L Jackson, which suggests to me he'll play an even bigger part than in Park Chan Wook's version. And the hammer scene couldn't happen.
Also the manga is much less incesty. I'm guessing they're using, "adapted from the original manga" as an excuse to shy away from the big twist.
Nipple head at 15 seconds
I dont think that we'll see a hollywood version of the squid, not sure if the teeth thing happens and i hope that they keep the corridor scene as a one shot piece!
yeah, the squid bit would only really make sense if it was set in korea anyhow.
Or there's a re-release of the original without the octopus bit.
For my sins ive been made to watch this film. Its so bad.
That's something for the weekend then
What would be the point/incentive to see this if it's just the same?
