Blood Simple remake trailer online

BloodSimple.jpgThere's a trailer online for the Chinese remake of Blood Simple, remember that great Coen Brothers thriller with bags of style? Well the new one goes under the title of San Qiang Pai An Jing Qi, otherwise known as Amazing Tales: Three Guns, a film we heard about a while back and only recently heard about the name and the cast.

There was nothing revealed about the plot, and that seems to remain the same with the trailer, a trailer which is more confusing than just about anything I've seen, and is merely a collection of images, some comedic, some serious.

San Qiang Pai An Jing Qi which I believe translates to The Stunning Case of the Three Gun Shots, but is carrying an English title of Amazing Tales: Three Guns, is directed by Zhang Yimou and stars Honglei Sun, Xiao Shen-Yang, Dahong Ni and Xiaojuan Wang and is a loose translation of the Blood Simple film starring Frances McDormand, John Getz, M. Emmet Walsh and Dan Hedaya.

Blood Simple was a strong and intelligent thriller that had a really stylistic turn to it, and yes, there were some comedic elements to it but they were adult and kept very much in tone with the film. Here I it seems they've been pulled right out and made almost slapstick.

It's a confusing trailer from Sina through Twitch and RowThree, apologies there are no direct links for either of the source articles, and it's right here for you to have a look at and attempt some sense from. Good luck there.
