Death at a Funeral remake trailer

ChrisRock.jpgThere's a trailer online for the American remake of Death at a Funeral, the Frank Oz directed British comedy. Now that it's over in America there's one thing that stands out from the trailer straight away, and that's the lack of subtlety.

Pretty much I have to say I'm dreading this remake, and the trailer has just hammered home that thought for me. It's not looking good.

The remake, just three years after the release of the original, comes from Neil LaBute and stars Zoe Saldana, Luke Wilson, James Marsden, Danny Glover, Martin Lawrence, Columbus Short, Chris Rock, Peter Dinklage, Tracy Morgan, Regina Hall and Loretta Devine to name but a few.

It really doesn't appeal to me, so what about you? Here's the trailer for Death at a Funeral which you can also see in high definition over at Yahoo Trailers.

You know I still don't understand the need to remake this film, especially from Neil LaBute, didn't he already learn his lesson?



This has to be the quickest remake in the history of cinema. More importantly, the original is one of the funniest and best written films I have seen in the last 10 years. I have seen it 6 times.

I will definitely not see the unnecessary remake. The trailer I saw at the theater made it clear to me.
