European filmmaker is in the midst of remaking one of his most controversial films
for an American audience. Funny Games
is a film that may be difficult to watch for many. Here
is the trailer from the original 1997 version of the film. Micheael Haneke wants audiences to think about their own beliefs regarding violence
(insightful spoilers inside). Can Haneke find success with an American audience with a "shot by shot"
remake? Haneke discussed previously on mefi here
Here are a few stills
from the remake. The new film is rumored to be opening in about 7 weeks
. If this is true, it will be released the week of Halloween. Haneke's work could help rethink the horror genre as we know it.
