Trailer Bulletin: The Wicker Man

by | June 6, 2006 | Comments

Frankly I wouldn’t have the guts to remake a cult classic as adored as Robin Hardy’s "The Wicker Man," but obviously I am not Neil LaBute and/or Nicolas Cage. The filmmakers have a new-fangled version of "The Wicker Man" on the way, and you can check out the all-new trailer right here.

For those who’ve not yet seen the original film, I’ll avoid spoilers, but the story is about a policeman who travels to an isolated island to find a missing kid. At first he thinks the locals are just weirdoes … but there’s a lot more to it than that. (Do yourself a favor and rent the original; Netflix has it.)

Anyway, the new one, which comes from the star of "National Treasure" and the director of "In the Company of Men," hits theaters on September 1st.
