Straw Dogs is this week's most ridiculous trailer

It's been 40 years since the original Straw Dogs starring Dustin Hoffman and Susan George was released, and in the updated version being released tonight, rural England has been replaced with the South, giving the whole thing a red state vs. blue state feel from the start. It's also kind of ridiculous.

Watch this week's most ridiculous trailer below.

So what can we learn from this?

Toughen up you nancy liberals, or your new wife could call you a coward while your former boyfriend-like person (played by a sweatier Alexander Skarsgård, who plays a very dead Eric Northman on True Blood) and his posse, one of which looks like a younger Larry the Cable Guy tread further on your turf.
