    Horrible botox forehead veins on Bosworth. Maybe if she didn’t lead such an unhealthy lifestyle, she wouldn’t need botox at 28.

    @okay: I guess so, cause here is the older post with the trailer. There is no new information with this post. I guess they need to keep their names out there or something.

    haha this is sad, you already posted this JJ. I guess they can’t allow Alex to bash in his fame without Lurie/KB milking it. It still sucks for second as well.

    Mike Says:

    WTF? Dude, don’t steal names. As if I would ever give Bonesworth a compliment. Chick looks rough in the second picture. The movie itself might be ok, but she’s the weak link for sure.

  11. 11
    Starving for attention Says:

    This is what the whole showmance was about. Alex doesn’t want to be seen with her anymore so instead of random pap sitings to promote the movie, we get this. I’ll take it over having to see her smug, smirking face anywhere near him. Once the movie is released, we (Alex included) should be released from the hell of seeing her in regards to him. It can’t come soon enough.

  12. 12
    Seriously? Says:

    God forbid Jared actually talks about relevant Skarsgard news, like for instance the epic ratings True Blood scored on Sunday. Oh no, let’s remind everyone about Straw Dogs instead *rolls eyes*

    Orlando Says:

    I miss you.

    Mike Says:

    Also, this is the same crappily cut trailer that was on the first post a few weeks ago. Totally lame that you’d post it again JJ. I’m surprised you’re not pimping out that moron director’s twitter account too.

  15. 15
    Chloe Says:

    LOL! That actually made me laugh. KB looks brutal in that still picture. She’s going to suck, I can tell just from the trailer. I hate the way she says “guns” it’s as annoying as the way she sang, and I use that term loosely, the word “cot-ton”.

  16. 16
    Chloe Says:

    Way to not give James Marsden any love in the title of this post too JJ. God, I feel sorry for that poor bugger, having to put up with this fauxmance getting all the publicity.

    Shannon Says:

    Her forehead…ouch. I guess this is the only way Jared can get them in a post together right now.

    stee-low-flow Says:

    I realy don’t want to know about his personal life because his persona/character on TrueBlood is cool…this is distracting.

    And the previous poster is correct. Where is the “good news” that TrueBlood was awesome Sunday. ..(episode 2 is even –it’s on demand)

    KS Says:

    Alexander looks really good in this movie. He is playing a bad guy, but he is agreat actor, so I’ll watch the movie. He is super hot!

    James Marsden is the main character he should be on that picture.

    Doreen Says:

    Alex looks great as per usual, though I do think it’s unfair that James doesn’t get any billing. He’s just as big of a character in this movie, maybe more so. Also, I notice JJ didn’t mention anything about the relationship to promote this movie. He usually can’t wait to get a mention in there somehow. I think he did the last time he posted this trailer.

    lulu Says:

    I still think that Kate can thanks to Gwyneth for her career and status in Hollywood in last two years.. from the thing with Chris Martin…

  26. 26
    what? Says:

    this tailer is no different from the 1st trailer that was released in may, I expected some new scenes, and they always show the best part of the movie!
    I will only watch it once in comes on TV, if there is nothing on then SD wlll be my last resort!

  27. 27
    Chloe Says:

    It’s one of those trailers where you kind of get the feeling that the best parts of the movie are already shown, and the rest is just filler.

  28. 28
    Camille Says:

    Uh, this is the exact same trailer as before, and why is it not tagged to James Marsden too. It’s disgusting how JJ doesn’t respect any of the other actors in this movie. Someone said this trailer seems long, and they’re right. It’s 3 minutes long. Most are wrapped up in 2 minutes, 2.5 max.

    I’m surprised that JJ hasn’t posted Rod Lurie’s stupid twitter messages begging people to follow him and watch this movie, and get free updates from his page. Yeah, cause you can’t get those anywhere else Rod. *eyeroll*

  29. 29
    what? Says:

    Also there is new pap pics of alex!!!!!!! alexander skarsgard leaves blue jam-cafe in west-hollywood.
    I think JJ forgot about these! JJ has moderated my comment twice for posting new pics of alex

    by the way JJ. here is some info for you, alexander was having lunch with his Generation Kill pal James Ransone you have a hard time in mentioning his actor pals? but you are more then happy to mention Kate bonesworth, oh and she was not with them before you start mentioning her in alex’s next lunch post

    Skarsgard wannabe Says:

    The movie’s been screening at college campuses, was pushed back for release how many times? and is now being pimped out over 2 months in advance… don’t have high hopes for it recouping much at the box office, stellar performances aside.

    Kate Bosworth Says:

    He looks fab there. I love the way the sun is glinting of his chest. Yay, he’s hanging out with PJ. I love PJ, he was so awesome in GK.

  33. 33
    Camille Says:

    @Skarsgard wannabe:
    I think that’s a big red flag, the campus thing. Plus being pushed back as well. I doubt it will make much at the box office. Though how much did it cost to shoot it?

    Lilla Says:

    Alex looks hot as usual! Where is the James Marsden love? Isn’t James Woods in this too?

    Aww love the pics with JR. That mini series was amazing.

  36. 36
    Jessie Says:

    I hate to say it, but after watching the trailer again this looks like a stinker of a movie. Not solely because of KB, but just in general. The trailer is all over the place, and if they’re trying to sell it as some kind of revenge suspense thing to entice men, I don’t think it’s going to work very well. I can’t see this one garnering a big audience.

  37. 37
    Whatever Says:

    Funny how JJ can mention her and show pictures of her a thousand times with Alex, but when he’s actually out in public with other people he doesn’t say anything.Well I guess we know who’s paying for this publicity.

    Frozoid Says:

    Why are they redoing this? The first Straw Dogs with Dustin Hoffman was a classic!

  40. 40
    Skarsgard wannabe Says:

    Per IMDb, the estimated budget was 12.5 million. I like ASkars (obviously) but if I ever see this movie, it will be on my movie channel at home where it doesn’t cost me anything outside of my regular bill. Unless this thing gets incredible word of mouth, I think i’ll be able to hold out. It’s not even the fact that i’m not a KBos-the-actress fan, it’s that in this economy I don’t care for the plot, etc. to spend the money.

  41. 41
    ladybug Says:

    @what?: I tried linking those pics this morning and it went into moderation. Hmm.

    I do have to wonder why JJ is reposting this trailer when it’s not new.

    Santress has brand new gym pics up, I’m not going to link, lest it be moderated.

  42. 42
    Tanter Says:

    This movie really looks like a stinker and the director really isn’t helping with his pathetic use of twitter. He’s all but begging for retweets and now he’s trying to compare the movie with Thelma and Louise *headdesk* I like Alex. I think he’s very talented and I hope he will have a great carrer but just about everything about this movie really looks bad.

  43. 43
    Jessie Says:

    @Skarsgard wannabe:
    That goes to show you what they got paid to do this movie then. Alex wasn’t very well known at the time, so he wouldn’t get too much. Lots of KB stans go on about her work and how she can afford stuff, but she gets most of that for free, and she can’t be making much more than a million for a movie. I doubt it’s even that much actually. 12.5 million is barely anything and you have to pay cast, crews, get permits, materials for sets, costumes, and equipment,etc out of all that.

  44. 44
    burnt bacon Says:

    A few things:
    1. There are other people in this movie too, just so you know.
    2. I have to reiterate how hideously creepy it is that you these two as the most romantykal kupple liek EVAR considering what his character does to hers. Yeah, fiction and reality are seperate and all, but it’s still squicky.
    3. Pimping the trailer over and over isn’t going to make the film suck any less.

  45. 45
    JM Says:

    I’m actually happy for James Marsdan and he should be too. When this movie ineitably bombs, no one will remember he was attached to it because all the PR has been focused on The Skarsworthless epic love story *gags*.

  46. 46
    tami Says:

    @ladybug: It would have been nice of JJ to post the new pictures of Alex with his friends at lunch or at the Gym instead of another repeat post of the same trailer. If it wasn’t obvious before it should be now that he is being paid by Kate’s people to put these to together. And it’s sad that James who is a lead, is basically being left out as if he is a supporting cast member in the movie.

  47. 47
    tami Says:

    @JM: That is definitely the bright side to the snubbing of James. Maybe he won’t have this movie following him around if it bombs.

  48. 48
    Kino Says:

    Is Eric again. He can’t play another character.

  49. 49
    ladybug Says:

    @tami: Funny thing is, they have the same publicist. And yet Robin seems to have to do a lot more to KB mentioned.
    @Jessie, I can’t really see her making a million per film, even as overpaid as most actors/actresses are. Maybe for Superman Returns. Possibly for Warrior’s Way. But until recently she hasn’t worked much at all, and even now that’s she is working, it’s very small budget films. Admittedly, she’ll make this year than I ever will in my life, but for someone who’s been around HW as long as she has, she’s not making that much.

  50. 50
    He stands out on film Says:

    He looks good in this part, but this trailer has already been distributed awhile ago. JM and AS look good and their acting is great. I dont know about KB though. It seems she is working really hard at it, it does not come natural to her. What is with her running with no shoes on, who does that. LOL Is that suppose to be I am back to the nature type? Not sure what that is about.

  51. 51
    Allons - y Allonso Says:

    it’s a shame that James Marsden, who i guess is the leading man in the film (?) has been completely overshadowed by these two losers.

  52. 52
    what? Says:

    Gosh JJ why are you not paying me for all the hard work I am doing for you, new gym pictures of alex!

  53. 53
    SPOILER!!! Says:

    I hope it’s better than the original. Cuz the original was God-awful. It was supposed to be groundbreaking back in the day, but unfortunately, it doesn’t hold up. I’m curious to know though if they will keep the rape scene in (between what is now ASkars and Bosworth).

  54. 54
    Lisa Says:

    So saw another shot of Alex today at a coffee shop without Kate anywhere in sight, sorry but I think they have broken up, no way they would be apart this long without being seen .

    Also she would have been at that TB premiere.

  55. 55
    Jessie Says:

    Hot stuff!! New shirt too!

    OMG one of the yuku chicks wrote on Ransone’s twitter, and asked a bunch of stupid questions like what Alex ordered and crap. I can only assume she’s being purposefully obtuse, at least I hope so. Poor guy would be freaked out. They’re also still speculating about Alex and KB breaking up.

  56. 56
    Shannon Says:

    @Jessie: I thought he deleted his twitter

  57. 57

    Apparently he’s back on it, because they were all posting about it.

  58. 58
    Greta Says:

    Have to say the trailer is exciting and I’m looking forward to seeing the movie. I like the cast and I also liked The Contender directed by Rod Lurie. My guess is SD will do very well at the box office.

    spanky Says:

    Do you think the silly jealous posteres at JJ realize people are laughing at them?! It’s the entertainment the site has to offer.

  60. 60
    Kim Says:

    Even though I find the rape scene uncomfortable, I will still support this movie for two reasons: AS and JM. By all accounts, they do a great job in this film (especially AS). The trailer makes it look so intense and you can tell AS shine in this movie. I guess I will have to leave the theater for some popcorn when the actual rape scene come on and then go back when that scene is over.

  61. 61
    Rachel() Says:

    What’s wrong Jared? Kate couldn’t trick Alex into taking a pic w/ her? Trying to fulfill your contractual agreements? This is so freaking lame. Some “gossip” sight this is. The comments are more interesting than anything Jared says. Are we supposed to be excited about this recycled post b/c there’s an exclamation point at the end of it?!

    How does she do it? Girl is filming 6 movies at the same time, no wonder she be nowhere to be seen. Guess the viking juice is pure redbull or the elixir from god himself.

    newbornwings Says:

    that was a retweet by him. Someone else made the original tweet.

    I agree Rod Lurie is too needy on twitter about movie but I have seen 4 15 min clips from movie and it is brilliantly done. I was around when original was released and saw it then too. It was a classic. And this new rendition is a story unto itself. I will go see it when it is released and I already know the ending. I want the missing moments I have not seen.

    For those of you not wanting to see AS as a bad guy you might be surprised at why things happen the way they do in the film.

  66. 66
    Tanter Says:

    @newbornwings: I don’t care if it was a retweet. Dude is embarrasing. Needy, yes and arrogant too IMO. Also quite amatourish. I feel no need to see this film, sorry. There might be great acting from some of the actors and a new take on an old story but the execution fails IMO as does the production and promotion of the film. Someone should have shut KB and her famewhoring of her relationship with Alex down a long, long time ago because that made it impossible to take this movie seriously. She has flaunted the relationship to gain attention and that has stolen away all credibility from the movie IMO. Laurie being so desperate doesn’t help.

    Bosworth makes it impossible to watch any movie or to take it seriously.

    treyc Says:

    I don’t see this movie doing well. If it does, it is because of ASkars. This is why they are promoting it using his scenes, It seems like this movie is done countless times before.

    lafamepoma Says:

    What happened with kate and Chris Martin? BTW in the photo of the top Alex looks good-looking but kate looks like these clowns that scare.

  74. 74
    Camille Says:

    Totally agree. Lurie looks like a total butthead on his twitter, begging people to retweet and follow him. Like I said before, used car saleman tactics. It doesn’t do anything to help the validity or integrity of the work at all. This movie is not going ot make a ton of money. Granted it cost almost nothing to make as far as H’wood standards go, but I’ll be surprised if it even recoups its cost and makes a profit. The shameless pimping of the relationship is going to turn a lot of people off watching it, who might have otherwise done so because there will be a large segment that will not want to see them together on screen. KB is long known as box office poison, and casting her isn’t going to help bring in viewers. I feel sorry for Marsden in all this. I actually really enjoy him, and he’s going to suffer the effects of all this BS.

  75. 75
    Camille Says:

    There are rumours that KB had an affair with Chris Martin back in the fall of 2009. She used to be friends with Gwyneth Paltrow, Stella McCartney, and that crew. After those rumours came out she hasn’t been seen with any of them since and has cut a wide berth when they’ve been in town. Some people think she clung to Alex to help get rid of or cover up the Chris Martin thing. I don’t know if that’s true, but it wouldn’t surprise me if she did do that. Girl is a user, plain and simple.

  76. 76
    tami Says:

    @newbornwings: I won’t be paying to see this movie. I may download it when it comes out, but nope, not even the talent and good looks of Alex will get me to pay money to see it. I won’t reward Kate with seats in the theater. Sorry.

  77. 77
    Minnie Says:

    That’s entertainment!

  78. 78
    Hoping for good reviews for AS Says:

    Some have commented how this movie will not do that well, others have said it will probably go straight to DVD. I hope that no matter how successful the film is, that AS is noticed and has good reviews for his career. Even though some dont care for the story line and the rape scene, he has put a great effort in his performance, and I do hope that his performance is recognized.

  79. 79
    Hans Says:

    Looking forward for this. Finally going to get some recognition.

  80. 80
    Shannon Says:

    I may be in the minority, but I don’t think the movie will bomb. Will it break box office records? No, but there is a market for movies like this. It doesn’t matter if KB is in it, or the director is a loser, or the posters/promotion sucks. People like mindless entertainment & don’t really look into wha goes on behind it. It will probably do well the first couple weeks it’s out & then die out, but I think it’s very possible it could make a decent profit.

  81. 81
    unknown Says:

    @Mike: yea like ‘Mike’ is such an uncommon name. get over yourself.

  82. 82
    Camille Says:

    You do realize that there are morons who come on here almost every thread and steal other people’s names right? It’s happened to me and several others, including Mike more than once. Perhaps you should think about that before calling out someone for trying to defend themselves because the people that usually do that try to discredit us every chance they get by posting complete garbage, some of which is totally offensive.

  83. 83
    newbornwings Says:

    If you are a fan of Alex support him. Do not let KB being in the movie penalize him. If you just don’t care for the type of movie it is say so. Do not use KB as an excuse.

    Having seen what I have of the movie I can tell you it is very different than the original. Yes it gets violent. But a lot of the things being said about it are not true. The trailer does not paint a clear picture of the good guys and the bad guys. You will miss a stellar performance of several actors if you choose not to see it.

    And waiting for the dvd does not help Alex’s career at all.. The movie will be judged on box office numbers and critics reviews at box office release not at dvd release.

    If you truly are a fan and on here you “TALK THE TALK” then be a fan and when it comes to his work “WALK THE WALK”. You won’t be helping KB because the critics will tear her a new one one in it.

    Holy shisshhhhh that movie looks amazing

    Actually Says:

    @newbornwings: I am a fan of Alex’s, but I will NOT be spending money for a ticket. And yes, it is because of Bosworth. But it has nothing to do with her as a person. She is a HORRIBLE actress. Every movie I have ever seen her in she is constantly doing something that draws me out of the experience. Like in Beyond the Sea when her mother is telling her to be careful of how she presents her face on camera and she just sits there with a confused look on her face and her mouth hanging open. (Although it was funny.) Or in this trailer when she is “crying”. I can’t take it. It is so distracting that I never get any joy from anything she is in. And I know this is a thought provoking movie, but I’m going to be too angry at her “acting” to be able to think of anything else. Sorry Alex and all the other actors I wanted to see in this, but I’m keeping my money.

  86. 86
    Jessica Says:

    I don’t understand the need to bash her simply because she’s dating Alex. Yes he’s ridiculously hot, but he’s not going to DATE ME any time soon, soo.. why should I care if he dates Kate Bosworth? She’s not the most beautiful girl in the world, but she looks WAY healthier now and if she’s dating him, um, fine, good for him. It’s not like any of you would get the chance, so why be so bitter? Oh and I’m so ready for this to be ‘rated so low it won’t be viewed’
    But side note – Alex AND James, probably two of the most delicious guys on earth right now.

    @RodLurie the movie doesn’t have a hot wife. It has kate bosworth.

    why? bcz it honestly looks decent to me,…and im a huge alex fan, all his work is great
    im going in support of him and his hard work

    i mean really, why would you make him go through all that faux-mance for nothing?! the poor thing!

    mary Says:

    Don’t expect anything from this crappy film.
    As long as True blood is on, Alexander will be on.
    His mistake is that he lets famewhores use him.
