Wahoo more trailers to feast your eyes on. One of the latest trailers to come out this past week or so (not keeping track) is actually a remake of movie from 2005, done by the same director and now in English for the lazy shits that don’t want to bother reading subtitles. So 13 Tzameti got remade to suit the tastes of American audiences and with a more friendly faced cast in 13. Last is a trailer entitled Knuckle. It’s about bare knuckle boxing, so that pretty bad ass.
If you haven’t read my Movie of the Day post about 13 Tzameti, please read it here. Basically the movie is just an English (from what I have seen from the trailer) sort of shot for shot remake of the movie, but the nice thing is that they got the original director to do this. Just replace the previous cast with action stars and done. Still, I am interested in seeing the movie if they kept the tone of the 2005 film.
This is how you settle disputes, like Irish, sweaty gypsies. Knuckle is a documentary about the trails and tribulations of two rival clans known as Travelers. Essentially these two clans have a mutual hatred of one another and settle disputes by pitting different men into bare knuckled boxing matched for honor and money. Director Ian Palmer has been granted a glimpse into the lives of these closed off people and has done so for over 10 years. Aside from the sweaty boxing, this look fascinating, like glimpsing into an unknown society. I haven’t seen it on VOD, but I will check it out once I get the chance.
