Death at a Funeral remake trailer online

Chris Rock and Martin Lawrence update the Britcom


The trailer for the Chris Rock-starring Death at a Funeral has hit the web.

The original, directed by Frank Oz, followed a farcical string of problems occuring during a funeral and was a modest success despite so-so reviews.

Although it was only released three years ago, Death is getting the remake treatment, and this new trailer is not without a few laughs - though they appear to be the exact same laughs as in the original, with a few added 'urbanisms', you know, because it's in America now, y'all...

The new version is directed by Neil LaBute, and has a pretty decent cast (Tracy Morgan, Zoe Saldana, James Marsden). It also stars Martin Lawrence.

Peter Dinklage is reprising his role from the original as a dwarf who threatens to cause a major upset at the sombre occasion.

Fingers crossed that this will be an improvement on LaBute's last stab at a remake: he directed Nic Cage in The Wicker Man update.

      Nah, this looks pretty awful. I was no big fan of the original but at least it had Alan Tudyk.

      The original was original, this is just a refried US version with no flavour.

      I know this sounds awful, but I actually laughed during this trailer quite a bit. I wouldn't mind watching this for some brain-numbing, unimportant drivel, lol.

      I actually want to see this too, I don't care its a remake - not like they're remaking a classic or anything... Funny that its the same actor playing the "other man" but

      I did laugh at the trailer but mainly because it reminded me about what was funny about the original. Wouldn't go out of my way to see it but maybe if it came on TV...
