The Nicolas Winding Refn produced remake of Pusher gets its first trailer and it doesn’t look all that interesting. I’m in the minority having not seen the original Pusher, but this version just looks like another boring drug trafficking film, but this time a little more stylized. It doesn’t really echo Refn’s approach to Drive; it instead looks like a flashy copy that’s trying a little too hard.
Everyone that has seen the original is saying that there’s no need for a remake and I’m going to take their word on it. Pusher (2012) stars Agyness Deyn, Richard Coyle, Bronson Webb and Paul Kaye.
The Luis Prieto directed film will make its way to the US sometime later this year.
