No critics' screenigs for what sounds like the worst Idea for a Hollywood remake ever(in the words of an article I read today: "Nicolas Cage playing a virgin??"), Neil LaBute's The Wicker Man. Over here, it's being released tomorrow, so at this time there are still no reviews available, but to me this looks like it may be a Razzie contender...

Personally, I think everyone involved in this remake should be tied inside a wicker man and burned alive as a punishment.

It's far too early to judge, yet (there are only 7 reviews on Rotten Tomatoes, as I am writing this, with 2 positive and 5 negative, with an average rating of 2.6), but I did find this review on Rotten Tomatoes, that calls this Wicker Man remake "the kind of film for which Golden Raspberries were invented"...

I have not seen it yet, but my guess is this movie might be judged "acceptable" by someone who has never seen the original, so maybe not deserving of Razzie attention after all(for my part, I would rather it deserved punishment as a stand-alone movie as well, rather than just as a remake. That way, all involved in the making of this film could get what they deserve and maybe Hollywood will think twice about giving cult classics the blockbuster treatment!). Has anyone in this forum seen it yet?
