The brand-new trailer for Hostel 2, which will premiere tonight on MTV before landing a home in front of all the Saw 3 prints, will be entirely in German. Yes, a Prague-shot film that stars mostly Americans will have its trailer debut in the German language -- for no other reason than that German is "more guttural and harsh," says Palen. Weird.
Eli Roth's Hostel 2 hits theaters next January, and I'll be sure to post a trailer link in this spot (trailer link) after its MTV debut has passed and the trailer gets comfy in Quicktime. But what's your take on this rather strange little move? I mean, LG had trouble selling the French-speaking High Tension to the American masses, so why go the foreign language route when you don't have to?
Ah well, it's not like Hostel 2 is being sold on its dialogue, right?
