The Loft Trailer: Mystery Murder in a F--- Pad

By Jay Stevens, Jr. | Trade News | August 9, 2012 | Comments ()


Belgian director Erik Van Looy remakes his own original film for American audiences. The Loft is about a circle of five married men who share keys to an apartment used for each of them to bump uglies with their mistress without worry of being caught by using hotels. When the murdered body of an unknown woman is discovered there one morning, they question if someone else might know about their secret man-pad such as a jilted lover or jealous spouse. But soon they start to suspect one another of a set up.

This a red-band trailer so it's R-rated and likely NSFW.

The Loft stars Karl Urban, James Marsden, Wentworth Miller, Eric Stonestreet, Rachael Taylor, Rhona Mitra, Valerie Cruz and Isabel Lucas. Joel Silver's Dark Castle Entertainment plans to distribute the movie either December 2012 or January 2013.

Comments Are Welcome, Bigots and Trolls Are Not

    I've seen the Original - it's one of the most famous Belgian films in Belgium I think. It came on here in Germany 2 years ago or something - it was a pretty damn nice thriller. def. worth a watch

    I'm not sure, but I mayyyy have just hit my lifetime limit for watching women get brutalized for entertainment. Something just went ping! Could have been that. Could've been my back; I've been lifting a lot of heavy shit lately.

    Will check back in when I know for sure.

    If there was a film called "Sexy, Scruffy Brunette Men In Coats", I would watch it. Karl Urban would be in it, as seen here, plus Colin Farrell, Clive Owen, and David Tennant. Very little would happen, but there would be lots of slow-mo hallways and brooding.

    I've said it before and I'll say it again and I'll keep saying it: no-one scowls like Urban. Someone give this man a few more acting lessons and then put him in a noir.


    His voice alone would melt me into a puddle.


    And he's in a pool. And possibly naked a lot in this?

    Suddenly, I'm reminded of this movie with Clive Owen and Ewan McGregor.

    Four attractive men...and the fat guy from Modern Family to provide comic relief I assume.

    I feel like this has been done before. Not just as a remake. Like I've seen this plot a bunch.

    I mean there's the 1962 Boys' Night Out with James Garner, Tony Randall, Howard Duff, and Howard Morris about a group of friends that share a love nest in New York, but I feel like I've seen this actual plot.

    The characters are based on Bart De Pauw...the first film was a Belgium film called Loft that came out in 2008. The second film was from the Netherlands called Loft in 2010. This is the American version. So, technically, this is a remake of a remake.

    I hate American remakes. If you think a foreign film holds interest for a US audience, bloody dub it already. Don't spend (usually 5x as much) money to reinvent the bloody wheel.

    That gif makes me think Urban should play Orson Welles.

    ps: I hate dubbing. Give me subtitles any day.

  • athena23

    Why can't Karl Urban be in something I actually want to see, aside from Star Trek? Sigh.

  • Lemon_Poundcake

    Totally agree.

  • BWeaves

    I agree with Ranylt and MikeRoorda.

    I just looked up the spoiler ending, because I always read the last page of a novel first, and I found the plot to be really convoluted and stoooopid.

  • Guest

    I've been eyeing the original on Netflix for some time but haven't watched it. I may have finally, after 2 decades, tired of these things. Not sure what's wrong with me.

  • MikeRoorda

    I dunno. A bunch of dickholes get their noodles wet behind their wive's backs, something bad happens, and then we're supposed to sympathize with them and feel bad that someone got stabby in their boom-boom-room? If it turns out to be a revenge fantasy from the standpoint of the maligned females then maybe I'll bite, but if it's a whodunit with a boys-will-be-boys slap on the ass I'm probably going to pass.

    Wait, didn't this already happen with Christian Slater's Very Bad Things?
