Whatever happened to discreetly getting a hotel room? Or putting a pool table, a big screen TV and a jukebox in your basement, calling it a mancave and inviting your friends over? For the dudes in "Loft," an American remake of a 2008 Belgian film, cheating on their wives requires a serious commitment (unlike their marriages, we suppose), which includes pooling their resources into what one character accurately calls a "fuckpad."

Whatever happened to discreetly getting a hotel room? Or putting a pool table, a big screen TV and a jukebox in your basement, calling it a mancave and inviting your friends over? For the dudes in "Loft," an American remake of a 2008 Belgian film, cheating on their wives requires a serious commitment (unlike their marriages, we suppose), which includes pooling their resources into what one character accurately calls a "fuckpad."

Starring an interesting cast including Karl Urban (cool), Matthias Schoenaerts (who starred in the original and rules), James Marsden (meh), Eric Stonestreet (huh?) and Wentworth Miller (oh yeah), the thriller finds the dudes' good times extramarital affairs ruined when a dead body is found in their fancy pants loft, with some kind of clue left in Latin in blood. Yeah, it's one of those movies. Overall, this looks pretty much ready made for a VOD premiere, with director Erik Van Loy (who helmed the original) not really making a case for why we should care. But this trailer does have boobs in it we guess, so there's that.

Warner Bros. shingle Dark Castle acquired the film this summer, but no word yet on when it might hit theaters. But this early taste isn't that inspiring. Check it out below along with a handful of images form the film.
