I still can't get my head round that McQueen is doing a remake of this cozy British crime show, which as one of the first things I watched after moving to the UK. I wished they'd kept the 80s hair. At least it will have to be better than Shame, which was the most ludicrous film of 2011.
After Shame, McQueen is not a filmmaker whose work I'm terribly interested in keeping up with, and this trailer has too much of a "sisters are doin' it for themselves," long-suffering women cleaning up the messes of their feckless husbands vibe. Like we're still stuck in that '80s-'90s frame of strong female characters in action movies being women who act like men in action movies. But it's got Daniel Kaluuya and Brian Tyree Henry in it, so I'll happily watch it when it shows up on FX in a couple of years.

Hopefully this will be the first McQueen movie that isn't such an grueling endurance test I could imagine sitting through it a second time. Great filmmaker, but damn, are his movies hard to sit through. A mainstream, pulpy thriller from him entices me greatly.
