THIS WEEK IN POSTERS – This Week in Posters & Stills is our weekly round-up (and critique) of all the posters, publicity stills, one-sheets, and set photos that hit in the previous week, a nice little early preview of what’s to come in the movie world. Posted every Wednesday, or as close as we can get. (Like Thursday, which is when we usually get to it).
OLDBOY: Here’s the first of a few new stills from Spike Lee’s Oldboy remake, courtesy of FilmDistrict. As much as I generally dislike Spike Lee, this shot makes me want to give him all of the moneys. Especially if Samuel Jackson plays some kind of smart-mouthed Simon Phoenix. Actually, speaking of Demolition Man, I wouldn’t be surprised if Denis Leary showed up in this to give Spike Lee’s requisite “why I hate all the ethnic groups” speech. I know that has nothing to do with Oldboy, but I have faith that Spike can find a way to work it in.
DOM HEMINGWAY: Well, what can we say about this Dom Hemingway poster that we haven’t already said?
I’ll simply say: I don’t know if a country can own a facial expression, but if so, that about as close to a “British” face as I’ve ever seen.
“Oy, an da ‘ole lot a yous kin fock roight off,” he sneered Britishly.
This intimate documentary follows the 12-year journey of two African-American families pursuing the promise of opportunity through the education of their sons.
