Some pretty great movie posters have hit the web this week as studios gear up their spring marketing push.
First up is the latest poster for the upcoming thrill Hanna. Starring Saoirse Ronan, Eric Bana and Cate Blanchett, the movie will be director Joe Wright‘s first foray into a dark film. Known better for his period pieces Pride and Prejudice and Atonement, Wright appears to have crafted a interesting story about a 16-year old assassin and a relentless CIA officer who is somehow connected to the young killer. Look for Hanna in theaters April 8.
On to Arthur – the mildly anticipated Russel Brand film. Brand’s last film, Get Him to the Greek, established him as a capable, if eccentric, leading man. Arthur appears to be in the same vein: a cheeky film, this time about love and money. Arthur Bach (Brand) is a billionaire playboy who falls in love with a girl his family doesn’t like. Now his inheritance is as risk – so what’s a guy to do?! Arthur arrives in theaters April 8; counter-programming to the aforementioned Hanna.
Next is the first poster for Robert Redford‘s The Conspirator. An excellent cast includes: James McAvoy, Robin Wright, Justin Long, Alexis Bledel, Kevin Kline, Evan Rachel Wood and Tom Wilkinson. The movie follows the story of Mary Surrat (Wright) who stands accused as a co-conspirator in the assassination of Abraham Lincoln. A reluctant attorney (McAvoy) takes the case to defend Surrat, as the nations anger reaches a fever pitch. The Conspirator hits theaters April 15.
Finally we reach One Day: a rom-com from up and coming director Lone Scherfig (An Education). Based on the David Nicholls’ novel of the same name, One Day is about Emma (Anne Hathaway) and Dexter (Jim Sturgess) who get together once a year to see how the other is doing. Sometimes they’re together, and sometimes they’re not. Having not read the Nicholls’ book, but knowing a thing or two about rom-coms, I would guess they end up together. Just a hunch! Look for One Day in theaters July 8.
