Warner Brothers has debuted the first quad-sized teaser poster for Guy Ritchie's RocknRolla, the British filmmaker's latest gangster extravaganza. Even if you're not a Ritchie fan and even if you really didn't like the trailer, you've got to admit that the imagery for this movie is pretty freakin' sweet. Of course it is Ritchie's unique stylized looks, but I'll never get sick of it, especially with Gerard Butler or Jeremy Piven's face on the poster instead of Brad Pitt or Jason Statham. We saw an extended trailer at Comic-Con over the weekend and it kicked as much ass as the first trailer, so I'll admit I'm still excited. But for the rest of you that aren't yet convinced, well, this poster isn't going to change your mind but at least it's cool to look at!
Am I the only one who is really looking forward to RocknRolla? What happened to Ritchie's reputation? Did he forget how to make films over the seven years since Snatch or is there some other problem?
RocknRolla is both written and directed by British filmmaker Guy Ritchie, of Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels, Snatch, and Revolver previously. Unlike his previously films, this one has been under a studio, Warner Brothers, from the very start. RocknRolla hit theaters everywhere on October 31st.
