Check This Out: Official Poster for Clint Eastwood's Changeling
We saw a new trailer earlier this month and now the much-anticipated Changeling starring Angelina Jolie has an official poster, thanks to Cinematical, ahead of its October 24th release. The film already won an award at the Cannes Film Festival earlier this year, and whenever it's mentioned, the word Oscar usually follows. I have to admit, this could be another big score for director Clint Eastwood, following the success of 2004's Million Dollar Baby. The film also stars John Malkovich, who is one of my personal faves, and is loosely based on the Wineville Chicken Murders in Los Angeles that took place in the late 1920's.
Changeling specifically deals with a mother whose son is kidnapped and supposedly returned to her; although she believes that, in fact, the boy is not hers at all. Despite the poster almost centering on the actress' notoriously luscious lips -- but how could you ignore them, really? -- the artwork seems to capture her character's despair and the distance of the son. Check out the first look at the poster below!
Changeling is directed by the legendary Clint Eastwood, of Mystic River, Million Dollar Baby, Flags of Our Fathers, and Letters from Iwo Jima most recently. The script was penned by comic book writer J. Michael Straczynski, who has written numerous scripts from episodes of "Jeremiah" and "Babylon 5." Universal is releasing Changeling in theaters starting on October 24th this fall.
