New International Babylon A.D. Poster
We were the first ones to debut the teaser poster for Babylon A.D. last year, and now we've got our hands on the brand new international poster. While I don't think this is as eye-catching as the last one, it is pretty damn snazzy and I like the darker, futuristic look of it. It kind of reminds me of Blade Runner just a bit, but who knows if that's really what the movie will feel like. If you've been following our updates on it, apparently the film was taken out of director Mathieu Kassovitz's hands and edited by Fox. Right now we're trying not to think about that and enjoy the poster on its own while waiting for this to finally hit theaters.
Thanks to the Vin Diesel Gallery for sending us the poster! Check it out below.
In the Mathieu Kassovitz-directed film, a veteran-turned-mercenary (Vin Diesel) agrees to escort a woman from Russia to Germany, not realizing that she's the host for an organism that a cult wants to harvest into a genetically-modified Messiah. Opening in North America on August 29, the movie co-stars Gérard Depardieu, Michelle Yeoh, Charlotte Rampling, Mark Strong, Radek Bruna, Melanie Thierry and Lambert Wilson.
Babylon A.D. is directed by French filmmaker Mathieu Kassovitz, who also directed 2003's Gothika and a French film from 2000 titled The Crimson Rivers as well as a few other French flicks. Babylon A.D. currently arrives in theaters on August 29th later this year.
