Sundance First Look: Poster and Photos from Endgame
by Alex Billington
December 17, 2008
In advance of its Sundance Film Festival debut, we have been exclusively provided with a batch of photos and the poster for a film called Endgame. Directed by Pete Travis (of Vantage Point), Endgame stars William Hurt, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Jonny Lee Miller, and one of our favorite actors, Mark Strong. The film is a political thriller about a businessman that initiates covert discussions between the African National Congress and white intellectuals to try and find a peaceful solution to the Apartheid regime in South Africa. Check out these first photos and the poster below before the film premieres at Sundance in January.

Endgame is directed by Pete Travis, of Vantage Point and the "Henry VIII" TV series previously. The screenplay was written by Paula Milne, of Mad Love, Hollow Reed, and I Dreamed of Africa previously. Endgame will debut in the Premieres category at the Sundance Film Festival in January. The film doesn't yet have a distributor, although I imagine it will pick one up fairly quickly at Sundance. Not only am I big fan of Chiwetel Ejiofor, but I'm also a huge fan of Mark Strong, so I must say that this definitely has my attention thanks to those two. Stay tuned for our review of Endgame and much more from Sundance!
