Unimpressive Poster for Ridley Scott's Body of Lies
The first poster for Ridley Scott's Body of Lies has just debuted courtesy of Cinematical. I'm featuring this because I'm actually looking forward to the film quite a bit, but this poster is one of the worst I've seen recently. I'm probably being much too harsh on it, but it just looks terrible when I had high hopes for it. It's nothing more than a standard poster with oddly positioned actors that's much too dark and lacks any of the espionage or military aspects of the film. Why oh why did it have to be this poster that turned out terrible?! You're more than welcome to take a look at it below and chime in with your own thoughts as well. And be sure to watch the trailer if you haven't seen it yet, as that actually looks much better than this.
Thanks again to Cinematical for debuting this. I'm glad we were able to check it out, but it's a big let down. It's hard to explain why I don't even like it, but it really is a bad poster for what looks like a great movie.
Body of Lies is directed by legendary filmmaker Ridley Scott, of everything from Alien to Blade Runner to Gladiator to Black Hawk Down to Kingdom of Heaven American Gangster. The script was written by Oscar-winning screenwriter William Monahan, of Kingdom of Heaven and The Departed, and is based off of the book of the same name written by David Ignatius. Warner Brothers will release Body of Lies in theaters everywhere on October 10th this fall. Be sure to watch the trailer!
