Avert Your Eyes: It's the Poster for John Luessenhop's Takers
I pride myself on my honesty. With that in mind, let me say, this poster for Screen Gems' new film Takers is horrendous. I'm not sure which is worse: Paul Walker's floating head, his 'is-that-baby-breakdancing?!' expression, Hayden Christensen's smug, 'I-ruined-Star Wars' pose, or the fact that Idris Elba is going to be completely wasted in this film. The film revolves around a group of unstoppable bank robbers who just can't- be- caught. But when they attempt to pull off one- last- job-, the crew finds that hardened detective Matt Dillon is hell-bent on solving the robberies once and for all. Check this out (via ComingSoon) below.
I'm glad that gun there is positioned perfectly for the viewer to grab it. 'Cause if I have to look at this thing for much longer, I'm reaching into that Photoshop crime scene and there's going to be two-dimensional hell to pay. This is the first poster we've seen for Takers, but I expect we'll be seeing a trailer and plenty more in the next few months, considering it's set to hit very early next year. Takers is directed by John Luessenhop, of only the prison drama Lockdown previously. With its weird amalgamation of both music and film stars (spelled out nicely for you there at the top of the poster), Takers is set for release on February 19th, 2010.
