Check These Out: Character Posters for Scott Stewart's Legion
I wasn't initially planning on featuring these posters today at first glance, but after noticing that they all have a snippet of a longer, biblical quote on them, I thought why the hell not? Although I'm not particularly excited for Scott Stewart's Legion, starring Paul Bettany as the Archangel Michael, I do admire all of this marketing, as this imagery is badass and would otherwise sell me if it weren't for the trailer looking pretty bad. All six of these character posters come from JoBlo. Together they say: "So it will be at the end of the age the angels will come forth to take out the wicked and throw them into the furnace of fire." Awesome.
Having lost faith in the human race, a legion of angels descend to Earth to bring about the Apocalypse. Humanity's only hope lies in a group of strangers trapped in a diner and the Archangel Michael himself.
Legion is directed by first-time feature filmmaker Scott Stewart, a former visual effects artist who worked on films like Sin City, Pirates of the Caribbean, and Iron Man. The screenplay was co-written by Stewart and former editor Peter Schink with the short Gotham Cafe being his only past writing credit. Sony Pictures will be bringing Legion to theaters everywhere starting on January 22nd, 2010 early next year. Excited?
