Check This Out: Final Poster for Howard McCain's Outlander

Sadly, Outlander is one of the movies we forgot about over the last few months, despite all the early buzz it nurtured last year. IGN has come to the rescue today with the final poster for the film, which stars James Caviezel as well as Ron Perlman, John Hurt, and Sophia Myles. For those who forgot, Outlander is an indie sci-fi movie about an alien who crash lands on Earth during the time of the Vikings and must fuse with them to help fight off an alien creature that also landed on Earth. I'm actually very interested in checking this out, despite hearing that it wasn't that amazing. And as for the poster, well, it's just Caviezel face.

If you haven't seen it yet, there's a trailer for this that we ran last July. Otherwise, take a look at this poster and squint to try and find the other details hidden in it (besides Caviezel's face). Thoughts?

Outlander Poster

During the reign of the Vikings, Kainan (James Caviezel), a man from a far-off world, crash lands on Earth, bringing with him an alien predator known as the Moorwen. Though both man and monster are seeking revenge for violence committed against them, Kainan leads the alliance to kill the Moorwen by fusing his advanced technology with the Viking's Iron Age weaponry.

Outlander is directed and co-written by Howard McCain, of only The Unspeakable previously. Dirk Blackman also helped write the script with McCain. The film first premiered at the Cannes Film Market back in 2008, where it was picked up by The Weinstein Company, who has a track record of burying good indie gems like this. Outlander will finally hit very limited theaters on January 23rd this year.
