Check This Out: New Teaser Poster for The Crazies Remake
Overture has debuted the second teaser poster for Breck Eisner's remake of The Crazies that stars Timothy Olyphant, Radha Mitchell, Danielle Panabaker, Joe Anderson, Joe Reegan, and a whole town full of crazies. The poster doesn't feature any faces and is a follow-up to the first teaser from February. Kind of reminds me of the first teaser poster for The Invasion - I just hope this turns out much better than that movie (which was also coincidentally kind of a remake). It's a damn cool design and I like the look of it, I just want to see a trailer or more photos first, especially since this doesn't live up to craziness the original poster anyway.
The story revolves around the inhabitants of a small Iowa town who are suddenly beset by death and insanity after a plane crash lets loose a mysterious secret biological weapon into the water supply.
The Crazies is directed by Breck Eisner, of Thoughtcrimes and Sahara previously. The screenplay was written by Scott Kosar (The Machinist, The Amityville Horror) and Ray Wright (Pulse, Case 39). This is a remake of George Romero's 1973 film of the same name. Overture Films will be bringing it to theaters on February 26th, 2010 next year. You can follow the official Twitter for the film for more updates on this.

I'm down with this (though the trailer will better solidify). Bring on the violence. And for christ's sake, don't let up.

Quite funny: First link in the related articles also shows a much older first teaser poster. Like, the REAL first teaser poster. 😉 So this one's just the SECOND teaser poster. Just wanted to mention it...

I saw the test screening and THE CRAZIES rocked! The whole audience was going wild over it. We were told that the sound, SFX, and a "few other things" still needed to be done, but it looked near perfect. I'd definitely give it a 4 out of 5. It's that "few other things" that I'm concerned about. They have a film that looks and sounds complete, the far and away best Horror Thriller movie of 2009 hands down. So I'm hoping those "other things" don't include some second unit adding extra crap-it-up teeny-characters like the jerk jock, the snobby cheerleader, the really nice guy who calls them friend, the girl they all pick on (except nice guy), and the Goth chick who inexplicably hangs out with them all. If they can just resist the temptation to hack millions of potential box office from their movie, by following time-honored but reality debunked, Hollywood Horror tropes, they could have a great movie on their hands. I mean REALLY great like you get with INDIE Horror Thriller!
