Check This Out: Badass Poster for James Purefoy's Ironclad

"Blood. Will. Run." Hell. Yes. Empire has debuted the first poster for Ironclad starring James Purefoy and it's pure badass. I definitely don't think this is an MPAA approved poster because there's no way they'd allow that much blood on a sword. It would get banned if this was put out in the US! But that's why I freakin' love this poster. We featured a first look photo from Ironclad a couple months back but haven't seen a trailer yet. The film is described as a "medieval Seven Samurai" about a determined group of Knights Templar who defend Rochester Castle against the tyrannical King John in the 13th century. Anyway, check out the poster!

In addition to Purefoy, Ironclad also stars Paul Giamatti, Brian Cox, Robert Carlyle, William Moseley, Jason Flemyng, Bob Hoskins, Pete Postlethwaite & Kate Mara. Apparently in the film Giamatti is "in pure Shoot 'Em Up snarling-villain mode, facing off against the noble and true James Purefoy." And although it has a low budget, Empire says that it promises to be "a gritty and compelling British action flick." I certainly hope so! There are a lot of sword and sandal movies coming up this year, and there will of course be some duds, but I'm hoping this isn't one of them. It just seems way too frickin' cool to suck! What do you guys think?
