Check This Out: Bruce Willis on the First RED Official Poster
He's got time to kill. A couple sites have been posting set visits for Robert Schwentke's RED, based on the Warren Ellis comics, starring Bruce Willis and Morgan Freeman, Helen Mirren, John Malkovich, Richard Dreyfuss. One good report can be found on Film School Rejects, where they've also debuted this first official poster for RED, being released by Summit in theaters this October. I love that they're using the exact same design from the comic book cover, it's a sleek design and I love seeing it re-done with Bruce Willis for this poster. The first trailer for RED debuted last month and I'm looking forward to seeing more at Comic-Con.
When his idyllic life is threatened by a high-tech assassin, former black-ops agent Frank Moses (as played by Bruce Willis) reassembles his old team in a last ditch effort to survive. Based on the Wildstorm comics.
Red is directed by German filmmaker Robert Schwentke, of Tattoo, The Family Jewels, Flightplan and The Time Traveler's Wife previously. The screenplay was written by brothers Erich and Jon Hoeber, of Whiteout previously as well as the upcoming Battleship and Alice. This is based on the Warren Ellis comic book series first published by WildStorm in 2003. Summit is bringing Red to theaters on October 15th later this year.

Poster says it's like a serious badass action flick. But at least based on a trailer it's an action comedy(even romance) rated PG-13. So yup I called it misleading. plus, it's even worse they're using the exact same design from the comic book cover, which has nothin to do with source material.

Nice poster, but I agree I got a totally different vibe from the trailer. I can't wait to see this!

@ PISTOL : The pistol is full automatic, those are illegal you know! Spraying casings all over the place! Stupid people thinking they need extra casings all over the place! One is even flying towards us! How is this all possible?!!?! THE IMPROBABILITY I SAY! @ ALEX : I can get what he means (i think). R E D stands for "Retired Extremely Dangerous" (if I recall, haven't followed this one) but all I get from this poster is McClane's next video game movie. So it is "leading" technically into something that isn't too true. If they have a couple other character posters with the other Elderly assassins then my comment is null 'n' void according to warranty requirements.
