Check This Out: John Wells' 'The Company Men' Official Poster
I had nearly forgotten about this film until this wonderful poster arrived today. Our friends at Cinematical have unveiled the official "one-sheet" for John Wells' The Company Men, the bleak indie drama starring Ben Affleck, Chris Cooper and Tommy Lee Jones as three execs who lose their jobs at a major manufacturing company and must deal with the harsh economic recession. We featured a trailer for the film back in July, so you already know what to expect, but I think this is a great poster to go along with it. I love the imagery and symbolism and I think it's just a refreshingly unique design for an indie drama these days. View it below!
It centers on a year in the life of three men (Affleck, Jones, Cooper) trying to survive a round of corporate downsizing at a major company - and how that affects them, their families, and their local communities.
The Company Men is both written & directed by Emmy-award winning filmmaker John Wells, who's making his feature directorial debut after working on numerous TV shows like "ER" and "The West Wing". This is an original story crafted by Wells. It first premiered at the Sundance Film Festival earlier this year and is being distributed by The Weinstein Company. The Company Men arrives in limited theaters this October 22nd.
