Check This Out: Official US Poster for Ben Affleck's The Town
I've been waiting to see the poster for Ben Affleck's The Town because I'm very excited for the movie and I want a great poster to go along with it. Unfortunately this official US poster isn't that good, at all. Debuted on Apple (via In Contention) is the official poster for The Town that is a little too focused on the creepy nun mask-wearing criminals than the actual cast of the movie. I'm glad there aren't big floating heads, but this is just odd. Who wants nuns with guns on their wall? Don't answer, but seriously, couldn't they have designed something a bit more Oscar caliber? Maybe it's just me, but I'm not really digging this poster. Check it out!
As he plans his next job, a longtime thief tries to balance his feelings for a bank manager connected to one of his earlier heists, as well as the FBI agent trying to bring his crew down. Based on Chuck Hogan's book.
The Town is both written and directed by Boston native actor-turned-filmmaker Ben Affleck, who made his feature directorial debut with the drama Gone Baby Gone a few years back. Affleck co-wrote the screenplay with Peter Craig (Waterbug) and Sheldon Turner (Up in the Air). It's based on Chuck Hogan's novel Prince of Thieves first published in 04. Warner Bros will be bringing The Town to theaters this September 17th.

It's the attack of the chins that's getting my attention. Like the poster though, quite funny and serious at the same time.

The Nuns are actually some of the main characters..They also wear some skull masks and police uniforms in other bank jobs..It's all in the trailer..It looks like a great crime drama..I want this poster though
