Familiar First Poster for Liam Neeson's Action Thriller 'Unknown'
We've already been given a promising action-packed trailer for Liam Neeson's thriller Unknown which aims to repeat the success of Taken with an early 2011 release. Now it looks like Warner Bros. is trying even harder to reel in the surprisingly large box office turnout from Neeson's ass-kicking venture with the first official poster for Unknown. Though Neeson does look fairly bad-ass, the inclusion of January Jones and Diane Kruger feels like a last minute addition to make the poster slightly different from either of these two posters for Taken. But the trailer looks good, and having read the script I can tell you there's plenty of action on the way.
Here's the first official poster for Unknown courtesy of ComingSoon:
Unknown, originally called Unknown White Male, is directed by up-and-coming Spanish filmmaker Jaume Collet-Serra, who got his start making music videos and TV commercials first and then went on to direct the House of Wax remake in '05 and Orphan. The screenplay was co-written by Oliver Butcher (Dr. Jekyll and Ms. Hyde) and Stephen Cornwell (Killing Streets, Marshal Law). This was based Didier Van Cauwelaert's book of the same name, first published in France. This was filmed mostly in and around Berlin, Germany last winter. Warner Bros is bringing Unknown to theaters starting on February 18th, 2011 early next year.
