Great UK Quad Poster for Samuel Maoz's Tank Film 'Lebanon'
Everyone knows I love a good movie poster and today we have another beautiful one to feature. Empire has debuted the official UK quad poster for Lebanon, the film set entirely inside of a tank (the one pictured) that premiered at the Toronto Film Festival last year (we wrote about it last September). I never got to see the film but I am still very much looking forward to seeing it whenever it shows up at another film festival. I love the poster because of the beautiful sunflower / tank dynamic. It's simple and it's eye-catching and very easy to look at. I just wish that this wasn't a beautiful poster only for the UK release. So check it out below!
Lebanon, both written and directed by Israeli filmmaker Samuel Maoz, is about a lone tank and a platoon of paratroopers that are dispatched to search a hostile town during the Lebanon War in 1982 (the same war seen in Beaufort and Waltz With Bashir). The script was based solely on Maoz's personal experiences in the war. As described by TIFF: "Lebanon is a sensual film in the dictionary sense of the word. The majority of the action takes place inside the tank, and a hot, sweaty, rusted-out place it is, rank with the odours of men and fear." We'll let you know when Sony Pictures Classics sets a US release date for Lebanon. Interested?
