First New Poster for James McTeigue's 'The Raven' Spills Onto the Web
A gorgeous new poster for James McTeigue's new thriller The Raven has just hit the web in anticipation of their upcoming panel for the film on Friday at Comic-Con. We've seen a first look photo of John Cusack, who stars as Edgar Allen Poe in this, but this is a fantastic first poster and great early look at some of the imagery/atmosphere we might get with this. The Playlist was the place we first found this poster, and it's something you must see, even though it doesn't have too much (and Cusack isn't even on it). But I still love the imagery and the design, it's a great poster for a movie I'm already excited for. Hope we see a trailer soon!
The Raven is inspired by the famous Edgar Allen Poe poem. McTeigue explained to us last year that it's "an amalgamation of Poe's stories crossed with Se7en. It's about a serial killer loose in 1849 Baltimore." As for the actual plot, he stated that "at each murder that he does, the killer leaves a clue, and basically Poe is set against the clock to find someone before they die." The screenplay is by Ben Livingston and Hannah Shakespeare. Relativity and Rogue Pictures are distributing and have set a release date on March 9th, 2012 next year for The Raven, so we've got something to look forward to at least! Stay tuned. Look good?
