Awesome Vintage 'Gambit' Poster with Colin Firth & Cameron Diaz
Now this is something refreshing for a poster, even if it is a throwback to decades ago. Over in the United Kingdom, the Coen Brothers scripted remake of the 1966 caper flick Gambit from director Michael Hoffman (The Last Station) arrives in just over a week, right before Thanksgiving. Audiences in the United States will be waiting until early next year to see the heist comedy starring Colin Firth, Cameron Diaz and Alan Rickman, but in the meantime, you can check out this awesome throwback poster that takes cues from the decade of the film being remade. It looks like an old school James Bond poster. Look below!
Here's the vintage poster for Michael Hoffman's remake of Gambit from Sky Movies:
In Gambit, Private art curator Harry Deane (Colin Firth) devises a finely-crafted scheme to con England's richest man and avid art collector, Lionel Shabandar, (Alan Rickman) into purchasing a fake Monet painting. In order to bait his buyer, he recruits a Texas rodeo queen (Cameron Diaz) to cross the pond and pose as a woman whose grandfather liberated the painting at the end of WWII. Michael Hoffman (The Last Station) directs and The Coen Brothers wrote the film (a remake of the 1966 film starring Michael Caine) which hits UK theaters on November 21st this year, and hits US theaters sometime early in 2013. Well?
