Guilt & Faces Abound in New Poster for Fox Searchlight's 'The East'
After making a splash premiering at the 2013 Sundance Film Festival, the Fox Searchlight release of The East is coming this summer. Director Zal Batmanglij (of the Sundance selected film Sound of My Voice previously) steps up to the mainstream level with this thriller about an environmental protest group looking to expose the seedy underbelly of corporations and the people behind them. Brit Marling stars in the film as an undercover agent trying to infiltrate the group led by Alexander Skarsgard and strong influence by Ellen Page. All of them appear on this new poster for the film, and it's a thriller you won't want to miss.
In The East, Sarah Moss (Brit Marling) is a brilliant operative for an elite private intelligence firm whose top objective is to ruthlessly protect the interests of their A-list corporate clientele. She is assigned to go undercover to infiltrate an anarchist collective known for executing covert attacks upon major corporations. Living amongst them in an effort to get closer to their members, Sarah finds herself unexpectedly torn between two worlds. The East is the second feature from up-and-coming filmmaker Zal Batmanglij (of Sound of My Voice previously), who co-wrote the script with Brit Marling. This premiered at the 2012 Sundance Film Festival and is being released by Fox Searchlight this summer on May 31st. Interested?
