First US Poster for 'Foxcatcher' with Channing Tatum is Unimaginative
An American flag in the background, a hot actor front and center in a pose that evokes no emotions. This poster sucks. First things first, let me say that I absolutely love this movie. I caught the world premiere at the Cannes Film Festival and flipped for it, ranking it as one of my Top 5 films of Cannes 2014 and praising it in a glowing review. During Cannes, the first teaser and much-more-impressive French poster for Bennett Miller's Foxcatcher debuted, and now we finally get a glimpse at Sony Classics' US marketing material and it's boring. Channing Tatum is just standing there, acting unlike his character. This film deserves better.
New official poster for Bennett Miller's Foxcatcher, debuted by People magazine. Seen full-size right here:
Foxcatcher is directed by Bennett Miller (Capote, Moneyball) and written by Dan Futterman (Capote, "In Treatment") and E. Max Frye ("Band of Brothers"). The film tells the gripping, true story of Olympic Wrestling Champion brothers Mark Schultz & Dave Schultz (Channing Tatum and Mark Ruffalo) and their relationship with eccentric John du Pont (Steve Carell), heir to the du Pont Chemical fortune, that led to a gruesome murder. Sienna Miller, Vanessa Redgrave and Anthony Michael Hall also star in the film which Sony Pictures Classics releases in the heart of awards season on November 14th this fall. Read our review.
