Check This Out: Badass French Transporter 3 Poster

I don't exactly know why we're excited to bring you this poster for Transporter 3, but something about it makes us smile. Courtesy of filmsactu.com, we've got our first look at the Transporter 3 poster and it's exactly what we expected - a close-up of Jason Statham in black and white and that flaming number 3. There's not much more to add except to question why Lionsgate hasn't actually started marketing the film and (supposedly) is relying 100% on the French marketing. Even the badass trailer we ran in June was a French trailer. It's supposed to be out at Thanksgiving, are they ever going to market it? Maybe it doesn't matter, because this actually looks good, the French seem to know what they're doing. Enjoy!
Note: When discussing anything involving the man known as Jason Statham, the term "badass" must be used to describe anything related to or featuring said man, including posters or related paraphernalia.
Transporter 3 is directed by French filmmaker Olivier Megaton, of Exit, The Red Siren, and Angie previously, with a script penned by both Robert Mark Kamen and Luc Besson, the same two who also wrote the first and second Transporter. Lionsgate will be releasing Transporter 3 on November 26th.

Looks nice, but somehow it feels like his head isn't attached to his body. Could just be the pose or maybe bad photoshop work...

If we saw more of his neck that would help allude to him charging to the left of the screen. Also - Is wearing some complicated sick looking watch, or do you think that corresponds to the plot? Contrasts in any picture are going to make it badass. So to clarify its now UBER-Badass !

I'm pretty sure (although not positive) that the watch is some kind of bomb that's going to kill him if he doesn't do what some terrorist wants before some clock runs out and some virus does something something something. That being said, I love Transporter movies for their sheer ridiculousness. I can't wait!

Cool! It does remind me of the opening sequence of "Lethal Weapon 3" (1992) with the flaming '3'!

Sweet but it has its problems.

nice poster but i think the 3 ruins the flow of it just my opinion. The first one was alright nothing special and the 2nd one was ridicilous and not in a good way (sorry Louis Leterrier) i hope this one turns out to be the better of them.

I like how is suit jacket has three buttons, get it! OMFG that is sheer genius! DO YOU GET IT! AAARRRGGGHHH Jason Statham should be the only white man to be allowed to do karate. Period. .

The poster if fine.. too much critical Bullsh@t from above. Showing the neck would stuff the shot "&" most suits have 3 buttons on a sleeve. Statham Rocks!!!
