Check This Out: First Poster for Sony's The International
by Alex Billington

For a film that doesn't exactly have a lot of positive buzz, Sony is really trying to push The International very early in the game. Officially, the film doesn't hit theaters until February 13th, which means normally we wouldn't see a trailer until January and they'd do some promotion throughout February, but we've already got two trailers and now a full poster. Unfortunately this poster is rather bland, but maybe that's better for this under-the-radar action film. Then again, they don't have a lot of imagery to work with anyway, but this still looks like a half-assed effort at finishing a poster and trying to make it look good.
I'm honestly quite confused - what the heck happened to this movie? Tom Tykwer is a fantastic director and Clive Owen is a badass action star, but for some odd reason, no one seems to be interested in The International? Where did they go wrong? Or better yet, why does everyone think this looks so bad?
The International centers on an obsessive Interpol agent (Clive Owen) who spearheads an investigation into one of the world's most high-profile and powerful banking institutions in an attempt to expose them for worldwide arms brokering, corruption and murder. Naomi Watts will play a Manhattan assistant district attorney who partners with the agent to take down the bank.
The International is directed by German filmmaker Tom Tykwer, of Run, Lola, Run and Perfume: The Story of a Murderer previously. The original script was penned by first-time screenwriter Eric Singer. Sony Pictures is releasing The International in theaters everywhere on February 13th, 2009.

"...why does everyone think this looks so bad?" Why do YOU think EVERYBODY thinks that? Look rather decent to me...also the teaser.

That is really shoddy. I love Naomi Watts so I liked this from the get-go but this poster HAS to be a teaser.

This poster is good for a teaser. It's referring to the scene in the film shot in the gugenheim museum in new york. Only bad thin is that Clive Owen and Naomi Watts look bit weird there.

reminds me of that penn-kidman movie just too generic
