Check This Out: First Quad Poster for Guy Ritchie's RocknRolla

Warner Brothers has debuted the first quad-sized teaser poster for Guy Ritchie's RocknRolla, the British filmmaker's latest gangster extravaganza. Even if you're not a Ritchie fan and even if you really didn't like the trailer, you've got to admit that the imagery for this movie is pretty freakin' sweet. Of course it is Ritchie's unique stylized looks, but I'll never get sick of it, especially with Gerard Butler or Jeremy Piven's face on the poster instead of Brad Pitt or Jason Statham. We saw an extended trailer at Comic-Con over the weekend and it kicked as much ass as the first trailer, so I'll admit I'm still excited. But for the rest of you that aren't yet convinced, well, this poster isn't going to change your mind but at least it's cool to look at!
Am I the only one who is really looking forward to RocknRolla? What happened to Ritchie's reputation? Did he forget how to make films over the seven years since Snatch or is there some other problem?
RocknRolla is both written and directed by British filmmaker Guy Ritchie, of Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels, Snatch, and Revolver previously. Unlike his previously films, this one has been under a studio, Warner Brothers, from the very start. RocknRolla hit theaters everywhere on October 31st.

Snatch, Revolver, and Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels... all three of those movies were great. Cant wait to see all the symbolism and plot twists for this movie, so excited 😀

"What happened to Ritchie's reputation? Did he forget how to make films over the seven years since Snatch?" - Judging by Swept Away and Revolver; yes. Two of the worst films in living memory.

Urgh, no. Ugly colour scheme, awful lettering and a (sort of) attempt at Banksy-style stencil-art for the main figure. Not good at all.

Really bad. You are hyping this up WAY to much Alex. I dont think Ritchie is a bad director, but he set the bar so high for himself in this field, he is really doing the same thing again and again. I think Holmes will be good for him to do, a slightly different genre.
