Check This Out: First Two Awesome Max Payne Posters!

Not only did Fox just send us the first poster for Jennifer's Body, but now we've got the first two posters for Max Payne! I was already incredibly excited for Max Payne after watching the trailer but now we've got two awesome posters to top it all off - this just gets better and better as we get closer to its release! Everything about this looks incredible so far and I'm excited to see what else they show at Comic-Con this week (see our schedule for more info). Fox has officially debuted these two posters for the film - each one is much different yet individually awesome, so check them both out below and be sure to let us know what you think. With such great marketing I just hope that it actually lives up to all of the hype!
If you haven't already seen it, I'd suggest you go watch the teaser trailer again - it kicks ass no matter how many times you watch it. A few weeks ago we were the first to debut six new promo shots from the film, now today we're the first to debut the poster! Click each one to see them full-size.
Max Payne is directed by Irish filmmaker John Moore, of Behind Enemy Lines, Flight of the Phoenix, and The Omen previously, with a screenplay written by first-time writer Beau Thorne. The film is based on the popular Max Payne series of third-person-shooter video games that first arrived in 2001. Fox is debuting Max Payne in theaters on October 17th just before Halloween. I'll be there!

I LOVE the one on the left - it looks a whole lot like the video game ;-). The one on the right is just awesome!!!

I like the first. Very reminiscent of the game art style. The second one just looks like it's trying too hard.
Chris on Jul 23, 2008
I agree with Chris, it is the same art style as the cover art from the 1st game

Sweet. Now I wanna play the game, ok. I will.

The second is a nice poster and all, but it doesn't say Max Payne to me. It looks more like an ad for the Exorcist or something. Some Halloween movie maybe. I hope they use the poster on the left in theaters otherwise the general public might get way confused.

"be sure to let us know what you think". OK, here goes: Alex, you're a massive tool.

I prefer the Banksee* one, as I've decided to call it. *- no relation to Bansky.

The one on the left looks better. The one on the right doesn't look quite right. His whole posture and expression in relation to that angel thing just looks odd. I agree with Chris. However, I do love the amount of detail in the background for that 2nd poster.

I don't like the second poster. Is it exorcist?
Diego on Jul 24, 2008
sigh... I hope the indie version comes out before the FOX one.... http://www.payneandredemption.com/blog/

I like the first one better, though it is mopre generic. The second one is for the people that have played the game. For others it is confusing and you can't read the title that good. it is also missing the release date. I like the slanted angle on the first and the city in the back. Very good for Fox.
