We were the first ones to debut the teaser poster for Babylon A.D. last year, and now we've got our hands on the brand new international poster. While I don't think this is as eye-catching as the last one, it is pretty damn snazzy and I like the darker, futuristic look of it. It kind of reminds me of Blade Runner just a bit, but who knows if that's really what the movie will feel like. If you've been following our updates on it, apparently the film was taken out of director Mathieu Kassovitz's hands and edited by Fox. Right now we're trying not to think about that and enjoy the poster on its own while waiting for this to finally hit theaters.
Thanks to the Vin Diesel Gallery for sending us the poster! Check it out below.
In the Mathieu Kassovitz-directed film, a veteran-turned-mercenary (Vin Diesel) agrees to escort a woman from Russia to Germany, not realizing that she's the host for an organism that a cult wants to harvest into a genetically-modified Messiah. Opening in North America on August 29, the movie co-stars Gérard Depardieu, Michelle Yeoh, Charlotte Rampling, Mark Strong, Radek Bruna, Melanie Thierry and Lambert Wilson.
Babylon A.D. is directed by French filmmaker Mathieu Kassovitz, who also directed 2003's Gothika and a French film from 2000 titled The Crimson Rivers as well as a few other French flicks. Babylon A.D. currently arrives in theaters on August 29th later this year.
looks cool, I love giant gloomy futuristic settings!

I am really afraid that this movie could be entirely butchered to hell, but with it's cast it will probably do alright box office-wise anyways.

The poster is pretty well done. But they are cutting the film short to 90mins, which sucks. & dey will be cutting de bad lang/viloence/blood/gore hence would be pg-13. (12a). This could make vin's "bad boy image" loook awful. He should kIK de editor's ASS DUDE!!

I'm all for Blade Runner-influenced films, but this looks to be a cheap Vin Diesel knock off. No thanks.

That looks a lot like the poster for Oldboy.

It's the European poster, not the international. Fox is doing their own promo on US territory and they'll have their own posters and trailers. In other news, the European official movie website is live as of today under bad-lefilm.com
