Punisher: War Zone Finally Gets an Official Teaser Poster
Although it isn't even due out until December, I feel like Punisher: War Zone is really missing some desperately needed media. There are hardly any good photos and there is no footage. As far as I know, the buzz on this is pretty bad. No one really expects it to be good with Thomas Jane gone and a girl (*gasp*) directing. But alas, I'm still thinking it could be good - only because Lexi's Green Street Hooligans did kick some ass. The first teaser poster has debuted on UGO and can be seen below. It's just some simple imagery, nothing special. If you squint, it even looks like bike chains. But in actuality, it's an excessive number of bullets shot into a faux metal sign. Cool? Not really…
Punisher: War Zone is directed by up-and-coming filmmaker Lexi Alexander of Green Street Hooligans previously. The script has gone through numerous revisions, however the latest draft was finished by Matt Holloway and Art Marcum, who both wrote the script for Iron Man. Punisher: War Zone arrives in theaters on December 5th later this year.

there's not enough information out to make any type of judgment. Posters good enough for people walking through the theater's who don't pride themselves (as most of us do) on knowing movie news inside and out. Once the trailers and images start coming out, I'm sure there will be a lot more hype. Thomas Jane being gone is a big loss, as I find movies with sequels that don't have the same actors are way to fuckin' jarring for my taste. Maybe I'll just decide to think of it in the terms of when they updated punisher from the early marvel to the much grittier version of him now. Big change in looks. anyway, not enough info, so no clear judgment can be made. hold the horses, folks.

Why did everyone like Thomas Jane so much? Guy's got a girl's first name for a last name! What a country! Punisher is like Batman with all the fun and interesting stuff sucked out of it.

I think Punisher fans liked Thomas Jane so much because they were starved for a realisation of The Punisher/Frank Castle and Jane was as good as it had so far gotten...which is NOT to say it was good. Heretofore, Punisher films have been made by people who didn't really respect the source material. That's so true with a lot of comic-to-movie films. That's changing, thank the goddess! Frankly (pun intended), I'm not into super-heroes who fly around wearing tights and funny masks. That just makes me snigger. Frank Castle is a MAN...a highly trained and powerful man, but a man all the same. He hurts. Indeed, his pain is the whole reason for he Punisher. That and his mission to punish those who would cause OTHERS pain. Yeah, I know. Batman hurts, too, and is on a mission. Still, I can't get past the tights and mask enough to take him seriously. All right! I'll admit I'm a bit of a "sick fuck," as director Lexi Alexander lovingly calls Punisher fans, and I like the violence. Some people really NEED killing and Frank does it so very well! If your only exposure to The Punisher is film, you're really missed something. Try reading Ennis's MAX series, start to finish. If you don't come out of that a fan...well, you're just one of those guys who needs tights and a mask!

This movie can be good...what most excites me is Kurt Stutter(sp?) from the Shield at least touched the script at one point..if I recall last time I checked IMDB he isn't credited with a rewrite..but it at least gives me some hope. I am a hardcore Punisher fan...and if they can capture some of the darkness from the Garth Ennis version of the Punisher then the movie will be good.

Holy crap number 9, Punisher fan? Anyways, this is a trashy poster for the new Punisher movie. But I must say this to Alex, even if a woman IS directing this new Punisher movie, why does the sex of the director have anything to do with the quality of the movie? Look at Kathryn Bigelow, she directed "Point Break" and "Strange Days" and those were both awesome action movies! Its all about the mind, not the body when it comes to creating art. Sound off!!
