Check These Out: Character Posters for Scott Stewart's Legion
by Alex Billington

I wasn't initially planning on featuring these posters today at first glance, but after noticing that they all have a snippet of a longer, biblical quote on them, I thought why the hell not? Although I'm not particularly excited for Scott Stewart's Legion, starring Paul Bettany as the Archangel Michael, I do admire all of this marketing, as this imagery is badass and would otherwise sell me if it weren't for the trailer looking pretty bad. All six of these character posters come from JoBlo. Together they say: "So it will be at the end of the age the angels will come forth to take out the wicked and throw them into the furnace of fire." Awesome.
Having lost faith in the human race, a legion of angels descend to Earth to bring about the Apocalypse. Humanity's only hope lies in a group of strangers trapped in a diner and the Archangel Michael himself.
Legion is directed by first-time feature filmmaker Scott Stewart, a former visual effects artist who worked on films like Sin City, Pirates of the Caribbean, and Iron Man. The screenplay was co-written by Stewart and former editor Peter Schink with the short Gotham Cafe being his only past writing credit. Sony Pictures will be bringing Legion to theaters everywhere starting on January 22nd, 2010 early next year. Excited?

A legion of pissed off angels, the Apocalypse, and a pregnant chick with big guns... er gun. I'm not religous or anything, but what's not to like?

ive seen the preview and im not sold yet . Hollywood has lost it's originality . I might see it when it comes out just to comment on it and as a HorroR/scifi FAN, who wouldn't check it out ? Lets hope its worth the $10 to $12 dollars we all pay at the box office...good luck everyone .

The posters aren't too bad, but still doesn't make me want to watch this movie.

The movie looks terrible, the granny scene made me go WTH!

Well I'd like to provide a voice of dissent... I'm looking forward to this movie, even if I'm the only one. :p

I'll probably go see it as well, but I'm not expecting it to be Citizen Kane or anything. I will say, tho, that the trailer spoke of a plot and characters. The trailer for 2012 was just "look at shit blow up". People love that trailer. People are stupid. This movie will be 10x more fun than 2012 and not even get one tenth of the boxoffice - I'll guarantee it.

Yeah...that's not a quote from the Bible, btw. They made it up.

Angel: 'Cast thyself to Hades.' Dennis Quaid: 'You First.' Shoots angel in the face with a shotgun. Win.

That poster with the angel on the bottom just doesn't look right. The guy's at a 3/4 pose, but it's like his wings aren't attached at all because they're pointing forward instead of aligning with his shoulder. Bad photoshop:(

I think the trailer looks terrible. Very cheesy, with bad dialogue, and effects that are mediocre at best. The f-bomb dropping granny was probably meant to be "totally shocking and hilarious, lol", but I just felt uncomfortable, because it seemed so desperate and stupid. Well, I might watch it anyways (not in theaters, tho). Some movies are so bad they turn out to be fun again. Or rather, it's fun to make fun of them. Oh, and I agree with cs. The wings in the Gabriel poster are off, and it looks wrong.

o0o0 I like the third one. where it says "the angels will come forth" not the words, but the pic.

Tyrese is reaching that Ludacris status, in that, it is becoming repulsive just seeing him on a movie poster. He must redeem himself in this one.

Not a bad poster.
