Check This Out: Official Poster for IFC's In the Loop
IFC has debuted the official poster for the British comedy In the Loop on the politically charged Huffington Post website today. If there is anywhere that is the perfect place to debut this kind of poster, the Huffington Post is definitely it, considering how heavily into politics that newspaper is. As they explain it: "The film was inspired by how over-excited Tony Blair got whenever he set foot in the Oval Office. In fact, it's based on practically every British politician who comes to America and meets famous folk like Vice Presidents and Five-Star Generals and who can't help but get star-struck…" Check out the poster below.
We debuted the trailer for this a month ago, so be sure to watch it if you haven't already seen it. I love the simple design of this poster, and it's kind of a political cartoon as well, which is a bit cool to see.
The US President and UK Prime Minister suddenly fancy a war. But it'll be quick this time. Promise! General Miller doesn't think so and the British Secretary of State for International Development agrees. But after he accidentally backs military action on TV, he suddenly has a lot of friends in Washington DC.
In the Loop is directed by Scottish filmmaker Armando Iannucci, of "Time Trumpet" and "The Thick of It" British TV shows. The screenplay was co-written by Iannucci, Jesse Armstrong and Simon Blackwell ("Peep Show", "The Thick of It"), and Tony Roche. This first premiered at the Sundance Film Festival earlier this year and is being distributed by Optimum Releasing in the UK and IFC Films in the US. In the Loop hits theaters in the UK on April 17th and arrives in limited theaters in the US starting on July 24th.

I watched it yesterday. It's hilarious, especially the confrontation between Gandofini and Capaldi. Could have come out a few years earlier though...
