Check These Out: Great Series of X-Ray Posters for Repo Men
In the midst of all the Sundance mayhem comes these four poster for the upcoming movie Repo Men, the "wannabe remake" of Darren Bousman's Repo! The Genetic Opera. We just featured the trailer a few weeks ago and it doesn't look that bad either, so maybe I'm being a bit harsh. But anyway, IMPAwards has posted three new posters from Repo Men that put together are part of the fourth poster. It's kind of a play on the MasterCard commercials with the price of various fake organs (which is part of the concept for this movie) and the "Total Price: $2,600,000." They actually do look pretty cool which is why I'm featuring them today.
Set in the future, the story revolves around a man (Jude Law) who struggles to make the payments on a heart he purchased. He must go on the run before said ticker is repossessed by the company that owns it.
Repo Men is directed by British first-time feature filmmaker Miguel Sapochnik, of only a short from 2000 called The Dreamer previously. This is based on Eric Garcia's novel titled The Repossession Mambo. The script was co-written by Garcia and TV writer Garrett Lerner ("Smallville", "Boston Public", "House M.D."). Universal is bringing Repo Men to theaters everywhere starting on April 2nd, 2010 next year. Thoughts?

"Wanna be remake"? How is this even close to a remake? Repo! The Genetic Opera was a Horror/Musical while this is an Action/Sci-Fi flick.

Check your facts dude! Repo! The Genetic Opera and Repo Men were in developement at the same time, so how could this be a remake? Makes no sense.

"Repo Men taking care of all your healthcare needs" Cool Looking foward to seeing this movie !

Seems like it will be Repo! without the Horror/Musical and more of a action flick. I'm sure not alot of people seen Genetic Opera, so this might be a little fresh for some. Hopefully Ogre, Bill Moseley and Paul Sorvino make a appearance. (hugely doubt it)

This movie seems like it'll be a lot of fun. Plus Law needs a crazy sci-fi starring role again.

I don't care about facts, this is a rip off. It may look cool and it will probably be awesome. But it is still a rip off of REPO: The Genetic Opera. Yup. Me no care about facts.

REPOMEN could focus on the morons who bought organs they could not afford. Then it would be different than The Genetic Opera. I would think that the company would want the patient tranquillized, then brought into a sterile environment, and NOT killed. Because murdering people is quite clearly against the law.

Fuck this. We only have ONE Repo. This is just a copy of it. No matter what they say

I agree. I don't care about the facts either. It's all about release dates to me. Hell I could say I've been working on an idea for a movie since I was nine, doesn't mean it was actually in production just cause I had an idea. Repo was an excellent film. I don't even like musicals but this movie was ahead of it's time and definately influential. Repo men will just be a flick. Yeah they'll get all the cred as far as the mainstream goes, but that's what makes being smart really fun. knowing the difference.
