Check This Out: John Wells' 'The Company Men' Official Poster

I had nearly forgotten about this film until this wonderful poster arrived today. Our friends at Cinematical have unveiled the official "one-sheet" for John Wells' The Company Men, the bleak indie drama starring Ben Affleck, Chris Cooper and Tommy Lee Jones as three execs who lose their jobs at a major manufacturing company and must deal with the harsh economic recession. We featured a trailer for the film back in July, so you already know what to expect, but I think this is a great poster to go along with it. I love the imagery and symbolism and I think it's just a refreshingly unique design for an indie drama these days. View it below!
It centers on a year in the life of three men (Affleck, Jones, Cooper) trying to survive a round of corporate downsizing at a major company - and how that affects them, their families, and their local communities.
The Company Men is both written & directed by Emmy-award winning filmmaker John Wells, who's making his feature directorial debut after working on numerous TV shows like "ER" and "The West Wing". This is an original story crafted by Wells. It first premiered at the Sundance Film Festival earlier this year and is being distributed by The Weinstein Company. The Company Men arrives in limited theaters this October 22nd.
I think this film will really resonate with a lot of people in the same way that Up in the Air did. It's nice to not feel so alone in our communal problems.

this will be costners comeback role hes deserved for a while maybe he get an oscar nom. Its interesting hes stars with affleck cause affleck was the costner of the 2000s (expect affleck was never talented) and his career was damaged through flops too. its going to be interesting seeing those two in a scene together it will be a real acting competition

Man I want to punch Kevin Costner in the face. He's reigned at the top of my "Actors I want to punch in the face" list for so long I had to retire his jersey. Now Hayden Christiansen tops the list. Although if you gave me a choice, I'd still be hard pressed. I'd more than likely try to find a way to punch them both right in the mush. Sweet Zombie Jesus, that would be awesome. On a side note, anyone getting a little bit of the Glengarry Glen Ross vibe from the poster? I give you exhibit A: http://www.dlmentertainment.com/?p=111379 Just photoshop some assholes in there looking in a bunch of different directions and voila, there you have it. I'm just sayin...

this is an interesting movie i also hope this a huge hit for costner. with the exception of affleck this has an allstar lineup. Tommy lee jones can any wrong. I think this will be costners pulp fiction.
