Lebanon Poster

Everyone knows I love a good movie poster and today we have another beautiful one to feature. Empire has debuted the official UK quad poster for Lebanon, the film set entirely inside of a tank (the one pictured) that premiered at the Toronto Film Festival last year (we wrote about it last September). I never got to see the film but I am still very much looking forward to seeing it whenever it shows up at another film festival. I love the poster because of the beautiful sunflower / tank dynamic. It's simple and it's eye-catching and very easy to look at. I just wish that this wasn't a beautiful poster only for the UK release. So check it out below!

Lebanon Quad Poster

Lebanon, both written and directed by Israeli filmmaker Samuel Maoz, is about a lone tank and a platoon of paratroopers that are dispatched to search a hostile town during the Lebanon War in 1982 (the same war seen in Beaufort and Waltz With Bashir). The script was based solely on Maoz's personal experiences in the war. As described by TIFF: "Lebanon is a sensual film in the dictionary sense of the word. The majority of the action takes place inside the tank, and a hot, sweaty, rusted-out place it is, rank with the odours of men and fear." We'll let you know when Sony Pictures Classics sets a US release date for Lebanon. Interested?

"is about a lone tank and a platoon of paratroopers that are dispatched to search a hostile town during the Lebanon War" So its not entirely in a tank if it focuses on a paratrooper squad too, Im not trolling its just Im wondering if this is an actual war movie or some political look at the effects of war inside of a tank.

Well that really did not answer your question...I think the film say what the crew of the tank goes through having the power to take a life.

Cody, The unit is commanded by the paratroop leader, who enters the tank for conferences with the tankers. He is also seen later in the film through the optics of the gunner's sight. And he communicates with the tankers over the radio. So he is a constant presence in the film, even thought the film is set entirely within the tank turret. Have a look at the trailer to se how they did it: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IvYCW1LVFIE
