Official Poster Unveiled for Roman Polanski's The Ghost Writer

The Ghost Writer

Summit has just debuted the official poster for Roman Polanski's The Ghost Writer today. A few weeks ago I had the opportunity to see the film and I actually really enjoyed it. In fact, I was quoted in USA Today talking about how great it was and my thoughts the situation. It's a great mystery film with a great cast and an incredible story with some riveting twists and turns. And the score by Alexandre Desplat was incredible as well. To reference my own quote from USA Today, "it's very Hitchcockian." This poster looks pretty good, I love Pierce Brosnan on the wall behind him. Watch the first trailer here as well if you haven't seen it yet!

The Ghost Writer Poster

The Ghost Writer is directed by Oscar winning Polish-French filmmaker Roman Polanski, of many great films including When Angels Fall, Repulsion, Dance of the Vampires, Rosemary's Baby, Chinatown, Frantic, The Ninth Gate, The Pianist, and Oliver Twist most recently. The screenplay was co-written by Polanski and novelist Robert Harris. This is based on Harris' own novel of the same name as well. It was filmed in early 2009 and finished while Polanski was under house arrest in Switzerland earlier this year. Summit Entertainment is bringing The Ghost Writer to limited theaters on February 19th next month.

Even if you guys hate this poster, give the movie a chance. It really was fantastic, I'm hoping it even get an Oscar nom. That'll be tough with a February release, but it's possible. It is *that* good!

Did they use a scalpel to put him in there? This style of poster is really weird. I think if they had such a vision they could have had it done better by illustration.

The French version is much better. Ewan isn't over photoshopped and the version of the Pierce poster is more ominous with it looking like he's watching Ewan.

Wow AM, you weren't kidding. Why didn't we use that poster instead of this one?

@ Alex its a ROMAN POLANSKI movie with JAMES BOND and OBI WAN KENOBI, OF COURSE WERE DYING TO WATCH IT. Its just that this poster is could have been so much better if they had not tried to do a TAKERS on his head.

Even though I will go and see this, this film is going to have a hard time.

I'm sure you'll like the poster a lot better after some quaaludes and champagne.

Johnny very funny in a morbid way.

Xerxex on Jan 20, 2010


lol! This poster is such a good metaphor of what is wrong with much of Hollywood movies these days!

TediusTed on Jan 20, 2010


I heard very good things about the film... After the trailer I didn't care but now it looks like it could be one of the best thrillers of the decade...

I think the French poster looks good, albeit just a clipped version of the other. But God why do people like to moan so much????? About anything. Even a movie poster!
