George Clooney's 'The Ides of March' First Poster with Ryan Gosling

The Ides of March

One of my most anticipated movies of the fall is George Clooney's adaptation of the stage play The Ides of March, a political drama starring Clooney as a Democratic candidate. Ryan Gosling plays his up-and-coming press secretary and the film takes place during the frantic last days before a heavily contested Ohio presidential primary. The film was just announced for the Toronto Film Festival, but in addition to that, ET Online has debuted the first official poster and it's fantastic. I'm not sure why they cut this as a wide banner, but I love it anyway, it just wouldn't have the same impact without the blurry duplicate sides. Check it out!

The Ides of March

Take a closer look at the face - eerie, isn't it? The Ides of March takes place during the frantic last days before a heavily contested Ohio presidential primary, when an up-and-coming campaign press secretary (Ryan Gosling) finds himself involved in a political scandal that threatens to upend his candidate's shot at the presidency. George Clooney not only directed the film, but also stars in it with Paul Giamatti, Philip Seymour Hoffman, Marisa Tomei, Jeffrey Wright and Evan Rachel Wood. Sony Pictures already has Ides of March scheduled for release on October 7th this fall, following its premiere at the Toronto Film Festival.

that's such a sick poster

Man, forget the OBAMA "hope" poster, that poster of Clooney in the preview image is taken right out of Gary Frank's illustrations of SUPERMAN. It's uncanny.

Regardless of how good or bad this film will be, this is one hell of a poster: simple, clever, and straight to the head. Great!
