Seven New 'Lawless' Character Posters Are Armed and Dangerous
The first trailer for Lawless from director John Hillcoat was rather impressive with Shia LaBeouf, Tom Hardy and Jason Clarke (in a role that should skyrocket his fame) as three bootlegging brothers who helped build the American Dream in this exuberant tale of what was to become crime’s first major gold rush. Now we have a set of character posters that don't exactly fit with the style of the film, but rather with the black and white freeze frames from the aforementioned trailer (an element I didn't like). But there's plenty of gun wielding to be seen on these posters, and even Gary Oldman and Guy Pearce get their own. Look!
John Hillcoat (The Road, The Proposition) is directing the Lawless from a script by Nick Cave which is based on Matt Bondurant's novel The Wettest County in the World. The film follows a bootlegging gang (Tom Hardy, Shia LaBeouf and Jason Clarke) in Depression-era Franklin County, Virginia, threatened by authorities who want a cut of their profits. Jessica Chastain, Gary Oldman, Mia Wasikowska, Guy Pearce, Noah Taylor and up-and-comer Dane DeHaan (of Chronicle) also star in the film which The Weinstein Company will bring to the 2012 Cannes Film Festival before it goes to theaters on August 31st this year.

Gary Oldman appears to be wearing a Gary Oldman mask!

These posters are absolutely ridiculous. You would think with all the nonsense, someone would have taken the Barbie gun from Shia and told him that crossing your arms is not a gang sign.

Probably just me since I have not seen Shia in Wall Street yet, but I cannot take him seriously because I think of Even Steven, Holes and Transformers

heh - Wall Street won't help. Not just you. Especially as a "tough guy"... forget it.

All these posters look pretty cheap and uninspired to me, but Shia LaBeaouf's definitely takes the cake. What a ridiculous pose. He looks like one of these baby faced wannabe "gangstas" that take pictures like this in front of their bathroom mirror and then post it on facebook. In both cases it's really embarrassing to look at.
