‘Seven Psychopaths’ Get Eight Posters
A few days ago, the trailer for ‘Seven Psychopaths‘ arrived and reminded the world that Martin McDonagh, the mad genius behind the truly incredible ‘In Bruges,’ has a new film out this Fall. Now the film has a series of posters: one main one-sheet and an additional poster for each of the titular psychopaths, showcasing the movie’s mind-blowing cast.
First up is the complete cast poster, which sells one of the strongest casts in recent memory. This line-up is so good that makes most 2012 ensembles look embarrassing.
Olga Kurylenko graces the first poster and after appearing in a rather poor Bond film (‘Quantum of Solace’) and two forgettable video game adaptations (‘Hitman’ and ‘Max Payne’), it’s good to see her in a movie that’ll give her chance to actually act.
Christopher Walken tends to play Christopher Walken these days, but that is in no way a bad thing. After all, he’s Christopher friggin’ Walken. ’nuff said. If anyone knows how to make proper use of him, it’s McDonagh.
Colin Farrell can often be hit-and-miss (you can file ‘Total Recall’ firmly and unilaterally under “miss”), but when he’s allowed to use his own accent and paired with the proper director (like he was in ‘In Bruges’), he can be phenomenal.
Sam Rockwell is probably the best actor working today (see ‘Moon’ if you think this is a false statement), so his mere presence her should brighten any movie fan’s day.
Abbie Cornish, like Olga Kurylenko, is a pretty face who hasn’t been given too many opportunities to stretch her thespian legs yet. This will be her chance.
Tom Waits. With a bunny. That alone should earn your ticket money..
And finally, we come to Woody Harrelson, playing the villain of the film. For an actor who seems to work non-stop, he rarely disappoints.
‘Seven Psychopaths’ opens on October 12th.
