New Invictus poster

10.22.2009

Here's a new look at INVICTUS, formerly known as THE HUMAN FACTOR, which features Morgan Freeman as Nelson Mandela and Matt Damon as South African rugby star, Francois Pienaar. I didn't even think about this, but is there any way Damon is going to be able to pull off a South African accent? Hmm.

People are already talking Oscars for Clint Eastwood’s story of the rugby game that changed a country after apartheid had torn it apart, and the only thing this poster is missing so far is a sea of those little leaf wreaths that surround movies that win things at film festivals. All in due time.

Nice poster.

Posters for Eastwood films almost always have a simple understated elegance to them. MYSTIC RIVER is probably my favorite design.

Morgan Freeman is perfect for the role of Nelson Mandela, and Clint Eastwood is a great director. I smell Oscars!

Why wouldn't he be able to? It's not like Matt Damon is a bad actor or anything. As a matter of fact, he's one of our generation's best actors. So, yeah, he'll be able to pull off the accent.

I was on set for this.

They were filming down the road from where I lived last year. The production used my friend's house to set up catering (they were filming in the house next door) so I just pretended I lived in her house and spent the day observing.

Unfortunately I didn't get to meet Clint as he was surrounded by security, but Damon was really decent – he even posed for a photograph. His prosthetic nose is a bit weird though.

I think the poster works; it’s about what I was expecting anyway – Damon and

I think the poster works; it’s about what I was expecting anyway – Damon and Freeman’s heads with an inspiring tagline.

Very much looking forward to this.

Yes, and right after the Springboks poisoned the All Blacks a unicorn flew them all to Neverland where the rivers are filled with jellybeans and every day is Christmas.
