New poster for The Town features 100 percent more floating heads

08.17.2010

There was a time, perhaps around FORCES OF NATURE, when it was almost hard to remember that Ben Affleck was an Oscar winner. But with his work directing GONE BABY GONE and the look of his latest project, THE TOWN, it's not a stretch to think he'll eventually be a multiple Oscar-winner. THE TOWN has some great buzz courtesy its trailer and the film is heading to the Toronto Film Festival next month.

The original poster was a pretty cool image of creepily masked bank robbers dressed as nuns and while they're still on this new poster, they're slightly more hidden so that floating heads can be more prominent. I'm not a huge fan of the floating head design but with a cast this talented, you've got to be able to show them off somehow. Check out the new international poster for THE TOWN below and stay tuned to JoBlo.com for our complete coverage from the Toronto Film Fest!

A VAST improvement over the quite silly domestic poster. Another case in which the international poster wins. I mentioned on the domestic poster news item that a traditional floating heads poster would work far better for this film, and looks like someone else thought the same thing!

can't wait!

Good to see Ben in action again. Could someone remind me why, and how the hate started for him, because he's really taleneted

I can't even describe how much I'm looking forward to this movie.
Watched the (great) trailer around 30 times so far. I just fucking love bank robberies... This has the feel (though without the skydiving/surfing) of Point Break 2 somehow.
My #1 most anticipated movie of the year.
Oh and while I'm not gay I'm just in love with Jeremy Renner somehow.

The guy who wrote this article is a dumb-ass, those are not floating heads. The movie looks good, BTW.

They're not floating heads, those are giants standing behind the bridge.

I actually dig this poster. It's important to note that the said "floating heads" are actually attached to floating necks and shoulders as well. In fact, if one looks closely they might just get an upper bicep in there. Also machine gun bearing nun robbers doing battle with SWAT in the cold streets of BAHSTON automatically scores the win in my book!

I like this poster

It's not AMAZING, but at least those appear to be real photos of the cast and not photoshopped heads on other bodies like many posters.

Eh the poster isn't that bad. I'm not a big fan of floating heads posters(Transformers is a perfect example) but this manages to get through fine. Its better when all the actors are shown to their fullest similar to the Inception posters

The original poster was so much cooler.

Something tells me we are looking at the inevitable "These Are The Stars" DVD/ Blu Ray box art!

Oh come on

Those are floating BUSTS!!! Get it right! ;)

I should almost make the rating a dislike because of that bridge - I've sat in so much fucking traffic trying to get into the North-End from Somerville and vice versa, its not even funny.

It's a cool poster. This movie has had better ones, but not something I wouldn't having on my wall.

This movie is going to be amazing. Can't wait to see Renner and Hamm in this.

I don't understand the hatred for floating heads on posters. If the poster is trying to show off the actors, do you really have to be able to see their whole bodies? It's the face that's selling the movie for the majority of the public...

And I get that posters should be more creative and get the idea or feel of a film rather than simply sell it on star power, but floating heads shouldn't be such a crime.

While this is definitely one of the more cliched poster designs, I'm getting an urban HEAT-meets-POINT BREAK vibe from this, that's very welcome.
