New fan posters for Shyamalan's After Earth and Schwarzenegger's Last Stand courtesy of Comic Con
I love that Comic Con ended five days ago and we are atill getting little tidbits of goodness. Take these two new fan posters, for instance.
The first is for the upcoming Arnold Schwarzenegger movie THE LAST STAND. From director Kim Jee-won (I SAW THE DEVIL, THE GOOD THE BAD AND THE WEIRD) THE LAST STAND follows a disgraced L.A.P.D. cop (Arnie) in a new job in a small town, who is trying to stop a drug cartel leader, Cortez (Eduardo Noriega), who has just busted out of prison and is trying to make it across the border with $400 million. Zach Gilford and Rodrigo Santoro are the team of cops on the small town force working with Ahnuld, and together they will team up against Peter Stormare who works for Cortez. Genesis Rodriguez will play an FBI agent with Johnny Knoxville, Forest Whitaker and the always awesome Harry Dean Stanton rounding out the cast.
The poster has a nice 1970s era vibe to it. Hopefully the movie feels that way too. All of Ah-nuld's movies started to blend together in the late nineties, so I hope THE LAST STAND is a unique experience.We'll see for ourselves on January 18, 2013.
We also have the first poster for M Night Shyamalan's AFTER EARTH starring Will and Jaden Smith. The viral video that came out of Comic Con was very disappointing but this poster leaves a nice image of how our world may look a thousand years in the future.
Plot: The film is set 1,000 years after cataclysmic events force humanity’s escape from Earth to Nova Prime. Legendary General Cypher Raige (Will Smith) returns from an extended tour of duty to his estranged family, ready to be a father to his 13-year-old son, Kitai (Jaden Smith). When an asteroid storm damages Cypher and Kitai’s craft, they crash land on a now-unfamiliar and dangerous Earth. As his father lies dying in the cockpit, Kitai must trek across the hostile terrain to recover their rescue beacon, giving him a chance to be a soldier like his father.
Shyamalan lost my automatic ticket after THE LADY IN THE WATER, but if a real trailer looks good, I may check out AFTER EARTH on June 7, 2013.
(UPDATE: Turns out I was punk'd on these posters. A fan made fake. As soon as the real one is out we will let you know.)
