Osama bin Laden manhunt film Code Name: Geronimo scores a first poster

3 years agoby:

Code Name Geronimo title

Technically this is the Brazilian poster for CODE NAME: GERONIMO, but it's the first piece of art I've seen and I can't imagine our own domestic art will be all that different. Not to mention the fact that the tagline is in English anyway.  

CODE NAME: GERONIMO, a competitor with Katherine Bigelow's ZERO DARK THIRTY for your "Osama bin Laden manhunt true story" dollars this fall, may be receiving a relatively swift push by distributors The Weinstein Company with an eye towards releasing some time in midddle or late October despite having received little-to-no promotion thus far.

The film stars Anson Mount ("Hell on Wheels"), William Fichtner, Freddy Rodriguez, Cam Gigandet (EASY A), Kathleen Robertson (HOLLYWOODLAND), and Robert Knepper (HITMAN, R.I.P.D.), and seeks to tell the story of Seal Team Six's hunt for Osama bin Laden.

Is there anything about the poster art shown below that attracts your attention, or does the tagline alone do the job? Or perhaps not even that? While more "generic military movie" than anything else, at least this poster looks like it took more than thirty seconds to make and won't leave you in the dark knowing zero about the film.

um...ok

Trying not to laugh my head off but this looks slightly over the top for a supposedly secret covert-op. The only thing missing is Bruce Springsteen with a US flag in one hand and I mic in the other while screaming "Born In The USA"

Tidbit:

Hopefully not anymore after these two patriotic HOO-RAH cash grabs. I have a hard time believing the government would just declassify the way things went down for a few hollywood producers. No, user Half is right. These flicks will be about as true as Texas Chainsaw Massacre or the Amityville Horror.

Regardless of the quality of any of these movies I think we can agree on one point:

The ending is awesome.

I didn't double post this.

After submitting I was directed to the homepage of the site and when I clicked back it showed no post. Then I reloaded and suddenly double post.

Don't outsource your web work. You get what you pay for.

lol@guy with pistol

Everyone else...silenced assault rifles with heavy gear. You...grab that pistol. You're kind of a dick and we all kinda want you to die.

COD comparisons are inevitable but mostly because the COD mechanics (contrary to what every arm chair naysayer will have you think) is alarmingly realistic when compared to that 5% of most people's military experience that involves combat.

While the Zero Dark Thirty poster is, obviously, more minimalist, I think it tells a greater story than the uninspired Geronimo one, which could be used for about eleventy billion other military-theme movies. The ZDT one makes you wonder what it's all about, and hints at the notion of redaction, i.e. showing you something you're not supposed to know. The other says: hey, look, dudes with guns. Dunno... I like the ZDT one better. =) I like Mount though, so should be interesting nonetheless.
