Poster Round-Up: First Jack Reacher poster, three stunning alternates for Killing Them Softly, and Paperboy character posters

JACK REACHER has the potential to be really good or really forgettable and this new poster doesn't help matters. From those who have read the Lee Child novels that JACK REACHER is based on, Reacher is a beast of a man. When I see Tom Cruise, I do not think beast. That does not mean that Cruise cannot be a badass, but I just don't get a good vibe from the teaser or this poster.

You can tell absolutely nothing about JACK REACHER from this poster aside from the fact he is played by Tom Cruise and he has red blood. Is the brooding visage supposed to portray confidence or the lack of emotion? Not having read the novel, I have no idea if this fits with anyone's expectations. As a movie fan, I feel no different from this than I did after the teaser.

Written and directed by Christopher McQuarrie, JACK REACHER still has potential, we just need to see more. With a cast that includes Rosamund Pike, David Oyelowo, Richard Jenkins, Alexia Fast, Robert Duvall, Jai Courtney, and Werner Herzog, how could it be bad? We will find out when it opens on December 21st.

Just the other day, we brought you three amazing alternate posters for KILLING THEM SOFTLY. Three more have popped up online and are definitely in the running for best posters of the year. They are simultaneously retro and modern and all visualize the recurring theme in the movie of the American Dream.

KILLING THEM SOFTLY was in contention for the Palm D'Or at the recent Cannes Film Festival and has been receiving accolades ever since. Costarring Brad Pitt, James Gandolfini, Ray Liotta, Sam Shepard, and Richard Jenkins, a href="http://www.joblo.com/upcomingmovies/2012/killing-them-softly">KILLING THEM SOFTLY opens on November 30th.

Lee Daniels' THE PAPERBOY looks like a nice trashy noir movie. The stories floating around about the scene in which Nicole Kidman pisses on Zack Efron is enough to pique my interest. Any movie will stars that is willing to push the envelope with something like that is worth checking out. I have a very high tolerance for gross, but to each their own.

These character posters, like the KILLING THEM SOFTLY alternates, really evoke the retro vibe the movie emanates. Efron, Kidman, Cusack, and McConaughey all look greasy, sweaty, and down right perfect.

THE PAPERBOY opened in limited release on October 5th.

I'd have to go with the American flag made of bullets. Though there were some in the last batch I might pick over that one.

JACK REACHER

looks fucking badass! That trailer was so awesome, I am down as hell for this movie. Haven't read the books either and the poster is a bit generic (better than half the usual crap though, and hey it's just a teaser poster) but the movie looks like an absolute blast.

Also awesome to see the fantastic James Gandolfini get some space on the posters! Unfortunately I heard he has a rather small role though (though apparently he steals every scene he's in). Cool nonetheless.

How come the marketing team made a poster of a supporting character in Jack Reacher and not the main character played by Alexander Rhodes?

Those posters for Killing Them Softly are amazing. The Jack Reacher poster could use a little help though.
