We have a couple of new posters for you guys today! The first is actually a rather cool-looking one for Johnny Depp's upcoming Hunter S. Thompson-ing in THE RUM DIARY. I'm still on the fence as to whether or not the film will be any good, but the trailer and this poster are definitely fun, which is a good sign.

On the flip side, though, is a new poster for the Yimou Zhang (HOUSE OF FLYING DAGGERS, HERO) film THE FLOWERS OF WAR starring Christian Bale. The picture, according to FirstShowing.net, "is based on Yan Geling's novel The 13 Women of Nanjing [and] will see Bale as an American priest who shelters a group of prostitutes and female students in his church during the 1937 wartime atrocity known as 'The Rape of Nanking'." It will be China's official submission for the upcoming Academy Awards. So for a likely very prestigious film, someone in charge decided to pick the most awkward facial photo of Bale ever and stuck it on the poster. It is almost awesome in its badness.

THE RUM DIARY opens October 28th while THE FLOWERS OF WAR currently has no North American release date as it searches for domestic distribution.

The poster actually makes me want to see The Rum Diary. I have no idea what it's about, but from the looks of it there's a bit of Fear and Loathing mixed with Blow. Here's hoping that comes true

So strange that Johnny Depps face isnt plastered all over The Rum Diary's poster to help SELL the film.

Bale's poster reaction: "Man, this is fucking unprofessional" :)

BTW, the film sounds great. The Rum Diary, don't really care.

Bale is trying to make the epic JackFace.

I thought this movie had a different title - 13 Women of something. Or have I got mixed up with something else?

It was titled "13 women of Nanjing" if I am not mistaken. Also, weird face from Bale.

Bale's probably thinking - "How come I feel like being pushed out of the poster???".

Wow, the look Bale has is priceless. It's like that priest is staring at the woman's boobs, salivating...
