While most of us can’t get to San Diego for Comic-con, we can still hang around the periphery, enjoying the bits and pieces studios release to tie in with the event. That includes a lot of posters. We’ve now got a quintet of fresh looks at upcoming movie with an Oldboy banner, as well as new posters for 300: Rise Of An Empire, Getaway, Only God Forgives and the reboot of The Crow. You can take a look at all of them below.
Spike Lee’s remake of Oldboy follows an advertising executive (Josh Brolin) who is abruptly kidnapped and held hostage for 20 years in solitary confinement. When he is inexplicably released, he embarks on an obsessive mission to discover who orchestrated his bizarre and torturous punishment, only to find he is still trapped in a web of conspiracy and torment.
The Crow gets a poster from the comic’s creator, James O’Barr, along with the news that after years in development, it should finally start shooting in Ocotber. Luke Evans will play Eric Draven, who dies but comes back as The Crow to avenge the murder of his girlfriend. F. Javier Gutiérrez directs.
Getaway follows former race car driver Brent Magna (Ethan Hawke) is pitted against the clock. Desperately trying to save the life of his kidnapped wife, Brent commandeers a custom Shelby Cobra Mustang, taking it and its unwitting owner (Selena Gomez) on a high-speed race against time, at the command of the mysterious villain holding his wife hostage. It’s out in the US in August and currently scheduled for an early October release in the UK.
In Only God Forgives, Julian (Gosling) lives in exile in Bangkok where he runs a Thai boxing club as a front for the family’s drugs smuggling operation. When Julian’s brother Billy is killed their mother, Jenna (Kristen Scott Thomas), arrives in the city. She wants revenge and forces Julian to find the killer. Julian’s contacts in the criminal underworld lead him directly to The Angel of Vengeance, a retired police officer who knows everything and who is both Judge and Punisher. Jenna demands that Julian kill The Angel of Vengeance, an act that will cost him dearly.
300: Rise Of An Empire sees Sullivan Stapleton as Themistokles, who tries to unite all of Greece in battle against the massive Persian army lead by Xerxes and the cunning Artemisia (Eva Green). It’s out March 2014.
