There are new posters for several upcoming movies – The Twilight Saga: Eclipse, The A-Team, Despicable Me, Gulliver’s Travels, Burke and Hare, and Kane and Lynch – now available for you Screen Rant readers to check out.
The third chapter in The Twilight Saga looks to be the darkest film yet, with a plot that involves an evil vampire’s quest for vengeance and the outbreak of war between the werewolves and the vampires. As with the first two Twilight films, don’t expect non-fans of the franchise to race out to see this one when it hits theaters.
The A-Team movie will feature Bradley Cooper, Liam Neeson, Sharlito Copley, and Quinton Jackson as a group of Iraq War veterans out to clear their names after they are framed for a crime they did not commit. Expect over-the-top action and explosive set pieces to ensue.
Meanwhile, those that have been longing to see Jack Black in 3D will get their chance when the new adaptation of Jonathan Swift’s classic fantasy/satire novel Gulliver’s Travels makes it way to the big screen this winter holiday season.
You can also see three incomplete pictures of the poster for Voyage of the Dawn Treader – the next entry in the Chronicles of Narnia series – by clicking HERE. We’ll post a complete shot of the movie’s poster once it’s available.
Universal Pictures has also released a new poster for their upcoming computer-animated, 3D flick Despicable Me as well:
This new cartoon concerns a devious criminal (voiced by Steve Carell) whose diabolical plan to steal the moon is thrown out of whack by the arrival of three adorable orphans. Could this be the hit needed to kick off a new wave of animated features from Universal Pictures? We’ll wait and see for now.
Curtesy of /Film, we also have a look at the poster for the grave-robbing flick Burke and Hare, which stars Simon Pegg (Star Trek), Andy Serkis (Lord of the Rings), and Isla Fisher (Wedding Crashers).
This dark comedy is based off the true story of William Burke (Pegg) and William Hare (Serkis), two gentlemen in the early 19th century who began a lucrative business delivering fresh corpses to the Edinburgh medical school.
The film is the first that director John Landis (An American Werewolf in Paris) has helmed in about 12 years, so here’s hoping it’s a return to form for the generally well-regarded filmmaker.
Does Willis still have what it takes to play an action hero on-screen? Will Foxx make for a convincing psychopath when he plays the schizophrenic Lynch? Here’s hoping for the best.
