[UPDATE: We have a new poster for the Coen Brothers' western, True Grit as well.]
New posters have been unveiled, including that for a film that will be very gory, Saw 3D, a film that will be very pretty, The Tourist, and a film, the new Gulliver’s Travels, that, frankly, we don’t really understand why it exists in the first place.
Saw 3D will be the first of these pics to hit theaters and it promises to be the no-holds-barred finale of the long-running Saw franchise. The horror pic should deliver plenty of nasty blood and guts for its fans, while the trailer suggests that it will also use the 3D technology in an effective manner.
Here is the official synopsis for Saw 3D, in case you were curious:
As a deadly battle rages over Jigsaw’s brutal legacy, a group of Jigsaw survivors gathers to seek the support of self-help guru and fellow survivor Bobby Dagen (played by Sean Patrick Flannery), a man whose own dark secrets unleash a new wave of terror…
The final Saw 3D poster (which you can see below) features a stylish visual metaphor for the concept that Jigsaw’s elaborate master plan has reached its final stage and that the construction of his legacy will at last be complete – or it implies that Tobin Bell is secretly a giant robot, take your pick.

The Tourist is a thriller in the vein of Alfred Hitchcock’s North by Northwest in that it involves an innocent man, Frank (Johnny Depp), who gets caught up in a whirlwind adventure when he crosses paths with a lovely but mysterious woman, Elise (Angelina Jolie).
Depp and Jolie are two of the prettier faces currently working in Hollywood and The Tourist was shot on location in the gorgeous city of Venice – needless to say, this film will be easy on the eyes. The trailer for The Tourist was decent, so hopefully it will make for a fun time at the theater.
Have a look at the new poster for The Tourist below:
Gulliver’s Travels arrives just under twelve days after The Tourist hits theaters this December and looks to appeal to families during the winter holiday season.
Jack Black stars in the pic as the titular hero, who – in this modernized version of Jonathan Swift’s original novel – is a travel writer who ends up getting trapped on the island of Liliput, a world populated by people the size of action figurines.
We have yet to see a full trailer for the film, but when the poster ( which can be viewed below) claims that Gulliver’s Travels is “from the studio that brought you ‘Night at the Museum,’” is there really any reason to wonder what kind of movie it will be?
Filmmaking siblings Joel and Ethan Coen will unleash their latest project, the western True Grit, on Christmas Day of this year.
The film is based off the 1968 novel True Grit - which was previously adapted for the big screen as a John Wayne vehicle – and reunites the Coens with their Big Lebowski star Jeff Bridges, as well as their No Country For Old Men leading man Josh Brolin. The cast also includes Matt Damon and newcomer Hailee Steinfeld as a fourteen-year-old girl out to avenge her father’s death.
A teaser trailer for True Grit premiered earlier this week and now there is an official poster for the film as well. The one-sheet (which can be seen below) is minimalistic in design, but lovely to admire all the same – rest assured, True Grit will be one film to keep an eye out for this holiday season.
