Happy Friday everyone! Today we have gathered the latest posters to come out for this week’s poster round-up.
Screen Rant’s wall this week now includes one-sheets for The Box, Pandorum, Growl, Takers, Red Cliff, The Shrine, District 9 and Michael Jackson’s This is It.
In addition to those, we also have four great character banners for Where the Wild Things Are and and as a bonus, a photo for The Twilight Saga’s New Moon.
Let’s get to it…
To start this week’s set, here’s the brand new French poster for the Cameron Diaz-starrer, The Box. The film is a horror-thriller which also stars the strong talents of James Marsden (X-Men trilogy) and Frank Langella (Frost/Nixon).
Here’s the official synopsis:
Norma and Arthur Lewis, a suburban couple with a young child, receive a simple wooden box as a gift, which bears fatal and irrevocable consequences. A mysterious stranger, delivers the message that the box promises to bestow upon its owner $1 million with the press of a button. But, pressing this button will simultaneously cause the death of another human being somewhere in the world; someone they don’t know. With just 24 hours to have the box in their possession, Norma and Arthur find themselves in the cross-hairs of a startling moral dilemma and must face the true nature of their humanity.
The Box hits theaters November 6, 2009.
Next up, are two pieces of marketing material for the sci-fi horror flick, Pandorum. One is a new banner and the other is a Brazilian poster for Pandorum.
First, the Brazilian poster:
And second, the Empire exclusive Pandorum wide poster:
Pandorum stars Dennis Quaid, Ben Foster, Cam Gigandet and Norman Reedus. It’s now scheduled to open a week later, on September 25, 2009.
Next up, an exclusive from ShockTillYouDrop where our bud Ryan Rotten got a hold of a new one-sheet for Growl and the first details on the project. The synopsis is as follows:
“A traveling underground fight club called ‘The Brawlers’ arrive at a derelict ghost town tucked away in the Colorado Rockies. They meet the town’s only residents, the Maxilla family who want to buy on to the fight card. But the Maxilla family’s true intentions for the Brawler crew is soon revealed in teeth and claws. Some will be hunted, some will be feed, and some will become part of the family… whether they like it or not.”
And here’s the poster:
Growl is tentatively scheduled for a 2011 release witch production beginning next year. Rumor has it that Kiefer Sutherland (24) is their ideal candidate to star as the lead.
Cinematical exclusive poster for Law Abiding Citizen
The cast of this drama features a whole bunch of actors I really dig, including Gerard Butler, Jamie Foxx, Leslie Bibb, Michael Gambon, Bruce McGill, Colm Meaney and Oscar-nominated Viola Davis.
Here’s the Synopsis:
Law Abiding Citizen is a thriller about a brilliant sociopath who orchestrates a series of high-profile murders that grip the city of Philadelphia – all from inside his jail cell – and the prosecutor assigned to his case who realizes he is the only one who can end the reign of terror.
Law Abiding Citizen opens October 16, 2009.
MySpace put up four brand new character banners for Where The Wild Things are, each featuring a different character.
Next up is an awful poster for Takers, the crime film directed by John Luessenhop and with a cast full of recognizable talent including Hayden Christensen, Paul Walker, Zoe Saldana, Idris Elba, Matt Dillon, Jay Hernandez, Chris Brown, Michael Ealy and Tip “T.I.” Harris.
I posted the Takers trailer this morning, it is much better than the poster in case you’re wondering – It’s still not that exciting though.

Here we have a new Poster for Red Cliff.
Red Cliff is director John Woo’s latest film, an action epic about the historic Battle of Red Cliffs that stars Tony Leung. The movie got picked up for US distribution back in May and you can click to check out the previous poster for the movie.
Red Cliff is planned to come out some time in November of 2009.
Here’s the one-sheet for The Shrine which stars Aaron Ashmore (Smallville) and is directed by Jon Knautz. Here’s the synopsis:
After a young American backpacker goes missing in Europe, a group of journalists link his disappearance to a remote village in Poland called Alwainia. Upon further investigation, the journalists discover that Alwainia has a history of bizarre cult activity revolving around human sacrifice. Hell bent on discovering the truth, they travel to the small village, but quickly find themselves pursued by a mysterious group set on killing them. Forced into the gruesome reality of true survival horror, the journalist’s soon discover that Alwainia hides a much darker secret than they could ever imagine.
… and the poster:
The Shrine is set to open next year in theaters.
If you didn’t see them earlier, here are two terribly misleading posters for District 9 that came out in preparation for the Thai release of the movie.
District 9, directed by Neill Blomkamp, is already out in theaters and if you’ve not seen it, you really should. Don’t expect to see what’s falsely depicted in these promo sheets though.
And last but not least for our latest posters, Yahoo! debuted the one-sheet for Michael Jackson’s tribute film, This is It.
This movie, made for Jackson fans and music lovers everywhere, presents a behind-the-scenes look at Michael and his career. The video focuses on his preparation for the major stage tour that was scheduled late this year in London.
This is It debuts October 28, 2009.
One more thing for you to look at – a little bonus of sorts. It’s a photo from The Twilight Saga’s New Moon featuring everyone’s favorite couple, Bella and Edward. Awwwwwww.

It’s interesting how most of these are exclusives to so many different sites, but none of them ours… Anyway, that’s it for this week in Posters. What’s your favorite out of Screen Rant’s newest additions to the wall?
If you missed out on last week’s batch of new posters, they included one-sheets for new one-sheets for Where the Wild Things Are, Fantastic Mr.Fox, 2012, The Road, Gamer, Bad Lieutenant and a pair of comedies: The Invention of Lying and Couples Retreat. Definitely check them out.
Come back next Friday for the latest.
