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.

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.

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’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:

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.

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.

  1. Looking forward to The Box. It’s directed by the guy who did Donnie Darko and based on a Twilight Zone episode, so I have high hopes.

    The poster for Takers was a good idea, but the execution was horrible. I mean, could they really not get them all in a room together? Why use so much photoshop for a poster that really doesn’t need ANY? Or at least get someone half way skilled with layers.

    And is it just me, or does The Shrine sound an awful lot like the plot from Resident Evil 4? The game, not the upcoming movie.

  2. Nice touch on D9 being the 9th photo link,,, haahaaa,,!

    Definitely going to check out the Quaid film, he’s one of the greats,,,,!!!

    I hate to say it but the Michael Jackson poster is the best one here,,,

  3. @ Josh Rose

    Yeah,and he’s also the same guy that directed Southland Tales.

    In case you didn’t get the tone of the comment,that’s a bad thing.

  4. That Growl looks to be a killer werewolf movie with an original plot for a change.

  5. Takers. Worst photoshop job…. EVER. In this day and age, if you can’t doctor a poster properly, you should go back to fetching lunch for people who can. Yeesh.

  6. How interesting…a big-screen remake of a Twilight Zone episode from 1985-86, called “Button, Button” and based on the Richard Matheson short story published in Playboy in 1970 (Matheson hated the TZ version, according to Wikipedia).

    The link: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Button,_Button_(The_Twilight_Zone)

    The plot, word-for-word:
    “Norma Lewis is the wife of a down-and-out man named Arthur, who has problems landing steady employment and can only afford to put his wife in a low-rent apartment. One day, they receive a mysterious box with a button on it and a note that says a Mr. Steward will come visit. Then, just as the note says, a smartly-dressed stranger who introduces himself as Steward comes to their door. He explains that if they press the button on the box, two things will happen: they will receive $200,000, and someone “whom you don’t know” will die.

    After the stranger leaves, the Lewises wonder whether Steward’s proposal is genuine, and agonize over whether to press the button. Norma rationalizes that they could make good use of the money, and that the one who dies might be some Chinese peasant who is living a miserable life. Arthur takes the side that since they do not know who will die, pressing the button may cause the death of an innocent baby. They open the box and discover no mechanism inside it – it is simply an empty box with a button on it. Arthur angrily throws the box in the trash. However, in the middle of the night while Arthur is asleep, Norma goes to the apartment building’s dumpster and retrieves the device. The next day, Arthur leaves for work and sees Norma sitting at the kitchen table, her gaze transfixed on the button. At the end of the day, he returns from work and it appears that nothing has changed; Norma is still concentrating only on the button and sitting. The days go by. Norma and Arthur keep talking about the box, when suddenly Norma decides that she will push the button. She does it and her husband looks at her with disgust. They go to bed after seeing nothing happens.

    However, the next day the stranger returns, takes back the box, and gives them a briefcase with the $200,000. The Lewises are in shock and ask what will happen next. The stranger ominously replies that the button will be “reprogrammed” and offered to someone else with the same terms and conditions, adding as he focuses on Norma, “I can assure you it will be offered to someone whom you don’t know.” A horrified, knowing expression crosses Norma’s face…”

  7. @Dan

    What a perfect example of a Twilight Zone episode’s typical focus on morality. Unfortunately, if they stick to the episode that closely then you’ve just given away the ending of the movie.

    Vic

  8. That was the TZ ending…anyone’s guess as to whether or not someone will stick closer to Matheson’s original story, or cling to TZ Version like Velcro toilet paper…

  9. So it’s ok to kill a Chinese guy, but not an “innocent” baby.

    Alright, I see how it is… :-D

  10. MJ is definitely the king. Whenever i listen to his records i feel like he is still alive. Certainly one of the best music stars ever!
