New ‘Push’ Poster

Published 5 years ago by

A new poster has been released for the new sci-fi/action-thriller film Push. The film stars Chris Evans, Dakota Fanning, Camilla Belle and Djimon Hounsou. Check out the poster below (click for larger view):

In case any of you don’t know what the film is about here is the synopsis and the trailer:

“The action packed sci-fi thriller involves a group of young American ex-pats with telekinetic and clairvoyant abilities, hiding from a clandestine U.S. government agency. They must utilize their different talents and band together for a final job enabling them to escape the agency forever.”

[MEDIA=59]

This looks pretty similar to the TV show Heroes. People with special abilities trying to evade an organization which is after them. The first season of the TV series anyway is partly about that very same thing so to me this is practically theft. But who knows perhaps it’s just the advertising that’s playing it up that way and the end product will be completely different, I certainly hope so.

The director is the Scottish Paul MaGuigan (who, by the way, comes from the town right next to me) who’s last film was the under-appreciated Lucky Number Slevin). It was clear from that film that he has some talent for creating a stylish and visually interesting film, I hope this is carried on to Push.

This poster, however, does nothing for me. Just looks sort of bland and “meh.” What do you make of the poster and the film in general? Looking forward to it or would you rather pop in season 1 of Heroes instead?

Push opens on February 9, 2009.

  1. I didnt know that heroes was being made into a movie?? Chris Evans must be portraying Peter and Dakota Fanning as Claire, with Djimon Hounsou as the Haitian and Camilla Belle es Elle.
    Though I do enjoy Chris Evans, even though his film roles tend to be questionable (i blame his agent), he has the potential to be a talented Tom Cruise-esque actor. i sort of lost faith in Dakota after War of the Worlds.Djimon Hounsou has been good no matter what i have seen him in, so the cast is somewhat decent, We will see on this one.
    I am leaning towards putting in Season 1 of heroes, before paying money to see it.

  2. I thought the same thing when I first saw the trailer: Heroes being made into a threatrical movie. Of course, I still think that Heroes is a ripoff of X-Men, but that’s just me. The poster? Looks interesting. I will most likely check it out unless Vic’s review (or whomever reviews it here) says it’s crap.

    I’m afraid I’ll have to disagree with you on Chris Evans. Apart from his pretty good performance in Sunshine I think he’s terrible. I just wanted to reach into the screen and punch the hell out of him during the Fantastic Four movies (although he was in a sea of s*** in those two:P). I haven’t heard too much praise for him, oh well to each their own.

  4. @Metallicat79
    Not sure if you could have been any more wrong with that character comparison but that’s only because I paid attention to the trailer. But your assessment of Chris Evans was pretty good.

    @Ross Miller
    I thought that was the point with Johnny Storm, you always want to punch that guy in the face.

    I havent watched the traier yet, maybe i should, that was just poking fun at the poster.
    I though Chris Evans Portryal of Johnny Storm was pretty accurate, Cocky, arrogant and you really do want knock the guy on his ass. Only tom Cruise could have played it better, Hence the Tom Cruise comparrision.

    when I had made my first comment, i had not watched the trailer, and was just poking fun at the poster and the actors listed, to me the poster screams Peter Petrelli, but thats just me.
    Having just watched the trailer, it look pretty cool, however it still looks like a blatent knock off of heroes.

    I did enjoy Fantastic Four for what it was, an action/adventure flick and looked past the cheasy story and not sticking to the orginal source. I felt Chris did a good job sticcking to the charactor from the comics, Cocky, arrogant and you just want to knock him on his ass. Only Tom Cruise could have done better, hence the Tom Cruise and Chris Evans Comparision.

  7. This looks like it has some potential..Haven’t seen Heroes so I can’t comment on the similarities..

    On a completely unrelated note The Dark Knight sold 7.5 million units this past week and generated another 159 million in revenue!! Holey Moley that is just insane as it’s opening week sales on DVD matched it’s opening weekend box office..Geez that movie was a license for Warner Brothers to print money!! Great for the genre and everyone involved with that film..

  8. Well I don’t watch Heroes so I really can’t say anything on that matter, but as far as X-Men, which I do know a little about, this looks like a pretty good case of “been there done that.” Also I HATE, I mean absolutly HATE Dakota Fanning, so I really have a very small amount interest in this movie.

  9. Is it just me or does that look like one of the posters for that game Star Wars Force Unleashed?? lol

  10. good call Ken, that’s exactly what it reminds me of
