One movie I’m looking forward to in the next few months is Repo Men, the upcoming film adaptation of The Repossession Mambo by Erica Garcia. If you’ve not heard about this movie, it’s an action/sci-fi/thriller set in the not too distant future where everyday folks can purchase artificially-made organs to help extend their lives.
These internal mechanical body parts are created by an organization known as “The Union” who allows anyone make purchases of these life-preserving goods on credit. If you can’t pay up, the Repo Men (Jude Law and Forest Whitaker) come to take it back. What happens when of them gets an artificial heart and can no longer do his job or pay up?
Repo Men is directed by Miguel Sapochnik who hasn’t done any major feature film directorial work and his cast also includes Liev Schreiber, Carice van Houten, RZA and Alice Braga.
Today we have the full set of stylistic movie posters for Repo Men, each which features X-Ray images of the human body with some of the mechanical organs and their prices included. You have have come across these before, but if you haven’t click through the pages to see them all:
I was already sold on Repo Men already simply for the fact that it’s bringing back some more bad-ass Jude Law like we saw with him playing Watson alongside Robert Downey’s Jr.’s Sherlock Holmes over the holiday.
Repo Men hits theaters on April 2, 2010.
