Last week we reported on some new clips and images from the upcoming action-war film, The Hurt Locker. Having been showed in other countries around the world as far back as April last year, the film is just this month making it’s way to the US. Everything we’ve seen from it so far has looked great, and today we have a brand new poster for it that just adds to that list.
The new Hurt Locker poster is what you would aptly describe as, “explosive, intense, exciting,” and any other number of descriptive words of that sort that you can think of. Check it out below:

I like that the poster is simultaneously chaotic and yet still seems simple somehow: Simple in that it just shows what looks like a scene right out of the movie, chaotic in that, of course, there’s an explosion, a helicopter, and a guy running for his life.
All in a days work, I guess…
I am not quite sure why The Hurt Locker has taken so long to make its way to U.S. theaters. It seems like a fairly bankable movie, even if director Kathryn Bigelow (Point Break) and the main star, Jeremy Renner (S.W.A.T), aren’t the biggest of names (although it does star, in presumably smaller roles, Guy Pearce, Ralph Fiennes and Lost’s Evangeline Lilly).
Much like Peter Berg’s The Kingdom (which this reminds me very much of), I believe The Hurt Locker will do fairly well at the box office – I’ll certainly be forking over my money to see it come opening day.
What do you think of the newest poster for The Hurt Locker? Are you looking forward to the movie, and do you think it will do well at the box office?
The Hurt Locker is scheduled to be released on June 26th, 2009.
