While the John Hillcoat directed film ‘Lawless’ is on just about everyone’s most anticipated films of the year list, their posters are a little… out of place.
‘Lawless’ is the prohibition era true story of the bootlegging Bondurant brothers, based on the novel by Matt Bondurant. The film has a bevy of A-list names in it like Tom Hardy, Shia LaBeouf, Jessica Chastain, and Gary Oldman. The trailer is intense, further building anticipation for the August 31st US release. The film is set to premiere at Cannes tomorrow and I’m hoping to hear more about it in the following days!
Jessica Chastain’s poster is my favorite, obviously, and Tom Hardy’s is pretty good too. However, the rest of them seem a little… camp-y. Especially for a John Hillcoat film. Don’t the guys all look sort of like they are in an East Los Angeles gang? Current time, not prohibition era. Especially Shia LaBeouf’s, right? That one is rough.
No amount of bad posters can take away my excitement for the film though. See you in theaters this August!
