Via Latino Review, here are the new character posters for Shoot Em’ Up.
They are very simple, each showcasing one of the main characters looking cool and standing against a faded background. But I think they work very well, because the characters do indeed look very cool, and the movie’s title coupled with the guns is enough to give us an idea of what the film is all about.
Each poster also has a little tagline associated with each character (click the poster to see a larger version where they are readable). They are quite amusing and add to the sense of whimsy that is also a bit present in the way the characters look. This tells us that although the movie might be serious, it also has a sense of humor.
And finally, I just love how mean Giamatti looks in his poster. Now that is a villainous face.
