Sick to death of boring film posters: Max Payne
The actor whose name we all like to say out loud (Marky Mark Wahlberg) is back "with a vengeance" in the upcoming movie Max Payne. It is based on the popular video game and I for one am sick of watching tedious new releases of international posters. In recent days two more posters have been released. Both of these posters are of the aforementioned Marky Mark staring straight down at the ground. Is it me? Is he going to spend the whole film not looking where he's going? Take a look at the archway shot and you'll notice that this pose resembles something of an angel (Symbolism 101), but just because they were designed by an artist who went to school doesn't mean their any good. When is the studio going to admit that this is "The Punisher" with a different name (pure conjecture)?
In the meantime we are all going to wait patiently (until October / November 2008) and hope that there is more than just a brooding character in this upcoming game adaptation . Until then, let's all stare at Marky Mark Wahlberg looking depressed.
