Roman Polanski’s “Carnage” unveils brilliant French poster – AWARDS ALLEY
By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: The French poster for Roman Polanski’s anticipated “Carnage” is a blissful, emotion-laden tribute to Andy Warhol’s pop art that shows the director’s A-list cast morphing from pleasure to pain in the span of three simple squares.
It’s glorious. It says so much about the film, which we are dying to see (and hopefully will catch soon enough). And it contradicts the dark tones we are expecting from Polanski’s adaptation of Yasmina Reza’s Tony-winning play … which, in a way, heightens our expectations of Polanski’s work.
The one sheet is below, courtesy of IMP Awards:
Polanski’s “Carnage” follows two couples as they discuss an incident that occurs between their children at a local park. His characters are played by Jodie Foster, Kate Winslet, Christoph Waltz and John C. Reilly, which, alone, makes us want to see it.
Then you add in the fact that Reza’s play dominated the theater scene a few years back, and you just know we are in store for heavy lifting.
Sony Pictures Classics is handling the film’s distribution. As of now, “Carnage” is set to premiere at the Venice Film Festival, then open the New York Film Festival in September.
