After releasing a teaser trailer in addition to some teaser posters for Casa de mi Padre, two new official posters have popped up for the Spanish comedy starring Will Ferrell. The plot revolves around a Mexican rancher (Ferrell) who must save his family’s farm while defeating a notorious drug lord and winning the hand of the lovely Sonia. Casa de mi Padre also stars Gael Garcia Bernal (The Motorcycle Diaries) and Genesis Rodriguez (Man on a Ledge). Hit the jump to check out the posters.
These stylized posters are definite eye-catchers. I can almost hear the eagle’s call, if it weren’t for that snake in its mouth. I particularly enjoy the taglines “Funniest Movie You’ll Ever Read” and “From the Gringos Who Brought You ‘Anchorman.’” The film was directed by Matt Piedmont (Funny or Die) from a screenplay by Andrew Steele (Saturday Night Live). Here are the posters (both via IMPAwards):
Check out the synopsis for Casa de mi Padre below:
“Armando Alvarez (Will Ferrell) has lived and worked on his father’s ranch in Mexico his entire life. As the ranch encounters financial difficulties, Armando’s younger brother Raul (Diego Luna) shows up with his new fiancee, Sonia (Genesis Rodriguez). It seems that Raul’s success as an international businessman means the ranch’s troubles are over as he pledges to settle all debts his father has incurred. But when Armando falls for Sonia, and Raul’s business dealings turn out to be less than legit, all hell breaks loose as they find themselves in a war with Mexico’s most feared drug lord, the mighty Onza (Gael Garcia Bernal).”
Casa De Mi Padre debuts in theaters on March 16th.
