Tonight brings new posters for The Whistleblower and Cowboys & Aliens. Rachel Weisz stars as “an American police officer who takes a job working as a peacekeeper in post-war Bosnia” in The Whistleblower, inspired by a true story. Vanessa Redgrave, Monica Bellucci, and David Strathairn also star in the directorial debut of Larysa Kondracki. The Whistleblower opens on August 5.
The new Cowboys & Aliens banner poster continues to highlight the anachronistic technology shackled to Daniel Craig’s wrist. Director Jon Favreau credits that image to producer Steven Spielberg, which explains pretty much all you need to know about its raw cinematic appeal. Harrison Ford, Olivia Wilde, Paul Dano, Clancy Brown, and Walton Goggins also star. Cowboys & Aliens opens on July 29.
Hit the jump to see both posters.
Inspired by actual events, Kathy (Weisz) is an American police officer who takes a job working as a peacekeeper in post-war Bosnia. Her expectations of helping to rebuild a devastated country are dashed when she uncovers a dangerous reality of corruption, cover-up and intrigue amid a world of private contractors and multinational diplomatic doubletalk.
1873. Arizona Territory. A stranger (Craig) with no memory of his past stumbles into the hard desert town of Absolution. The only hint to his history is a mysterious shackle that encircles one wrist. What he discovers is that the people of Absolution don’t welcome strangers, and nobody makes a move on its streets unless ordered to do so by the iron-fisted Colonel Dolarhyde (Ford). It’s a town that lives in fear. But Absolution is about to experience fear it can scarcely comprehend as the desolate city is attacked by marauders from the sky. Screaming down with breathtaking velocity and blinding lights to abduct the helpless one by one, these monsters challenge everything the residents have ever known. Now, the stranger they rejected is their only hope for salvation. As this gunslinger slowly starts to remember who he is and where he’s been, he realizes he holds a secret that could give the town a fighting chance against the alien force. With the help of the elusive traveler Ella (Olivia Wilde), he pulls together a posse comprised of former opponents–townsfolk, Dolarhyde and his boys, outlaws and Apache warriors–all in danger of annihilation. United against a common enemy, they will prepare for an epic showdown for survival.
