Richard Shepard‘s Dom Hemingway will be making its debut at TIFF next month, and so Fox Searchlight has released a couple new posters along with a new image. The film stars Jude Law as a safe-cracker who gets out of prisoner and sets out to obtain what he’s owed. However, a near-death experience leads him to try and re-connect with his estranged daughter (Game of Thrones‘ Emilia Clarke). Based on the posters, the movie has the potential to a delightfully irreverant British crime comedy even if it does have to swipe Chevy Chase‘s Weekend Update joke for the tagline. But when you look past the tagline, you still have a poster of a very dignified-looking baboon, so you really can’t go wrong.
Hit the jump to check out the posters and image. The film also stars Richard E. Grant (Withnail & I) and Demián Bichir (A Better Life). Dom Hemingway opens April 4, 2014.
Here’s the official synopsis for Dom Hemingway:
Jude Law plays Dom Hemingway, a larger-than-life safecracker with a loose fuse who is funny, profane, and dangerous. After twelve years in prison, he sets off with his partner in crime Dickie (Richard E. Grant) looking to collect what he’s owed for keeping his mouth shut and protecting his boss Mr. Fontaine (Demián Bichir). After a near death experience, Dom tries to re-connect with his estranged daughter (Emilia Clarke), but is soon drawn back into the only world he knows, looking to settle the ultimate debt.
