Universal has just sent over high resolution versions of the recently released Repo Men movie posters. I believe they came out last week when I was at Sundance, hence why we didn’t post them.
The film stars Jude Law, Forest Whitaker, Liev Schreiber, RZA, Alice Braga, and Carice van Houten and it’s a futuristic action-thriller where a company called The Union has extended people’s lives thanks to expensive mechanical organs. Jude Law and Forest Whitaker play the people who collect the organs if you can’t pay.
While I love futuristic movies, I know this film was due to be released awhile ago and the date kept getting pushed back. Not a good sign. But saying that, I’m still in based on the cast and concept. I’m just hoping the film surprises me. Hit the jump to check out the posters and the full synopsis:

REPO MEN are the best in the business…Consider them your final notice.
Payment due on April 2, 2010
In the futuristic action-thriller Repo Men, humans have extended and improved our lives through highly sophisticated and expensive mechanical organs created by a company called The Union. The dark side of these medical breakthroughs is that if you don’t pay your bill, The Union sends its highly skilled repo men to take back its property…with no concern for your comfort or survival.
Jude Law plays Remy, one of the best organ repo men in the business. When he suffers a cardiac failure on the job, he awakens to find himself fitted with the company’s top-of-the-line heart-replacement…as well as a hefty debt. But a side effect of the procedure is that his heart’s no longer in the job. When he can’t make the payments, The Union sends its toughest enforcer, Remy’s former partner Jake (Academy Award® winner Forest Whitaker), to track him down.
Now that the hunter has become the hunted, Remy joins Beth (Alice Braga), another debtor who teaches him how to vanish from the system. And as he and Jake embark on a chase across a landscape populated by maniacal friends and foes, one man will become a reluctant champion for thousands on the run.
