We’ve got two new posters and a swell international poster to share with our readers today. Briefly:
- Life of Pi – The new poster for Ang Lee’s gorgeous-looking adaptation of the classic Yann Martel novel is, well, gorgeous. The story’s tiger looms large while we see Pi and his furry companion on the open sea. The film hits theaters in 3D on November 21st.
- Trouble with the Curve – A new poster for the Robert Lorenz-directed baseball drama features the film’s three main leads—Clint Eastwood, Amy Adams, and Justin Timberlake—dwarfed by an empty baseball stadium. The film opens on September 28th.
- Killing Them Softly – Though we just debuted a new poster for this Brad Pitt-fronted crime drama yesterday, this international poster is a must-see if only for the film’s amazing Spanish title: Mátalos Suavemente. The film opens on October 19th.

Here’s the synopsis for Life of Pi:
Director Ang Lee (Brokeback Mountain, Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon) creates a groundbreaking movie event about a young man who survives a tragic disaster at sea and is hurtled into an epic journey of adventure and discovery. While marooned on a lifeboat, he forms an amazing and unexpected connection with the ship’s only other survivor — a fearsome Bengal tiger.
