Plenty of posters are being set up at CinemaCon right now as studios try to woo exhibitors, and Steve is on the floor snapping plenty of photos.
The first Everest poster banks on the outstanding cast—Jason Clarke, Josh Brolin, Jake Gyllenhaal, John Hawkes, Robin Wright, Emily Watson, Keira Knightley, and Sam Worthington—along with the tagline, “Human Beings Are Not Meant to Survive at the Cruising Altitude of a 747.” I cannot argue with that statement.
Everest opens September 18th. Here’s the official synopsis:
Inspired by the incredible events surrounding an attempt to reach the summit of the world’s highest mountain, EVEREST documents the awe-inspiring journey of two different expeditions challenged beyond their limits by one of the fiercest snowstorms ever encountered by mankind. Their mettle tested by the harshest elements found on the planet, the climbers will face nearly impossible obstacles as a lifelong obsession becomes a breathtaking struggle for survival. The epic adventure stars Jason Clarke, Josh Brolin, John Hawkes and Jake Gyllenhaal. They are joined by Martin Henderson, Emily Watson, Michael Kelly and Thomas M. Wright.
There’s also the first poster for Sisters starring Tina Fey and Amy Poehler, and while it doesn’t tell you anything about the film, they’ve got star power, they’re amazing together, and that’s all they really need to sell right now since the comedy doesn’t come out until the end of the year. The poster also reveals that the movie is rated-R, so that should be fun.
Sisters opens December 18th. Here’s the official synopsis:
Tina Fey and Amy Poehler reunite for Sisters, a new film from Pitch Perfect director Jason Moore about two disconnected sisters summoned home to clean out their childhood bedroom before their parents sell the family house. Looking to recapture their glory days, they throw one final high-school-style party for their classmates, which turns into the cathartic rager that a bunch of ground-down adults really need.
Finally, there’s a promo poster for London Has Fallen. It has the names of actors and the film title. That’s all you will get.
London has Fallen opens October 2nd. Here’s the official synopsis:
The story begins in London, where the British Prime Minister has passed away under mysterious circumstances. His funeral is a must-attend event for leaders of the western world. However, what starts out as the most protected event on Earth turns into a deadly plot to kill the world’s most powerful leaders, devastate every known landmark in the British capital, and unleash a terrifying vision of the future. Only three people have any hope of stopping it: the President of the United States, his formidable Secret Service head (Gerard Butler), and an English MI-6 agent who rightly trusts no one.
