There haven’t been a ton of trailers this year that have genuinely put a smile on my face. The red-band trailer for “Legion,” however, was one of them. I don’t know if everything I smiled at was the desired reaction, however I smiled and that means I’m going to see the film. Anyhow, some new banner images have just been revealed for “Legion,” and they look pretty decent. Amongst them Charles S. Dutton does not appear, and that doesn’t speak too well for the mortality of his character. Hit the jump to see them:
Here’s the synopsis:
The lord is unhappy with us, and he plans to end us by enforcing the Apocalypse. However, mankind has a savior, and it is the unborn child of an incredibly sexy waitress (Adrianne Palicki) from Podunk, Desert (not a real place, as of yet.). Lucky for us not all of God’s disciples agree with him, and the archangel Michael, played by Paul Bettany, is descending upon us to fight for the safety of mankind’s only hope for a future; and coming to fight alongside him are a group of seasoned actors (Dennis Quaid, Charles S. Dutton, Lucas Black, and Tyrese Gibson), two of which have training in driving fastly, and furiously.
I honestly don’t know a lot about the production beyond what’s in the trailer, however I kinda dug the trailer despite it looking pretty unintentionally silly. The banners seem to fit the theme, and as pointed out by JoBlo when viewed as a group the excerpts form a full quote from Matthew 13:49, however when viewed individually the section used on Tyrese’s is pretty non-descriptive and poor compared to the rest. I can’t say I’m looking forward to “Legion” per se, which gives me hope that I’ll enjoy it more than I expect to.
Here’s 3 of the new posters. Check out the other 3 at Joblo.
