Next week, Martin McDonagh‘s Seven Psychopaths hits theaters. The film centers on a screenwriter (Colin Farrell) suffering writer’s block, who then gets drawn into the mayhem created by his two dog-napping friends (Sam Rockwell and Christopher Walken) after they kidnap a shih tzu belonging to a psychotic gangster (Woody Harrelson). CBS Films is premiering special posters for the film, and we’re proud to debut Chris Thornley‘s art for Harrelson’s character. The studio is also asking fans to create a new poster, and CBS Films wants you as the psychopath.
First up, here’s the full poster:
