‘Moneyball’ Poster Steps Up To Bat, While ‘The Raven’ One-Sheet Bleeds Ink

After an enticing trailer, we now have the first official poster for Bennett Miller‘s Moneyball. The drama, written by this year’s The Social Network Oscar-winner Aaron Sorkin, is based on Michael Lewis‘ nonfiction bestseller Moneyball: The Art of Winning an Unfair Game. It stars Brad Pitt, Jonah Hill, Philip Seymour Hoffman, Robin Wright, Stephen Bishop, Kathyrn Morris, and Chris Pratt. I love the simple look of this first poster via Rope of Silicon. I’ve also included the first TV spot for the film via First Showing. Check them both out below.

Synopsis:

The story of Oakland A’s general manager Billy Beane’s successful attempt to put together a baseball club on a budget by employing computer-generated analysis to draft his players.

Moneyball hits theaters on September 23, 2011.

We posted some new images today, but we also have the first poster for James McTeigue‘s The Raven featuring John Cusack and Luke Evans, which hits theaters March 9th, 2012. The poster certainly catches the eye and makes me look forward to what McTeigue will do here. Check it out below via The Playlist.

In this gritty thriller, Edgar Allan Poe (John Cusack, Being John Malkovich) joins forces with a young Baltimore detective (Luke Evans, Immortals) to hunt down a mad serial killer who’s using Poe’s own works as the basis in a string of brutal murders. Directed by James McTeigue (V for Vendetta, Ninja Assassin), the film also stars Alice Eve (Sex and the City 2), Brendan Gleeson (In Bruges) and Oliver Jackson-Cohen (Faster).

When a mother and daughter are found brutally murdered in 19th century Baltimore, Detective Emmett Fields (Luke Evans) makes a startling discovery: the crime resembles a fictional murder described in gory detail in the local newspaper—part of a collection of stories penned by struggling writer and social pariah Edgar Allan Poe. But even as Poe is questioned by police, another grisly murder occurs, also inspired by a popular Poe story.

Realizing a serial killer is on the loose using Poe’s writings as the backdrop for his bloody rampage, Fields enlists the author’s help in stopping the attacks. But when it appears someone close to Poe may become the murderer’s next victim, the stakes become even higher and the inventor of the detective story calls on his own powers of deduction to try to solve the case before it’s too late.

Which film are you most looking forward to? Which poster is better?
