How about a little poster round-up to celebrate Friday? Today we’ve got a new one-sheet for Ang Lee‘s Life of Pi, which puts the main tiger at the forefront in a warm-tinted design. It also adds the new tagline, “Believe the Unbelievable.” Set to premiere at the New York Film Festival, this journey of a boy and his tiger stars newcomer Suraj Sharma as well as Gérard Depardieu, Irrfan Khan and Tabu.
We’ve also got two alternate posters, first up one for Robert Lorenz‘s baseball drama Trouble With the Curve. The last poster featured just Clint Eastwood, looking onward to the baseball field from the sideline, but now his supporting actors are added in the story of a baseball scout (Eastwood) tasked with looking at a hot young prospect. His daughter (Amy Adams) comes along for the trip, but it’s only when she meets a scouting rival (Justin Timberlake) that conflicts and various emotions arise.
Lastly, we’ve got another theatrical poster for director Mads Brügger‘s controversial film The Ambassador. The Lars von Trier-produced documentary sees Brügger as a European businessman who actually gets entangled in dangerous Central African Republic commerce and politics, and forms a genre of ”performative journalism.” Drafthouse Films has the film and this slick poster sees our star riding high on a horse. Check out the trio of posters below thanks to HeyUGuys, IMPAwards and Movies.com.
The Ambassador is now on VOD and arrives in theaters at the end of the month, while Trouble with the Curve arrives in September and Life of Pi in November.
