The Raven's First Poster Is Written In Blood

The Raven's First Poster Is Written In Blood

John Cusack is playing Edgar Allan Poe and, much as I loved Hot Tub Time Machine, at this point in his career it’s probably a good idea. The movie he’s doing it in is called The Raven and it’s a mystery-thriller in which the famously bummed out poet is enlisted by the police to hunt down a serial killer.

The movie’s first poster has arrived and while it doesn’t actually feature Cusack’s famous face (plenty of images showing him in full Edgar Allan Poe costume here) it’s still incredibly cool. Click the image below to see it in high-res.

Lots of poster debuts today.  Columbia released a simple, beautiful poster for Moneyball, which stands among my most anticipated movies of the fall.  Relativity followed up on the new images from their movies that will appear at Comic-Con — Haywire, The Raven, Shark Night 3D, and Immortals — with the first posters for Haywire and The Raven.  (Immortals and Shark Night were posterized in previous months.)  Lastly, Marvel uploaded two pieces of concept art tied to The Avengers; the Iron Man poster lists the May 2012 release, the Captain America poster gives their state: “Assembled.”
See all the posters after the break.

Relativity has released a ton of new images from the films that will appear at Comic-Con 2011.  There’s Immortals, the stylized ancient Greek epic led by Henry Cavill, the man who will be Superman.  There’s The Raven, a thriller starring John Cusack as Edgar Allan Poe.  There’s Shark Night 3D, in which a shark feasts on college students.  And finally, there’s Haywire, the spy thriller Steven Soderbergh built around MMA fighter Gina Carano.
Hit the jump for all the images, plus official synopses, full cast lists, and release dates. http://collider.com/immortals-images-shark-knight-3d-images-haywire/103741/
