With the release now imminent, Empire have a great new UK quad poster to share with us, featuring the film’s four principals front and centre, twice. So we get to see Jodie Foster, John C. Reilly, Kate Winslet, and Christoph Waltz, each doubled up.
“A showdown between two kids: about eleven, in a local playground. Swollen lips, broken teeth… Now the parents of the “victim” have invited the parents of the “bully” to their apartment to sort it out. Cordial banter gradually develops a razor-sharp edge as all four parents reveal their laughable contradictions and grotesque prejudices. None of them will escape the ensuing carnage.”
Co-written by Polanski and Yasmina Reza, based on her original play, Le Dieu du Carnage, the film has received mostly positive reviews, and received two Golden Globe nominations, as well as winning Polanski the Little Golden Lion at Venice last year.
Carnage will be out in UK cinemas on 3rd February. The film has had its Oscar-qualifying run in the US already, and has been to a number of European countries already as well, and now we’re very close to getting to see it too. Here’s the new UK quad poster to whet your appetites. As usual, click to enlarge.
