I've never been a big fan of the films of hermetic indie filmmaker Hal Hartley, even though he was once considered one of a handful of young trailblazing auteurs back in the late 80s/early 90s, along with the likes of Gus Van Sant, Todd Haynes and others, who were producing esoteric, smart, cheaply-made arty films that appealed to a small, tightly-knit, proud subculture of young (mostly white) film lovers; films that defined his auteurist style, like The Unbelievable Truth and Trust, which featured some of the earliest performances by actors like Eddie Falco, and Henry Fool years later.

I'm not sure what to make of this first official poster for the film. They should have used the image of Denzel Washington (from the movie) I posted earlier today, in which he looks like he's about to split whoever he's looking at into several chunks of flesh. Now that's a strong image. That along with the tagline on this poster ("No One Is Safe") would have resonated more with me. Not this thing...

I wonder if Michael Ealy will get to romance Kate Beckinsale’s "Selene"... no? Yeah, you're probably right :) I'd settle for him just surviving until the end of the film.
