Violet & Daisy Saoirse Ronan Alexis Bledel

The new “Violet & Daisy” poster has landed and it is quite a doozy, with a strikingly bold concatenation of lollipops and guns setting an eye-popping tone for the latest from “Precious” writer Geoffrey Fletcher.

 

In his directorial debut, Fletcher tackles “a candy-colored crime story about two teen girl killers and their latest target.” As we described in our review, Fletcher has deftly cast two talented doll-faced actresses (Alexis Bledel and Saoirse Ronan) as his teenage assassins, with James Gandolfini as the surprising target alongside solid support from Danny Trejo and Marianne Jean-Baptiste. The poster looks like it would make for a “Lolita”-aesthetic shoot ‘em up, but Ronan revealed that although the premise sounds very action-packed, “the film is a black comedy and not an action film at all.” Fletcher said he considers it a coming-of-age story and “a teen assassin fable.” Either way this latest poster has certainly got our attention.

“Violet & Daisy” arrives in theaters this June.
