Alexandre Desplat Replaces Alberto Iglesias As Film's ComposerWhile it may seem like heavier fare, "God of Carnage," the Tony-winning play by Yasmina Reza which Roman Polanski's "Carnage" is based on, is actually a comedy first, with some dramatic elements dashed in. In fact, one of the film's stars, Kate Winslet, recently revealed that the work is so riotously funny that during a performance of the play on Broadway in 2009, she "actually peed my pants, and not just once." Not exactly what we were expecting but it's definitely something we can get on board with.

Alexandre Desplat Replaces Alberto Iglesias As Film's Composer



While it may seem like heavier fare, "God of Carnage," the Tony-winning play by Yasmina Reza which Roman Polanski's "Carnage" is based on, is actually a comedy first, with some dramatic elements dashed in. In fact, one of the film's stars, Kate Winslet, recently revealed that the work is so riotously funny that during a performance of the play on Broadway in 2009, she "actually peed my pants, and not just once." Not exactly what we were expecting but it's definitely something we can get on board with.

In light of this new information, the newly unveiled international poster makes a lot more sense, boasting a vibrant color scheme and showcasing the complete range of emotions of our leading thespians: Jodie Foster and John C. Reilly, who star as one of two "sets of Brooklyn parents who try — and fail — to be civil to one another after their tween sons get into a playground fight." Winslet and Christoph Waltz play the other couple with the quartet taking on roles portrayed by numerous acclaimed actors on the many interpretations of Reza's play on stage -- Jeff Daniels, Hope Davis, James Gandolfini and Marcia Gay Harden starred in a recent Broadway version.

Another piece of news the poster reveals is the fact Pedro Almodovar's regular collaborator, Alberto Iglesias, who was previously reported to the composer for "Carnage," has been replaced by Frenchman Alexandre Desplat, who has already seen his work on screen this year with "The Tree of Life" and "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows - Part 2" and will return once again with George Clooney's "The Ides of March" later this year.

A handful of new images, meanwhile, have also been unveiled for highly anticipated "Carnage," which will premiere at the Venice Film Festival before opening the New York Film Festival. Sony Pictures Classic are yet to announce a release date but rest assured, an assault on awards season is likely being plotted. [IMPAwards/RopeOfSilicon/Allocine]
