People magazine released the first movie poster of Channing Tatumâ€™s latest film â€˜Foxcatcherâ€™.
Although the online buzz is that the poster sucks â€“ I think itâ€™s I-ight.Â The film was premiered at this yearâ€™s Cannes film festival and had glowing reviews so I was surprised to hear that the poster was not well liked.
A French Teaser poster was released earlier this year and now we are seeing the first US marketing poster.Â Personally I kind of like it, itâ€™s better than â€œi-ightâ€.Â Just in time for the 4th of July, the poster shows a menacing Channing Tatum in front of a worn, well saluted American flag back dropâ€¦.and yes the US will compete in the world cup today as well.Â Maybe thatâ€™s why this poster works for me, Iâ€™m filling up with American prideâ€¦..*sniff*, *sniff*
Foxcatcher will show us the serious sides of not only Channing Tatum but also Steve Carell.Â Carell plays millionaire DuPont in the film and if both Carell and Tatum appear to look weird itâ€™s because they are both wearing prosthetic make up.
In an interview with People magazine Tatum said that this was not a fun movie,
“It was not a fun experience at all, It was grueling, and it was painful, but it was worth it.”
Here is the teaser trailer for the film and the full sized US Poster and the previously release French poster below.
