Here’s another poster for Carnage, the upcoming play adaptation by Roman Polanski that stars Jodie Foster, John C. Reilly, Christoph Waltz, and Kate Winslet. It’s not as bright as the previous Carnage poster, but what it lacks in color it makes up for with subtlety.
This poster basically takes its Oscar-winning and/or nominated actors and lays them out, showing how undeniable this Polanski (also an Oscar winner) film will be during this year’s awards season. How could you not be interested in a film with Foster, Reilly, Waltz, and Winslet?
While Carnage is a comedy and thus slightly less likely to receive Oscar nominations, I still can’t help but hope that it’ll excel enough for at least one of the actors to get a nod. My favorite Austrian, Christoph Waltz, perhaps?
The film will have a limited release starting on December 16, and I’m definitely hoping it gets to a theater near me.
Each trailer for Carnage so far has been a glorious blend of comedy, darkness, and good-looking actors, which is really all I need.
