Another brief update coming in for the holiday weekend but this time it is for The Weinstein Co's upcoming spy adventure Stormbreaker.
Only last week did we post the first poster for the film (here) and now our good buddy 'RonJon' has sent over what looks to be a second, more detailed, version.
Stormbreaker Movie Poster
Alex Rider (Alex Pettyfer) is a normal teenager who lives with his uncle, a nondescript bank manager... or so it seems, until Uncle Ian Rider (Ewan McGregor) dies in mysterious circumstances. Alex discovers his uncle was in face a spy and has been murdered by Yassen Gregorovich (Damian Lewis), one of the most dangerous assassins in the world. Recruited by Mr Blunt (Bill Nighy) and Mrs Jones (Sophie Okonedo) of the Special Operations Division of MI6, the schoolboy realizes that by encouraging his hobbies his uncle has thoroughly prepared him for a career in espionage. Linguist, scuba diver, mountaineer, crack shot and martial arts expert, Alex has all the attributes to make the perfect teenage superspy. Armed with these and his own set of special gadgets, he embarks on his first mission.
The latest poster for Stormbreaker makes it a point to show off some of the major names involved in the cast and the fact that the film is targeted at young adults instead of just the young in general. Definitely an improvement over the first version.
Now I am back to deciphering the trailers to tell whether this film is going to be cool or just another teenie-bopper.
Stormbreaker comes to theatres on August 18th, 2006.
