Lawless remains one of my five most anticipated films of the Summer thanks to the involvement of director John Hillcoat (The Proposition, The Road) and screenwriter Nick Cave (of The Bad Seeds fame), but I have yet to be fully won over by the trailer or these ridiculous character banners. What is with Labeouf's posturing in the above image? I want to punch him in the face. And Guy Pearce's head below looks friggin' huge! And Gary Oldman has a wonky crook to his neck. Yeah, not at all impressed by these posters. But man, I really want to love this movie and I'm hoping it's as brutal to its characters as the screenplays to The Proposition and The Road were.
