Here is the newest poster for The Raven, thanks to Entertainment Weekly (via Comingsoon). James McTiegue directed the period thriller that stars John Cusack, Luke Evans, Alice Eve, Brendan Gleeson, and Oliver Jackson-Cohen.
Here is the synopsis:
In the film, Edgar Allen Poe (Cusack) joins forces with a young Baltimore detective (Evans) to hunt down a mad serial killer who's using Poe's own works as the basis in a string of brutal murders.
Relativity Media announced yesterday that the release date has been pushed back from March 9th to April 27th. The concept is pretty cool for this film, but I can't help but think we have seen it done before. I do like the dark tone and the period costumes, but for now I am just kind of meh on The Raven. At least the poster above is pretty cool.
What are your thoughts?
