new LAW ABIDING CITIZEN posters featuring 'The Look'

If Fox is changing Wichita to Knight & Day, can I suggest a new title for Law Abiding Citizen, even though it comes out in three days? Well I'm gonna anyway. They should change the title to Ruffled Eyebrows. Because every poster has featured Jamie Foxx with his signature "worried" look, and Gerard Butler in his "Jamie Foxx worried look". That look is contagious... and so is the facial hair.

Here are two brand new posters from Empire featuring the stars sporting the 2009 version of "Blue Steel"... or was it "Magnum?" Either way, Foxx has as many "different" looks as Zoolander. Don't get me wrong. The guy is a good comedian. And I enjoyed him in roles where he truly transforms, like Ray and The Soloist. But when he plays it straight... it's a drag to watch.

Check out the posters and let us know what you think! Click image's for full size.

Clyde Shelton (Gerard Butler) is an upstanding family man whose wife and daughter are brutally murdered during a home invasion. When the killers are caught, Nick Rice (Jamie Foxx), a hotshot young Philadelphia prosecutor, is assigned to the case. Over his objections, Nick is forced by his boss to offer one of the suspects a light sentence in exchange for testifying against his accomplice. Fast forward ten years. The man who got away with murder is found dead and Clyde Shelton coolly admits his guilt. Then he issues a warning to Nick: Either fix the flawed justice system that failed his family, or key players in the trial will die. Soon Shelton follows through on his threats, orchestrating from his jail cell a string of spectacularly diabolical assassinations that can be neither predicted nor prevented. Philadelphia is gripped with fear as Shelton’s high-profile targets are slain one after another and the authorities are powerless to halt his reign of terror. Only Nick can stop the killing, and to do so he must outwit this brilliant sociopath in a harrowing contest of wills in which even the smallest misstep means death. With his own family now in Shelton’s crosshairs, Nick finds himself in a desperate race against time facing a deadly adversary who seems always to be one step ahead.

Law Abiding Citizen hits this Friday in the States, and Nov. 27th in the UK.
