Poster for Angelina Jolie's IN THE LAND OF BLOOD AND HONEY

FilmDistrict has released the first poster for Angelina Jolie’s directorial debut, In The Land of Blood and Honey, which arrives in theaters on December 23rd. Jolie wrote the film that stars Zana Marjanović, Goran Kostić, Rade Šerbedžija, Vanesa Glodjo and Nikola Djurićko.

Here is the synopsis:

Set against the backdrop of the Bosnian War that tore the Balkan region apart in the 1990s, In the Land of Blood and Honey tells the story of Danijel (Kostić) and Ajla (Marjanović), two people from different sides of a brutal ethnic conflict. Danijel, a soldier fighting for the Serbs, and Ajla, a Bosnian held captive in the camp he oversees, knew each other before the war, and could have found love with each other. But as the armed conflict takes hold of their lives, their relationship grows darker, their motives and connection to one another ambiguous, their allegiances uncertain. "In the Land of Blood and Honey" portrays the incredible emotional, moral and physical toll that the war exerts both on individuals and people as a whole, and the terrible consequences that stem from the lack of political will to intervene in a society stricken with conflict.

The story sounds pretty cool, but I am not sure how it will be received by mainstream audiences. Check out the full size poster below and share your thoughts:
