New Posters For 127 Hours, Casino Jack, The King’s Speech and London Boulevard

These are all films I cannot wait to see. Especially London Boulevard, the directorial debut of William Monahan, who won an Academy Award for his adapted screenplay of 2006’s The Departed.

127 Hours goes into general release in the United States today, Casino Jack opens on December 1st in the United States, The King’s Speech opens on November 26th in the United States, London Boulevard opens in the UK on November 26th.

  1. Gah this it the second time I’ve seen that King’s Speech poster and it doesn’t look any better. I’m surprised the movie got an R rating, but I suppose that couldn’t be helped (though I heard they’re going to file an appeal).

    Liking the 127 Hours poster though.

    • I read that The King’s Speech got an R rating because of one scene where Firth says the F-word like 40 times or something, as part of his therapy and that the director feels the scene is integral to the plot and will not cut it. But really, the MPAA is such a jerk when it comes to their ratings, especially in the last ten or so years. For example, Titanic is PG-13, right? Even though you have a good minute or more close-up of Kate Winslet’s tits. But Lost In Translation got an R rating for about 30 seconds of stripper tits, tits that were NEVER focused on, just kind of in the background. That is some shit if I do say so myself. It’s just a pity a film’s rating can sometimes hurt its chances at the box office and that the box office can hurt a film’s chance at awards season. Though, The King’s Speech has the Weinsteins behind it, so I’m sure it’ll still do fine come Oscar-time.

  2. I can’t wait for these either, although I’m more excited for Last Night than London Boulevard.
