Earlier this week, (yesterday to be exact) the first trailer was released for George Tillman Jr.’s action flick, Faster. The film stars Dwayne Johnson as an ex-con hellbent on revenge who doesn’t care whose ass he has to kick or kill to get justice. There’s nothing really original about the premise, and the trailer wasn’t that ground breaking but they’ve taken it a step too far. The first teaser poster has been released and it makes the film look like a rip-off of 2002′s XXX. If you think I’m exaggerating, take a look…

Here’s the full poster for Faster:

Here’s the old poster for XXX:

Hmm, just sayin’.

Faster centers on an ex-con hell bent on avenging his brother’s death. Johnson plays a character named Driver, while Billy Bob Thornton stars as a veteran cop who trails him as he races to settle with those responsible for his brother’s murder. Also in the mix is Killer, an egocentric hitman who’s after Driver. The film also features Maggie Grace, Moon Bloodgood, and Carla Gugino.

Isn’t it also convenient that both Johnson and Vin Diesel will co-star in the upcoming Fast and the Furious sequel Fast Five?

What do you think of the teaser poster for Faster? Do you notice the similarities?
