Matthew McConaughey is back to wearing clothes again for his upcoming movie The Lincoln Lawyer. Back in November the first trailer for the film debuted and it showed McConaughey as an unconventional counselor who doesn’t have a problem with getting his hands dirty for his clients. The first teaser poster for the movie shows the actor and his Lincoln, against the setting of a questionable neighborhood. Take a look…

Are we the only ones who notice the terrible airbrushing in this poster? It reminds us of the work they did on the one sheet for the 2006 film Harsh Times. It’s supposed to be gritty and dangerous but it comes across as very cheap looking.


Mickey Haller (McConaughey) is a Los Angeles criminal defense attorney who operates out of the back of his Lincoln sedan.  Haller has spent most of his career defending garden-variety criminals, until he lands the case of his career: defending Louis Roulet (Ryan Phillippe), a Beverly Hills playboy accused of rape and attempted murder.  But the seemingly straightforward case suddenly develops into a deadly game of survival for Haller.

The Lincoln Lawyer opens in theaters everywhere on March 18, 2011.
