An international one sheet has been released for the upcoming sci-fi thriller Limitless, which stars Bradley Cooper and Robert De Niro. At first glance it looks as if both actors have been attacked by the airbrush monster, but don’t take our word for it. You be the judge. The film is directed by Neil Burger and based on a novel written by Alan Glynn. Check out the poster below…
Neither one of the men in the poster are bad looking, so why are they airbrushed beyond recognition? Aside from that, there seems to be a heavy emphasis on the “fast life,” which is represented by the busy intersection behind Cooper and De Niro. If you’re not familiar with the film’s premise, you can view the official synopsis below. It explains a lot about the poster and how it represents the story.
Bradley Cooper and Robert De Niro star in Limitless, a paranoia-fueled action thriller about an unpublished writer whose life is transformed by a top-secret smart drug that allows him to use 100% of his brain and become a perfect version of himself. His enhanced abilities soon attract shadowy forces that threaten his new life in this darkly comic and provocative film.
Limitless opens in theaters on March 18th.
