Dennis Quaid, Adrianne Palicki, Paul Bettany, Lucas Black, Tyrese Gibson and Kevin Durand each gets to be the main attraction in the new one-sheets for Scott Charles Stewart's fantasy thriller.
In its promotion effort, "Legion" unleashes six new character banners through Joblo. Each of the posters highlights on some of the main characters, namely Dennis Quaid's Bob Hanson, Adrianne Palicki's Charlie, Paul Bettany's the archangel Michael, Lucas Black's Jeep Hanson, Tyrese Gibson's Kyle Williams and Kevin Durand's the archangel Gabriel.
While the fresh banners are separate pieces of art, each of them contains partial biblical quotation of Matthew 13:49. Hence, if combined together in the correct order, they will spell out, "So it will be at the end of the age the angels will come forth to take out the wicked and throw them into the furnace of fire."
"Legion" takes place after God loses faith in humanity. As He sends his legion of angels to bring on the Apocalypse, the archangel Michael comes to stand between mankind and the apocalypse. Defending humanity's only hope, Michael leads a group of strangers who must protect a woman who is pregnant with Christ in his second coming.
The apocalypse themed fantasy thriller is based on a script originally written by Peter Schink and re-written by director Scott Charles Stewart. It was filmed in New Mexico and has Charles S. Dutton, Kate Walsh and Willa Holland among the cast. Screen Gems eyes to release this film in theaters across the U.S. on January 22, 2010.
