Universal has debuted three new character banners for Michael Mann's Public Enemies - one for Johnny Depp, Marion Cotillard, and Christian Bale. We haven't seen much new from this since we debuted the first poster and the official trailer back in March. It's great to see some new artwork from this, but they're not too amazing, just new manipulations of the same photos we've seen plenty of times previously. I'm looking forward to Public Enemies, certainly, but it's not anything I'm overly excited about. It'll be good, but I doubt it'll end up being one of my favorite movies of the summer, and I'm not sure why. What do you think?
Public Enemies is directed by Michael Mann, of Heat, Ali, Collateral, and Miami Vice previously. The screenplay is based on Bryan Burrough's book of the same name and was adapted by Ronan Bennett (A Further Gesture). Later, Michael Mann and Ann Biderman (Copycat, Primal Fear) wrote a revised screenplay before shooting. The film has an all star cast made up of Johnny Depp, Christian Bale, Channing Tatum, Giovanni Ribisi, David Wenham, Leelee Sobieski, Marion Cotillard, and Billy Crudup as J. Edgar Hoover. Universal will be bringing Public Enemies to theaters everywhere on July 1st this summer.
