  3. These are all great posters, very eye-catching. Are you (or the studio, presumably) going to make them available to buy?

  4. God damn right he will.

  5. must say — it’s charming to see you so obviously excited about this film thing.

  7. Mine too, Damien. Happy birthday!

  8. Well, Nelson Mandela is a nice old man with a history of (justifiable acts of) violence. Fits the bill I’d say.

  9. Matt: Thanks, and you too!

  10. I’m embarrassed. I laughed for a full minute before I realized this wasn’t a spoof poster for an action film based on his character from “The Shawshank Redemption”.
