"Invictus" Poster

By Chase Kahn

Clint Eastwood's Invictus (Warner Brothers, 12.11.09), the Nelson Mandela biopic starring Morgan Freeman and Matt Damon, has a poster and it pretty much sucks. It screams of faux-inspirational hooplah with Morgan Freeman's profile, engulfed in a blinding light as if to represent a biblical figure of some sort, looks phony. After Gran Torino was the surprise hit of January last year, why not slap his name all over it? Instead, he's relegated to a Tom Hooper or a Brad Anderson.
