‘The Conspirator’ Poster Promises A Political Thriller Filled With Dread And Deception

With at least two different Abraham Lincoln films coming down the pipeline, it’s understandable if the one featuring blood-sucking monsters and heavily armed vampire hunters is the one that catches your interest.

But you can keep your enthusiasm for “Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter” firmly intact while still carving out room for “The Conspirator.” James McAvoy and Robin Wright star in the Robert Redford-directed period piece that examines the fallout of President Lincoln’s assassination, unraveling a highly complicated plot filled with danger and deception at every turn.

If that’s not enough to convince you, then maybe what you need is something a bit more visual. Luckily, we’ve got you covered on that – after the jump, check out the official poster for “The Conspirator.”

The poster, which premiered on IMPA, is simple and to the point: this movie is firmly rooted in the death of one of the most iconic and beloved figures in all of American history. And as the tag line so deftly informs us: “One bullet killed the President, but not one man.” Between that chilling premise and the deeply damaged bust at the center of the image, the tone for “The Conspirator” is perfectly clear – vampires or no vampires, this is a dark film that tackles dark subject matter. The faint of heart need not apply.
