If you’ve been following movies anytime since 2008, then you’re probably acutely aware of what Robert Pattinson’s eyes look like—especially if you’re a frequent shopper at Walmart. Well, guess what? They’re back.
The promotional poster for “Mission: Blacklist” was released by Embankment Films. The image casts a shadow around Pattinson’s face only revealing his glowing peepers. The tagline for the film stands out in white among an assortment of letters and reads, “In a world of lies, only one man can see the truth.” Standing out towards the bottom of the poster is the name Saddam Hussein.
Check out the full poster and read more about the film after the cut, and thanks to Mission Blacklist Film for the heads up!
Based on a true story, the film is an adaptation of Eric Maddox’s book “Mission: Black List #1: The Inside Story of the Search for Saddam Hussein—As Told by the Soldier Who Masterminded His Capture.” It recounts the tale of the man who played a vital part in the capture of terrorist Saddam Hussein.
The film is set to be sold at the 2012 Cannes Film Festival this month and was described by the film’s producer Ross M. Dinerstein as “a gripping, edge-of-your-seat thriller.”
He told The Baltimore Sun, “I have been inspired by Robert and [director] Jean-Stephane’s dedication to tell this story in the most authentic way possible.”
