Today we’ve received some exclusive new posters for a little project that we’ve been keeping an eye on for a while now, the noir road trip thriller Dark Country from first time director Thomas Jane (The Punisher, HBO’s Hung). Originally slated as a 3D theatrical release, it will now go straight to DVD on October 6th. And after seeing the official trailer that we posted back in July, I can’t tell why it’s not being released in theaters — but alas, we’ll take it any way we can get it. And we aren’t going to let the direct-to-DVD stereotype scare us off, as the film has a very unique and cool feel to it.
The film stars Jane and Lauren German (Hostel: Part II) as a couple traveling through the desert from Las Vegas to California who come upon a mysterious stranger. After almost killing the stranger, they pick him up and begin their journey into darkness. The film also stars Ron Perlman (Hellboy, Sons of Anarchy).
Check out the two new posters below, one that was designed by Tom Jane and friends (I have a sneaking feeling that production designer and notable bearded-artist Tim Bradstreet had a hand in this) and another that features Jane’s co-star Lauren German in a missing persons ad (click either of the posters to enlarge). I’ve also attached the film’s trailer, for those who have not seen it.
Dark Country is on DVD October 6th.
