Do you remember back in the day? Back when Vin Diesel was making films like Pitch Black and The Chronicles of Riddick? Back then he was on the verge of being cool with the fanboy population. Then he made films like xXx and The Pacifier and we all lost hope. Still, the thought alone of Diesel headlining a Babylon A.D. flick was enough to pique the interest of some. But then again, once you combine the fact that there were tons of production problems with the following poster, it’s back to the world of pain and frustration . Take a look at the new poster below, courtesy of First Showing’s ShowEast coverage.
Plot Synopsis: Veteran-turned-mercenary Thoorop (Diesel) takes the high-risk job of escorting a woman from Russia to China. Little does he know that she is host to an organism that a cult wants to harvest in order to produce a genetically modified Messiah.
Babylon A.D. is set for release on February 29, 2008.
