Revealed: The Title Art for ‘RED’

Moments ago, I unleashed the first of several reports from my visit to the set of RED, the film adaptation of the popular Warren Ellis comic about an aging CIA assassin who must get back into his old world after he becomes the target of an assassination. I’m confident that if you stick with me over the next 6 months in between now and the time the film hits theaters in October, you will know everything you need to know in order to be prepared to see this film. And while I’m not ready to share it all, I do have plenty of good stuff in my first piece about how the film will differ from the comic book.

In addition to rolling out my impressions from the set, Summit Entertainment has also begun rolling some marketing materials for the film. Today we’ve got your first look at the film’s title art. Fans of the book will recognize the vertical nature of the logo, which references the vertical nature of the book’s 3-panel cover. I’ve included both above, for your meticulous inspection.

I’ve also included the high resolution version of the title art below. Just click to enlarge. Simple, gritty and ready — just like the film’s title character — to kill a mothertrucker or two.
