We now have an EAGLE EYE poster to stare at!

Ahoy, squirts! Quint here. DDOG came through with a heads up to the poster for the upcoming thriller from DJ Caruso called EAGLE EYE, starring the purty Shia LaBeouf and the even purtier Michelle Monaghan. I visited the set earlier this year and Harry just recently saw the first reel. I can't speak to the script, but everything I saw action-wise and performance-wise was top shelf stuff and Harry seems to love the cut footage he saw. Now the poster's out and it's a weird one. I don't know how I feel about it, but knowing some of the twists and turns of the movie, I can say that it's a rather dull poster compared to what happens. That said, I still kinda dig the multiple Shias and Michelles... just maybe not the layout... something's not hitting me completely for some reason. Anyway, here it is! Make sure to click if you want the big version!

    Not every movie

    by dvdhound79

    Lends well to advertising ala poster. I like the premise of the movie, but as I imagined, the poster would be weak. What can you say about a man on the run movie without having the man running on the poster?

    by Alfred_Packer

    Eagle Eye looks fine, but lets get the Indy 5 ball rolling (no pun intended). 3/4 of a billion dollars, I think thats calls for two more films with Indy, and what the hey, Mutt can come along too, thats just fine.

    I went out of my way to talk up Eagle Eye in the talkback of Harry's first-reel review and now this poster shows up DOA. It's truly awful. Was this done inhouse by the studio's marketing team? Or was it farmed out. Either way, it's hacktastic. A guy with Photoshop and ten minutes could turn out a better poster than this. How many god damn Shia heads do I need. It's not like the kid's Zac Efron!

    Shia is not gay

    by Rommel Catuncan

    Sure he had a threesome sort of thing going on with Bumblebee and Megan at the end of Transformers but we all do that kind of thing when we're in college. Who hasn't? I can't tell you how many times couples start making out when they're on me.

    by BadMrWonka

    you'll get laid eventually...shut up...<p>for all the hate Shia gets here, there are far worse actors to get "do whatever you want in whatever movie you want" status for a couple years...<p>I mean shit, he had me convinced for the first 10 minutes that Transformers might be good! the shit in the classroom was hilarious.<p> because he's youngish looking and (sorry to go there) pretty Jewish looking, everyone hates. if not, he would be the golden boy that got Indy 4 and Transformers...even though both sucked dick, he was fine in both, so step off...

  • Honestly, is it really that terrible? Hell no. Can't wait for this flick.

    by Darth Valinorean

    ... don't get me wrong.. I like his work a lot and I think he has a future ahead of him that we are all going to enjoy... but somehow I feel Shia can do no wrong and a little too much love on AICN .. just 1 man's opinion who is jet lagged and running on no coffee.. so apologies if I offend any fan boys

    You're right. Why are we kissing up to Shia? Fuck Hollywood and millionaire actors. Giant fighting robots say nothing to me about my life. I've been here all day because I have the flu and it's Shia this and Shia that and we're kissing Hollywood ass while ducking down in our cubicles in case our boss sees us typing "I heart Shia" on our computers. All the while Shia's rolling around with Megan Fox and driving sportscars for Michael Fucking Bay and getting his people to send more promotional stuff to AICN so we can spend our hourly wages on this Nick of Time movie. No thank you, Shia. No thank you.

    They should replace Monaghan with Shia's twin

    by SpencerTrilby

    The more I see about this movie, the more it looks like that terrific Tony Scott flick starring Will Smith. Luckily for those who didn't make the connection yet, the poster is totally derivative from said 10 years old movie. <p> At least, Enemy of the state had the decency to come out 25 years after The Conversation - which it ripped off largely. Is that Dreamworks' way to be ahead of its time?

  • July 15, 2008, 9:04 a.m. CST

    I read somewhere...

    by NiceGuyEddie19

    That on the set of TF:ROTF Shia has been chain smoking, acting bitchy, and telling fans who want photos with him to piss off. Maybe he's a douche, who knows? But I don't get that from him onscreen. And I don't see anything bad about the poster. It's standard, nothing impressive or particularly shitty.

    I guess I still can't get over his Disney Channel days. This plot sounds like The Matrix office scene, with Morpheus giving Keanu instructions over the phone, expanded to feature length. I did enjoy Disturbia as a passable popcorn thriller (much better than the similar timed Vacancy), so I'll at least give this a looksee on video.

    It's not hard to get why Shia is disliked

    by Wants Vaders Executor

    It's because Spielberg pushes him on the fastline by getting him in tons of movies too fast. I have nothing against young actors getting praise. I like Leonardo DiCaprio and Josh Hartnett, for example. Even in Titanic/Pearl Harbor, when it was "in" to trash them. But I "discovered" them (for me) in Gilbert Grape/The Faculty. Nice, small movies. And then they went over the years and slowly but surely got bigger. At least that's my impression. Shia on the other hand does everything too fast. Not just "acting like he's grown up" now with the "beard" and shit. He should take his time with his career, doing less movies but playing better characters and thereby get the audience to accept him as a fine actor and star who deserved it. Right now it just feels pushed down our throats too much. It's not even the problem that I despise Shia in general. Have you seen Bobby? He also has a role there, and it's the one movie where I like him in. So don't let yourself be pushed by Spielberg Shia, shift down a gear and you will soon be liked by most.

    I agree with you completely. I hate when Hollywood pushes "the next big thing", with movie after movie over a short amount of time. The same thing happened with Ryan Phillipe and Rachel McAdams a few years back. Regardless of talent, you think "Geez, them again?"

    by BurgerKing

    Well Shia was on Family Channel for YEARS before anyone knew his name, I watched that show, it was the shit. Then he did have roles in movies like Holes and like you said, Bobby. So he isn't just being pushed out there, he has steadily grown into superstardom and now that he is there, why not capitalize on it? <p> Obviously, geeks are only a very small small part of the movie going audience (see Snakes on a Plane box office) and therefore they bickering about Shia falls on deaf ears at studios, the main public loves him and the reason why he keeps making big movies, and why those big movies keep making money is (in part) due to the audience responding positively to him. I don't have any problem with him, I think he's got a lot of charisma and energy, no nothing Oscar worthy down the pipe yet, or probably ever, but who cares. <p> I still think that geeks are just mad because he got to be in both Transformers and Indiana Jones and most geeks here probably had their first wet dream about doing that, therefore, they hold a life long grudge now. That and he bones hot chicks and they don't.

    Concerning "the next big thing"

    by Wants Vaders Executor

    Today I read that the music industry constantly tries to establish "newcomers", because newcomers obviously don't demand those high salaries/percentages of sales like established stars like madonna and justin timberlake do. maybe its the same in Hollywood? They push Shia (for example) as long as he doesn't demand the really fat cheques, and when he does they move on to the next "newcomer" and drop Shia. Publish things like drug abuse and sex scandals about him until he drops in bankability (if thats actually proper english) and gets lucrative again.

  • July 15, 2008, 5:24 p.m. CST

    by Wants Vaders Executor

    re Family Channel, my problem is I'm not from the US and only knew Shia since Transformers. So if he has grown slowly on TV, I didn't notice it. May be I'm beeing too fast in judging him (just like I was too fast accusing Lucas of copying skulls yesterday). But regardless of that, I still think that Shia, his acting skills and his face, doesn't "mature" fast enough in comparison to how fast the list grows in how many movies he's been in. Sorry if somebody doesn't get what I mean. Plus, growing or not, executive producing a movie with 22 seems a little bit fast. Hard to not get over your head, don't you think?
