Gerard Butler: 'Law Abiding Citizen' Poster!

Check out Jamie Foxx and Gerard Butler in these two new movie posters from Law Abiding Citizen, in theaters October 16th.

Synopsis: Clyde Shelton (Butler) is an upstanding family man whose wife and daughter are brutally murdered during a home invasion. When the killers are caught, Nick Rice (Foxx), a hotshot young Philadelphia prosecutor, is assigned to the case. Over his objections, Nick is forced by his boss to offer one of the suspects a light sentence in exchange for testifying against his accomplice. — Fast forward ten years — The man who got away with murder is found dead and Clyde Shelton coolly admits his guilt. Then he issues a warning to Nick: Either fix the flawed justice system that failed his family, or key players in the trial will die.

Hot posters!!! THE SYSTEM MUST PAY.

    Great poster!

    Looks like a great movie.

  • bailey

    thanks for finally posting these.


  • Hotness overload

    The posters look a little like Scarlett Johannsson’s movie……..I don’t remember the name of it, if anyone remembers? Anyway, it sounds quite good.

  • n.o.l.a

    The Spirit is the movie you are thinking of. I’ll wait for cable.

  • Not impressed by JA

    I like the posters !

  • LAC rules

    The posters have a retro feel to them. G’s eyes are bit weird looking tho. This is G’s debut as a producer so I wish him big success. In general I am not a big movie night person, but with G’s movies it has become more than just going to a movie; it’s to show my support like going to the games of my favorite sport teams/athletes. I am sure a lot of G’s fans feel the same way. Besides, G’s movies are always entertaining.

  • Buckley

    I just don’t get the appeal of Butler. Such a brute.

  • bella

    Sounds like a good movie.

  • http://yahoo A FAN

    I will be there for this one. Looks interesting.

  • another fan

    After the Aniston film, what does this guy’s career future look like? Anything going on for him?

  • Eve

    Hopefully, this is a good one. All of Jamie’s movies tately have been disappointments for me. It’s like he’s cursed since going off on Billy Ray’s spawn. Gerard is so hot.

  • much better poster…

    …is on the Film Department’s website

    I wonder the same thing #11… LAC looks like a great project, but Gerry’s other movies???? I don’t know. The guy has talent (when he doesn’t use botox that is!) but if he takes off several months inbetween projects he’ll be forgotten soon… He needs to get his career going now, 5 years from now it’ll be too late. Plus I wish he’d fight a bit more for GOOD projects like Burns, Hanging Tale and The Untouchables prequel…. not just take the easy fluffy stuff like the Bounty that is falling into his lap.

  • lois

    Awesome posters, both of them. Love the photos used. This film is going to be totally out there and amazing. A great change for Gerry Butler … but the man can do anything, play any part, BE any character. He’s just that good. Put the two together, Jamie Foxx and Gerry Butler, and you have an instant winner! I loved Jamie in The Soloist … a transformation of out-of-this-world proportions. I absolutely cannot wait to see Law Abiding Citizen.

  • manLESSton, I likely

    I am so excited for this movie. Been watching the tweets regarding this project from the director and feedback is looking good. Hoping for more of these kind of projects in the Great Scot’s future. Please Gerry, skip the romcoms!

  • another fan

    @much better poster…: I think I heard a while back about something coming from Frank Miller and Zack Snyder in the “300″ genre – maybe a prequel or something. Anything going on with that?

  • stinkylouise

    A heads up, Entertainment Tonight is featuring LAC on it’s show tomorrow night. I was told it’s a preview of the trailer, possibly more.

  • manLESSton, I likely

    D@mn stinklouise, you are so connected. I have to set my DVR.
    Thanks JJ for giving us a thread just for Gerry. I love this guy!

  • sweetness

    I think Butler is taking over where Russell Crowe failed to deliver..the movie industry’s need for a macho man with sex appeal. Crowe lost his appeal years ago and now no one gives a crap about his films. Butler is utilizing his uber macho-ness by playing in dumb romantic comedies and action dramas. I was in the theater and saw many women seeing The Ugly Truth…let’s face it all Hollywood has to offer in terms of sex appeal lately are 20 year old effeminate boy heartthrobs. Sometimes women want to see a man onscreen not boys.

  • joisey kow

    Heck ya, sure do want to see some real, sexy beef cake…someone that looks like they’ve lived life some…not a vacant eyed 20 year old…
    i’d do Gerry for sure- YUM-MEE.

  • poster

    I don’t like these posters at all. They look amateurish. The older art work is/was better imo. I believe these are just teaser posters, not the official version.
    I hope this movie is good, but based on Gerry’s work since 300, I’m not holding my breath. Hopefully, I will be proven wrong.

  • wtf!!!!

    This is from an interview in a British mag called Red. Same, but different then the other articles of late. This stupid TUT movie has made G answer questions about his private life like never before. Here he’s asked to describe the kind of woman he’s looking for….today.

    “She’s got to be a combination of sweet and sexy, tall, dark with a bit of craziness thrown in,” he says with absolute precision “But at the end of the day, she has to be nice and I have to respect and trust her. I have to feel cared for and know that she’s out for my best interests.”

    And if you’re a worshipping fangurl, forget it….he doesn’t want you.
    “There’s nothing better than people appreciating you but it’s not a turn on. A fan is fantastc-they’re what makes your career worth it-but it doesn’t mean you want to marry them. They’re putting you on the pedestal and it’s very hard to date somebody like that.”

  • http://wtf passamango

    Hey Gerry, you”re gorgeous!

  • better things to come

    If Gamer and LAC are hits, even moderately so, GB will prove to the executives at movie studios that his movies can deliver and be profitable at BO. By riding on their success, he might be able to get needed financing and backing for “Burns”. I think GB really wants to fulfill this dream of his and now is the time to do it before he gets too old for the role and/or the momentum is completely gone.

  • pafan

    I think LAC is going to be a very, very good movie. A really different role for Gerry. The industry must have a lot of faith in it as well because the opening was moved from March 2010 to this October 16!. And, let’s not forget Gerry’s ‘Gamer’ which opens Sept. 4. That one is also getting a lot of good reviews from people who have seen early screenings. And in ‘Gamer’ he’s back to (almost) 300 form. Gerry is such a good actor. Think of the range of his characters. I don’t know any other actor at present who can go from terrific comedy form, to suspense to action and be believable in each. This is Gerry’s year to win the triple crown. (And not to forget, he’s gorgeous as well.)

  • Gerry marrying fans?

    I wonder how many fans really think Gerry one day is going to marry them. My guess is next to none. There are many factors involved in their adoration for Gerry, but the prospect of dating and marrying him got to be very very low on the hierarchy.

  • scary people here

    I doubt he will be getting married any too soon. He’s too set in his ways to make room for another person in his life right now. If and when he ever does get married, it will be to someone from back home, a complete non-entity. Someone who doesn’t know who he is or cares. Right now I don’t think any serious minded girl would touch him with his current rep. Although, I’m sure his devoted fan base is already grooming themselves for a chance to fulfill his idea of a dream girl. Fan girls can dream, I guess.

  • ?????

    “I have to respect and trust her.”
    What woman would respect and trust HIM!??
    A girl would have to overlook his past/ present behavior to want him, which means she’ll have to be a fangurl. LOL
    He’s really lessened his chances of getting a great girl by running his mouth (and groin) the way he has.

  • lilac

    Oh, good grief. Would anyone with a brain believe the stupid publicity and fan/non-fan blogging about this man?

    All I know (IMO) is that he is a talented actor and simply the most gorgeous human being (physically, on the surface) there ever was or will be. I don’t give a rat’s ### about his personal life. I just want to look at him. Those light green eyes. OMG.

  • anon

    Well said ????!

  • whatever

    @lilac: So true!

  • Maria

    Hey, did anyone see the dance scene in TUT?

    That man is the sexiest thing I have ever seen. ‘Erotic’ doesn’t even begin to explain it. With all his clothes on, he is just beyond hot.

  • noa

    Gerard is gorgeous. Oh good grief. I never thought I’d follow an actor before. But this guy is just too … well, hot to ignore. GB, you are the best.

  • Swansong

    Pics from LAC. Gerry’s character Clyde being arrested:

  • oh please

    He’s Fat!
    Nothing erotic about that.

  • Weronica

    Well, he sleeps with fans, that’s for sure. But only with the pretty ones, of course.

  • Gerry’s got
  • poster

    There is some very odd photoshopping of the poster of GB specifically, IMO – what happened to the back of GB’s neck – added to that the extremely odd profile of his nose, it all looks kinda wierd. I get that its trying to look like one of those film noir posters, but it actually (for GB not Jamie Foxx who is shot from a much better angle) ends up looking like some strange comic book character with a strange bendy neck! very odd and stranger the longer that you look at it!

  • another fan

    I just think you’ve got it wrong if you think this guy is a by-product of tricky camera work and photoshopping. He’s an extraordinarily good looking person and it’s not just his face and piercing eyes. He’s blessed with a tall and lean physique and the camera loves him. Sometimes his behavior and press are not exactly stellar, and don’t get me started on some of his clothing choices. But as for his looks and camera appeal, I just don’t think you can take that away from him. Wake up Hollywood – this is what a MAN looks like… IMO

  • Tonk romano

    This looks like an all right film. I might watch it.

  • PAT

    I have never…in all my years….ever enjoyed an actor like I enjoy Gerry. He can play any role he puts his mind to….he is that talented…IMHO! Look at the wide range of characters….the Phantom, Beowulf, the Stranger, Leonidas, etc. I loved him in TUT….his comedic timing is spot on! I can’t wait to see LAC. I think his dramatic talent is really going to shine in this. The trailer is on ET tonight and I can’t wait to see it.

  • @#34

    Oh Swansong, isn’t that pic of Gerry (front, face) breathtaking? They should seriously consider using that for the poster. This man needs to have offsprings. He is just…too darn beautiful to not having kids to pass on the genes.

  • pafan

    Can’t wait to see the LAC trailer on ET tonight. I hope it’s on the website or one of the fan sites after that.

  • pafan

    Thank you. Looks like this movie is going to be a real trip! Fantastic.

  • Sold

    Holly sh*t! Awesome. 100% sold on this one. Finally something to sink teeth in. Great job Gerard.

  • he looks

    awful in this movie. But the movie itself looks pretty good but as usual American movies rely too much on violence for quick sensational effect.

  • #35 and #48

    “oh please” and “he looks”:

    That’s Zach Efron’s fan site for you. There is a pretty boy for you and don’t bother to come back here to Gerard’s site. Obviously Gerard is not your “type” and why waste your time here. Goodbye.

  • gillianfey

    We saw The Ugly Truth on opening weekend and laughed our heads off. The only reason we haven’t bought LAC tickets is that they aren’t available yet. And we will be there for Gamer and The Bounty, not to mention (as they haven’t been filmed yet) Burns, A Hanging Tale, Teacher Man, and whatever else GB films, including How To Train Your Dragon for the children in the family. At some point he may take a well-deserved rest. Considering the many films in which he is currently starring and the launching of his own production company, his private life is most probably more talk and gossip than actuality.
