Billy Bob Thornton Loses Some Of His Head In First Look At Survival Thriller Endangered
Even though the new poster seen above for the upcoming survival horror Endangered is pretty bland, two things immediately stick out. One, it looks almost exactly like one of the Inglorious Basterds posters that promoted Quentin Tarantinoís film. (You can find it at the bottom of the page for a handy reference.) The second thing quite literally sticks out of the side of actor Billy Bob Thorntonís head, and itís the entire left side of his face, which just kind of droops there, with his ear hovering above like an angel's halo made out of melted cheese. I have to assume whoever heís pointing that gun at is staring at him with saucer-wide eyes and a sneer sharp enough to slice a hair.
Weíve also got quite a few new stills from the film, courtesy of Blairwitch.de, including the shot from which the poster image is taken. I think we can safely assume the ear wound is the work of a grizzly bear, as Thornton plays a bear hunter who has been waiting his entire life to kill him a bear. James Marsden plays a man recently released from prison who goes on a trip with his deputy brother (Thomas Jane), and his future sister-in-law (Piper Perabo) into the Alaskan wild. As you can imagine, a grizzly bear arrives and starts terrorizing our characters in no time. And then everyoneís paths cross and Iím assuming one of them makes it out alive. (Though he probably wonít just grin and bear it.)
So letís take a look at some of what this film is all about, starting with Thorntonís most-of-a-head. I wonder if heíll stash money there once it heals. Then youíve got the bear causing a ruckus by growling and what not, followed by Jane and Marsden pointing guns; one is a flare gun, but still. And we end on one of the grossest chewed-up prosthetics Iíve seen in a while. Good luck not dreaming about those bubble gum gashes tonight.
Endangered was directed by David Hackl, who last gifted the world with Saw V, and was co-written by Guy Moshe (Bunraku), Rick Cleveland (House of Cards) and J.R. Reher (Killogy). Youíll be able to hunt it down in theaters and on VOD at a currently undisclosed date. Iíd ask the bear, but I donít think heíd tell me.
Hereís that Inglorious Basterds poster. Crazy, right?
