Everyone is looking fairly serious on the poster for the upcoming film Margin Call, as well they should be. Based on a true story, Margin Call follows a crucial day in the life of an investment bank during the start of the financial crisis back in 2008. That alone sounds interesting, but itís the cast, which consists of a number of actors who have, quite literally, given me goosebumps in previous performances, that really sell this film. Fortunately, most of the notable names are featured on the poster.

Margin CallĎs excellent cast includes Kevin Spacey, Stanley Tucci Paul Bettany, Jeremy Irons, Zachary Quinto, Penn Badgley, Simon Baker, Mary McDonnell and Demi Moore. The trailer had me at the first sight of Stanley Tucci. Iíd watch that man read the back of a shampoo bottle. I could probably say the same for Spacey, Irons, Quinto and just about everyone else shown on the poster. While Mary McDonnell doesnít appear on this poster, as a Battlestar Galactica fan, Iím happy to see her name on the cast-list nonetheless.

IMDB has a previously released teaser-poster, which features what looks like a line-graph, which likely signifies the falling stock market, or perhaps something a bit more specific to whatís going on in the story. This latest poster not only gives us a look at the stern faces of the cast, but it also bears a cold message.
