Henry's Crime Poster: Act In A Play, Execute A Heist
The cast alone of Henry's Crime makes it an easy sell: Keanu Reeves, Vera Farmiga and James Caan, starring in a bank-heist comedy, with backup from Judy Greer, Peter Stormare and Fisher Stevens? No arm-twisting needed there. The movie also premiered last fall at the Toronto Film Festival, which means at least a few smart people already gave it their stamp of approval, and the plot involves Reeves's character executing a bank heist by taking the lead role in a performance of The Cherry Orchard.
Amazingly enough, a lot of that manages to come across in the poster, which premiered at Cinematical and you can see below. You've got the three leads, the theater and the bank, and some helpfully scrawled instructions that point to the heist. Unfortunately there's also the matter of a howler of a tagline: "The real crime is not committing to your dreams." That seems to point directly at some kind of sappy ending in which Henry and everybody else realize their true purpose in life, which is not at all the kind of thing that gets you pumped for a comedy heist thriller.
Beyond that, though, everything's looking good. Henry's Crime opens in New York April 8 and will expand wider the week after.
