Denzel Washington’s Disconcerted Gaze Dominates The Poster For ‘Flight’

Denzel Washington's Disconcerted Gaze Dominates The Poster For 'Flight'

Paramount has set the wide release date for Flight for November 22012. Although, as we’ve noted, the film is scheduled to screen at a handful of film festivals before then. 

I’m actually seeing it this Sunday, and I’m looking forward to it. The cast and crew are supposed to be present for a post-screening Q&A, which is always an extra attraction.

Denzel Washington starz in the action drama, directed by Robert Zemeckis, which centers on an alcoholic and drug-addicted pilot, on course towards a life-change who saves a flight from an engine malfunction, rescuing the plane and the passengers, and becoming a hero, only to find his non-public substance abuse problem, brought to light, thanks to an FAA investigation into the case.

Naturally, lots of drama ensues… 

I haven’t read a single early review yet, so the film’s awards season strength is still unknown. I’ll find out this Sunday.

By the way, Don Cheadle and Garcelle Beauvais amongst many others, co-star.

Hitflix has the exclusive on the film’s poster, which is embedded below (trailer underneath):
