White Boy Rick Poster Launch Image

“White Boy Rick” Gets Strong, Simple Poster

Columbia Pictures has just launched a new poster for their upcoming highly anticipated film, the Matthew McConaughey starrier White Boy Rick.

The film, which is set in 1980s Detroit at the height of the War on Drugs, tells the true story of a blue-collar father and his teenage son, the later of which became an undercover police informant and eventually a drug dealer.  The poster, in fairly simplistic fashion, shows our father-son duo walking down a snow-laden street, guns in hand.  A brief plotline synopsis helps to set the stage, though, with such a powerful image, there isn’t much that needs to be said.

White Boy Rick is directed by Yann Demange and stars McConaughey, Richie Merritt, Bel Powley, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Bruce Dern, and Piper Laurie.  It is set to make its world premiere next month at the Toronto International Film Festival before hitting theaters on September 14.

About Stephen Davis

Stephen Davis
I owe this hobby/career to the one and only Stephanie Peterman who, while interning at Fox, told me that I had too many opinions and irrelevant information to keep it all bottled up inside. I survived my first rated R film, Alive, at the ripe age of 8, it took me months to grasp the fact that Julia Roberts actually died at the end of Steel Magnolias, and I might be the only person alive who actually enjoyed Sorority Row…for its comedic value of course. While my friends can drink you under the table, I can outwatch you when it comes iconic, yet horrid 80s films like Adventures in Babysitting and Troop Beverly Hills. I have no shame when it comes to what I like, and if you have a problem with that, then we’ll settle it on the racquetball court. I see too many movies to actually win any film trivia contest, so don’t waste your first pick on me. My friends rent movies from my bookcase shelves, and one day I do plan to start charging. I long to live in LA, where my movie obsession will actually help me fit in, but for now I am content with my home in Austin. I prefer indies to blockbusters, Longhorns to Sooners and Halloween to Friday the 13th. I miss the classics, as well as John Ritter, and I hope to one day sit down and interview the amazing Kate Winslet.
