Exclusive: New Leatherheads Poster

Renee and George Get Romantic

Universal has sent us an exclusive new poster for the George Clooney directed Leatherheads. Click the image below for a hi-res version.

There was another poster online yesterday (here) playing up the American football angle on this movie about a sports hero (Clooney) who enters into a love-hate relationship with a reporter (Renee Zellweger) who has come to town to write a story on the rather too squeaky clean new team hero (John Krasinski). But American football is just a sport for men too scared to play rugby, so we're looking forward to this as a movie that seems to be made in the mould of rapid fire rom-coms like His Girl Friday.

What we've seen looks great and we are firmly of the belief that George Clooney as a director can do no wrong. Zellweger showed in the rather underrated Down With Love that she can easily wrap her tongue around a witty, fast-paced line (the reveal of her masterplan in that movie is amazing). So we're expecting big things from this.
