Exclusive: New Leatherheads Poster
Renee and George Get Romantic

31 January 2008  |  Written by Olly Richards

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.

I don't think his head looks that big, it does look like the head of Dr Sam Becket from Quantum Leap though. More

Head...
I dunno if it looks that big, but he looks about twenty. If he had bigger hair, it'd be Killer Tomatoes all over again. In other news, this should be ace, although I wasn't blown away by the trailer, I'm still hoping this'll be great. More

RE: HUGE HEAD
I wouldn't say the head is huge, but there's something about the face that just doesn't look right. It just seems to be on the wrong place on his head, like they photoshopped it down about half an inch.   What I'm really worried about, and the poster has reminded me, is how many times in this film is Renee going to do her "sucking on a lemon" face? The last time we saw her in a period sports flick (Cinderella Man), she was crinkling that visage up something awful. More

HUGE HEAD
You're right, that looks absolutely ridicuous! His head is enormous! More

Big head
Probably just a perspective issue but doesn't Clooney's head appear comically large? More

RE: George Clooney...
How any man that handsome can gurn that well is beyond me. Thoroughly looking forward to this, great big Clooney-loving buffoon what I am. I'm not gay by the way. More

George Clooney...
...that man is always about two degrees away from being unbearably smug. Yet...yet...those two degrees keep him the right side of gorgeous, charming, dapper and talented! Okay, that's my girly gushing done with for today! More
