Exclusive: New Kill List Poster

Exclusive: New Kill List Poster

Could director Ben Wheatley be catapulting from Kill List to the A-list? Don't be against it, and definitely don't bet against him making a similar breakthrough to fellow Brit newcomers Duncan Jones and Gareth Edwards. Like Jones, he's a  Cannes Lion winner in his previous life in advertising; like Edwards, he's a technical whiz with a DIY ethos; like both of them, he's seriously talented.

Wheatley cut his teeth on taut Brit thriller Down Terrace, and the buzz building around his second feature would wake a dog on Pandora. Kill List has a classy new poster to add to the fever pitch.

The film follows ex-hitman Jay (Neil Maskell) back from working in the Ukraine and under pressure to make ends meet. It's then that he's approached by an old mucker to take one final, lucrative contract. Before you can say "oh-my-god-don't-do-it-it's-that-one-final-job-thing!", he signs on the dotted line. In blood.


Jay is then given the titular hit list and told to act on it. As you can imagine - and as the tagline suggests with stark economy - he's not popping round to their houses with Easter eggs. But who are the names on the list and what do they have in common? Does that strange iconography on the poster have anything to do with it or has CND rebranded?

All will be revealed when Kill List is out on September 2. Add it to your movie list. Do it, do it now.

Simply cannot wait for this one.
I doubt it'll get a widespread cinema release, unfortunately. More
