Hope. B#ll~cks more like...

Alastair Campbell may hate it, but everyone else is waiting for In The Loop with something approaching giddy excitement, as the prospect of an colossal Gandolfini/Capaldi swear-off draws ever closer.

To pass the time, here are a couple of new characters posters giving the Obama treatment to Tom Hollander's befuddled Development Minister and James Gandolfini's surprisingly dove-like General Miller. Along with Peter Capaldi's sweary spin doctor Malcolm Tucker, the film sees the two embroiled in the UK and American governments' build-up to war in the Middle East.


In The Loop is released in the UK on April 17.

Posters look good.where was your knowing review?! I had a day off on thursday and would not make a move to the cinema till I could get a green light from my favourite magazine.I knew it was a gamble.The director of I, robot and The Crow I thought I would be safe. Yes Nic Cage was the part that worried me but maybe this was a change in his carear nose dive. But with no information forthcoming from Empire I went. alas you were too late. Its soooo bad. Nick cage you must stop now. Retire.No more More
