Don Cheadle's "Traitor" Poster and Trailer Online

Coming August 27th, 2008, Don Cheadle and Guy Pearce headline "Traitor," an espionage thriller from writer-director Jeffrey Nachmanoff and idea man Steve Martin (yes, that one). Here's the brand new poster (courtesy of Cinematical):

Looks like a fairly conventional poster complete with the requisite digital world clocks at the top to symbolize that time is running out (and EVERYWHERE at that), and a confused-looking Jeff Daniels in the lower left-hand corner.

There's a trailer on the official movie site that's worth a look as well, though good luck not laughing. There's some good action, but the dialogue and dramatic personal scenes could use some work. Said Taghmaoui is playing a violent Middle Eastern extremist again (see also: "Vantage Point", "Three Kings") and he even makes a heavy-handed chess analogy when he just so happens to be playing chess. Golly, it's lucky they had that conversation just then.

What's more, there's something to be said for a film in which the main character actually says the movie's tagline. "The Truth is Complicated"? C'mon, marketing. Think that one over another week.
