Years ago Edward Norton was asked what attracted him to making Frank Oz’s The Score. Turns out starring alongside Robert De Niro and Marlon Brando was the answer. He claimed he was doing it for the poster. Could Bradley Cooper be pulling a similar trick here? Limitless, which hits UK cinemas next month, sounds pretty corny and very silly but Cooper gets to star with the one and only Robert De Niro.
We put out the trailer earlier in the month and you can see it right here. Nothing’s yet convinced me this is a generic thriller but it’s got a great cast. Starring with Coop and Bobby D is the excellent Abbie Cornish and Rochdale’s most famous lass since Gracie Fields – Anna Friel.
Two new UK promo posters have been put online. Note how they both use bending buildings, garish lights and streaked imagery to suggest the presence of the world being a tad off-kilter. Think Cooper’s character needs to talk to FRANK. Might be worth a punt… might be… don’t hold your breath! Some dude called Neil Burger directs and UK audiences can check it out from 18th March… same goes for the Yanks!
Bradley Cooper and Robert De Niro star in Limitless, a paranoia-fueled action thriller about an unsuccessful writer whose life is transformed by a top-secret smart drug named NZT, that allows him to use 100% of his brain and become a perfect version of himself. His enhanced abilities soon attract shadowy forces that threaten his new life in this darkly comic and provocative film.
