'John Doe' Teaser Poster released
No, we're not quite done with Bamberpalooza Spring 2012 yet ;)  Steve Coates (@wetroads), the screenwriter of Jamie's movie John Doe, tweeted a link to the film's production company website today because they've just released a teaser poster....



Oh, WHUT? Yeeeeeah. Creeper killer Jamie is a waxy-faced creeper. With cold, dead doll-eyes (That I'm pretty confident aren't actually his - hello there, Photoshop. ;) )

Now is probably a good time to point out, too, that we've been sitting on this photo for a couple of months now - didn't seem worth posting at the time because, yet again... creepy mask is creepy is the main theme. (Probably IS him under there, but no way to tell for sure.)  Anyway, since we have a poster too now, good a time as any to include it:


(Also, NO idea which look is actually the mask John Doe sports in the film. I prefer the second one myself.)


FYI, we did ask Steve recently when we might see a teaser trailer, and he said "very soon" - i.e. probably noncommittal because they're still working on post. So hopefully sooner end of soon? (I will say this - it's not like I have any illusions about the type of movie this is or what the tone of the trailer will likely be. I'm pretty open minded about the movie itself. It'd be really nice to see his face at least once in the teaser, though. And not just because it's pretty. He uses it.... to act with. A LOT. And he's rather good at at. ;) )

Looking forward to creepy scary Jamie. Although it amuses me that the white mask still has his chiseled jawline.

See, the bottom one looks like a mask. The top one looks like some type of alien or robotic life form. Maybe an Auton or something.

My thoughts exactly! The second one is more "utterly faceless" which seems to work better for what I understand the character to be about at this point. Also, not being able to see his eyes clearly is a plus for such a character, IMO. (See also: V For Vendetta.)

You know, I haven't read/heard a ton about this movie. Everything I do know is kinda vague. So I can't really guess what they're trying to go for but I do agree that these pictures seem to represent two vastly different concepts. The first has a sci-fi/horror/supernatural kinda feel and the second has a more psychological thriller vibe.

Agree. And the second vibe is what I gather to be the actual tone of the story, which is partially why I think it works better. See also, NO CREEPY DOLL EYES. ;)

This link is probably the most informative one I've read so far: http://filmink.com.au/news/aussie-antihero_2/ (They are keeping a lot under wraps though.)

Yes, I agree too. and even if I usually go for sci-fi/supernatural, in this case the second one is definitely better. Again, at least from what we know about them.
