A new poster for Roman Polanski‘s Carnage has been released this week, but unfortunately it doesn’t do much in the way of promotion.

Written and directed by Roman Polanski, the film is based on the acclaimed play God of Carnage by French playwright Yasmina Reza and premiered at the 68th Venice International Film Festival this year.

Whilst the poster doesn’t reflect on the film’s black comedy genre, it does express the film’s plot exceedingly well, showing two sets of parents (Kate Winslet, Christoph Waltz and Jodie Foster, John C. Reilly) who meet up to talk after their children got into a fight at school.

It might not sound very interesting, or even look that way from the poser, but Carnage has received a number of excellent reviews and the play that it is based on has won three awards, including Best New Play at the 2009 Olivier Awards.

Carnage is set to be released on 3rd February, 2012, and here’s the latest poster, courtesy of IMP:
