Warner Bros. Pictures has released a new and beautifully designed interactive character poster promoting the brilliant Paul Thomas Anderson‘s highly anticipated Inherent Vice.
The seventh feature from PTA, and the first ever adaptation of a Thomas Pynchon novel, the new poster allows us learn more about the film’s characters, which features an excellent cast including Oscar nominees Joaquin Phoenix, Josh Brolin and Owen Wilson and Oscar winners Reese Witherspoon and Benicio Del Toro.
The new poster features wonderfully designed images of these characters sat at a long table, titled ‘The Last Supper’, in a bright 80’s style theme, that you can scroll through to explore them all, enabling the audience to get to know the characters before the films big release in the new year.
Here’s the films official synopsis:
When private eye Doc Sportello’s (Joaquin Phoenix) ex-old lady suddenly out of nowhere shows up with a story about her current billionaire land developer boyfriend whom she just happens to be in love with, and a plot by his wife and her boyfriend to kidnap that billionaire and throw him in a loony bin… well, easy for her to say.
It’s the tail end of the psychedelic `60s and paranoia is running the day and Doc knows that “love” is another of those words going around at the moment, like “trip” or “groovy,” that’s being way too overused—except this one usually leads to trouble.
With a cast of characters that includes surfers, hustlers, dopers and rockers, a murderous loan shark, LAPD Detectives, a tenor sax player working undercover, and a mysterious entity known as the Golden Fang, which may only be a tax dodge set up by some dentists… Part surf noir, part psychedelic romp—all Thomas Pynchon.
