In anticipation for its debut at Sundance in a few weeks, the first poster for Bradley Cooper’s The Words has premiered. Surrounded by text, the one sheet shows a side view of Cooper and we take it this is the “good side” of the one-time Sexiest Man Alive.
The text in The Words’ poster are lines from the screenplay and kudos goes to its creators for being wildly original.
The romance-meets-mystery movie follows Cooper’s character who is a struggling writer. His wife (Zoe Saldana) buys an item for him in an antique store. In it he discovers a “lost” novel from a Hemingway-type author (played by Jeremy Irons). What’s a guy to do… publish as his own? In The Words, you bet.
There is a foil to Cooper’s situation and it comes in the form of Olivia Wilde. She is a fellow author who is determined to discover the source of this great work that seems to have come out of nowhere for Cooper’s author character.
