Crazy New Poster for The Devil’s Double Shows Dominic Cooper Armed in Gold

StumbleUponReddit

Love this new poster for Dominic Cooper’s new movie, Devil’s Double which is the latest from Lionsgate. It’s completely barmy but equally extremely original which makes a change from posters we’ve seen of late. The movie is based on the true story of ‘money, power and opulent decadence’.

The Devil’s Double is directed by Lee Tamahori and also stars Ludivine Sagnier, Raad Rawi, Mem Ferda, Dar Salim, Khalid Laith and Pano Masti. It screened at Sundance earlier this year and reports that I’ve seen are looking good. We’ve no UK release date as yet but it hits US cinemas 29th July.

You can find out more on the movie on the official Facebook page here. Thanks to AICN for sharing the poster with the world.

Synopsis: Based on a gripping, unbelievable true story of money, power and opulent decadence, Lionsgate’s THE DEVIL’S DOUBLE takes a white-knuckle ride deep into the lawless playground of excess and violence known as Bagdad, 1987. Summoned from the frontline to Saddam Hussein’s palace, Iraqi army lieutenant Latif Yahia (Dominic Cooper) is thrust into the highest echelons of the “royal family” when he’s ordered to become the ‘fiday’ – or body double – to Saddam’s son, the notorious “Black Prince” Uday Hussein (also Dominic Cooper), a reckless, sadistic party-boy with a rabid hunger for sex and brutality. With his and his family’s lives at stake, Latif must surrender his former self forever as he learns to walk, talk and act like Uday. But nothing could have prepared him for the horror of the Black Prince’s psychotic, drug-addled life of fast cars, easy women and impulsive violence. With one wrong move costing him his life, Latif forges an intimate bond with Sarrab (Ludivine Sangier), Uday’s seductive mistress who’s haunted by her own secrets. But as war looms with Kuwait and Uday’s depraved gangster regime threatens to destroy them all, Latif realizes that escape from the devil’s den will only come at the highest possible cost.

Featuring a riveting double performance by Dominic Cooper (AN EDUCATION, MAMA MIA) in the roles of Latif Yahia and Uday Hussein, THE DEVIL’S DOUBLE is a dynamic, chilling adaptation of Latif Yahia’s autobiographical novel, charting one man’s defiant struggle to survive a viper’s pit of corruption and brutality.  The film is directed by Lee Tamahori (DIE ANOTHER DAY, XXX: STATE OF THE UNION) and written by Michael Thomas (BACKBEAT, SCANDAL).
