Another day has arrived, and as such, another new poster has arrived for director Toa Fraser‘s Maori action drama, The Dead Lands. The new poster marks the official New Zealand release date for October 30 from Transmission Films.
Check it out below:
Written by Glenn Standring, the new film centers on actor James Rolleston in the role of Hongi, the son of a chieftain forced trek forbbiden territory to forge an uneasy alliance with a mysterious warrior in order to avenge his father and his tribe, and bring peace and honor to their souls. One of the biggest elements moviegoers can expect on top of its stunning New Zealand landscapes and prominence of Maori culture will be the presence of Mau rakau, an ancient style of Maori martial arts and weapons combat used for the film’s epic fight sequences, coordinated by Steve McQuillan (Ek Tha Tiger, Spartacus: Blood And Sand). So, rest assured, positive early screening reviews notwithstanding, The Dead Lands will be sure-fire effort in delivering a fully-fledged epic story when it gains a bigger audience in the months ahead.

Paramount Pictures already has multitudes of character posters, as well as a few international posters floating around online for director Jonathan Liebesman‘s upcoming film, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.

The promotional campaign for the new film has been getting some pretty immense attention, particularly with a 17-minute clip of a behind-the-scenes program hosted by co-stars Megan Fox and Will Arnett last week.
