Leviathan Poster and Release Date Confirmed
Back in September when I covered the 2012 Toronto International Film Festival the movie I was looking forward to the most wasn’t anything from the major fests like Cannes or with major directors/writers/stars. It was a documentary about a fishing boat’s voyage that, going by its trailer, was unlike anything I’ve seen before. Leviathan, made by Lucien Castaing-Taylor and Verena Paravel, exceeded my already high expectations in every way imaginable once I actually got to see it.
Shot on a variety of small HD cameras which were thrown around on the ship and in the ocean, Leviathan is a disorienting assault on the senses that captures the terrifying forces of nature in a way no other movie has. Cinema Guild has picked up distribution rights in the United States, and it was just announced today that it’ll be coming out in theatres on March 1st. They also unveiled the film’s poster which gives a good sense of what to expect. Look at the poster below, and make sure to see this film if it ends up playing near you.
