Ain’t It Cool News has premiered an incredibly cool poster for Alex Proyas‘ Knowing. The poster makes the concept of a code of mass destruction actually look pretty cool. In the film, Nicolas Cage stars as Ted Myles, a professor who stumbles on terrifying predictions about the future–and sets out to prevent them from coming true. Head on over to AICN for the super high resolution version of the poster.
Academy Award Winner Nicholas Cage stars in the gripping action thriller Knowing. In 1958, as part of the dedication ceremony for a new elementary school, a group of students is asked to draw pictures to be stored in a time capsule. But one mysterious girl fills her sheet of paper with rows of apparently random numbers instead. Fifty years later, a new generation of students examines the capsule’s contents and the girl’s cryptic message ends up in the hands of young Caleb Myles. But it is Caleb’s father, professor Ted Myles (Nicholas Cage), who makes the startling discovery that the encoded message predicts with pinpoint accuracy the dates, death tolls and coordinates of every major disaster of the past 50 years. As Ted further unravels the document’s chilling secrets, he realizes the document foretells three additional events – the last of which hints at destruction on a global scale. When Ted’s attempts to alert the authorities fall on deaf ears, he takes it upon himself to try to prevent more destruction from taking place. Ted’s increasingly desperate efforts take him on a heart-pounding race against time until he finds himself facing the ultimate disaster – and the ultimate sacrifice. Knowing is directed by Alex Proyas (I, Robot, Dark City, The Crow). Knowing hits theaters on March 20th 2009.
