Makers of Napoleon drop new poster
Directed by Ridley Scott, Joaquin Phoenix plays the ruler
A new poster from Napoleon, the upcoming film on the French ruler Napoleon Bonaparte, was released by the makers on Tuesday, for the occasion of the ruler's birthday. The poster features actor Joaquin Phoenix as the ruler. He is seen sitting atop a horse, with a sword in his hand.
Directed by Ridley Scott, the film marks Phoenix's second collaboration with Scott after the much-acclaimed 2000 film Gladiator. Vanessa Kirby essays the role of Josephine, the emperor's wife.
Napoleon also stars Tahar Rahim, Mark Bonnar, Rupert Everett, and Youssef Kerkour. Penned by David Scarpa, the film is backed by Apple TV in association with Sony Pictures Entertainment. The film will focus on the world famous ruler's origins, his elevation to being a ruthless emperor through the course of various battles, and strategies.
The film is all set to hit the theatres on November 22.
