After releaseing a yawn-ish one-sheet for The Departed, Warner Bros Pictures has now released a bunch of character posters that are, sadly, using the same formula.
The Departed Character Posters
The Departed is set in
South Boston, where the state police force is waging war on organized crime.
Young undercover cop Billy Costigan (Leonardo DiCaprio) is assigned to infiltrate
the mob syndicate run by gangland chief Costello (Jack Nicholson). While
Billy is quickly gaining Costello's confidence, Colin Sullivan (Matt Damon),
a hardened young criminal who has infiltrated the police department as an
informer for the syndicate, is rising to a position of power in the Special
Investigation Unit. Each man becomes deeply consumed by his double life,
gathering information about the plans and counter-plans of the operations
he has penetrated. But when it becomes clear to both the gangsters and the
police that there's a mole in their midst, Billy and Colin are suddenly
in danger of being caught and exposed to the enemy – and each must
race to uncover the identity of the other man in time to save himself.
Check out the character posters below and pay attention to various similarities.
