Alexander Skarsgård and Ellen Page look a little dirty in new image from The East
2012 is behind us, the Academy Award nominations come out this Thursday (can you believe it?) so the obvious thing we must do is gear up for the film festival circuit, right? Next week the Sundance Film Festival kicks off the new year and today we’re getting a quick look at the film THE EAST from director Zal Batmanglij (SOUND OF MY VOICE). Below you can see a shot of Alexander Skarsgård (HBO’s True Blood) and Ellen Page (INCEPTION, JUNO) who are looking a little battered and dirty.
Here’s the official synopsis for THE EAST: Someone is attacking big corporate CEOs and forcing them to consume harmful products they manufacture. An elite private intelligence firm is called into action and contracts ex-FBI agent Sarah Moss (Brit Marling) to infiltrate a mysterious anarchist collective, The East, suspected to be responsible. Skilled, focused, and bent on success, Sarah goes undercover and dedicates herself to taking down the organization. She soon finds, however, that the closer she gets to the action, the more she sympathizes with the group’s charismatic leaders.
That synopsis doesn’t give us a lot of insight into the photo, but it does sound intriguing nonetheless. Directed by Zal Batmanglij, THE EAST stars: Ellen Page, Alexander Skarsgård, Patricia Clarkson, Brit Marling, Julia Ormond and Toby Kebbell. As mentioned before, THE EAST will be premiering at the Sundance Film Festival and if all goes well should land a distributor so we can all see it on the big screen. (USA Today)
