Jennifer Garner and Jamie Foxx’s Middle Eastern action-thriller “The Kingdom” gets a new poster (thumbnail to your left, bigger version below), and it looks, well, like an action movie starring Jennifer Garner and Jamie Foxx, which seems to be the whole point. Um. Anyways. The Peter Berg directed film has been getting pretty good buzz, and is being called gritty, action-packed, and at the same time, pretty bloody. Basically, my kind of movie. And Berg is an extremely talented director, and I’m really looking forward to what he does with a balls-out action movie.
A team of U.S. counter-terrorism investigators set out to find the perpetrators behind a deadly attack on Americans in a Middle Eastern country. In order to work through the bureaucracy and cultural hostility, the team enlists a local police officer, but still finds itself target for the terrorists.
Starring Jamie Foxx, Chris Cooper, Jennifer Garner, Jason Bateman, Tom Bresnahan, and directed by Peter Berg.
