Vin Diesel’s Babylon A.D. Poster

Boy, does Vin Diesel need a hit or does Vin Diesel need a hit? I’m not sure starring in a French-produced science fiction movie will do it, but hey, hope springs eternal, right? Diesel’s latest is “Babylon A.D.”, and the guys over at FirstShowing.com have found the first poster for the film (thumbnail to your left, bigger version below). It sells its biggest draw — Vin Diesel, which at this point, I’m not all that sure is all that big of a draw. But hey, maybe I’m just being overly pessimistic.

Veteran-turned-mercenary Thoorop (Diesel) takes the high-risk job of escorting a woman from Russia to China. Little does he know that she is host to an organism that a cult wants to harvest in order to produce a genetically modified Messiah.

Starring Vincent Cassel, Vin Diesel, Michelle Yeoh, Melanie Thierry, Gerard Depardieu, and directed by Mathieu Kassovitz, a French actor who is making his directorial debut with “Babylon A.D.”
