New posters have been released for Rampart, The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, The Darkest Hour, and Shame.  I haven’t seen Dragon Tattoo yet so I’m not sure if Daniel Craig sprouts a Rooney Mara.  I also haven’t seen Darkest Hour so I’m not sure if the characters are more freaked out by what’s in front of them instead of the gigantic explosion behind them.  But I have seen Rampart and I think Millennium Films can do better than “Giant Woody Harrelson Face”.  I also think the tagline should try to say more than just “Corrupt Cop Movie; Go See.”  As for Shame, the French poster tries to sell the movie as sexy, and it’s absolutely not.

Hit the jump to check out the posters.  Rampart has a one-week award-qualifying run on November 23rd before opening in limited release on January 27, 2012.  The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo opens December 21st.  The Darkest Hour opens in 3D on December 23rd.  Shame opens in limited release on December 2nd.

Posters via EW and IMP Awards.

A genre-bending, 1990s Los Angeles police family drama, Rampart explores the dark soul and romantic misadventures of a never- changing LAPD cop (Woody Harrelson) whose past is finally catching up with him in the wake of a department-wide corruption scandal. Along the way, he is forced to confront his disgruntled daughters (Brie Larson, Sammy Boyarsky), his two ex-wives (Anne Heche, Cynthia Nixon), a tenacious Deputy DA (Sigourney Weaver), an investigator on his trail (Ice Cube), a homeless witness to his crimes (Ben Foster), his aging mentor (Ned Beatty) and a mysterious new lover who may or may not be on his side (Robin Wright), as he fights for his own sanity and survival.
