New Poster, Release Date for The Raven

The Raven (2012)

Relativity Media released a new poster for its Edgar Allan Poe thriller The Raven (right; click for larger version) while simultaneously delaying the release of the film by a month. This poster's tagline: "The only one who can stop a serial killer is the man who inspired him."

When a mother and daughter are found brutally murdered in 19th century Baltimore, Detective Emmett Fields (Luke Evans) makes a startling discovery: the crime resembles a fictional murder described in gory detail in the local newspaper — part of a collection of stories penned by struggling writer and social pariah Edgar Allan Poe (played by John Cusack). But even as Poe is questioned by police, another grisly murder occurs, also inspired by a popular Poe story.

Realizing a serial killer is on the loose using Poe's writings as the backdrop for his bloody rampage, Fields enlists the author's help in stopping the attacks. But when it appears someone close to Poe may become the murderer's next victim, the stakes become even higher and the inventor of the detective story calls on his own powers of deduction to try to solve the case before it's too late.

The Raven is now scheduled to open in US theaters April 27th, 2012. Watch a trailer (from last year) for the film below.
