Jason Statham’s ‘Wrath of Man’ Movie Poster Confirms May Release Date

Guy Ritchie reveals the first official poster for Wrath of Man and confirms a May theatrical release date.

The first poster for Wrath of Man has been released, and it’s vintage Statham and Ritchie. The bald, muscular action star dons a good-looking suit, but his sophisticated exterior is undercut by the blood and scratches all over his face and hands.

Ritchie’s dark brown and yellow color palette is absolutely in place on this poster. It has a distinctly 1970s B-action movie feel to it, which in this case is a good thing. The poster also verifies that Wrath of Man will release in theaters on May 7.

Ritchie’s 2019 flick The Gentlemen saw him return to his crime comedy roots. He then shot Wrath of Man in late 2019 and wrapped it in early 2020, just before the coronavirus pandemic hit. The duo has a long history, with Ritchie getting Statham (a former Olympic diver and model in the 1990s), his first feature movie gig on Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels.

Ritchie made another crime comedy with Statham in the lead, Snatch, which made the actor a Hollywood action celebrity and secured Ritchie’s reputation. The pair has survived in Hollywood since, with Ritchie moving onto increasingly big-budget franchises like Sherlock Holmes and Disney’s Aladdin remake.

The poster ascertains that Ritchie is firmly back operating in his wheelhouse. He follows up The Gentlemen with what appears to be another hard-nosed crime film with an ample amount of bloody action and, hopefully, his sharp, humorous dialogue. There’s no doubt he and Statham enjoyed working together again.

The pair reteamed again in 2020 to shoot the spy action thriller Five Eyes, substantiating that their chemistry hasn’t died two decades after first working together.

The May 7 release date should imply there will be an audience ready to stream it. In the US, the hope is to have vaccinated a large part of its population against COVID-19, enabling businesses like movie theaters to receive more people at once. And with crucial blockbusters postponed later into summer, Ritchie’s latest may be one of the limited releases in theaters, heightening its chances of capturing a large audience.
