Two New French Posters for Soderbergh's Che

We've just stumbled across two beautiful new posters for Steven Soderbergh's Che double feature. We should probably start referring to each film individually, because these posters are already split up. They're both too exquisite to be reduced in size and placed side-by-side, so I'm featuring each of them in full below. I don't think these movies need an introduction anymore... However, I can guarantee that this is only just the beginning in regards to marketing and promotion for Che. Until we get more from the American side of things, feast your eyes on these two beauties.

I am a bit annoyed that they're using the girl, Aleida Guevara (played by Catalina Sandino Moreno), to sell the first film - The Argentine. She is important to Che's life (he eventually marries her), but she only really shows up half-way through the movie (or even later than that, if I can recall correctly). It's not a big problem, but the movie is much less about her and more about everything else Che does during that Cuban revolution in 1956. Also a special thanks to for digging these two posters up!

The Argentine French Poster

Guerrilla French Poster

Che is a true life historical epic made up of two individual films (The Argentine and Guerrilla) that chronicles the life of revolutionary Ernesto "Che" Guevara. They're both directed by Steven Soderbergh, of Traffic, The Good German, and the Ocean's Trilogy previously. The screenplays were written by Peter Buchman, of Jurassic Park III and Eragon previously, and are based on Guevara's memoirs. IFC Films is releasing Che and plans to debut it in theaters separately sometime in late 2008 and/or early 2009.
