Clint Eastwood's "Flags of Our Fathers" Poster

by | August 3, 2006 | Comments

Clint Eastwood decided that the story of Iwo Jima was too big for just one movie, so he figured he’d make one from the American perspective, and a second through the eyes of the Japanese. Pretty cool idea, and the first film, entitled "Flags of Our Fathers," opens on October 21st. A brand-new poster has just been revealed…

Click here for the USA Today report, which is also where you’ll find the poster.

"Clint Eastwood’s new film ‘Flags of Our Fathers’ looks at the back story of one of the nation’s most iconic images of unity in the face of war. The two-time Oscar-winning director focuses on the raising of the American flag during World War II’s battle of Iwo Jima. The moment was captured in photos and on film and later immortalized as a sculpture for the Marine Corps War Memorial in Arlington, Va."

The film, which was written by William Broyles Jr. and Paul Haggis, has also been chosen to open this year’s Tokyo Film Festival.
