THE NEWS BUNDLE: Al Pacino and Helen Mirren Are A Tabloid Headline in First Poster for HBO's 'Phil Spector'


While fans patiently wait once more for the third season of Game of Thrones (or even our first full-length trailer for that matter), HBO has plenty of events to look out for in order to pass the time. This weekend, Benedict Cumberbatch will look to captivate audiences with Parade's End, a three-night five-part miniseries event that took the BBC by storm earlier last year. But HBO's next original film Phil Spector is certainly turning heads due to the subject matter and the star talent involved.

Now, after the first extended trailer popped up earlier this month we now have a tabloid-like poster for the next feature film that certainly aims for the material its portraying.

Written and directed by David Mamet, Phil Spector is his exploration of the client-attorney relationship between legendary music producer Phil Spector (Al Pacino) and defense attorney Linda Kenney Baden (Helen Mirren), who represented Spector during his first trial for murder. Mamet serves as executive producer with Barry Levinson. The cast also includes Rebecca Pidgeon, Jeffrey Tambor and Chiwetel Ejiofor.

Phil Spector premieres Sunday March 24th on HBO.
