Defendor Poster

This is supposedly the official poster for Sandra's upcoming movie Defendor which will premiere at the Toronto Film Festival in September.

Elias Koteas, who plays a cop in Defendor, talks about the movie in a recent interview with SCI FI Wire:
"Woody [Harrelson] plays this guy who, most of the time, is this meek individual," Koteas said in an interview while promoting his latest film, the March 27 release The Haunting in Connecticut. "And he takes it upon himself to be this Defendor. He doesn't have real powers. He has marbles that he throws at you. He has a club. He has bees in a bottle that he sics on you. You don't know if you should laugh or be pissed off or run or what. As a character opposite that, you don't know 'Who is this guy, and what the hell does he want?' The story is really quite beautiful."

Oh plays Harrelson's psychiatrist, while Dennings appears as a crack-addicted prostitute who befriends the Defendor. Koteas is a police detective who's crossed over to the dark side.

"He went in to infiltrate this group, this gang, and in the meantime the lines were fuzzy, so somehow he lost his family, he gets addicted to crack, and he becomes something like a part-time pimp for this organization," Koteas said of his character. "He's going to get indicted. So it sounds grim, but at the same time it's very funny. It's a great script and a first-time director. Woody Harrelson was great. Kat Dennings was great. So it could be good. It was a great experience, actually."
