New 'BIRTH OF A NATION' Poster Sees Star in American Flag Noose...

by Mia Galuppo, The Hollywood Reporter

The latest poster for Nate Parker's Birth of a Nation continues the theme of powerful historical images for the movie's marketing campaign. 

The one-sheet, which debuted on Tidal, shows Parker's character, Nat Turner, being hung by a noose made out of the American flag. 

The movie, which Parker wrote, directed, starred in and produced, follows the story of Turner and his failed slave rebellion in the antebellum South. The incredibly powerful image is the latest to debut for the historical drama, whose previous poster was a stylized version of the American flag with stripes made up of members of Turner's ill-fated slave revolt. 

The Sundance standout, which sold for $17.5 million to Fox Searchlight, is already expected to play a big role in the upcoming awards season. It is set to hit theaters on Oct. 7.
