Cinematical has just received a poster and banner for CBS Films' Extraordinary Measures, which will be hitting theaters on January 22, 2010. Yes, folks, those determined faces are for real -- the action flicks and laughs are on hold as Brendan Fraser and Harrison Ford are dipping into a little dramatic work, and this time it's to relay the true story of John Crowley and his efforts to cure his kids' life-threatening disease. Robert Nelson Jacobs adapted Geeta Anand's book (Cure), and Tom Vaughn (What Happened in Vegas) directed the feature.
Fraser stars as Crowley, a man working his way up in corporate America. He's got a loving family (Keri Russell plays his wife), and everything seems to be working out splendidly. But then his two children are diagnosed with a fatal disease. He quits his job, and devotes his time and efforts into saving his children by teaming up with "a brilliant, but unappreciated and unconventional scientist" (Ford). Together they start a bio-tech company to develop a life-saving drug and "this unlikely alliance eventually develops into mutual respect as they battle the medical and business establishments in a fight against the system – and time."
Check out both posters in all their full-sized glory in the gallery below.
