New international poster for Oren Peli’s THE CHERNOBYL DIARIES debuts

I like Oren Peli. I think PARANORMAL ACTIVITY helped to make found footage a respectable and profitable vessel for horror, and since I adore found footage, I have him to thank for it. While I haven't been too fond of many of the other films he's produced, I have high hopes for his newest film, THE CHERNOBYL DIARIES.

The film marks a departure from the found footage style associated with Peli, and while the initial poster was underwhelming, the newly debuted international poster for the film is creepy enough to pique my interest. Check out a high-res version of the image after the jump, as well as the trailer for the film.

The film follows a group of six young tourists who, looking to go off the beaten path, hire an “extreme tour” guide. Ignoring warnings, he takes them into the city of Pripyat, the former home to the workers of the Chernobyl nuclear reactor, but a deserted town since the disaster more than 25 years ago. After a brief exploration of the abandoned city, however, the group soon finds themselves stranded, only to discover that they are not alone.
