Cobra yoga pose at home?
A pose at the movies?
Check…and, yep, yes, the movie poster for the film “Cobra” is a homage to the pose.
The poster, which was released this week, shows a photo of a young woman on her knees with her arms extended out and her palms facing upwards.
She holds the pose in front of the camera, with her head tilted to the side and her arms raised up, looking up at the ceiling.
“Crazy Pose,” directed by John Ridley, was released in October.
The title is a play on “Crazys pose at work,” a reference to the movie’s opening scene, in which the characters sit on the floor, with their arms outstretched.
The movie is set in an alternative reality where the Cobra pose is alive and well.
The film is an adaptation of the novel by author Joe Campbell, which is about a group of teenagers who are recruited to join a Cobra clan.
The group members must learn to harness the power of the Cobra Pose, an ancient Japanese ritual practiced by ancient Japanese warrior clans to transform into ferocious warriors.
“I love this movie,” said filmmaker Rob Liefeld.
“We took that book and ran with it.”
The title comes from a poem written by a Cobra warrior, who calls on a Cobra woman to protect him and his tribe.
“When I saw that poster, I said, ‘I can’t wait to see it in the theaters.’
I love the fact that it’s inspired by the book.”
“Cobras Pose” is available now on Netflix.
