As we hurl towards another three-day holiday weekend in the USA, I’ve noticed a buzz trending soon to a theatre near you…(IMP)
…all the way back to the 70s (French Connection)! (IMP)
The indie female-driven thriller, Black Rock, washes up at movie theatres this weekend — and I’m digging the new spin on a classic taken by Ignition Print for the one-sheet. Inspired by such designers as Bill Gold (Deliverance), Jason Munn (Treasure Island Music Festival), and Steve Frankfurt (Rosemary’s Baby), this Black Rock poster is solid! (IMP)
Before Bill O’Reilly, Rush Limbaugh, Glenn Beck, and Sean Hannity, there was a big mouthed, Shepard Smith-looking TV talk show host called Morton Downey. And now you can see Evocateur, the documentary about the man — and the one-sheet which is a clever take-off on the famous Pink Floyd poster.
Who needs a pretty face on your poster if your movie is about stealing pretty things? (IMP)
Honest Abe would be rolling over in his grave if he knew that this John Wilkes Booth-inspired poster for Birth of A Nation (left) recently sold for over $48,000…(HA)
Anybody who went to English class in the past sixty years or so has probably read J.D. Salinger’s classic coming-of-age novel, The Catcher in the Rye (below, right).
And now there’s a documentary coming out soon about the notoriously reclusive (now deceased) author, which is aptly-titled, Salinger — and I’m liking the paperback cover-inspired poster. (THR)
Another disturbing trend: American disaster movies. (IMP)
