Black Rock Friday!

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)

French Kitchen Sink Poster!

Men with guns, a big cargo ship, women in various states of undress, and a bunch of astronauts (or possibly, a haz-mat team)…It’s time again for another French kitchen sink poster!

The Great Gatsby-father?

A fascinating story to come out of next week’s release of Baz Luhrmann’s The Great Gatsby

Did you know that Francis Ford Coppola was hired to do a rewrite on the 1974 version of Gatsby (with Robert Redford) — right before The Godfather was released? Apparently Redford liked his work so much on The Way We Were (another uncredited polish — not Polish like the Flisak poster below on the left) — that FFC was brought in to save the day. Town & Country gives Coppola’s first-hand account of being holed up in a Paris hotel room, battling to capture the ghosts of F. Scott Fitzgerald’s classic novel.

Hmmm, sounds an awful lot like Woody Allen’s Midnight In Paris! (THR)

Classic Car Talk!

The new Gatsby poster adds some polish to the car movie poster.
But if you’re really serious about your automotive-inspired one-sheets, you’ll get plenty of mileage out of Paul Veysey’s Motorin’ Movie Posters book.(IMP)

Hudson Hawn!

Like mother, like daughter — or, if Goldie Hawn and Kate Hudson were a tag team wrestling duo, you could call ’em Hudson Hawk Hawn (not to be confused with Raquel Welch-port or Barbie Aniston)! Although neither family members have set the box office on fire recently, their history of romantic comedy movie posters are solid Gold-ie!(IMP)
