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)

Bert Stern has worked with Hollywood’s biggest stars — and shot the movie poster for Lolita, as well as the recent Taschen book on Marilyn Monroe. And now there’s a new documentary about the photographer called Bert Stern: Original Mad Man.(Film/Art)

Has anybody ever wondered if Brian DePalma’s French movie posters (both designed by Michel Landi) have a foot shoe fetish?
