Cannes Kind of Love…

The new poster for The 2013 Cannes Film Festival is a tribute of sorts to the 1960s Paul Newman-Joanne Woodward starrer, A New Kind of Love — although I’ve always had a deep crush on the French version by Roger Soubie (top right). (DHD)

I’ll Be Damned!

Akiko Stehrenberger is going to hell — okay, just movie poster hell — but that’s a good thing, as her haunting new Kiss of the Damned one-sheet is sure to become a horror poster classic.

Part 90s Great Expectations, part 70s Bob Peak, Stehrenberger adapts the spirits of artists’ past to create something memorable. (IMP)
