Carrie On…

If you’re excited about the new Carrie reboot hitting theatres in March 2013, then you’re going to have to wait a little longer — as the film’s release has been pushed back to October 18, 2013 — just in time to capitalize on the pre-Halloween crowd. (IMP)

Jouineau Bourduge

No, this post is not a clever take on Woody Allen’s famous “Juneau, Alaska” quip or even about a fancy bordeaux — rather, it’s the name of a prominent French movie poster artist who signed his work with the nom de plume, Jouineau Bourduge.

And like the film/art gallery mentioned a few months ago, Jouineau Bourduge, along with René Ferraci, were two French designers who led the charge in the late 1960s and 1970s when movie studios made the transition from illustration to photography for the majority of artwork on their marketing materials. Plus, JB’s in MoMA, so he must be good!

EMoviePoster Trifecta!

There’s an International/non-U.S. poster sale ending today at and I thought I’d showcase some of my favorite, but strange and wonderful artists.

In this corner, the Danish drama king, Stevenov…

Then there’s the Polish purist, Andrzej Krajewski

And last but not least, the French leg-man, Jouineau Bourduge

Risky Businesses

Speaking of Jouineau Bourduge, aside from doing many other 60’s, 70’s and 80’s classics, he is also credited with the French version of Risky Business (far right), as seen below in this poster comparison.

But I’m a little confused: is that supposed to be sexy or just misogynistic since the car is driving over the women (and not vice versa like in the USA and Italian one-sheets)?
