Speaking of hot movie posters

This one makes me feel a little tickly inside.

The art of the movie poster is essentially lost these days. Acres upon acres of just uninspired shit (I guess it matches many of the uninspired hollywood films we see all the time), but every once in awhile some "old-fashioned" attention is given to a poster and it's a treat for a visual guy like myself.

I would like to have seen an illustrated Rockwell in the center of the circles instead of the photograph, and I'm not entirely sure about the multiple shades of grey flying forward effect on his name in the upper left (one simple white line of text would have been effective, I think), but overall this stylish poster really stands out from a lot you see these days.

It reminds me of an old Solaris poster I came across a few weeks ago. (You should be able to click on either of these posters for a higher resolution image)

I really want to see the film itself. I've not really had the funds lately to make any theatre trips, so it may have to wait until a DVD release. Sadness.... I've heard good things about the film so far from friends.

In the meantime, we'll just watch the trailer! Yay!

I'm late to the game here...

I really get a 2001 meets Solaris vibe from it.

That is a great poster, and the movie looks fantastic. It is, or was playing at one of the art-house theaters not too far from me, but I haven't had the chance to go and see it. Rockwell is a great actor.
