These past few weeks have given us some really great new poster art for some upcoming films, so it’s time to take a closer look at the most recent one-sheets. Briefly:
- Knight of Cups – This Knight of Cups poster is an early frontrunner for the best of the year. Terrence Malick’s poetic Hollywood-set drama recently made its world premiere at the Berlin Film Festival, which is why this one-sheet is dropping now. The art is a fantastic play on the title, which refers to a tarot card reading. Christian Bale, Natalie Portman, and Cate Blanchett lead the stacked ensemble, and the film should arrive in domestic theaters later this year.
- While We’re Young – The first poster for Noah Baumbach’s fantastic new comedy is simplistic in form, but it gets the point across. The comedy revolves around a middle-aged couple (Ben Stiller and Naomi Watts) trying to hold onto their youth by striking up a friendship with a pair of twentysomethings (Adam Driver and Amanda Seyfried). The pic opens on March 27th, and you can read Phil’s review from TIFF here.
- Child 44 – Summit Entertainment goes the artistic route with the new poster for this Cold War-set thriller starring Tom Hardy, Gary Oldman, and Noomi Rapace, and the results are fantastic. The film opens in theaters on April 14th.
- Mr. Holmes – The teaser poster for Bill Condon’s (Gods and Monsters) upcoming drama starring Ian McKellen as a retired Sherlock Holmes gets right to the point without giving too much away. The film premiered at Berlinale and will be in theaters later this year.
- Get Hard – A pair of new posters for the upcoming Will Ferrell/Kevin Hart comedy offer up “rules” for preparing for a prison sentence. Ferrell’s choice of wardrobe is A+. The film opens on March 27th.
- Run All Night – The first one-sheet and a series of character posters for Jaume Collet-Serra’s (Non-Stop) latest thriller tease the cold nature of the Liam Neeson-fronted film, but the official one-sheet is a pretty horrendous piece of artwork. The film opens on March 13th.
