Stop Me If You Think That You've Heard This One Before

Readers, where have you seen this new State of Play poster before?


Oh, that's right. It is almost an exact replica of the poster for Frost Nixon.


Somebody at that ad agency needs a new template.

ESPECIALLY since they're BOTH from Universal. Coincidence? I think not.

They're both incredibly similar to the american DVD covers of: Cassandra's Dream, Street Kings, We Own the Night, and Eastern Promises.

I didn't think that it was that wonderful of a design the first time!

Oh trust me, I know! It's really such a waste. Although, it's much better than the stripey pattern or, even worse, this design, which is perhaps the most pointless poster ever made.

That He's Just Not That Into You poster looks like something I could have made with my limited knowledge of Photoshop! I can't believe they decided to go with that one.

In agreement on the HJNTIY poster. But at least that one has a nice big picture of Ginnifer Goodwin.

It actually took a second for me to figure out why the poster sucked, then I realized that there was more poster above her.

spartickes said...

Do you have an example of the stripey pattern?

Glenn said...

how about this? Oh god, how about that! That design is the bane of my poster-loving existence.

AHHH Make it stop make it stop! Point taken. Stripey thing sucks. It looks like something my mother would make in a scrapbooking class.

Glenn said...

Indeed. Stripey designs and empty seas of white are just the worst!
