All those grinning faces, mixed sizes of Times New Roman font with alternative colours and the neat stripes. Which brings me to the newly released poster for Nora Ephron's Julie & Julia, a movie I am actually very much looking forward to.
Is it too hard for them to even use a different font? Apparently not. At least the conceit works on this one since the two characters, if we are to believe the real life timeline the film follows, never actually meet so they are two entirely separate stories, but it's still lazy design. And to think, Meryl Streep also has a Nancy Meyers movie out this year (the same director behind two of the three above movies) and if that gets a poster just like this one...? I think I'm gonna explode.
