Amy’s Ten Highlights of 2010 Movie Posters
9. The Living Wake
According to IMDb, The Living Wake is listed as 2007, but it opened May 16th 2010. I have no idea what the film is about, but when seeing this poster, it immediately grabbed my attention. It’s the hand written title, as if using a simple ballpoint pen on a napkin, with the running ink and the smudges. It would work well to set itself apart from the generic movie posters at multiplexes.
8. Prince of Broadway
Listed as a 2008 production on IMDb, Prince of Broadway opened on September 3rd 2010. The poster gives you the sense of the visual style of this drama about two men and their lives in the New York wholesale fashion district. And please, that bling on the little kid is a total WIN.
7. Thunder Soul
Ahh Afros, the 70s, and the music. Just with a simple illustration, the poster, by Concept Arts, is able to convey all of this, making it stand out in a crowded multiplex. Thunder Soul is a documentary about teacher Conrad Johnson who turned a school’s jazz band into a funk powerhouse. Now after 35 years, the students give back.
