King of California Posters in Time for Sundance
by Alex Billington
January 17, 2007
There's a film debuting at Sundance called King of California. It stars the always appealing Evan Rachel Wood and our favorite Michael Douglas as father-daughter in a story where Douglas, a very mentally unstable man, gets let out of a mental institution and tries to convince his daughter, Rachel Wood, that there's Spanish gold buried in the city. Now, at first glance, this sounds either hilarious or very strange, however once you take a look at the trailer , it will sell you. And just in time for Sundance, a set of posters have showed up as well.
Normally we don't go around posting every last poster that gets released, because that is already done exquisitely by IMPAwards.com. However, given that this is the one film that I am looking forward to the most at Sundance, and also given how much I love these posters, I thought it would be worthwhile to arrange this film spotlight. Take a look at these posters that just came out.
I love everything about these posters: the logo, the color, the position of each person, their duality (they fit together with the credit text), and Michael Douglas's expression that fits perfectly in with character. It's early on in the year and these are already some of my favorite posters!
For those interested, stay tuned right here on FirstShowing.net for the latest Sundance coverage and a brief review and my reaction to the film after the screening I'll be catching!
