Awesome Saul Bass Style Burn After Reading Poster!
The moment we debuted the trailer for the Coen Brother's Burn After Reading, I knew it would be something unique. Now they've gone and designed one of the best posters you'll see all year. Cinematical has exclusively debuted the first poster for Burn After Reading and it's quite amazing. In case you notice it looks familiar, that's because it's a throwback to the designs of Saul Bass, who created some of the most memorable posters for movies like Hitchcock's Vertigo and North by Northwest, Otto Preminger's Anatomy of a Murder and Bunny Lake is Missing, Robert Wise's West Side Story, and so on. If you really want to see one of the best poster designs all year, then make sure you check out this one.
If you're curious to check out a few of Saul Bass' other posters, we've put together a couple of examples below. You can see a good collection of them here. All of these designs are quite wonderful and it's great to see Burn After Reading going back to this style with their poster. Does this poster make you more excited for Burn After Reading?
Burn After Reading is both written and directed by Joel and Ethan Coen, the directing duo behind Fargo, The Big Lebowski, O Brother, Where Art Thou?, and most recently the Oscar winning No Country for Old Men.
