Fox Searchlight Unveils Final Notorious Poster

No dream is too big. Remember back in September, Fox Searchlight held a contest to see which poster people liked more for Notorious? Well it looks like the winner has been crowned today and it seems like everyone chose the worst one. We've included the final poster in high res below for you're viewing pleasure. I don't know about you, but I would've much rather preferred either one of the other posters. This one just seems too dark and unexciting - it doesn't grab my attention at all. I will admit, however, that this movie is gaining quite a bit of buzz. After that last trailer, even I actually want to see this. How about you?
Fans of Notorious B.I.G.'s music may want to check out the soundtrack, due out in January, the features a new Biggie track (believe it or not) and more from Jay-Z, Jadakiss, and others.
Notorious is directed by producer and filmmaker George Tillman Jr., of Soul Food and Men of Honor previously. The screenplay was written by Reggie Rock Bythewood (Get on the Bus, Biker Boyz) and Cheo Hodari Coker. Fox Searchlight is distributing Notorious and will be premiering it in limited theaters starting on January 16th, 2009. Anyone already planning on seeing this in theaters?
