Spike Lee's Miracle at St. Anna Poster - What is Disney Hiding?
I really don't care about the ongoing battle between Spike Lee and Clint Eastwood, so instead of bantering about that fiasco, I thought I'd bring you guys some news that you might really care about. The first poster for Spike Lee's upcoming WWII drama Miracle at St. Anna has debuted courtesy of Cinematical and it's pretty impressive. However, there's a lot more to this discussion than just a well-designed poster. The film chronicles the story of four black American soldiers who are members of the US Army as part of the all-black 92nd Buffalo Soldier Division stationed in Tuscany, Italy during World War II.
Before I go on any further, take a look at the new poster in all of its glory below.
Update: Apparently my claim about Disney's position on this wasn't as strong as I first thought. Either way, I think it's best to let you view this and enjoy it on your own without any of my own opinion.
Note: This poster is actually the same image that's used on the cover of the book that the film is based off of. It's not the original cover, but rather a recent reprint used to tie-in with the movie. I wondering if they're playing off of the aspect that it doesn't matter what race you are - you can still be a hero?
Miracle at St. Anna is directed by the legendary Spike Lee, of Malcolm X, He Got Game, Summer of Sam, 25th Hour, and Inside Man previously. The film is based on a novel written by James McBride with a screenplay penned by McBride himself. Touchstone / Disney is releasing Miracle at St. Anna in theaters this September 26th.
