Another Great Poster for Steven Soderbergh's Che: Part Two
If you haven't already noticed, I'm a big admirer of great poster designs. Unfortunately we all too often see a lot of terrible posters over the year. So when one pops up that breaks the norm and looks fantastic, I'm always excited to share it. And thankfully, Steven Soderbergh's Che has been gaining momentum anyway due to its expansion into 9 more cities over the next few weeks. Thanks to Empire we've got our first look at the UK quad poster for Che: Part Two. The reason why I love this poster so much is because they took a considerably old and stale photo and gave it new life and new energy on a fantastic poster.
For those interested, the back-to-back "Roadshow Edition" of Che will be expanding to theaters in Boston, Chicago, Dallas, Houston, Minneapolis, Philadelphia, San Francisco, Seattle, and Washington DC starting on January 16th. Additionally, beginning on January 21st, Che will also be available at home via IFC In Theaters on-demand service. I highly suggest checking it out in theaters if you have the opportunity!
Che is a true life historical epic made up of two individual films (The Argentine and Guerrilla) that chronicle the life of Argentinian revolutionary Ernesto Che Guevara. Both films are directed by Steven Soderbergh, of Traffic, Solaris, The Good German, and the Ocean's trilogy previously. The screenplays were written by Peter Buchman, of Jurassic Park III and Eragon previously, and are based on Guevara's actual memoirs. IFC Films is releasing both films together in limited theaters on December 12th, followed by individual theatrical releases for each film on its own starting in early January 2009.
