Check These Out: Unused Posters for Duncan Jones' Moon
It's always heartbreaking to get a glimpse of the posters that were not used in a film's marketing campaign. One of the most recent examples of this was the beautiful hand-drawn poster for Inglourious Basterds that James Goodridge drew. Another set of unused posters have been dug up by our friends at Quiet Earth for Duncan Jones' brilliant low-budget sci-fi flick Moon that hit theaters earlier this summer. While I liked the actual poster they ended up using (it was handpicked by Duncan), some of these posters are also pretty gorgeous and I'm sad we never got to see them until now. They're definitely worth checking out, so read on!
As far as I know, these aren't fan art, they were professionally created, just never used. My favorite one is the lower left one, with Sam in that circle in the middle. I just think it flows great and looks gorgeous. All of them do, but that's my personal favorite. If you haven't seen Moon yet, I highly suggest you try and see it as soon as you can, somehow, some way (although don't pirate it, that shows no respect for the filmmaker). It's a great film (read my Sundance review) that everyone I've sent to see has ended up loving. And it's never too late to see a great film like this. Maybe these posters will encourage a few more of you to finally go see it?
