Check This Out: Audacious Text-Only Poster for Antichrist
Almost all the marketing material we've seen for Lars von Trier's Antichrist so far (photos, posters) has been pretty edgy and probably wouldn't be approved by the MPAA. So for the official UK poster, Artificial Eye whipped up this one sheet that contains nothing but text. And best of all, it's probably the smartest way to market this movie, or at least warn people about what they're getting into. Having seen Antichrist in Cannes (read my review) I can tell you that everything this poster says is completely accurate - every last word. If any of this makes you want to actually see it, then maybe, just maybe, it's the right film for you.
A grieving couple (Dafoe and Gainsbourg) retreats to their cabin 'Eden' in the woods, hoping to repair their broken hearts and troubled marriage. But nature takes its course and things go from bad to worse.
Antichrist is both written and directed by prolific Danish filmmaker Lars von Trier, of an extensive number of past films, including Nocturne, The Element of Crime, Dancer in the Dark, Dogville, Manderlay, and The Boss of It All most recently. After premiering at the Cannes Film Festival, the film was picked up for US distribution by IFC. They're now bringing Antichrist to very limited theaters starting on October 23rd.
