Choose Your Favorite 500 Days of Summer Poster!
This is officially a promotion for SlashFilm, but I can't help myself, I've got to write about it as well. Fox Searchlight has launched a small contest on their website for 500 Days of Summer to help them choose the poster for the film. They've got four options up and are asking people to vote on their favorite design. Oddly enough, this isn't the first time they've done this for this film specifically - they ran a similar contest late last year before anyone even knew what this was film was all about, so it didn't get any real exposure. Anyway, take a look at the options below and head over to the voting website to see them full-size.
My vote goes to the second one in from the left, that is seen at the top of this post as well. As much as I love this film, and I do love it quite a damn bit (please watch the trailer if you haven't yet), I'm don't actually love all of these. A few of them seem like the tacky romantic comedy posters that I really hate seeing. Like the one on the far right, with Zooey Deschanel's face, I just think it's a bit too cheesy for my tastes. I also love the one with the big 500 on it, but it's not better than my other fave. Make sure you look at these full-size, because they look a lot better than the small versions I've put up above. Which is your favorite?
