Duncan Jones' Moon Sci-Fi Also Gets a Brilliant Poster

Yesterday afternoon we debuted the fantastic trailer for Duncan Jones' indie sci-fi flick Moon starring Sam Rockwell. We thought it couldn't get any better, but it has. AICN debuted the poster last night, too, and it's just as stunning as the trailer. I was already very fond of the teaser poster put out late last year and this is just as beautiful. Simple, but effective, powerful but subtle, the perfect combination of art and function, at least for a poster. Oddly, I'm very satisfied with the marketing for Moon so far, which is quite impressive for Sony Pictures Classics. Anyway, if you thought the trailer was great, be sure to check out the poster, too.

Moon Poster

Astronaut Sam Bell (Sam Rockwell) has a quintessentially personal encounter toward the end of his three-year stint on the Moon, where he, working alongside his intelligent computer, GERTY, sends back to Earth parcels of Helium 3, a resource that has helped diminish our planet's power problems.

Moon is directed by first-time filmmaker Duncan Jones, a former ad exec turned filmmaker of only a sci-fi short from 2000 called Whistle previously. The original story was written by Jones, and the screenplay was written by Nathan Parker. This first premiered at the Sundance Film Festival earlier this year, where it was bought by Sony Pictures Classics. Moon will arrive in limited theaters starting on June 12th this year.

    Ummm, 950,000 miles to which moon? It couldn't be our moon which is only 250,000 miles away, so it must be some other moon. Not a good start.

    oberooly I heard someone on another site that it's either ...A: improper marketing or B: a plot point... I'm going w/ B because I know they're not stupid... lol

    Would be a lot better without that guy on it.

    #6, the guy's on it to illustrate his isolation. Very nice poster.
  • kindbuddy
    I look at the poster again and I figured the 950,000 miles away is for shock value and if you look at the trailer he's all alone up there. I bet if feels like he's more than 250,000 miles away psychologically. LOL Alex just tell me what happens... j/k!

    The director'scommented on his twitter that "They fucked up the number on my poster!" or something to that effect.
