Fantastic Poster for Lee Daniels' Sundance Hit Precious
If you're scratching your head wondering what film Precious is - it was formerly know as Push: Based on the Novel by Sapphire when it premiered at Sundance. No, not the superhero flick, but the one that won both the Grand Jury Prize and Audience Award. It's premiering at the Cannes Film Festival in the next few weeks as well, where I'm sure it'll gain even more acclaim. Our friends over at Cinematical have debuted the official poster for Precious and it's quite spectacular. It's designed in the same vein as the old school Hitchcock posters designed by Saul Bass, if you didn't already recognize. Check out the full poster below.
I actually got to see Precious at Sundance and haven't had a chance to talk about it since seeing it. It is a tremendous film, that goes without saying, but it's so emotionally draining that I don't even know if I'll ever be able to watch it again. I say that as a good thing, as not many films have that kind of power, and it's an amazing experience watching it. Precious is directed by Shadowboxer director Lee Daniels. The film stars Mo'Nique, Lenny Kravitz, Mariah Carey, and one of the most amazing first-time lead actresses you'll ever see, Gabby Sidibe. I expect Lionsgate will debut a trailer for this fairly soon, so stay tuned for updates!

The movie IS very draining but also very well done. I know this is hard to believe right now but once everyone sees the film it will be a no-brainer, Monique is going to get an Oscar nomination for this. She's come a long way from "Phat Girlz" and "Soul Plane." 🙂

I saw a preview a few months ago, and it looked like a must-see. And judging from the preview, it looks like it's a definite, emotionally-charged film. Can't wait.

Looking at the cast it makes me wonder how this movie could be good. Lenny Kravitz.....Mariah Carey???? But I'll take your word for it

I found a clip of it on youtue with Mariah, and she's unrecognizable and really good. This poster is incredible and briliant, especially knowing what the story is about. I don't know about Kravitz though. I'm glad to see Oprah and Tyler Perry got on board as producers because this is a film that could possibly NOT be seen by a wide African American audience, let alone a wide audience in general, if there aren't names on this. Another "tough" film that didn't get pushed right was The Woodsman, and Damon Dash, (of Rockafella Records) was producing it. I hope this does better b/c it's a real issue with lots of causes. The same thing happened to a girl at my high school in Michigan.
