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!
