Kooky New Poster for Steven Soderbergh's The Informant!
No, that image above is not a part of the new poster (you have to read on to see what it looks like)! I just love the marketing for this movie. Whoever has been designing the posters for Steven Soderbergh's The Informant! deserves some kind of award for the craziest, kookiest, most amusing posters of the year. The first one that debuted with the trailer featured a goofy looking Matt Damon and the word "Unbelievable!" across the entire thing. This one is even crazier than previous but I still just love it! As for whether or not it'll actually help sell the movie to audiences, well, that is yet to be seen. Anyway, check out the poster!
The government decides to go after an agri-business giant with a price-fixing accusation, based on the evidence submitted by their star witness, vice president turned informant Mark Whitacre (Matt Damon).
The Informant! is directed by Oscar winning filmmaker Steven Soderbergh, of Out of Sight, Traffic, Solaris, The Good German, the Ocean's Trilogy, Che, and The Girlfriend Experience most recently. The screenplay was adapted by Scott Z. Burns, of The Bourne Ultimatum previously, and is based on Kurt Eichenwald's book of the same name. Warner Brothers is bringing The Informant to theaters on October 9th this fall.

I'm really looking forward to this. But just pointing something out, the trailer gave me a bit of a "Burn After Reading" vibe... and so does this poster.

It's nice to know that Saul Bass is still having an impact on poster design. This is great! Matt Damon looks like he's related to Bob Stencil.
