New Posters: Whatever Works, Diane Kruger Basterd, Agora

Three very different posters have arrived today and can all be seen below. The first one is for Woody Allen's Whatever Works (via NY Mag) and uses a very simple, very effective design featuring Larry David looking like a goofball, shrugging like he does often in the film. The second one is for Quentin Tarantino's Inlgourious Basterds (via twitter) and is a continuation of their recent character poster series, but this time, "Diane Kruger is a Basterd." And the third one is for Alejandro Amenábar's historical epic Agora (via Rope of Silicon), starring Rachel Weisz, that will be premiering at the Cannes Film Festival next month.
I don't really have a favorite out of these three, but I really like the Agora poster, and I think it deserves to be seen biggest (because of how beautiful and epic it looks). However, I had the chance to see Whatever Works (read my review) and it's fantastic, so I wanted to feature that poster as well. Woody Allen's Whatever Works arrives in limited theaters starting on June 19th this summer. Quentin Tarantino's Inlgourious Basterds arrives in theaters starting on August 21st after premiering at Cannes. Alejandro Amenábar's Agora will also be showing at Cannes, where it will be looking for a distributor to pick it up.
