Funky New Vintage Poster for 'Rare Exports: A Christmas Tale'
They're going overboard trying to sell this movie to audiences, but maybe it will work after all. Oscilloscope has unveiled the official US poster for the domestic release of Finnish flick Rare Exports: A Christmas Tale over on ShockTillYouDrop. We featured the official US trailer for this Santa Claus story just last week, so everyone should know what it's about by now. I guess they wanted the vintage A Christmas Story kind of hand-painted look with this, but it seems a bit wacky. The kid and the angry Santa (who isn't actually Santa, in the film or elsewhere, it's a big bait and switch) are the most appealing parts of this. Check it out below!
A movie for those who think they don't believe in Santa Claus anymore… In the depths of the Korvatunturi mountains, 486M deep, lies the closest ever guarded secret of Christmas… The time has come to dig it up!
Rare Exports is written and directed by Finnish filmmaker Jalmari Helander, who actually adapted his own award winning short films into this full-length feature. It was shot on an estimated budget of €2 million late last year. This premiered at the Toronto Film Festival and Fantastic Fest and was picked up by Oscilloscope Pictures for its US release. Rare Exports arrives in New York on December 3rd and hits L.A. on the 10th.
