Gorgeous New Minimalistic Japanese Poster for The Wolfman
Okay, okay, I know that no one wants to talk about The Wolfman anymore given that it's not the greatest movie and it only made $36 million over the weekend at the box office (at least it's in third place). However, I just came across this today (via IMPAwards) and it's too incredible for me to pass up. I consider myself a connoisseur of the best movie posters, and this poster here is easily one of my all-time favorites. I love the minimalistic design of it and everything else is just brilliant. No need to show any actors or the werewolf itself or anything but a bit of blood and some spooky trees. This is some impressive design work - check it!
Lawrence Talbot, a haunted nobleman, is lured back to his family estate after his brother vanishes. Upon his return and after being reunited with his estranged father, Talbot is bitten and cursed by a werewolf.
The Wolfman is directed by best visual effects Oscar winner Joe Johnston, of Honey I Shrunk the Kids, The Rocketeer, Jumanji, October Sky, Jurassic Park III, and Hidalgo previously. The screenplay was co-written by Andrew Kevin Walker (Se7en, 8MM, Sleepy Hollow) and David Self (The Haunting, Thirteen Days, Road to Perdition). Universal will be bringing The Wolfman to theaters on February 12th in just under a month.
