Stunning Saul Bass Inspired Poster for Ryan Reynolds' Buried!
Paul Conroy isn't ready to die. I wasn't expecting to see another poster for Ryan Reynolds' Buried for quite a while following that motion poster, but Lionsgate has decided to debut another new posters on MTV today. This new one is absolutely stunning, a Saul Bass (specifically Vertigo) inspired poster that flips the dizzying height visuals into dizzying depths, to emphasize and remind us that Paul Conroy has been buried alive in a coffin underground. I'm absolutely loving the marketing they're doing for Buried so far, I just hope they can keep it strictly visual and this vague before it hits in October (it'll make a difference). Check out the poster!
A U.S. contractor working in Iraq awakes to find he is buried alive inside a coffin. With only a lighter and a cell phone it's a race against time to escape this claustrophobic death trap. Buried is directed by Spanish filmmaker Rodrigo Cortés, of the films 15 Days, The Contestant, and Dirt Devil previously. The screenplay was written by first-time writer Chris Sparling. This was one of my favorite films from Sundance (read my review) and I can't wait for everyone else to be able to experience it as well! Buried hits theaters in October.
