Check Out the First Official Poster for Richard Ayoade's 'Submarine'
Looks like they're rolling out the first phase of marketing for Richard Ayoade's fantastic indie Submarine, which is also showing at the Sundance Film Festival this week. MTV (via The Playlist) just debuted the first official poster for the film, starring Craig Roberts as the kooky 15-year-old Oliver Tate, seen on the poster. I've already preached my praise for this film in my glowing 9.5/10 review from Toronto, but I'm not the only one who loved it. /Film's David Chen saw it at Sundance, saying: "The quirk of Juno, the whimsy of Gondry, the light-heartedness of Wes Anderson, the melancholy of 500 Days of Summer. I loved it!" In full below!
I think this is a beautifully designed minimalistic poster, but I honestly don't know if it's going to do a great job of selling the film to those that don't know about it. We've used that exact photo of Oliver Tate over and over, but it doesn't exactly capture the tone/story as well as it could. Maybe we'll see another poster before release. The Weinstein Company bought the film in Toronto but hasn't set an exact release date for the US yet. Submarine is based on Joe Dunthorne's novel and also stars Yasmin Paige, Paddy Considine and Sally Hawkins. We haven't seen a trailer for this yet either but we'll definitely let you know once they release one.
