Check This Out: Bold UK Quad Poster for Mexican Thriller 'Miss Bala'
"Explosive, Riveting…", "A Blistering Firecracker" indeed! A brand new, grungy yellow colored UK quad poster has debuted online for Gerardo Naranjo's Miss Bala, the Mexican thriller that earned rave reviews in Cannes and played at the Toronto Film Fest this last week. We also just featured the first official trailer for this film a few weeks ago, which is supposedly getting a US release in January, but we still don't know details. Seen on the poster besides the bullets is Stephanie Sigman as Laura Guerrero, a beauty queen wannabe who gets caught in the Mexican drug wars. One of my favorite indie gems of the year, check it out!
The story of a beautiful young woman named Laura Guerrero (played by Stephanie Sigman) clinging on to her dream to become a beauty contest queen in an impoverished Mexico dominated by organized crime.
Miss Bala is both written and directed by up-and-coming Mexican filmmaker Gerardo Naranjo, of a few other films previously, including Drama/Mex, I'm Going to Explode and Revolución. The screenplay was written by Naranjo and Mauricio Katz. This first premiered at the Cannes Film Festival, where it received quite a bit of praise and acclaim. As far as we know, 20th Century Fox is distributing even in the US, but we don't have any actual info on the US release yet, so stay tuned for updates. Interested in catching this?
