What are you really worth? I love this poster, totally love it. This is a week for posters, we've been seeing a lot of them, and they seem to be some of the best of the year (find all of our poster debuts here). Columbia Pictures has released the first official poster (found via RopeofSilicon) for Bennett Miller's Moneyball, the baseball drama starring Brad Pitt, Jonah Hill and Philip Seymour Hoffman. We've already seen the first trailer and even posted a TV spot recently, so we know what this is about and how good it looks, but this is the cherry on top that really does it for me. Such a minimalistic but completely fantastic poster. See it below!
If you want to find a high res version of this poster, head to our friend's site at RopeofSilicon. Thoughts?
The story of Oakland A's general manager Billy Beane's (Brad Pitt) successful attempt to put together a winning baseball club on a budget by employing computer-generated analysis to draft a roster of players.
Moneyball is directed by Oscar nominated filmmaker Bennett Miller, of The Cruise and Capote previously. The screenplay was written/rewritten by Oscar winning writers Steven Zaillian (Clear and Present Danger, Gangs of New York, American Gangster) and Aaron Sorkin (A Few Good Men, Charlie Wilson's War, The Social Network), originally based on Michael Lewis' nonfiction book. Columbia Pictures will be bringing Moneyball to theaters starting on September 23rd this fall, right near the end of the 2011 baseball season.
