More Seduction on the 'Blue Is the Warmest Color' Official US Poster
With the release of Cannes Palme d'Or winner Blue is the Warmest Color coming up in October, IFC / Sundance Selects is firing up their marketing starting with the official US trailer for the NC-17 rated lesbian love story, and now a poster to along with it. Despite that rating and sex scenes controversy/discussion, it's one of the best films of the year and I highly recommend it because it's one of the best love stories put to celluloid this year. I'm a big fan of the original French poster and the fan-made painted poster for this film, however this art seems to focus more on the lesbian love angle than anything. But I do like the blue accents.
Here's the new US poster for Abdellatif Kechiche's Blue Is the Warmest Color, originally via BuzzFeed:
Update! For those interested in seeing more artwork, here are two other French posters for La vie d'Adèle:
Blue is the Warmest Color, originally called La vie d'Adèle: chapitre 1 & 2 in French, is directed by French-Tunisian filmmaker Abdellatif Kechiche, who co-wrote the script with Ghalia Lacroix based on Julie Maroh's graphic novel. Adèle Exarchopoulos is a young woman whose longings and ecstasies and losses are charted across a span of several years. Léa Seydoux (Midnight in Paris) is the older woman who excites her desire and becomes the love of her life. The film originally premiered at the 2013 Cannes Film Festival where it won the coveted Palme d'Or prize (and was my favorite film of the festival). IFC & Sundance Selects will be releasing Blue is the Warmest Color in limited theaters starting October 25th this fall. See the trailer here.
