Check Out This Colorful Poster for 'Kumiko, the Treasure Hunter'
Just before Christmas, the first trailer for the Sundance selected indie drama Kumiko, the Treasure Hunter arrived, just in time for the snow to start hitting the Northern part of the United States, which is perfect for the snowy setting of the film. If you haven't watched the trailer yet, the film follows a young woman from Japan, who watches Joel & Ethan Coen's Fargo on VHS, believing it's a documentary. And this inspires her to head to wintry North Dakota to try and find the buried suitcase full of money from the film. Like all good stories of buried treasure, this is about the journey, not the loot. And now we have a bright, colorful illustrated poster, which contrasts the mostly stark, snowy color palette of the film itself. Look now!
Here's the colorful poster for David Zellner's Kumiko, the Treasure Hunter (via The Playlist):
You can watch the first trailer for Kumiko, the Treasure Hunter right here.
Kumiko, the Treasure Hunter is directed by David Zellner (Kid Thing, Goliath), who co-wrote the script with his brother Nathan Zellner (both appear in the film). Kumiko (Kikuchi) lives in a cluttered, cramped apartment in Tokyo with her pet rabbit, Bunzo. She works as an office lady, robotically preparing tea and fetching dry cleaning for her nitpicking boss. But on her own time, she obsessively watches a well-known American film on a weathered VHS tape. Rewinding and fast-forwarding repeatedly, she meticulously maps out where a briefcase of loot is buried. Convinced that her destiny depends on finding the money, Kumiko heads to the US to track it down. Amplify releases the film in theaters next spring on March 13th, 2015.
