Sleek New Poster for Jennifer Phang's Indie Sci-Fi Film 'Advantageous'
Everyone once in a while I'll come across some marketing material that really impresses me. Even if the film doesn't look good, or the rest of the material is off, there may be one shining example of excellence and it's worth pointing out. This is an example of an excellent poster. SlashFilm has debuted the new poster for Advantageous, an indie sci-fi drama from first-time filmmaker Jennifer Phang. The film unfortunately got terrible buzz at Sundance (I actually skipped it despite having a ticket thanks to warnings from multiple friends) but this poster has made me interested once again. I still may check it out. I like the design, the cityscape and background, it's sleek and eye-catching which is good for indie films that need extra attention.
The original description of Advantageous from Sundance: In a near-future city where soaring opulence overshadows economic hardship, Gwen and her daughter, Jules, do all they can to hold on to their joy, despite the instability surfacing in their world. The film features a procedure that allows people to transfer their consciousness into a new body. The cast includes Jacqueline Kim, James Urbaniak, Freya Adams, Ken Jeong, Jennifer Ehle, Samantha Kim. It first premiered at the Sundance Film Festival in January, where the film won the Special Jury Prize "for Collaborative Vision" award. Jennifer Phang's Advantageous will be released in theaters on June 26th, and on Netflix starting June 23rd. For more visit Advantageous.me.
