Another Beautiful Artistic Poster for Lee Daniels' Precious
Now this is an exceptional marketing campaign. And that might be because it has people like Oprah and Tyler Perry backing it. Out friends at HitFix have debuted the second poster for Lee Daniels' Sundance (and Cannes) sensation Precious. Back in May we debuted the first great poster followed by the tremendous trailer for the film. And now we have this beautiful poster to hold us over until it hits theaters in November. Jeffrey Wells describes the poster best: "stylish and striking -- a visual hint that Precious isn't up to the usual-usual. It tells you it's a film that comes to grips and flexes artistic muscle." Check this out full below.
If you haven't seen the trailer yet, I strongly urge everyone to watch it right now. It is an incredible film.
Precious: Based on the Novel Push by Sapphire is directed by Lee Daniels, of only the film Shadowboxer previously. The screenplay was adapted by first-time writer Damien Paul and is based on the novel titled Push written by Sapphire. The film premiered at the Sundance Film Festival earlier this year, where it won both the Grand Jury Prize and Audience Award and was one of the most highly praised films of the entire festival. Lionsgate will be releasing Precious in limited theaters starting on November 6th later this year.

Pretty mental for an American film poster, no pic of Mariah Carey, sell, sell, sell. Really like it.

The movie looks trite, but the poster is neat.

I've been looking forward to this movie ever since the first trailer came out many moons ago and can't wait to see it. HOWEVER, I'm already getting sick of the way they are almost daring movie goers, Academy Awards, Golden Globe people etc. etc. not to nominate it for best picture. Shades of The English Patient and Shakespeare in Love campaigns and if they are going to ram Precious down our throats as if we don't have the sense to decide whether it's as great as they claim, then the ordinary movie goer will reject it regardless of how good it is. The producer of Precious need to remember what happened to Brokeback Mountain the last time a studio was so condescending to its audience.
