Check This Out: Teaster Poster for Mike Judge's Extract
The marketing gurus at Miramax are trying very hard to make Mike Judge a comedy icon like he used to be and get his newest film Extract into the spotlight. As we all know, Judge got screwed over by Fox during Idiocracy, and Miramax is trying to clean up that mess. Last week we got to see the teaser trailer and now today, courtesy of HitFix, we have the first teaser poster. It kind of reminds me of a poster for a Judd Apatow film, but they put their own spin on this one. I like where they're going with this, and the tagline at the bottom is great, but I'm wondering if this poster is actually going to attract enough positive attention.
If you haven't seen it yet, please do check out the first teaser trailer for Mike Judge's Extract as well.
Extract follows the personal and professional problems endured by the owner of a flower-extract plant, who's dealing with workplace problems and a streak of bad luck, including his wife's affair with a gigolo.
Extract is both written and directed by Mike Judge, the comedic genius behind "Beavis and Butt-Head", "King of the Hill", Beavis and Butt-Head Do America, Office Space, and Idiocracy most recently. Miramax will be bringing Mike Judge's Extract to select theaters starting on September 4th later this year.
Phallic symbols FTW

I hope the feel is similar to office space, but I hope it's not just an exact replica

I think this is a pretty interesting poster, but you're right....to get a more mass appeal this needs to feature the cast and the Office Space tag line needs to be bigger. I think the Office Space diehards will be on board as soon as they see the trailer, but those who are just casual fans...this poster won't cut it. They'll need to see a funny image with star power. What are they thinking releasing this movie Memorial Day? This movie is going to get swallowed and forgotten if it doesn't get good word of mouth.
