Our friend Rian Johnson has finally posted a good version of the gorgeous hand-drawn poster for The Brothers Bloom. I first saw this when I caught the film at the New Beverly in Los Angeles (for my third time, mind you) and Rian had put it up in the poster boxes outside of the cinema. Unfortunately it's not an official poster, but it damn well should be! I'm quite interested to see what Summit ended up choosing if this isn't the official poster, because this is truly beautiful. It was drawn by Rian's cousin Zach (visit his site here) and can be downloaded on the official website if you're interested in printing this out yourself.
If you haven't seen the trailer yet, I suggest you check it out right now - it even has my own quote in it!
For more info on this film, head over to the awesome official website: brothersbloom.com
The Brothers Bloom (Brody / Ruffalo) are the best con men in the world, swindling millionaires with complex scenarios of lust and intrigue. Now they've decided to take on one last job - showing a beautiful and eccentric heiress the time of her life with a romantic adventure that takes them around the world.
The Brothers Bloom is both written and directed by young filmmaker Rian Johnson, of the 2006 indie gem Brick. This first premiered at the Toronto Film Festival last year, where I gave it an 8 out of 10 in my review. Summit Entertainment will finally debut The Brothers Bloom in limited theaters starting on May 15th.
Really really badass and stylish.

That's styling! My only thing with it is that it seems a bit heavy on the shading, but that might be because it's reduced in size. Either way, I'd like to have one! I wish there was more posters like this. Can't wait to see the film too.

Peloquin -- Hi, I'm the guy who drew the poster. We decided that instead of selling them we'd make the poster available for free download if fans want them, at least for a limited amount of time. It's a huge file, and can then be printed at 2'x3' at Kinkos if anybody is so inclined. Just go to http://www.brothersbloom.com/meetthebrothers/ Click on "Watch" and then scroll down to find the files. Glad you like the poster!

Excellent, thanks. I'll be sure to follow your work in the future too. That's really great that you're giving it away for free like that, don't see that much in this day and age.

It will be forever immortalized on my theater wall next to my signed No Country for Old Men, and my Alamo Drafthouse Robocop and Bladerunner works of art.

That poster looks really awesome! Their art is perfect for banner designs.
