Check These Out: Stylish Character Posters for 'Morning Glory'
I'm a big poster aficionado so if I see something that catches my eye, I usually try and point it out. I wasn't initially planning on featuring these posters for the Bad Robot produced cute comedy Morning Glory, but after taking a closer look, I decided to anyway. I like the design, it's bold and unique and eye-catching. How often do you see giant, brightly colored text covering the face of a very famous movie star? Hollywood.com debuted these three character posters, one for each of the main stars: Harrison Ford, Diane Keaton and Rachel McAdams. If you haven't seen the trailer for this news anchor comedy, you can still watch it here.
A hotshot television producer (Rachel McAdams) is given the challenge of reviving a struggling morning show program, despite the constant feuding of its high-profile anchors (Harrison Ford and Diane Keaton).
Morning Glory is directed by South Africa-born filmmaker Roger Michell, of Notting Hill, Changing Lanes, The Mother, Enduring Love and Venus previously. The screenplay was written by Aline Brosh McKenna who previously wrote Laws of Attraction, The Devil Wears Prada and 27 Dresses. Produced by J.J. Abrams and Bryan Burk at Bad Robot. Paramount is bringing Morning Glory to theaters on November 12th in the fall.

If you're going to do this, don't use a serif font.

Looks... bad... and looks like adverts for Cornflakes or something... not a movie...

What font would you prefer j? Anything bolder would cover the actors too much.

Three undesirable mug shots. Two old worn-out mugs and the third mug blocking the view of the most attractive face in the movies.

Good posters? Really? Looks like MSPaint over a simple picture to me. *shrug*

Bad type choice. Should have picked a display serif. The leading and pont size isn't even consistent on the three posters.

I could make a better poster than that (and I suck at using photoshop). The colour is too hard to read.

As a retailer of movie posters, might I just say....Ugh. These blow. Would YOU want these up on your wall? So completely unimaginative. What a waste of marketing dollars.

Stylish my ass. As a designer, those are TERRIBLE posters. I could list a dozen problems but I think it is obvious they suck.

Produced by Brian Burke? I know the Leafs are 2-0 but lets not forget about the real job at hand.

Awful type on these posters. If I had any desire to see this film, it would have subsided becasue of this typeface. It looks really bad; meaning poster and film.
