Check This Out: Official US Poster for Robert Duvall's Get Low
Sony Pictures Classics recently unveiled this rather gorgeous final poster for Aaron Schneider's Get Low, a fantastic indie dramedy set in the 1930s starring Robert Duvall as a wacky old hermit who throws his own funeral. Bill Murray, also seen on the poster, plays a funeral director who helps set up his funeral "party." It's actually a great film that I saw the Toronto Film Festival last year, and even Brandon loved it giving it 8 out of 10 at Sundance. You can watch the official trailer right here which I suggest doing because you will hopefully want to see it after watching that. And with that said, check out the official Get Low poster below.
A movie spun out of equal parts folk tale, fable and real-life legend about the mysterious, 1930s Tennessee hermit (Robert Duvall) who famously threw his own rollicking "funeral" party… while he was still alive.
Get Low is directed by up-and-coming filmmaker Aaron Schneider, who directed the short Two Soldiers and was a cinematographer previously. The screenplay was co-written by Chris Provenzano ("Mad Men") and C. Gaby Mitchell (Blood Diamond) and is based on the real-life story of Felix Bush. It premiered at the Toronto Film Fest last year. Sony Pictures Classics is bringing Get Low to theaters starting July 30th this summer.
I remember seeing the trailer for this. It was interesting but not compelling. We shall see how it turns out... Again, I hope all the star power doesn't take away from the experience.

I agree with Eli. I'm very intrigued, but the trailer didn't do much for me. I still want to see it, though, especially because of Bill Murray - and Robert Duvall is always good.

I liked the trailer but had forgot about the film, will definitely look out for this.

I'm interested, but I mostly want to see this because I love Bill Murray so damn much.

Their legs are pretty obviously photoshopped, but otherwise cool poster.
