Seductive Official Poster for Derek Cianfrance's 'Blue Valentine'

Looks like The Weinstein Company stepped up their game. After releasing the awful poster for The King's Speech, TWC has unveiled a seductive new poster for Derek Cianfrance's Blue Valentine. This is the film that currently has a controversial NC-17 rating, which it doesn't deserve in any way, especially because it's one of the year's best films (read my review). The drama stars Ryan Gosling and Michelle Williams as a couple trying to make their marriage work, but it's obvious they're happy here. This feels like TWC just said "fuck it" and went all-out as spicy as they could, and I like it. Poster is from Yahoo + watch the trailer here.
The story of love found and love lost told using past and present moments in time. Flooded with romantic memories of their courtship, Dean and Cindy spend one last night together to save their failing marriage.
Blue Valentine is written and directed by up-and-coming filmmaker Derek Cianfrance, who studied film at the University of Colorado and has directed numerous shorts and docs. The script was officially co-written by Cianfrance, Joey Curtis and Cami Delavigne. This premiered at the Sundance Film Festival this year and was picked up by The Weinstein Company. Blue Valentine hits limited theaters starting December 31st.
Exciting exciting exciting.

That whole shit with the MMPA really makes me want to see this.

The trailer sucked TBH. Not to mention that watching pathetic couples on screen is worse than seeing them in real life. Michelle Williams' character is just plain annoying. Pass.

Saw this movie last night at our Starz Denver Film Festival and it was fantastic. The performances by Gosling and Williams were so believable, it reminded me a lot of Revolutionary Road. And I hate to say it, but the film needs to keep the NC-17 rating. Some uncomfortabely real and explicit sex scenes throughout. Weinsteins have a lot of work cut out for them.

@5 -- So why exactly does it deserve an NC-17? Only in America...
