You Can Get With This, Or You Can Get With That

I love movie posters. Much like trailer editing, there's a subtle art to it that is rarely mastered, but when they get it right, it can be a beautiful thing. So today, I figured we'd do a little study in contrasts.

First, the poster for Hanna, the deadly-little-girl film starring Saoirse Ronan, Eric Bana and Cate Blanchett. It had a badass trailer debut recently, and this poster is pretty phenomenal in its intensity. The film is going to ride on Ronan's back, and from all accounts, she's up to the task.

Sick.

OK, next we have the trailer for Duncan Jones' (Moon) new flick, The Source Code. Also looks like a pretty interesting film, with another outstanding cast -- Jake Gyllenhaal, Vera Farmiga, Michelle Monighan and Jeffrey Wright. The trailer looks great, but the poster, well, see for yourself:

Yowza, that is wretched. But never let it be said that Duncan Jones is without a sense of humor. Quickly after the poster debuted on Yahoo, Jones reached out via his Twitter page, saying, "For those asking... No... Source Code does not take place in an exploding Kinkos. lol." He then added, "Poster works better if you look at it while pressing this button. ;)"

Lol aside, I now love Duncan Jones.
