New U.S. poster for THE LAST CIRCUS
¡Ay dios mio!
It seems Magnet/Magnolia Pictures have decided to redo the poster for their upcoming release of Álex de la Iglesia's phenomenal film THE LAST CIRCUS (read my review here). Why they decided to change up the artwork is beyond me. Instead of sticking with something darker like the original, and a more little elegant I guess they wanted to mimic the film’s insane tone by making an all-over-the-place image. In that they somewhat succeeded.
The whole thing looks hastily done and reeks of some less than stellar Photoshop work. When you have such a gorgeous woman in your movie like Carolina Bang, why would you want her on the poster in the most unattractive way possible? There is nothing special about this poster and, frankly, it’s kind of a turn off. But don’t let it deter you. This is an amazing film. Go and see it, if at all possible, when it gets released on August 19th and check out their website for more info.
Have a look after the break at the original poster and the red band trailer, both of which are better than this one-shit…er, sheet.
