When it comes to promoting a new film after the trailer to me the poster is the most important thing, but to some it can be the poster itself as it’s the key item that will catch people’s attention. Alot people wont see the trailers until they go to cinema then spread the word by mouth so its important posters are designed in a way to make sure it grabs your curiousity, it was only last week I found out Apollo18 was now been released the weekend just past! Next week espionage thriller Tinker Tailor Soldier spy will arrive in British & Irish cinemas nationwide, the movie made its world premier at Venice Film Festival last night with the reviews been astonishing and we’re over the moon that tomorrow we’ll catch a preview screening (review to follow). Everything for this movie has just been fantastic, the promotion has just been right not overpowering with not stop bombardment of marketing, just a nice pace and Optimum Releasing have just notched up this movies marketing train with style!
Design guru Paul Smith has came onboard and created 4 awesome limited edition prints which will be available from September 13th. These prints you wont find on bus shelters or billboards they will be on sale at a £100 a piece with profits going to Maggie’s Cancer Caring Centres, if you can afford a spare £100 it is a worthwhile cause plus there some of the coolest posters you’ll get your hands on as well!
Here’s what the good folks at Studio Canal had to say ”Sir Paul Smith is delighted to have collaborated with the director in the early development stages of the film working in a creative capacity, offering thoughts and insights on 1970s London; mood, colour and photographic approach.”
Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy will be out September 16th starring Gary Oldman, Kathy Burke, Benedict Cumberbatch, Colin Firth, Tom Hardy, Ciarán Hinds, John Hurt, Toby Jones, Konstantin Khabensky, Svetlana Khodchenkova, Roger Lloyd Pack, and Mark Strong.
