Forget The Hobbit, Anna Karenina, Pacific Rim and all those other tiny indie flicks. The best movie poster this week was an easy one to pick.
Well, I say that. It was actually very close. On the one hand, there's the gorgeous Sam Gilbey hand-drawn poster for the lovely Electrick Children, which is out in UK cinemas on Friday. On the other hand, there's the poster I drew myself at the Den of Geek film quiz last week (with the not-quite-as-talented-but-medically-defined-as-special Seph Bradfield and Alex Clements).
The movie poster in question? 50 Shades of Grey.
porn low-brow literary sensation that has swept the (incredibly filthy-minded) nation by E. L. James is now being made into a movie. You will have seen the reports about it. The fact that it's being produced by The Social Network's team of Michael De Luca and Dana Brunetti. The description of it by Universal as "a complex love story, requiring a delicate and sophisticated hand". Channing Tatum saying that he wants to star in it with his wife.
But none of that compared to the news that we have an exclusive 50 Shades of Grey film poster right here. Before you ask, no, I haven't read the books. And to answer your other question: of COURSE it features Liam Neeson. And a very disturbing tagline.
Sorry Sam Gilbey, but your gorgeous, sexy, amazing Electrick Children poster just can't compete with Liam Neeson punching a naked wolf. Read on to see the runner-up in full.
