Friday One Sheet: War Time Propaganda (In The Time of Cholera)

And now for something completely different... Apologies if you have been coming to Screen Anarchy to take your mind off the current War on Covid-19 aka global pandemic.  However, it has been a slow few weeks in the movie industry...

Friday One Sheet: TIGERTAIL

This warmly toned design for Alan Yang's Netflix debut, Tigertail features lots of negative space and sets a wonderful mood of the freedom of childhood.  It is very similar BLT's teaser design of Kelly Reichardt's First Cow; both sans credit block...

Friday One Sheet: (Minimalist) MULAN

I personally find the 'live action reboot' strip-mining of Disney's back-catalog to be one of the more culturally abhorrent things in the 21st century. That being said, Ignition Creative's key art campaign for the forthcoming Mulan has been rather delightful. This...

Friday One Sheet: NEVER RARELY SOMETIMES ALWAYS

With a healthy respect for negative space, youthful skin and earth tones, the key art for Sundance winner, Never Rarely Sometimes Always, succeeds in its own minimalism. There is not even any punctuation in the title. Gazing directly at the...

Friday One Sheet: THE FRENCH DISPATCH

The French Dispatch of The Liberty, Kansas Evening Sun, has this piece of delightful Wes Anderson clutter (in title and design) slash dollhouse-diorama as its first piece of key art. What has become the norm for the filmmaker, is to...

Friday One Sheet: THE INVISIBLE MAN

H.G. Wells' speculative horror novel, The Invisible Man, has been adapted for the big screen many, many times. From auteur directors James Whale to John Carpenter to Paul Verhoeven, the story and the style of the various retellings has acted...

Friday One Sheet: A PATIENT MAN

Kevin Ward's dramatic indie thriller, A Patient Man, is getting a direct download release next week, and a VOD bow in February, after a short stint on the festival circuit in 2019. By way of a press release, this lovely...

Friday One Sheet: LINE OF DUTY Races The Clock

This Aaron Eckhart race against the clock thriller, Line of Duty (previously, it had a more interesting title, Live!) may not exactly be getting stellar reviews, and is being unceremoniously dumped into a few theatres and on streaming services this...

Friday One Sheet: LUZ THE FLOWER OF EVIL, A Colombian Tableaux

This gorgeous, if terrifying (perhaps maddening is a better word) look at family and religion in the high altitude wilderness of Colombia has a series of 'character' posters which play more like tableaux or scene setting evocations. They are in...

Friday One Sheet: TO KILL THE DRAGON Festival Quad

Here is an eye grabbing quad design for domestic horror, Matar al Dragón, from Argentina (and director Jimena Monteoliva, whose previous film, Clementina, was no stranger to good key art).  Houses and homes are often a theme in poster design, particular for...

Friday One Sheet: Morbido 2019 Flexes Its Tentacles

This is not the first time in these pages that we have featured key art from Morbido, Mexico City's iconic fantastic and horrific film festival. Over 12 editions, their posters have always been a treat for our ocular cavities. The...

Friday One Sheet: Robert Eggers' Cursed Animal Series Continues With THE LIGHTHOUSE

A24 recently put out a new poster for this loopy, horrific, sad, entertaining, difficult, oddly-aspect ratio'd, actors workshop of a period horror, The Lighthouse. The poster is a direct nod to Robert Eggers' previous period horror picture, The VVitch, which...

Friday One Sheet: BURNING CANE

This handsome piece of key art for American indie picture, the Louisiana set Burning Cane, evokes the posters for a hit from a similar region of the US from a few years ago, Beasts of the Southern Wild. Clearly, it...

Friday One Sheet: MIDWAY, Woody Harrelson is Not Impressed

As floating head ensemble posters go, the latest key art for Roland Emmerich's Midway is the Bloomin' Onion variant. A spreading cluster (which, by the way, is still under half of the films principle cast of World War II military...

Friday One Sheet: THE RHYTHM SECTION

In cinema, all you need is a girl and a gun.  Good old Godard said this of filmmaking, but it applies to the marketing department just fine. Here we have a poster for Blake Lively starring revenge thriller, The Rhythm...

Friday One Sheet: THE REPORT Redacts Truth

Analog newsprint and redaction feature heavily into the key art for The Report. In noisy high-contrast black and white, Adam Driver in a pretty natty suit, is rendered in newsprint text with headlines poking out. "Fabricated Information" is underlined via...

Friday One Sheet: A HIDDEN LIFE

You are always guaranteed a great poster for the films of Terrence Malick. A Hidden Life premiered at Cannes in May, but here is a teaser poster for its Toronto International Film Festival screening. Set in World War II, and...

Friday One Sheet: THE LIGHTHOUSE in Glorious, Stark, Black And White

Robert Eggers' Cannes-feted sophomore film, The Lighthouse, gets a gorgeous poster, which matches the high contrast black and white trailer that also dropped this week. (It is embedded below if you have not had the pleasure yet.) It is rare...

Friday One Sheet: ECHO IN THE CANYON Recalls Jack Davis

By a strange co-incidence, this Jack Davis inspired key art appeared for Andrew Slater's documentary on the Laurel Canyon folk music of the 1960s, Echo in the Canyon, debuted almost exactly the same time that the iconic Mad Magazine issued...

Friday One Sheet: Skinny Teaser for BLACK CHRISTMAS

It is a trick of the eyes that this teaser poster for (another) remake of iconic Slasher picture, Black Christmas, looks longer than your usual 24x36". It is all the BLACK, negative space. While this design is not going to...
