New Bunraku Poster Says Yes To Blue But No To Creativity
A couple of weeks ago we saw the first trailer for the hyper-stylized modern/western-influenced Bunraku, a movie that looks like what you’d get of you put Sin City in a Shake & Bake baggies with a pack of crayons. Even on a pretty slim budget of $25 million, newbie director Guy Moshe managed to nail down some high enough profile actors that might actually get this movie some traction, like Josh Hartnett, Woody Harrelson, and Ron Perlman just to new a few.
A new poster has been released for the film over at Yahoo! Movies and it kind of misses the mark that a film of this style should be trying to hit. It feels very standardized, like it was simply a Photoshop “Movie Poster” template that the marketing team just switched some elements out on and then put it out. With a movie that has this pronounced a visual style, they had a lot of freedom to get away with some bonkers stuff, but instead they released what isn’t a terrible poster, but a really boring one.
Bunraku itself looks really cool (check out the trailer HERE), so don’t let this poster sway you away. Giving interesting movies that do things differently a chance is the best way for us to prevent movies like Battleship from happening, and that should be priority one for film goers. Scope out the weak poster below, but follow the above link for a much better representation of what the film has to offer.
