Commercial art

A couple of strong film posters I happened across recently.

The Casino Royale one I love because it so perfectly sums up the character of Bond in a single image; I doubt the film will do half so well.

Meanwhile I know nothing about M.Night Shyamalan’s Lady in the Water – and knowing his films it’s probably best I keep it that way – but this is a striking image. The girl’s face is halfway between Elijah Wood as Frodo and one of the puppets from Dark Crystal, but the poster has a fairytale quality: crisp yet dreamlike, simple yet tangled. Very effective.
