I had the pleasure today of visiting a pre screening of TRUMBO today.
The film premiered in October last year in the US and in February this year in the UK.
The film is about Dalton Trumbo, a famous screenwriter in Hollywood who got into reel trouble for being a communist during the 1940.
I dont want to give you more info on the film because that might ruin the screening for you. But if you like me love film making a little bit more then others, then this is the film for you.
But this blog post is not about the film itself. It is about the marketing campaign that A+P put together for US distribution company Bleecker Street Media. Because when I first saw the marketing campaign and its two different movie posters I could only think of one man. Ian Fleming! For you who, just like me have enjoyed pictures of Ian Fleming for many years must feel the same? I see it as a nice homage.
A+P just must have looked at pictures of Ian Fleming when they decided what route to take with the ad capaign.
Look below and be the judge yourself.
Note that the white tux poster for SPECTRE came out in Sep 2015 and the white tux poster for TRUMBO came out in October. Coincidence? If you had looked at Ian Fleming and copied his style you could do it once again with James Bond as well...
