Words Over Faces: The New Movie Poster Trend | The King's Speech

But this one really nails it, with Colin Firth’s face immediately catching the eye, and the font perfectly mimicking the red “Keep calm and Carry On” poster that’s made its ubiquitous way onto mugs, shirts and underwear recently. Whether this one makes its way onto a pair of pants remains to be seen. Our guess? Not so much.
