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

Let’s be honest, some of The King’s Speech’s other posters didn’t do the film justice. Examples can be seen here and here. 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.
