First Burn After Reading Poster
A very nice one-sheet for Coens' next

If you're designing a poster, you can't go far wrong by taking some inspiration from Saul Bass, undisputed Big Chief Superman of the poster world. So, we very much like the first poster for Joel and Ethan Coen's Burn After Reading, which debuted over at Cinematical. It's a delightful little combination of the typeface of Vertigo and the colour scheme of The Apartment. Click the image below to be instantly transported, via the medium of web, to their bigger version.

Burn After Reading is a comedy about two gym employees (Brad Pitt and Frances McDormand) who find a suitcase containing the memoirs of an ex-CIA agent (John Malkovich). Their attempts to blackmail him go somewhat awry. George Clooney, Tilda Swinton and JK Simmons also star.

Oh Reading... like a book
So this is definetly not about flaming tents and used camping goods after the Reading festival, shame that really. Maybe I can talk them into a sequel... Or maybe someone with a ticket ad a camera will read this and make a spoof of it. I JOSHUA MOORE want a creative credit tho!!! More
