Posters I Love

Along with a new trailer, James Gray's fall release "We Own The Night" also gets a fresh poster. It's not the fairly average placement of Phoenix and Whalburg within the poster that creates its aura, but the black and white facade of the image. It fits Gray's sense of classicism perfectly. As pointed out in an earlier post, I'm a huge fan of Gray. He makes crime films that feel out of place in today's modern market. They're slower, more disciplined, and certainly more textured than other crime films. I'm hoping "We Own the Night" follows suit. Still, it's one helluva poster.
