  1. I’m def. with Jayson on this one, posters shouldn’t just be screenshots of the actors comped together without much concept.

    Awesome poster from a great artist for an awesome movie from great filmmakers.

  2. I totally agree about leaving out the…item in question. It really doesn’t make that much sense for it to be the focal point. I LOVE the way you highlighted the “H” of the Hudsucker logo. Great idea.
    You know what’s crazy? I never really noticed how prominent that boardroom table was in the movie. It’s so iconic! I love that kind of really well thought-out production design in movies. This makes me want to watch it again!

  3. Jayson, Matt: It’s funny you said that because I pondered the idea of putting some character shots in the divisions of the poster. But I agree with you guys, kind of an easy way out. I wanted to keep it simple.

    Joseph, totally agree with you on that boardroom table. It’s beautifully made and looks amazing in that scene. It’s iconic, but in typical Coen form they don’t draw attention to it. Brilliant.

  4. Long live the Hud! Great work, I love it. Hopefully we’ll one day move into an era where the stars’ faces don’t need to be on every single goddamned poster for the movie to make money (well, not that Hudsucker actually made any money at the box office, but still). Stuff like this is always way more enticing to me as a filmgoer, rather than a bunch of floating heads and a meaningless tagline.
