Since it’s premiere at the 2008 Sundance Film Festival, movie critics have been comparing this year’s best film (so far) American Teen to John Hughes’ 80′s teen classic The Breakfast Club. Paramount Vantage has decided to run with this idea, and curb the marketing for the film (or at least the poster) around the idea of a modern day real life Breakfast Club. I’ve been more apt to compare it to Fast Times at Ridgemont High, but the Breakfast Club comparison works just as well because of the social class system of the characters followed.
My good friend Neil at Film School Rejects was able to get his hands on the poster art for the July 25th release. Click on the image below to enlarge.
