Overture Films has premiered the movie poster for Michael Moore‘s next film, Capitalism: A Love Story, on Fandango. Also, Overture has annoucned that the film will have a special limited engagement in New York and Los Angeles. Details after the jump.
The poster is very much in the styles of the 1960′s, especially the font and coloring, which is somewhat reminiscent of Saul Bass’ poster design work. However, the character design is a bit too realistic and overly detailed to warrant that comparison. Head on over to Fandango to see the full poster. If you haven’t yet seen the trailer, check that out as well.
As you know, the film will premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival in mid-September. Overture has also revealed that the film will have one week special limited engagement in New York (Lincoln Plaza, Angelika) and Los Angeles (Arclight Hollywood, The Landmark) on September 23rd, before the film hits theaters nationwide on October 2nd 2009.
“It’s got it all — lust, passion, romance, and 14,000 jobs being eliminated every day.” – Michael Moore
CAPITALISM: A LOVE STORY tackles an issue Michael Moore has been examining throughout his career: the disastrous impact of corporate dominance on the everyday lives of Americans (and by default, the rest of the world). But this time the culprit is much bigger than General Motors, and the crime scene far wider than Flint, Michigan. From Middle America, to the halls of power in Washington, to the global financial epicenter in Manhattan, Michael Moore will once again take filmgoers into uncharted territory.
Capitalism: A Love Story hits theaters on October 2nd 2009.
