This Week in Movie Posters: Lost Basterds and Crazy Kids

It’s Friday, and that means that it is time to take a look at This Week in Movie Posters. It seems fitting this week that I was just reading a story about Quentin Tarantino saving the New Beverly theater in Los Angeles, one of the great little film geek spots in the world, as I’m also leading with some art for his latest film. Chances are that you’ve seen the Lost Art of Inglourious Basterds already, as it’s been all over the web. But if you haven’t you’re in for a treat. I found it via our friends a /Film, who have published a full gallery of posters from an art auction celebrating Tarantino’s Best Picture nominee. It is where we begin this week’s poster journey.

The Lost Art of Inglourious Basterds

Clicking on the image above will take you to a full gallery of Basterds art over at /Film. From various artists come a diverse set of poster interpretations, some very simple and some very intense. The one above is one of my favorite, of the intense variety. The whole set is part of an art show in Los Angeles at the Upper Playground Art Gallery, with proceeds going to help the victims of the Haiti earthquake. A worthy cause, some badass art. Nothing better, in my book.

The Crazies – Insanity is Spreading

For those keeping count, this will probably be the fourth week in the last six that we’ve mentioned The Crazies in this column. The marketing for this film has been sensational. Kudos to Overture Films for releasing posters that keep us interested in what’s happening down in Ogden Marsh. This poster is from the folks at Paramount, who are handling the international release. Very creepy, desolate streets and a little girl. Little kids will always help increase the creepy factor.
