The Argentine Poster

Well yesterday it was Australia and today we have another poster for an historic epic. This time it’s The Argentine, the second part of Steven Soderbergh Che biopic.

The resemblances and differences between the posters for the two films are interesting. All of them sell the films as being filled with beautiful imagery and lots of actions. Two of the posters of Australia and this one for The Argentine put one of the characters in the center. They all fill the rest of the poster with various exciting images.

As for the differences, the posters for Australia seem to indicate a world that is a little bit surreal and maybe almost magical. The poster for The Argentine is trying to go for a much more real seeming and grittier style. But here is the thing: it’s not so much grittier. The poster is still surprisingly glossy, and although the way the images in the poster are overlaid is quite creative it still feels like a good mainstream poster. Honestly I was expecting something the screamed “ART!” and it’s sort of refreshing to be wrong.

The poster is in Spanish, so we don’t know if the will get similar posters in the US. I look forward to finding out what the domestic campaign will be like, and now I’m wondering how broad an audience they intend to reach with the film.

    I’ve said that least 2866419 times. The problem this like that is they are just too compilcated for the average bird, if you know what I mean

    Zune and iPod: Most people compare the Zune to the Touch, but after seeing how slim and surprisingly small and light it is, I consider it to be a rather unique hybrid that combines qualities of both the Touch and the Nano. It’s very colorful and lovely OLED screen is slightly smaller than the touch screen, but the player itself feels quite a bit smaller and lighter. It weighs about 2/3 as much, and is noticeably smaller in width and height, while being just a hair thicker.

    Hands down, Apple’s app store wins by a mile. It’s a huge selection of all sorts of apps vs a rather sad selection of a handful for Zune. Microsoft has plans, especially in the realm of games, but I’m not sure I’d want to bet on the future if this aspect is important to you. The iPod is a much better choice in that case.

    There are actually loads of details like that to take into consideration. That could be a nice point to bring up. I supply the thoughts above as basic inspiration but clearly there are questions like the one you convey up the place an important thing might be working in sincere good faith. I don?t know if finest practices have emerged round things like that, however I am sure that your job is clearly identified as a good game. Both girls and boys feel the influence of just a second’s pleasure, for the rest of their lives.
