The Glass Castle
The big headliner is the film adaptation of Jeannette Walls’ best-selling memoir The Glass Castle starring Oscar-winner Brie Larson. The poster is a bit of a mess. Maybe that’s what they were going for, I don’t know. The banner version of the poster is much better, but this is the primary one I’ve seen circulated unfortunately. All in all, dead average.
The Nut Job 2: Nutty by Nature
I’ll say this: the poster is just as bad as I imagine the movie is. So it has that going for it.
The poster does a good job of capturing the tone of the film, I’m sure. But it also shows little creativity.
Ingrid Goes West
This poster is also a bit of a mess, but in the good way. I can’t explain it, but it works here. Maybe it’s Aubrey Plaza’s diabolically coy half-smirk, but it works. Best poster of the week.
