A number of debut posters from some films that premiered at the 2013 Sundance Film Festival have surfaced.  Briefly:

  • Breathe In – Writer/director Drake Doremus’ (Like Crazy) devastating family drama stars Guy Pearce, Felicity Jones, and Amy Ryan.  Read my review here, which is actually quoted on this poster.
  • Fruitvale – Writer/director Ryan Coogler’s debut film took the festival by storm, raking up a number of awards.  The heartbreaking real-life drama stars Michael B. Jordan, Octavia Spencer, and Melonie Diaz.  Read Matt’s review here.
  • Two Mothers – Director Anne Fontaine’s drama about two lifelong friends who fall in love with each other’s sons was met with a mixed response.  The film stars Naomi Watts, Robin Wright, and Ben Mendolsohn.  Read my review here, and watch the trailer here.
  • Toy’s House – Director Jordan Vogt-Roberts’ peculiar comedy earned some strong notice at the festival.  The film stars Nick Robinson, Nick Offerman, Alison Brie, and Megan Mullaly.

    I feel sorry for you, Adam. I laughed out loud when I saw that apostrophe in “dramas.” Being quoted in the promotional materials for a movie = cool. Being made to look like a grammatical simpleton in said promotional materials = sad face.

      If you bothered to read my review, you’d realize that the mistake was theirs and not mine.

        Adam, I think that’s actually what he meant, that they’d made the mistake (but the majority of people just looking at the poster will assume it was made in your review, unfortunately).

        I think he did read it. That’s why he said “Being MADE to look like a grammatical simpleton,” instead of “looking like a grammatical simpleton.”

        Ah, my mistake then. Apologies.
