Foxcatcher - Poster breakdown


Hot off the heels of the three Golden Globe nominations for the film, Entertainment One UK Ltd is pleased to release the new poster for Foxcatcher above that holds that information in regards to the Best Actor and Best Supporting Actor nominations for Steve Carell and Mark Ruffalo respectively.

The film is written and directed by Bennett Miller (Capote, Moneyball) and promises to be one of the best dramatic thrillers of recent years with an array of varied acting talent on display.

In contrast to the original quad poster, the new poster uses the same three poses of the three leading actors with Carell (the lead nomination) on the right of the poster on his own.  In contrast to the original where Carell's character John Du Pont is firmly entrenched between the two Schultz brothers.  The decision of the placement of the new poster places Du Pont on the right from the Schultz brothers indicating his difference to them and non-relation to the family bond he comes between. And the addition of more colour reminiscent of the Foxcatcher uniforms is better than the drab, greyer original quad where the mood is obviously of more deliberate tone.  The new poster makes you think this film is worth seeing for the acting alone and there might be some colour.

Foxcatcher is released in the UK on January 9th. Watch the trailer below:
