‘Moon’ redrawn: own a future classic

Posted by · 5:53 am · October 3rd, 2010

I know there are a lot of “Moon” fans and collector types among you, so I thought this worth mention. The great British design studio All City, who dreamed up the justly famous poster for Duncan Jones’s sci-fi debut, have launched a new series of limited edition Redrawn poster concepts for some of their most famous titles of recent years — all of them available to purchase.

The striking sketch-based prints are all eminently frameable: this rejigged take on the “Moon” poster appears to be the most popular, but I’m just as keen on what they’ve done with the likes of “Control,” “Let the Right One In” and “Spirited Away.” At around $120 to $240 a pop, they’re not quite bargainous, but should age pretty nicely. Check ’em out here; some of my favorites after the cut.

    Great movies, but I don’t love these posters. Especially the Synecdoche, New York one. What’s the reason for that charicature? Yuck.

    What’s the reason against it?

    But as it happens, the designer answers your very question on the site:

    “The film was a lot funnier than I was expecting, so I liked the idea of making the main character almost a cartoon ‘Mr Magoo’ type figure, but putting him in the surreal, angst-ridden city that Kaufman created.”

    I thought the Man on Wire poster was pretty sweet.

    FYI: The Let Me In and Moon posters where sold earlier this year via Mondo Tees (Moon) and Tyler Stout’s, the artists email list (Let Me In) and were much cheaper… picked up the gold Moon for $54 shipped or something.

    Let the Right One In, you mean.

    Let’s not rob the original film of its identity entirely. ;)
