Did you see how simple the posters for Martha Marcy May Marlene have been so far? Even the ones that relied on the internet code to send out a message (risky move too!) were so haunting and beautiful in a way. The efficiency of the concept is that it gets across several points: Elizabeth Olsen, all the Ms and Elizabeth Olsen again.
My Week with Marilyn debuted its first official poster and the result is so lifeless. Michelle Williams might deliver a stunning performance but in all the publicity shots and now this one sheet, she looks like a morbid morgue project. We get she's playing Marilyn but she has been looking like some sort of postmortem strange postmodernist experiment (let's see if you can play Marilyn as a mannequin!). It's strange that the marketing people at the Weinstein Co. even went with this image at all when just a few weeks ago we got one where at least Williams seemed to be alive.
How do you feel about all the Ms this week?
