Lessons from the success of "It"

"The marketing was smart...they did a good job of using a "less is more" approach" - Jakey

 "This is a rare case of a movie that was perfect to remake: has a strong nostalgic following but which also kind of sucks and has a lot of room for improvement. You get the pre-installed fan base but don't have the pressure of re-creating and improving on a legit classic." - MJS

Curio: Capturing Gravity

Alexa here. Like many, I saw Gravity this weekend in all its IMAX 3D glory. I was astounded by the experience, since it is as close as I'll ever come to a spacewalk.  Yet, like Nathaniel, I was underwhelmed by what remained. As I watched Sandy's floating tears I thought, Finding Nemo was subtler in conveying this, "just keep swimming" and all that. But, wow, space, man!

With that in mind, here's a selection of alternative posters for the film...

Some of these were commissioned by ShortList Magazine and some found elsewhere, and all seek to capture the thrill of this ride.

October 8, 2013 | Registered CommenterNATHANIEL R

I like them all, except for the one with the eye.

October 8, 2013 | Unregistered CommenterMe34

Just about ALL of these put me right back in the frame of mind I had while watching that stunning opening sequence. Pit in my stomach and everything!

October 8, 2013 | Unregistered Commenterdenny

That second one is so gutsy. Love it.

October 8, 2013 | Unregistered CommenterDJDeeJay

These are amazing. I like the Avett and the Muller ones best.

But shouldn't that John Mayer song be here somewhere?.... kidding!

first three are perfect.

October 8, 2013 | Unregistered Commenterpoppy

also the retro one!

October 8, 2013 | Unregistered Commenterpoppy

Love the retro poster - the movie would have been a George Pal production.

October 8, 2013 | Unregistered CommenterJaragon

They're all amazing, but the Tom Muller one is brilliant; good stuff.
