Eye Spy With "The Favourite"

Chris here. Oh was white text on a black background not enough to prep us for a Lanthimos costume drama? The NYFF-bound The Favourite inches closer to release and we've now been given a genius poster that takes "closer" to a whole new level of Lanthimosian wrongness. Reader, what are Emma Stone and Rachel Weisz doing to Olivia Colman's face?? We love some Lanthimos body horror humor, but do we need to brace for The Favourite to punish us with... eye stuff? Eek! Or maybe there's some more hidden hints at what the movie has in store for us?

It really reminds me of one play from Jean Genet: The maids. Really excited to see it!

I totally want to see this.

Can't wait to see this one too. Reminds me of that movie with Salma Hayek eating a heart.

I give the distribution company or whoever designed that poster big brownie points. I wanted to see this before, now I'm really intrigued. Great poster.

My excitement level for this just keeps on rising. This poster reminds me of Gullver's Travels.

Nathaniel, any word on category placement for the three leads?

All in for anything with Olivia Colman. This poster is awesome.
