Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy premiered at the Venice Film Festival on Monday to the rave reviews everyone was hoping for. The English language debut and follow up to the brilliant Let the Right One In from director Thomas Alfredson makes this probably my second most anticipated film of 2011 (after Drive). Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy is only being released in the US in December, and heaven knows when in SA. However, the UK release date is only a week or so away, and in anticipation thereof, the marketing machine has kicked into gear.
Hit the jump for these minimalist posters designed by Paul Smith and presented by Empire as part of the film's marketing campaign. They will go on sale at Paul Smith stores in the UK on 13 September. Unlucky us.
I must admit, I am not that crazy about these posters, and I think the minimalist idea has been taken a little too far for my taste. However, they will look great in a sparsely decorated and modern setting.
