Slow Rollout

Dan McCarthy‘s abstract, sepia-toned one-sheet for Paddy Considine‘s Tyrannosaur (Strand Releasing, November) tells you it’s some kind of austere art film. It’s obviously striking but it conveys nothing of the tone of compassion and forgiveness that slips into the narrative during Act 2 and especially Act 3. The suggestion is mainly that someone or something ferocious will bite someone’s head off. And that’s only about a quarter…okay, a third of the whole pie.

Meanwhile Strand continues to not post a YouTube trailer, despite assurances passed along to this columnist on 6.15 (or about five weeks ago) that a trailer was “being finalized.” The film opens in the UK and Ireland in mid-October. Ten or eleven weeks from the UK opening and there’s no trailer? Who opens a film this way?

  1. Wish this hadn’t gone to Strand. It really doesn’t have a fighting chance. Their biggest hit made $871,759 (Edge of Seventeen over a decade ago). This movie, sadly, is going to come and go very quickly.

  2. It’s a nice looking poster, but is there something we’re supposed to see in the trees? There must be some reason why the same tree is used three times (apart from extremely lazy photo-shopping), right?

  3. Art for this is elegant, but as noted, strangely photoshopped and I suspect, very very confusing for the average moviegoer and I mean the average art film moviegoer.

    I disagree with the pronouncement about going with Strand. They’re a terrific company and they generally do a great job for their films.

  4. Appreciate your this. Funnily enough both the which were unfamiliar in my experience were the simple commands mtr and ssh-copy-id. Shows the best way to be informed about a great deal of “clever stuff” but have no clue that these great, forehead-slappingly obvious tools even exist.

    I just were required to go imply to them away and off to another person in the office!

  5. This is an awsome idea! Im glad theres still people that care about the world. Anyways I would start with finding the space make it somewhere out in the open so a lot of people see it! Then make flyers posters ect. Make some sort of enterence fee or donation such as your ideas. Then show people around let them get comfortable with you and the animals. Frome that point on youll be known as a hero! Good luck and have fun! bandyou forfait sans engagement forfait illimite forfait sms illimite forfait internet forfait bloque rio bouygues rio orange rio sfr rio bouygues rio virgin forfait bloque calcul imc
