Poster Break: 12 Years a Slave


I'm heavily anticipating this film, but this poster is kind of terrible.  I get this 'Interview with a Vampire' vibe from it, and the Victorian accents are unfortunate.  Ejiofor is burning holes through this poster.  The only thing missing is for his fangs to peek through that emotionless expression.  What is it with these posters misrepresenting the films?  Like, why does it look like Ejiofor is a Victorian aristocrat and not a slave?  I'm still anticipating this like crazy, but this is awful.

  2. Yeah, the poster isn't right at all. The film should be much better than the advertising, though.

  3. "Like, why does it look like Ejiofor is a Victorian aristocrat and not a slave? " Ejiofor plays a Free Man who is sold into slavery.

    1. You're right! I forgot that. Still, this is ugly.
