New posters for Leonardo DiCaprio's J. Edgar and Michael Fassbender's Shame are patriotic and messy!

J. EDGAR and SHAME have received rather average and simplistically great posters today, respectively. The Clint Eastwood/Leonardo DiCaprio biopic brings us two one sheets, the first of which is simply the pre-Photoshopped version of the second. What, you guys couldn't decide on one?

Meanwhile, the Steve McQueen/Michael Fassbender drama showcases the real definition of minimalism in poster design (not those played out posters that featured a single squiggly line that were f*cking everywhere last year). The controversial film - which has been getting absolute raves (check out Chris Bumbray's TIFF review wherein he likens it to the emotionally raw work of John Cassavetes) - stars Fassbender as a sex addict, and the simplistic image of a messy bed along with the film's title just perfectly intimates what needs to be known about the story.

J. EDGAR hits theaters on November 9th while SHAME opens December 2nd.

J. Edgar
J. EDGAR explores the public and private life of one of the most powerful, controversial and enigmatic figures of the 20th century. As the face of law enforcement in America for almost fifty years, J. Edgar Hoover (DiCaprio) was feared and admired, reviled and revered. But behind closed doors, he held secrets that would have destroyed his image, his career and his life.





Shame
Brandon is a thirty-something man living in New York who is unable to manage his sex life. After his wayward younger sister moves into his apartment, Brandon‟s world spirals out of control. From director Steve McQueen (HUNGER), Shame is a compelling and timely examination of the nature of need, how we live our lives and the experiences that shape us. Stars Michael Fassbender, Carey Mulligan, James Badge Dale and Nicole Beharie.

The Shame poster looks like it what its future Criterion DVD would've been.

I mean, that was my first impulse too. But I think the image is enough to spark that, so it's probably why they didn't put it in. ....or they didn't wanna show jizz on a movie poster. Now that I think of it, it's probably the latter

I love Fassbender, Shame sounds cool, but I hate Carey Mulligan. I'm ambivalent now.
