From a poster reminiscent of the 60s comes a new poster for Bridge of Spies. This one is another take on the big face hovering over a scene from the film.
All we know is that TOM HANKS is in it! We could tell that by whose face is plastered all over it.
Apart from telling us who is in it and the film involves a bridge, and possibly spies, the poster doesn’t do anything more. It could have worked without a godlike Tom Hanks’ face in the frame!
It is the same trope as used in the earlier 60s style poster. It’s the thing that isn’t needed. Please Hollywood come up with something new. Drop the “We have to have the star’s face on the poster“, and show us something interesting
Directed by Steven Spielberg, BRIDGE OF SPIES is a dramatic thriller which tells the story of James Donovan, a Brooklyn insurance claims lawyer who finds himself thrust into the center of the Cold War when the CIA sends him on the near-impossible task to negotiate the release of a captured American U-2 pilot.
