Poster Fix: Django Unchained

The first poster for Quentin Tarantino’s next film, Django Unchained, was revealed yesterday. [via Yahoo!]

Evidently the Weinstein Company’s graphics guy frequents the Minimal Movie Posters tumblr.

This poster also gives us a decent lesson in how to market auteurism. The film’s title and actors are absent from the poster; we’re just expected to know this information. This isn’t “A New Film by Quentin Tarantino”. It is “The New Film By Quentin Tarantino”.

Does the minimalist approach make you more or less excited for this movie? Does the poster even matter because it’s a Quentin Tarantino movie and you will see Django Unchained no matter what?

Sound off below.
