Red-Eye: the Posters

The movie, Red-Eye opens today -- and I wanted to mention that it has some of the best posters I've ever seen for a film.

Hmmm, my text feels like blog Twister. Anyway these posters are terrific because all you need is the title and the image to figure out what the movie is about.

Moreover, the images themselves are already suspenseful. You don't even need to go to the theater to be entertained. Anyway, given some of the reviews I've been seeing and the simplicity of these ads I'm thinking this will be a breakout hit.

P.S. One possible improvement to the posters: lose the tagline, "Fear Takes Flight" -- the image and title does everything you need.
