    Let the Toronto presales begin

  2. Edward Wilson says:

    Is that supposed to be a 40 oz. or something? Cause it looks like a liter of Diet Coke…

  3. David Poland says:

    That would be 2 liters of soda, EW.

  4. krazyeyes says:

    The blurring on the Diet Coke label is very distracting plus i’m not sure I get making the poster look like a book cover.

  5. Edward Wilson says:

    I don’t drink soda. I wouldn’t know these things.

  6. anghus says:

    why is one 2 liter soda bottle (the one in her hand) the old rounded style and the one on the night stand the newer old-school coke bottle shaped plastic bottle.

    this is weird.

    The book cover is a little too cutesy but I do like the image. All the caffine containers surrounding a bottle of Grey Goose give the impression that she crossed that age where severe hangovers are still bearable yet she is not yet giving up the lifestyle.

  8. Paul MD (Stella's Boy) says:

    Jennifer’s Body > Juno. Here’s hoping Young Adult > Jennifer’s Body.

  9. Don R. Lewis says:

    The book cover is because the main character is either a person who gained popularity for writing teen fiction for girls or was a popular teen fiction writer as a teen, I can’t remember which it was.

  10. palmtree says:

    The term “young adult” is a lit genre, and so the parody book cover is a brilliant marketing design.

“It’s a film festival’s job—and increasingly so—to create moments of recognition, of enjoyment, of shock, of learning. Not of consumerism. Not of implementing cultural policy. But moments without pretence, unclouded by vested interests, by intervention, by cynicism, by everyday business. Committed to nothing but the thing itself. Under obligation to nothing, to no one, not even to the filmmakers themselves. To basically seek access to a form that does not yet exist, a place no one has been to, a time that has not yet come. ’A form that thinks, and a thought that forms,’ as Jean-Luc Godard has it.”
~ Hans Hurch, late director of the Viennale

“There’s a mass belief that if you’re texting, you’re somehow not interrupting the conversation—you’re not being rude. It’s an illusion of multitasking. I started filmmaking when people didn’t expect to have a phone on set, when it would’ve been seen as unprofessional to pull out a phone. Phones have become a huge distraction, and people work much better without them. At first it causes difficulty, but it really allows them to concentrate on what they’re doing. Everybody understands. I’ve had a lot of crews thank me. With a set, we’re trying to create a bubble of alternate reality.”
~ Christopher Nolan
