Here's an Exclusive Look at the newest Saul Bassian poster for Ryan Reynolds' BURIED!!!

Published at: Aug. 19, 2010, 6:29 p.m. CST by quint

Ahoy, squirts! Quint here. I've loved this run of theatrical posters for Buried, a flick I had a lot of fun with at Sundance. I guess the fact that the whole movie takes place in a box with Ryan Reynolds (unless the rumors I've heard about some reshoots are true... Mini-Update: Lionsgate denies any reshoots took place) has forced the ad wizards to be creative. The last poster was a fantastic homage to Saul Bass and they're keeping up the trend with their quote poster, which we're debuting below. Click on the pic for the high-res version. Enjoy!

Thanks to the folks at Lionsgate for the sneak! -Quint quint@aintitcool.com Follow Me On Twitter

    by andrew coleman

    Hey asshole I'm a nerd and I loved that movie. So hey studio thanks for making a movie that my true nerd really loved. Werewolf take your negative bull shit somewhere else. Also Buried looks great.

  • Aug. 19, 2010, 4:59 p.m. CST

    agreed about Scott Pilgrim

    by Saracen1

    I'm a nerd, I loved it. And all my friends, who are also nerds, loved it. In fact I've yet to meet someone who didn't love the movie. Still quite buzzled by how poorly it has performed. Hopefully word of mouth will prop it up.

    Why this and the 'Saul Bass' one don't work

    by kevred

    The 'Saul Bass' one doesn't work because it doesn't create any feeling of claustrophobia. It actually seems to create a sort of wide-open space, like a long open stairwell. Vertigo, disorientation, yes, but not confinement.<p>This one doesn't work because it's also not quite confining enough, and it also looks like he's standing up. Imagine being buried both ways, laying down & standing. One's worse than the other. I think for this one, the words creating weight on the laying-down figure - especially with a close-up of his panicked face - would be stronger.<p>All that aside, kudos to the marketers for trying something different, even if it's sort of out of necessity. The best ideas often come that way.

    Remember that guy that cut off his own arm

    by HapaPapa72

    To free himself from being trapped in a canyon? Do you think if RedBullHuman were trapped in a box with a gay guy he would try and bite thru his own wrists to try and kill himself? Can't wait to see this. Buried, that is.

    Also thats some elite company AICN

    by torontoxic

    The Portland Oragonian is Americas Cahier Du Cinema. <P> Its right under USA Today's astute one liner "crazy-good thriller". Apparently USA today has 13 year olds write their reviews. <P> So is this movie any good or is Lions Gate just buttering the C team reviewers for quotes and hoping nobody actually reads through them?

    Not Reynolds for Kirk.

    by TommyGavinsEgo

    I dig the guy a lot, and I can see him sorta working as Kirk - but as far as I'm concerned Pine knocked that fucker out the part. Avoided imitation but there a lot of very very subtle nuanced Shatnerisms in there that seem to get overlooked.

    by Mr. Profit

    Whenever I go to The Gap, they never have size 34. They always have a lot of 36, and 31, but never my size 34. My point though is I never see any size above 36 at the store. So I doubt they sell fat guy pants with an elastic waistband there. Maybe at Target though, but not The Gap and DEF not Banana Republic.

    I think Scott Pilgrim suffered the same fate as Speed Racer. 95% of the people that saw it think it's great; but 95% of the public avoided seeing it in the first place, thinking it would be terrible. Most of the people talking about how terrible Scott Pilgrim haven't seen it, which is the same ridiculous thing we see happening with SR.
