The Railway Man (unused designs)

Unused artwork for the Australian theatrical release of The Railway Man

This was quite an interesting challenge - the local distributor wanted me to try something that worked as a mainstream sell for their biggest film of the year, and also as a teaser campaign that worked as an adjunct to existing UK artwork. Slightly confusing but a good opportunity to try something a bit more mainstream. I'll leave it up to you to decide whether any of them succeed.
At reduced size this doesn't really come across but the image is made up of hundreds of lyers of train timetables.
Probably the most 'movie poster' movie poster I've done in a long time.
Yeah, I like this one. I suspect it's a bit too 'Murakami book jacket' in retrospect.
 
Trying for the 'love story' angle. And the elephant's butt demographic.
