It’s the Friday before a holiday weekend so today’s poster is a step away from the somber tone of the last two. It also happens to be related to one of the best Sci-Fi movies in recent history. I’m of course referring to Luc Besson‘s The Fifth Element staring Bruce Willis, Gary Oldman, Milla Jovovich, and Chris Tucker in what I’m starting to believe was the performance of a lifetime.
This sci-fi action epic has everything you want in a movie, fantastic locations, awesome villains, stuff blowing up all over the place, aliens and an “end of the universe as we know it” plot line. In addition to the great visual aesthetics The Fifth Element contains a plot device very rarely, if ever, used. Throughout the entire movie the main protagonist and (arguably) the main antagonistic never meet or even see each other. Now that you’ve scooped you brain off the walls let’s get to the poster.
I went with bright colors and a skinny font that reminded me of old Pan Am posters for Hawaii. In the movie you don’t really see the planet so I decided to just stick to the ship floating over the sea at sunset.
Thanks for looking, hopefully I can keep this schedule up.
PS Next time you make ramen only use half a packet, then add a little teriyaki sauce and the usual amount of sriracha. It is so good.
