Imposters #22, bonus edition - Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom

Idris Elba is just the best, so I can't not throw a little love his way. Also, I like the poster design a lot.

Isn't that nice? It's got a great, strong retro style. And I love the way color is used, divided into sections, highlighting the negative space and the text, in addition to its subject. Red, yellow, and black with a fringe of green and careful use of white in the corner are easy on the eyes.

Actually, if they had just added a touch of deep blue, they'd have the colors of the South African flag.

I guess the big-n-bold approach makes it more palatable that they note just two of the actors, with "NOW PLAYING" as the release date. It's just a shame that this isn't much promotion, since the film has already been released...
