Poster Rating: C / C / C

Review: (#1) For the most part, this design is dull, a lifeless form that has a thankfully creative array of characters that doesn’t feel blocky.
(#2) The four widows are well visualized, though the lower image isn’t. The dark and plain structure and colors don’t embellish it. (#3) Increasing the size of the figures in the lower half of the second design makes for a more visually interesting design, but it still feels hopelessly mediocre.
Trailer Rating: B / B+

Review: (#1) If you read about this film before seeing the trailer, you might get the wrong impression of it. That said, the impression the trailer gives is a solid one and definitely makes it look like something worth catching.
(#2) Although there are standard trappings of the heist film present in the trailer, there are sufficient unique turns that might help build an unexpected audience for the film.
With the cast, you might think this was a solid Oscar contender; however, looking at the trailer for the first time, I suspect it won’t be as much of a player as we once thought.
