From IMDb: “Based on the novel by Charles Dickens.”

Poster Rating: C / B / C+

Review: (#1) There isn’t much to this design except a sideways glance that’s hard to interpret. The rest is dull and bold only in terms of its colors. (#2) Lots of details here while there’s still some dry spaces. Regardless, it is quite fitting to the film’s setting.

(#3) There’s nothing particularly inspired here and the characters are poorly mixed into a whole that doesn’t otherwise exist. The vacant space at top and bottom are reserved for lettering, but could have been more visually interesting.

Trailer Rating: B+

Review: This humorous trailer should do well in creating interest in the film, but the story, which is supposed to be familiar, isn’t as obvious within the various cuts of the trailer.

Oscar Prospects:

Production Design and Costume Design look like strong possibilities, possibly even Makeup & Hairstyling. Beyond that, it would depend on how well the film is received.
