Review: (#1) Black power vs. white power. It’s a dichotomy that infuses the essence of the film, which gives the poster design plenty of weight.
(#2) Another strong poster design for this film with the symbolic white-pointed hat in the background. While it’s not as amusing as the first poster, it’s no less biting. (#3) American in black-and-white, that’s what this poster suggests with its color-less flag design that has interesting ways the foreground image interacts with it.
Trailer Rating: B+

Review: It’s been awhile since a Spike Lee joint has looked this compelling. With early reception being almost rapturous, the trailer only solidifies the kind of early buzz needed to sell the movie.
This will be one of the year’s big Oscar players thanks to its superb reception at Cannes.
