From IMDb: “Ron Stallworth, an African-American police officer from Colorado, successfully managed to infiltrate the local Ku Klux Klan and became the head of the local chapter.”

Poster Rating: B+ / B / B

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.

Oscar Prospects:

This will be one of the year’s big Oscar players thanks to its superb reception at Cannes.
