Here’s the final poster for “The Bling Ring.” Maybe I’m expecting too much from my movie posters, but I don’t really get this.
Oh, the people in the poster are ok. I get that they’re this ring of fame-obsessed teenagers who use the Internet to track celebrities’ whereabouts in order to rob their homes. (I didn’t get all that from the poster, but that’s what I know about the movie.)
But the lettering just sort of lies there like a rug. Shouldn’t it be more blingy? Or maybe that’s the point – that there IS no bling. That these people are just doing the wrong thing, and the black lettering that looks like it was pieced together by a first-grader sort of signifies that. Yeah, I probably expect too much.
“The Bling Ring” opens in theaters May 16, 2013.
