This alternative movie poster is a lighthearted approach for the campy 2006 movie about the life of Marie Antoinette, the eponymous French queen from Sofia Copolla. The image is a stylized portrait of Marie Antoinette with a French style coiffure topped with flowers, pomegranates, birds, and macaroons. The cascading tendrils of hair frame her neck, which is slashed with red, symbolic of her notorious death. Her face is done up like a china doll.
Based of the marvelous sci-fi treat Rise of the Planet of the Apes, this alternative movie poster’s imagery plays off one of the main themes of the movie. The image is an interpretation of “The Creation of Man” by Michaelangelo, using Ceaser, the film’s main ape protagonist reaching towards the gloved hand of a scientist to ignite the spark of sentience.
What does this guy have to do with the creation of humankind? I guess we will find out by watching the new Ridley Scott feature, ‘Prometheus’. This poster is an homage to the new movie and one of the most iconic sci-fi images in movie history. If you are a fan of the new movie, Ridley Scott, or the series in general- or know someone who is- then show your love with this poster print! The main image features the iconic image of the ‘space jockey’, with a hint to the original designer H. R. Giger.
