    Tom Hooper's 'The King's Speech' Gets The Poster It Deserves

    After the whole debacle that was the universally hated and despised first poster for Tom Hooper's "The King's Speech," the marketing team behind the film have now pulled their socks up and unveiled a poster worthy of an award season contender led by Colin Firth, Geoffrey Rush and Helena Bonham Cart...

    In Theaters: 'Faster,' 'Love And Other Drugs,' 'The King's Speech'

    A lot of dessert options this week if you can make it out to the theater after shoving down all that turkey and fixings. The most satisfying option is probably Disney's "Tangled," which considering it has a pretty white princess as the center of the story, should do great business this weekend, but most likely not enough to knock the boy wizard from the top spot in his second week. Christina Aguilera and Cher team up in the musical fable "Burlesque," which should attract a broad age range of women and gay men. "Faster" marks the return of The Rock from the kiddie-flick ghetto, but "Unstoppable" has better reviews and should provide decent com...

    'The King's Speech' Director Tom Hooper Hates The Poster Too; Replacement Forthcoming

    There've been a fair few sub-par posters this year, but none quite as flabbergasting as the one revealed for Oscar front-runner "The King's Speech" last week. Apparently designed by a first-time Photoshop user during Bring Your Child To Work Day at the marketing wing of the Weinstein Company, it mad...

    Oscar Contender 'The King's Speech' Gets A First Year Graphic Design School Poster

    So, this is how you're going to market your Oscar contender? While the film has won over audiences who've seen "The King's Speech" at festival screenings so far -- and took home the audience award at TIFF -- The Weinstein Company have a tough road to travel if they want to get audiences to fork over...

    London Film Fest '10: 'The King's Speech' Is A Solid Crowd-Pleaser, But Not A Home Run

    Every year, there's always one film that screens at a fall festival and, overnight, becomes a major awards contender. In 2008, it was "Slumdog Millionaire," in 2009 it was "Up in the Air." This year, the rapturous reaction that "The King's Speech" received at Telluride, and its Audience Award win at Toronto, saw the period drama take its place as a lock among the ten Best Picture nominees, and perhaps the only film to emerge from the field as of yet that could challenge the presumptive front-runner "The Social Network." Having missed it at Toronto, we had one question going into the film's premiere at the London Film Festival on Thursday nigh...
