This looks terrible (full poster below)! Surely this isn’t the best the creatives handling the marketing materials for the film could come up with.
And when you consider the film’s synopsis (two dueling choir members of a small-town’s Gospel Choir, have differing opinions on how to win the national choir competition; sparks fly when pone’s grandson proposes big changes to the choir and falls in love with the other’s daughter), it’s even more puzzling! There’s very little connection between synop and poster IMHO.
This looks more like a poster ad for American Idol!
Anyway… Joyful Noise stars Queen Latifah, Dolly Parton, Keke Palmer, Jesse L. Martin, Courney B. Vance and others.
It’ll be in theaters January 13, 2012.
Full poster below, and film’s trailer if you missed it the first time.
