After a festival-circuit tour that included a world premiere at Sundance and a Best Director prize in the Un Certain Regard section of Cannes, Matt Ross’ “Captain Fantastic” is set to hit theaters next month. Apropos of its subject matter — Viggo Mortensen plays a father of six living in the wilds of the Pacific Northwest — the film has just released a striking new poster for Father’s Day designed by Shepard Fairey in collaboration with Studio Number One. Obey the famous street artist’s wishes and check out the new art above.
Fairey first came to attention for his Andre the Giant Has a Posse stickers in the late ’80s and gained even wider renown after designing the “Hope” poster for Barack Obama’s 2008 presidential campaign. (Said campaign was a successful one, in case you didn’t know.)
Best known for his acting work in “Silicon Valley,” “American Horror Story” and “American Psycho,” Ross made his directorial debut with “28 Hotel Rooms” in 2012. “Captain Fantastic,” which Bleecker Street is releasing on July 8, is his second feature as writer/director.
