Poster for Jeff Nichols’ ‘Take Shelter’

Take Shelter poster

We were suitably impressed by Jeff Nichols’ sophomore effort Take Shelter when we saw it back in June at the Sydney Film Festival. Now thanks to Movieline we can have a look at the suitably minimalist US poster for the psychological thriller and (possible) disaster film. Or is it? That would be spoiling the fun though, wouldn’t it?

At the time we called it “simply astounding” and “a film that totally captures the zeitgeist”. Yes, we are desperate for a pull-quote. Clearly neither of those made it onto the US poster below. Perhaps we can always hold out hope for the eventual Australian release.
