Have I ever mentioned ...
... that I like a movie poster with a lot of yellow in it?
Well, maybe I didn't realize it until the Crank: High Voltage posters began appearing about six weeks ago. But every time I'm stopped in traffic and one of these posters is in my line of vision, I'm drawn to it, and don't look away until the light turns green.
No, I don't have a man crash on Jason Statham, but there's something captivating about this poster. Its simplicity gives it a throwback feel, which is helpful for a movie franchise so drenched in id that it nearly functions as exploitation.
I'm not sure if I'll make it to this one in the theaters, but I can say that the original Crank was ten times more fun than it had any right to be. Here's hoping the same fate for High Voltage.
