    Default Brad Bird Shares An Unused Painted Poster For The Incredibles

    Apropos of nothing, Brad Bird has tweeted out this poster for The Incredibles. it was painted by Robert McGinnis, a veteran of many James Bond posters, the white-with-red-box?*Barbarella?*one sheet and many of the Hard Case Crime paperbacks.



    It's unusual for a McGinnis movie poster for not having a frame-within-a-frame, or lots of white space. Still, it's nice work and Disney missed a trick in not using it.

    It's a great poster, to be sure, but I'm glad they didn't use it. While it was mostly obvious, this post gives away the villain.

    It's not bad but I disagree in that I think they were correct in not using it. It feel kind of flat. The poster they did use has lots of energy and this is just a jumble of images that don't make sense until you've seen the movie. 100% agree with keeping it on the shelf.

    Beautiful poster, rich with detail. I so prefer these over most of today's bland Photoshop jobs.

    It is a gorgeous poster, but it alludes to too many events in the film to work. (There again, I get the impression that The Incredibles took quite a while to reach its final form, based on some of the material in the extra features - particularly the rather bad "I am mother, hear me roar!" scene that was originally going to be the opening sequence...)
    When in doubt, "Try not to be a dick" is usually a good place to start.

    I agree it shouldn't have been used, but quite like it - especially how Mom seems to be putting her foot up Dad's ***.

    I actually have this poster hanging in my apartment right now. I love it!
    When the movie came out there was a number you could call on the card Mirage gave to Mr. Incredible in the movie. You got a secret message from Mirage and she told you a website to go to. After sending them your info they sent you a poster. Pretty cool!
