Final “Greta” Poster Isn’t Pretty But Embodies Film’s Personality

When Greta premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival last September, no one really knew what to expect.  But viewers (including myself) were pleasantly surprised with the final result as both Isabelle Huppert and Chloë Grace Moretz delivered fantastic performances to bring the awkward, dark thriller/comedy to life.

Now that the film is four weeks away from its theatrical bow, we’ve got the final poster from distributor Focus Features.

Though a bit weird and unusual, the poster does fit the tone of the film, even if it isn’t the easiest thing to look at.  Huppert’s head and Moretz’s body don’t match up well, which isn’t a huge deal - but it should be noted that it isn’t a great look for either actress.

Poster aside, the film is fun and intoxicating as we watch a lonely older French piano teacher court the attention of a younger, naïve woman when she does the morally right thing and returns a purse that was left on the subway.

Greta hits theaters on March 1.

About Stephen Davis

Stephen Davis
I owe this hobby/career to the one and only Stephanie Peterman who, while interning at Fox, told me that I had too many opinions and irrelevant information to keep it all bottled up inside. I survived my first rated R film, Alive, at the ripe age of 8, it took me months to grasp the fact that Julia Roberts actually died at the end of Steel Magnolias, and I might be the only person alive who actually enjoyed Sorority Row…for its comedic value of course. While my friends can drink you under the table, I can outwatch you when it comes iconic, yet horrid 80s films like Adventures in Babysitting and Troop Beverly Hills. I have no shame when it comes to what I like, and if you have a problem with that, then we’ll settle it on the racquetball court. I see too many movies to actually win any film trivia contest, so don’t waste your first pick on me. My friends rent movies from my bookcase shelves, and one day I do plan to start charging. I long to live in LA, where my movie obsession will actually help me fit in, but for now I am content with my home in Austin. I prefer indies to blockbusters, Longhorns to Sooners and Halloween to Friday the 13th. I miss the classics, as well as John Ritter, and I hope to one day sit down and interview the amazing Kate Winslet.
