Poster for Savages looks an awful lot like Babel


There’s a new poster out for Savages, Oliver Stone’s movie about pot growers pissing off the wrong Mexican drug cartel and having to deal with the consequences. It looks good, but it’s not that original. Several other movie posters have used a similar style. The closest match is 2006’s Babel, starring Brad Pitt.

I’m not condemning the poster, since lots of designers borrow from each other, but the design makes much more sense for Babel considering the style and themes of that film. At least this catches the eye, but whether it matches the approach of Savages is another thing.
