poster convergence: ‘North by Northwest’ and ‘Buried’

Saul Bass, call your office.
Claustrophobia and paranoia: the suspense filmmaker’s best friend. And hard straight lines are the postermaker’s best friend.

In case you’re not familiar with it, Buried (official site, IMDB), coming this autumn, is about Ryan Reynolds getting buried alive, and presumably having to save himself. It’s like Phone Booth, but deadlier. Or maybe more like The Vanishing.

    Really? Looks more like a squared-off Vertigo to me.

    The Buried poster has Vertigo-y undertones.

    Ha! I didn’t see that first comment when I posted.
