Stagecoach!

Hey, it looks like we've announced our May titles, including the first (or second, I guess) of the three favorites I mentioned the other day: John Ford's Stagecoach!



I'll give this a proper design-y post closer to the actual release date, but for now I'll just mention how much I love this movie! Uniformly great characters, surprisingly intense action, and just incredibly fun to watch, start to finish. I always thought of myself as more a Clint Eastwood guy than a John Wayne guy, but this totally turned me around--and, incidentally, started a whole Western kick around our house for a while. I *might* still give The Man Who Shot Liberty Valence the nod as the best Wayne/Ford movie, but Stagecoach is damn close!

That letterpress look is KILLER!

I was going to comment on what Rico said.

There's definitely some debossing going on so I immediately thought letterpress inspired too.

Can you spill the beans on if you're doing anything special print wise? It would be great as a digi-pak. Too bad you stopped doing them for the blu-rays.

That's actually meant to evoke a silkscreen/letterpress-style look where the inks are laid down by hand and so the registration is slightly off, rather than any kind of fake emboss/deboss effect. But thanks for the kind words nonetheless, Alphonse!

Nothing particularly special planned for the packaging at the moment, though I agree this could have looked great printed on board. I do love our digis, but the extra cost is tough to justify on a regular basis...

You've really outdone yourself on this one. The type! The colors! The tempered excitement of balance!

How can I get this on a poster? My wall yearns for Stagecoach!

Great cover for a fantastic film!

Though I'd have to point to The Searchers as my favorite Ford/Wayne collaboration.
