Us Brian De Palma-loving sorts have been impatient about the release of his return to thrillers, Passion, a growing sensation that only amplifies as it hits international markets one-by-one. Further stoking those flames of jealousy and anticipation is a poster made for its upcoming Turkish release — thankfully, we can exclusively bring it to you today.

Although this isn’t saying a great deal, we also have, here, a far more artful representation of De Palma‘s typical intentions than some simple, cheap sales poster that’s become a central marketing item since Cannes — a situation not at all dissimilar to how Turkish posters for The Master (designed, like this, by Koray Doyran) wiped the floor with its domestic counterpart. Why are they getting such better one-sheets, anyway?
Passion will open in Turkey on April 5th, and you can take a look at the work below thanks to Calinos Films:
