While we dive deep into Hollywood’s poster offerings each month, looking at the best and worst studio-produced one-sheets, it’s time to put our money where our mouth is. At The Film Stage, we believe that if some care is taken, a poster can be a distinct creation onto itself to be observed and admired. Launching today is a monthly feature in which the talented designer Midnight Marauder creates an original, alternate poster for one of the month’s releases.

This month is for Ned Benson‘s The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby, which hits theaters today in its Them form. The black-and-white poster evokes the fleeting memories James McAvoy‘s character has for that of his estranged wife (played by Jessica Chastain) in the drama. Check it out below and make sure to read our extensive interview with the director here.


The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby: Them is now in limited release.
