'Tree of Life': See poster here

Posted on

The answer to the above headline is “no.” Using the psychic-movie-poster powers of premonition granted to me by the gods of movie advertising, I have cast my mind forward through the next nine months of 2011, and have concluded that there is no conceivable way that any upcoming movie will have a poster as beautiful, strange, engrossing, or mysterious as the just-released one-sheet for The Tree of Life, the upcoming movie by art-film hero Terrence Malick that stars Brad Pitt and Sean Penn. It’s still unclear exactly what The Tree of Life is all about (though check out the trailer here if you want to play detective), and the joy of the poster is how it simultaneously seems to show us so much — showing 70 scattered images from the film — while not really revealing a darn thing. Don’t believe me? Check out the full-sized image after the jump…

Am I alone in thinking that this is officially the snazziest poster of the year? At least until X-Men: First Class reveals the long-rumored poster showing Young Magneto and Young Professor X playing poker with dogs? Can any other poster possibly compare?
