This type of poster design, with the heads and part of the torso of the two main characters depicted above the title, and a landscape with one of the characters depicted below the title, seems to be quite common nowadays. Cinemablend points out the DVD cover for Miss Potter, which is very similar. And this poster for the latest cinematic incarnation of Jane Austen’s Pride & Prejudice also follows the same pattern:
Interestingly, the poster for Becoming Jane gives out out a much lighter and fluffier vibe than the Pride & Prejudice poster, probably because of the expression of the characters, the background and the lightening. As a matter of fact, the poster for Becoming Jane makes the film seem a little too light and fluffy for my tastes.
And in case anyone is interested, and went to see Pride & Prejudice, and quite enjoyed it. So it’s not like I dislike all romantic movies.
