One of These Things is Not Like the Other

Covers for There Will Be Blood

What do you notice about the above covers for There Will Be Blood? Look closely at the title for the cover on the right. The blackletter type can make it hard to see. The cover on the right reads “Where Will Be Blood”

Some friends loaned me this “advanced” copy (doesn’t release on Amazon until the 8th of April) of the movie last night and I had to share the cover. Take a look at the text on the back and see if you can make any sense of the copy.

Funny body copy

You can see a larger version with more of the great text here. I can’t really give a full review of the movie because the advanced beta copy from China skipped around a bit and I am pretty sure that I missed some important parts. I can say however that the movie, in my opinion, is not too bad. I don’t think it is as great as most people claim, but not too bad. The music was very interesting. Jason Kottke has links to lots more information and reviews.

    Nerd related, but an example of a larger scale cover mistake.
