A R-rated remake of John Hughes' classic 1980s comedy
Unpopular teenagers, fail at all attempts to be accepted by their peers. Their desperation to be liked leads them to "create" a woman via their computer. Their living and breathing creation is a gorgeous woman, Lisa, whose purpose is to boost their confidence level by putting them into situations which require the boys to act like men. On their road to becoming accepted, they encounter many hilarious obstacles, which gives the movie an overall sense of fun and silliness.
Weird Science is a remake of the successful comedy of the same name directed by the legendary John Hughes in 1985. Deadline, which has the exclusive on this story, says that Universal has entrusted Michael Bacall with the responsibility of scripting the remake, which is going to be “an edgier R-rated comedy in line with 21 Jump Street and The Hangover.” For those who don’t recognize the name: Bacall wrote the story and script for Project X, in addition to co-writing the scripts for Scott Pilgrim vs. the World, 21 Jump Street and next year’s 21 Jump Street sequel.
I took on this project as a challenge from my mentor, he pushed my to try my hand at comedy. All genres have their own unique challenges but comedy poster are by far the hardest to create. It all comes down to body language, bright colors and composition. Action, Sci-Fi and Horror are all usually pretty dark and allow you to hide so many things. But with comedy and this poster in particular everything is bright and happy and all out their for the viewer to see.
I am a huge fan of the first film and I wanted to create a fun yet edgy poster that could embody what Michael Becall might have in mind for the film.
This is my first attempt at the comedy genre but I enjoyed making it and I hope you like it. Let me know what you think of my poster and whether you think this remake is a good idea or not.
