Designers Benedetto Papi and Edoardo Santamato of Invasione Creativa have two great loves in their lives – motion pictures and World Cup soccer. Both are on display in their new series “MOV(i)E TO WORLD CUP,” which features World Cup-themed movie posters that they created to “mix up our great passions.” Included in this brief but wonderful ménage à trois of soccer, cinema and design are tributes to some of the World Cup’s biggest players and movies like Pulp Fiction, 300, Godzilla, A Clockwork Orange and Skyfall.
The USA poster strikes me as an interesting pick, because I’d never think ET when I think of a truly American movie. I’d have probably gone with Wall Street, Patton or probably the most appropriate idea imaginable – Big Trouble in Little China, the greatest movie ever made. What’s that? Captain America is a better choice? I guess. If you’re into being really obvious.
