Welcome back to the Millennium Movie Poster Project Gallery Showcase and Day Nine, our final review of some of the entries for the competition.
This first entry features the opening quote from first season episode “Dead Letters”. Also amongst the signs, names and imagery is a reference to Phaestos, a name last used to reference Al Pepper in the episode “Powers, Principalities, Thrones and Dominions”. Maybe this movie will feature Legion at its heart?
Today’s second image is very much a teaser, sporting no overt reference to Millennium at all! The mask and tone may, however, indicate a return to the themes of the second season finale two-parter The Fourth Horseman / The Time Is Now.
And finally, another intriguing proposition. “Millennium: Next” is the title of this movie, featuring the ouroboros intertwined with the triquetra, a symbol with Celtic links that usually signifies things or people that are threefold in nature. Quite what this may mean is a tease in itself, but this poster offers us much more: a barren desert juxtaposed against snow-topped mountains, the shadows of Peter Watts and Catherine in the background of each, plus Frank Black in a black suit and tie – maybe relating to a funeral and hence another death of someone close to him? The tagline too tells us to expect everything to have changed in ways we don’t yet understand.
Indeed, that has been one of the joys of sharing these poster entries here: the sheer variety of ideas and their visual representations that consideration of a Millennium movie has inspired. Once again thank you to every single one of the artists who took the time to enter.
All that remains is for us to announce the winners of the competition, and that will be coming very soon, right here at Back to Frank Black. Once the winners have been announced we will also be updating these galleries with the artists’ details, so be sure to check back again soon for that as well as the all-important announcement itself…
