Limbo movie poster fanmade by jarredspekter Limbo movie poster fanmade by jarredspekter
Based on the downloadable X-box game Limbo by Playdead studios; a surrealistic platformer with a simple plot (boy goes to rescue sister) surrounded by unique and menacing black and white purgatorial world of traps, unfriendly natives, and inconstant gravity.
I'd imagine given the games weirdness a Limbo movie would be an art film. The quote and awards I borrowed from a poster for the animated French horror feature called 'Fear(s) Of the Dark'.
Seemed appropriate.

By request and because its fun I'm thinking of eventually making movie posters for at least some of my fake movie trailers. Hope you enjoy the trailer and the poster and both inspire you to check out this haunting title :)

I really liked the trailer you made for this. It gave a story, and in my mind, a kind of ending, to this "neverending" game.

Here's an idea I had if there was ever to be a Limbo movie: There would be mostly animation like the game, with a few live action scenes to string the story together. I would also have multiple voice overs telling the same story, as if multiple people are having the same dream.
Each time the Boy dies, a new actor begins reading, until the pyschiatrist interviewing them goes under and has the dream himself, and is answering his own questions.

Just to shake things up a bit.

My, that was something. Don't know if Limbo could be made into a movie, but that would be a good way to do it.

I played the trial on this game and loved it! I want to get it (at least when the price drops) This would probably, as you said, be an art movie. However I wouldn't expect it to be in the actual theaters. But I would definitely netflix it!

The only problem I saw was that the actual concept art picture is a bit to bright. If it had more contrast to it it might look better and it would match the big "Limbo" Letters a bit more.

I do like what you did with the text though. It's the little details that make it amazing!

Thanks :) Its always the shows with a darker tone that get better praise like Batman, Justice League, Gargoyles and so on.
