"Elisa Lam", Elevators and User-created Posters [Roast Pork Sliced From A Rusty Cleaver] (飲水思源)

Already, fan-generated posters have surfaced for the Elisa Lam (藍可兒) movie. It's a pretty poor example of netizen artwork, though I like capsulizing the story down to the elevator buttons. Much more creative work needed.

Most fan posters for Chinese films are virtually indistinguishable from the real things and sometimes even better. Some recent examples are shown further below. Let's hope for something more imaginative for "Elisa Lam" in the future.

Elsewhere, at the Hong Kong premiere of "The Lone Ranger" two nights ago, Ankie Beilke expressed interest in taking on the lead role and asked her manager to contact the director. And Anthony Wong has also been invited/name-dropped to play one of the hotel guests!

In other elevator-related news, Nick Cheung has shot an elevator scene based on the real CCTV-video footage for his upcoming directorial debut Yu Lan Magic. Cheung has been criticized for being disrespectful to the dead. (Will the scene be eventually excised?) The horror film features Carrie Ng, Annie Liu and is slated for a 2014 release.

Well, this post originally started as post about fan-made posters and I've gone astray. So, back to the putative topic - movie posters by Chinese film fans:

A couple fan-generated concept posters for Jacob Cheung's upcoming "The White-Haired Witch" starring Fan Bingbing and Huang Xiaoming.

Check out some of these fan-created posters for Zhao Wei's "So Young".
