AMP Teams Up With Lionsgate & Irvine Welsh To Design A “Filth” Alt Movie Poster

Simon over at the wonderful website, Alternative Movie Poster (AMP) has just announced their next competition.  This time out they are collaborating with Lionsgate and in association with Irvine Welsh and director Jon S. Baird they are launching a contest to create an alternative movie poster for the film “Filth.”

_filth-posterHere is the official synopsis for the film.  Scheming Bruce Robertson (James McAvoy), a bigoted and corrupt policeman, is in line for a promotion and will stop at nothing to get what he wants. Enlisted to solve a brutal murder and threatened by the aspirations of his colleagues, including Ray Lennox (Jamie Bell), Bruce sets about ensuring their ruin, right under the nose of unwitting Chief Inspector Toal.

Filth: watch James McAvoy as drug-crazed cop - videoAs he turns his colleagues against one another by stealing their wives and exposing their secrets, Bruce starts to lose himself in a web of deceit that he can no longer control. His past is slowly catching up with him, and a missing wife, a crippling drug habit and suspicious colleagues start to take their toll on his sanity. The question is: can he keep his grip on reality long enough to disentangle himself from the filth?

Here is what Simon had to say about the project:  With the recent release of the film on DVD, we are looking for a brand new design which will be used across the film’s social media channels – the winning entry will be handpicked by Irvine Welsh and John S. Baird themselves, which is fantastic!  There are no restrictions to this competition or mandatories, just… be creative.


The winning design will  be produced as a one off giclee print, and the winner will also receive a limited edition Steelbook copy of the film.  3 runners-up will each receive a copy on DVD.

Well, you heard the man, get crackin!  All entries for this contest are to be sent to no later than March 7th, 2014.  Head over to AMP’s WEBSITE or follow them on TWITTER for updates.
