    Theatrical one-sheet for Bong Joon Ho's Parasite (2019).

    Parasite – original Korean title: 기생충 – is a 2019 South Korean dark comedy thriller directed by Bong Joon Ho (The Host, Mother, Okja, etc.). The typography on the poster and in the trailer uses classic centre-aligned and all caps typography with a twist (the Korean-language poster uses a literal ‘twist’ in the movie logo, see last image).

    The movie logo is set in uppercase Gotham, customized with oldstyle serifs on various terminals. On the poster, the director and cast names are set in various weights of Gotham.
    Near the top, the tagline “Misplaced Familyhood” is also set in all caps, using Garamond (it looks like it could be Garamond Premier Display).

    The nicely animated reviews/blurbs throughout the trailer are set in loosely spaced Linotype Didot eText Italic along with the sources set in Gotham.

    The billing block at the end is also set in varying sizes of Linotype Didot.
