The font used for the film title in the poster is ITC New Baskerville Roman. The serif typeface is one of many contemporary type families based on the work of John Baskerville, a writing master and printer from Birmingham, England, whose types were cut by the punchcutter John Handy.
ITC New Baskerville is a late 20th-century interpretation of Baskerville’s style, designed by John Quaranda. It makes an excellent and very readable text face, yet its sharp, high-contrast forms make it suitable for elegant headline settings as well.
